Question about JVC GR-D22U Camcorder
This has been doing this on our camcorder for a long time. we have tried letting sit out for days, it is a dry environment, even a hair dryer on cool/warm etc. blowing air and everything does not solve it. it won't even let me close the cassette door. Is there a sensor or something that can be repaired.
I found instructions with pictures on fixing this problem online at
The process involves taking the camera apart.
Other forums I have looked at have mentioned waiting the error out or allowing the camera to air out.
I hope this helps.

I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let you use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap.
I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.

Tips for a great answer:
This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
