Question about JVC GZHD7 60GB Hard-Drive Camcorder 60 GB USB Hard Drive
When I turn camera on it waits 5 seconds then the Access/Charge and Video/Still lamps all start flashing. That is all that happens, the camera has worked before but this is all that happens now.
I currently have the exact same problem with this camera.
Before this happenned, I was backing up my movies to my laptop, when I received an error on my laptop saying that it was unable to complete backups, and a "Faulty HDD" (0.00 recording time remaining) error on my camera. At this stage, my camera was still in a functional state (minus the HDD). As soon as I restarted the camera however, I am getting those 3 lights to flash for me too.
This is most likely a faulty HDD issue.

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.
If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.
You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.
