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.

Good Luck!

I am looking for a web cam driver for my JVC GZ MG20U Video Camcorder.

This will not work as webcam, since when you connect it to USB, it will be detected as external drive. No hardware inside that can support webcam function. Sorry

I'm having the same issue on my older JVC GZ-MG model. It seems to only happen in low light situations. I can't believe there is nothing on the web about this.
