Question about Cameras

Open Question

JVC mini-DVR video camera model GR-D750U not operating properly. Upon tape insertion, it shows error code 03 and goes to "safeguard mode" Already attempted to re-insert tape as directed on camera screen and insert new tape, but the problem persists. Would like a description of the reason for the error, likely causes, possible extent of repairs needed, nominal cost for such repairs, and recommendation on whether this could be fixed at a local JVC service center or if it would need to be sent in to a major center.

SOURCE: Camera is a JVC GR-DF470

Same problem, same camera. Interestingly, it happened after two years and coincidentally when I changed to a different brand of tape (TDK) after using Sony and JVC tapes.

Solution (as suggested on some other web site) is to eject and then manually wind the tape a couple of turns. This can be done by sticking one flat blade screwdriver in the tape locking tab (bottom middle of case) and using another to manually wind the tape reel. Re-insert the tape and there should be no error code and all should work fine.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: We are missing our driver

hello btb..... Don't use USB to transfer video from a miniDV tape based machine. Use Firewire. Cheap and easy to install if your computer has an available PCI slot or PCMCIA slot (laptop).

USB will not be successful. Joe Thanks for choosing Fixya!

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

Gr-dvl-520u trying to record or playback tape it goes into safeguard mode within 5 seconds. alternatly pressing play and still every 3 seconds advanced the playback without it going into safeguard mod


According to http://www.techlore.com/article/10974/JVC-Camcorder-Stuck-in-Safe-Mode/,

"JVC notes that you are also given a malfunction code when the unit is placed into safeguard. If it displays code 01, 02, or 06 you should remove
the battery and powersupply and wait for a while. Code 03 and 04 indicate that you should eject and reinsert the tape.

If neither of these solutions work, your only alternative is to bring it to a shop or send it to JVC for diagnosis or repair. Unfortunately, there is no other way to clear the condition."

If you are getting E03 or E04 errors on every tape you try, it sounds like a servicing is required.

JVC Digital Video Camera - model GR-D290



In the case no REEL FG is produced for 4 sec-onds
or more in the capstan rotation mode af-ter
loading was complete, the mechanism mode
is shifted to STOP with the pinch roller set off.
This error is defined as [E03].
However, no REEL EMG is detected in the
SLOW/STILL mode.
1. The idler gear does not engage with the reel disk well.
2. Though the idler gear and reel disk are engaged with
each other, the tape is not wound because of over-load
to the mechanism.
3. No FG pulse is output from the reel sensor.
4. No power is supplied to the reel sensor.
5. Tape transport operation takes place with a cassette
having no tape inside.
6. The tape slackens and no pulse is produced until the
slack is taken up and the tape comes into the normal
status.
