I called Costco, the retailer I purchased the Everio at in Dec. and they said my labor warranty has run out. They gave me instructions to send the video camera to JVC for repair. If this is a common problem with this unit, I am hoping they will not charge for labor. They should provide at least a one year parts and labor warranty!
sounds as though the focus motor worm gear is binding up. I have ,at times been able to take this assebly off the zoom lens ,oil it and reinstall it. very very light amout of floil, a very thin oil. Also the zoom motors worm gear binding will cause this problem, sometimes one of these motor/worm gear assemblies will have to be replaced.
If you haven't cleaned the video head yet this should be the next step. Get the proper video head cleaning swabs and cleaning solution (usually 100% alcohol or electrical contact cleaner) and open the video tape cassette compartment door. The video drum is the large rotating drum near the bottom of the cassette compartment. Being very careful, (never go up and down (vertically) on the drum), clean the head paying particular attention to the location where the rotating and non-rotating parts meet (that is where the actual video head assemblies are). Also clean the audio/CTL head, capstan, pinch roller and tape guides while you're in there. Give it a test and see if this has solved the problem. If it did not try the following. If you are handy with tools, have a set of jewelers screwdrivers (they can be purchased also and are fairly cheap), a set of magnifying glasses and lots of patience use the screwdrivers to remove the cases of the camcorder. When you get the cases off look for ribbon cables which are loose or out of their connectors. If you don't find any you probably have a problem which is beyond your repair capabilities and you will need to take it to a reputable repair facility. Good luck.
