Question about JVC GR-D271 Camcorder
Push button, can't even hear the motor working. Took battery off and started again like suggested with eject button on, didn't work. How can I get the tape out, and also is the motor broken?

I have a DVL520U,
I may be lucky from what I have read, but this is what I did. I took out the tape, released the tension on it by pressing the small tab between the wheels (I observed a slight wheel movement). I took the eraser end of a pencil, and while holding the tab, rotated the spindles of the tape 10-15 rotations back and forth (this from the vcr days and tracking problems). I put the tape back in and the problem went away. I thought of this after reading post after post and then finding the definitions of the error codes on a french website. Codes 4-6 seemed to be with the mechanical aspects of the drive, codes 1-3 with the sensors etc. All in all it was a guess on my part. If any of this works for you, pass it along.

The way I can get a tape unjammed on my Sony camera is to remove the battery, plug the camera into the AC charger that is plugged into the wall outlet. Then power the camera on, wait a few seconds. Then unplug the charger from the outlet, wait a few more seconds (camera still in "on" position) and then plug it back in. I have used this method at least 3 times to get the camera to release the tape and finally eject. However, the tape is usually pulled or stretched and I use a small flat head screwdriver to wind the tape back in, but expect that portion of the video to be ruined.

Your capstan motor has a problem, could be stucked-up or sensor fails. No capstan pulse detected.You may check capstan supply and drive as well. Good Luck
