Safe mode will start when a fault gets detected by camcorder control board.

If there is no fault, and the safe mode was triggered because of a temporary problem, then the camcorder will reset simply by removing battery for one minute.

If the Safe mode does not clear after removing and putting back the battery, and you get an error code, then there is an internal fault.

In your case E02 is traction error. This often happens because of mechanical problems in the tape player/recorder drive unit inside the camcorder.

You can try tapping the side of the camcorder with you hand, with the tape inside. Try also playing with Play, Rew. and FF. buttons, in some case that will unlock an E02 error.

If that does not happen, then there is a mechanical failure. In that case the camcorder must be taken apart and repaired by a technician.

Best regards.

Does your camera work of a Power Adapter? If it does, then the battery is most likely at fault. If however it will not, then it will be the camera.

Is it possible to use RCA CC6263 as a WebCam? If so how do you hook it up?

The only way to use this device as a webcam would be to get something called a video capture card for your computer, and it would need to have the "yellow composite video in" on it. And from there it gets much more complicated with how to use the software and making sure you're computer is capable of running it and handling live video streaming through it as well as getting software to record the video you're capturing or to have it converted in real time into a format that your chatting program would understand.
My best advice would be to just get a webcam that hooks up via USB, the prices on them have dropped substantially over the last while and you can find them for as little as 10 dollars. The video capture card would run you at least 60.
Best of luck!

Tape will not eject may be in wrong how do i get it out manually

Open up the door and push the tape in hard and fast. Hopefully it will popup a little to remove it.
Is this an old cassette? If its damaged in any way, or it's been exposed to moisture or extreme heat, it can cause the tape to jam.

If that doesn't work and knowing that this Camcorder has no repairable parts inside, remove the door and turn the load gears in reverse. If this doesn't work, you might need to pry it out. I still have my ancient VHS recorder and had to do that once about 13 years ago. lol
It still works, but I bought new tapes. I'm not sure if those tapes are still available but you could search online for those.

I hope this works!
ps. Just in case you've lost the original User Manual I've attached a link below!

Have a jvc camcorder turn on and it says safe mode remove battery

Forget the battery, the mini dv carrage assy can get out of sync and initiate the safe mode, if you noticed a problem loading the tape or have heard a gear skip sound thats the problem. The best you can do with those camcorders is keep the tape in the camcorder!!!!! That will prevent the problem and insure many good years of recording.

Canon EX1

I have a EX1 Hi8 too and I have had the same problem. This camera is very old and it has a lot of capacitors inside that are leaking and drying out. They need to be replaced. This is a huge and difficult job and it makes no sense to repair. I did it anyway.

Need unit to put tape into, to play in vcr

What you need is a VHS C adaptor. I did a Google search and found at least 10 sites selling them. Rather than cut and paste, I suggest you go to Google and type in "VHS C Adaptor".

My Jvc Digital Video Camera GR-D371u has gone into SafeMode How would I go about getting it out of safemode i need it because i need it for my sisters wedding

JVC has some known faults with their camcorders-- and most of the solutions are outside the abilities of average users. JVC says in this instance, to remove the battery and the charger, and let the camera sit for some period of time. If the camera also has a small battery for keeping the date, remove it as well. Let is sit and then replug it in and see if this cures it.
