    I don't follow . This is a 700X digital ZOOM camera. What am I supposed to do ?

  • dulanyjr Jul 03, 2009

    Thanks . I have tried to call the repair center (800 252-5722) but all I get are unhelpful recordings. The # given me for JVC Service and engineering just gets me more recordings. Is there a direct # I can call to set up service ?

  • dulanyjr Jul 03, 2009

    I have to leave now for 30 minutes but that 800 # in Lawrenceville is no help. I'll be back.

Try to find the reset button then press it. If reset does not fix then take out the power source,the batteries. The purposed for this is to drained the stored current in memory IC that's do the command,so the stock memory will erase. If still not fix then the problem is the CCD chips is faulty already needs to replaced. So it will works normal again.

Good luck..

Hi,

remove the top cover screw open , be sure unplug power.
Turn the front loading panel gear upside by your finger the movement of tape are visible , sometime this happen during power inruption current unstable , the tape loading out of timinng. or Alternatively, you'll have to manually eject (it as described in the operational manual), and if that would not work too, then you have to unscrew the disc compartment cover, find a small lever with a spring (bottom-right of the disk), rise the lever and push the slide to the right side (Disk locking mechanism) and pull it out.
The error codes are for a stuck or mis-aligned tape.

Unfortunately these palm-corders and Pro-Sumer cam-corders do not have a manual eject like on the much more expensive professional cameras. This problem requires surgery.

You'll need to disassemble the tape door and carefully unwind the tape from the spindles, tape-head, and tensioner arms. Be careful not to scratch the heads!!!! Remove all power (AC and battery) from the unit prior to doing this. Never force any part of the delicate mechanics or the metal tape door.

Once the tape is clear of all the tensioners and heads, apply power and attempt to eject the tape. The camera should activate the tape spindles to take up the slack and eject the tape normally. Remove power and return the tape door cover to it's pre-disassembled state. Test with a NEW TAPE to make sure the camera is feeding tape properly and eject as normal.

After this, clean the tape heads and always use the same brand of tape. Different tapes have different coatings and formulas that can cause issues with your camcorders internal workings.
for tape you need to take the covers off to expose the m-chassis and in the lower right corner there is a tower looking thing thats called the capstan motor it has two solder posts on it you need to apply power to them and the tape will come out be careful pulling the tape out because the ribbon wont go back into the tape you have to do that part by hand.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

How do I get rid of counters and all info onscreen during playback? I am trying to transfer the old vhs-c tapes to my computer.


I'm having this same problem--did you ever figure this out? We are trying to get the time counter off of the screen in order to transfer the footage to the computer w/out the counter appearing. It seems possible because we can reset the time, but we've not yet figured out how to make it disappear. Any help/ideas are appreciated!! Time is of the essence. Thank you!!!

A part has fallen out.


The component that fell out is called a tape guide. The guide assembly fits into the guide rail on the supply side (left side) of the drum. You will notice another guide to the right, this is the take up guide assy, it sits in the guide rail assembly as well. There will be a silver shaft sticking up from the guide rail where the tape guide should be seated, with gentle pressure, the guide should snap back on and the unit should operate correctly. Please do not touch the drum surface as this may damage the video head assembly. Hope this helps you, good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
