Re: Power Light blinks

The fix is really easy and costs nothing, just 10 minutes of your time!

*I fixed mine (twice) this way*

Turn the cam over.
remove all the screws holding the dark plastic bottom on the camcorder, remove it carefully.
Now you will see the ribbon cables, VERY GENTLY, wiggle them from left to right (about 1mm each way), then push them in.
Test by putting your battery back on and see if it holds a tape, or plays without blinking and switching off - you will be happy.

The fault is simply that one cable (I can't tell you which one) becomes loose over time, so it just needs to be pushed back in and the condensation error and/or the door closing problem go away!

A lot of folks are buying cams off eBay like this as it's such a simple repair!

Good luck - please help others - post back if it works!

Recording or playing back

for all of you who have this problem. You can't record or playback anything and your power light is blinking. Just turn it on and off on and off. I did this for about 5 minutes. Just turning off and on and then trying to play or record something then took out the tape and blew with a duster for cleaning your keyboard and that worked. This has happened before and well that worked for me. Hope it helps anyone outthere.

Why dos tv still blinking red with no power

If you pull the plug out of the wall, it should stop. Otherwise it's a reminder that you have switched it off by handset but it is still live. If the TV works ok, ignore it, it is probably just an economy reminder. If the TV does NOT work, you may have a fault on the power supply board. Have you read the manual to see if it mentions the red light?

How to connect Hitachi camcoder with laptop

Connecting to PC via PC Connection Cable
Use the provided PC connection cable to connect the DVD video camera/recorder to PC as shown in the last.

• No data can be written to the HDD, disc or SD memory card in this DVD video camera/recorder when it is connected to PC.
• The PC connection cable does not supply power to the DVD video camera/recorder: Use the AC adapter/charger
to power the DVD video camera/recorder.
• Before connecting the DVD video camera/recorder to PC, disconnect any cables or camera accessories (external
video flash, external microphone, etc.) other than the PC connection cable and AC adapter/charger.
• When connecting the DVD video camera/recorder to PC, the ACCESS/PC indicator will light green. While HDD or
a disc is being accessed, the indicator will light or blink orange. While an SD memory card is being accessed, the
CARD ACCESS indicator will light or blink red.

If you connect the DVD video camera/recorder to PC via PC connection cable, the PC will automatically recognise the DVD video camera/recorder. After recognition is finished, it may be
prompted to restart the PC: In this case, follow the instruction and restart the PC.

Jvc gr-dv800u blinking power light when i plug it in

The camera's battery is charging while the light blinks. When the battery gets fully charged, the led will stay on, indicating that the battery is charged. The manual should explain this, in case you still have it. Good luck, and hope this helps.
