JVC Everio GZ-MG20u Hard Disck Camcorder

My Everio won't power on. It hasn't been used in about 4 months and hasn't been dropped or anything. I've tried recharging the battery and replacing the ac adapter. Nothing is working. Is there a reset button? It was purchased in Feb of 2006, so it is out of the manuf. warr. How can i get this fixed? I do have video I don't want to lose, on the hard drive.

Thanks, Char

It does have a reset button. When you open the lcd door, look at the bottom of where the lcd opens, you will see a small area that says reset.

Also, there is an option in the menu that allows you to restore the harddrive. That may help as well, your hard drive may have gotten corrupted.

Here is the JVC website for this model, I would suggest reading the manual available there. It is in PDF so you will need adobe reader.

I haven't turned the camera on for a couple of years. I've tried charging the battery, but I can't get it to power up. Do I need to replace battery or is it something else?


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
