JVC Mini DV GR-DVL210 Error E03

Hello, I'm having trouble with my Digital Video Camera. I tried to play back something and it started eating the tape. Then it said the need to have heads cleaned, which I did. Then it keeps saying something about being in safe mode, to remove the battery, and put it back on, which I have. I even went out and replaced the battery, with the same results though. Then it shows an error message of E03.

Can you please help me out with a possible solution? Do you know of any JVC repair centers here in the Twin Cities, MN?

If it's a JVC GR-D72, then it's MiniDV. Connect the camcorder via firewire to your PC

JVC mini GR-D23EK Unit in SAFEGUARD mode E03 how to correct it

Hello. What I've found is that in dealing with the error codes your choices are very limited. You can try removing the battery and power supply for a while. This might clear the code, however, failing at that you'll be forced to send in the unit for repair--you are absolutely not alone in getting this type of problem--definitely get a quote first and keep "do I want to replace this unit" in the back of your mind....This is a JVC problem.---Rick

Does this cam, play the mini dv tapes????

If you are referring to the JVC GR-DVL520, yes it does play Mini DV tapes, as well as records to them. It will not play Mini DV tapes that were recorded on an HDV camera. HDV is used by any Mini DV camera that records HD video.

E04 Error

Eject tape leaving cover open and remove battery. Re-insert battery and re-insert tape also leaving cover open. Keep repeating this process until eo4 message disappears. This worked for my GR-DVL100e after about four repeats. After getting your camcorder operational, they say it is good practice not to leave tape in camcorder when not in use.
