How do I get a jvc camcorder out of safeguard mode. Error 06

Step 1 Look at the camcorder's display to identify if it is in Safeguard Mode. If its display indicates an error number of E01 to E06, your camcorder is in Safeguard Mode.
Step 2 Disconnect your camcorder from its power source and remove its battery by sliding the latch forward and sliding the battery down while pulling it away from the camera's body. Wait at least two minutes before continuing.
Step 3 Remove the camera's cassette by pressing the "Eject" button, waiting for the cassette door to open, and lifting it out of the tape bay. This step is only necessary if the camera indicates the E03 or E04 error code or it tells you to eject and reinsert the tape.
Step 4 Replace the camera's battery, power connection and cassette, and turn the camera on.

I have a jvc gr-sxm26u camcorder and it has two problems... the tape door will not open when the eject button is pushed to the left. 2nd problem. the screen indicates that there is a problem labeled as "...

E01 Mechanism has not fully loaded up to the stop position

E-01, E-02, E-05, or E-06 is an Emergency Error Code. In the event of a malfunction the unit will shut down and display a code which is to inform a technician which area of the camcorder to examine in order to ascertain the nature of the problem. Try the following steps:

1) Remove power source for 1 minute. 2) Reattach power source. 3) Try operating the camera.

The indication E-03 or E-04 is an Emergency Error Code. In the event of a malfunction the unit will shut down and display a code. This is to inform an independent JVC authorized service center which area of the camcorder to examine in order to ascertain the nature of the problem.

The E-03 or E-04 code relates to one of the tape spindles not turning. This could be the result of too much slack on the video tape. If E-03 or E- 04 is displayed it may be possible to correct the problem by removing the tape slack. In order to do this follow these steps:

1) Remove power source for 1 minute.
2) Reattach power source.
4) Repeat above steps until tape ejects.
5) Tighten and insert a new tape."

A common E01 problem with the JVC is caused by electrically conductive residues on the very end of the connector strip which connects the small front circuit panel to the main circuit panel (this residue can only be seen under a microscope). Symptoms are, the mechanism remains closed or the cassette holder will not latch down and remains permanently raised. Basically the micro cannot read the mechanism position data. The connector strip needs to be taken out & carefully cleaned with alcohol.

If all else fails then its a trip to JVC service and a biil of between $`100 and $250 depending on what the problem is. My last E01 was a motor change and cost $180 but the cam has been fine ever since but next cam will be a Canon..

Flashing red symbol like a bowl crossed out

it means you have no back up battery installed to save time/date info. I know on the GL2 if you open the LCD screen there is another small plastic tab you can open and insert a relatively small battery. Do it and the icon will disappear. Otherwise its no big deal. If you dont need time/date stamps on your tapes then there is no need to install the battery unless you are just annoyed.

Dispays End Of Tape/Eject symbol

The tape end sensor, or record sensor has a fault, or the electronics that reads the sensors has a fault. This could be dirt on them, or an actual failure of some type. Without dissassembly and proper troubleshooting, speculation would only be a guess.

The service diagnostics do not show every possible type of failure that can occur in the camera. It only shows the main areas.
