Unfortunately this is a repair issue. There are several failures that can occur, none of which will be resolved without service, that create this safeguard situation. Often the fpc cable which carries sensor information to the micro has been injured and that requires repair. Good luck, magic seadog

On page 51 of your manual, it states that an error has occurred and recommends resetting it by removing your battery, waiting a few minutes to clear it, and then resuming. If that doesn't clear the issue, then it may need servicing.

I thought this was a camera issue, but it ended up being a tape issue. So it shouldn't matter if you have the same model of the JVC mini camcorder as I did or not. Anyway, the tape has a tab that "locks" the tape to keep from recording over it accidently. I moved that tab and it started working. If your tape is stuck in the camera, you may have lost the tape already. Try to get it out of the camera without damaging the tape or the camera...more importantly the camera. You may have to take it to a professional to prevent damage. If you get it out undamaged, check to see if the tape is locked or not. Move the tab and try the tape in the camera again (unless you're afraid of it getting stuck again). In that case, try it in another camera. That's how I discovered that this was a tape issue rather than a camera issue...because I tried the same tape in a different camera and got the same error message. Don't despair if your tape comes out with part of it sticking out or crumpled, as long as it's not broken, you can salvage it. Even if it's broken, you can probably salvage the majority of the tape by taping it back together (call a professional, you may need special tape for this), just don't touch any of the undamaged tape or pull it out of the cassette too far and all you will lose is the damaged portion. I actually couldn't see the tab well enough to tell if it was in locked or unlocked mode since it's so tiny and my close-up vision is getting blurry, but I moved the tab to opposite of what it was and that seemed to do the trick. My mistake was in trying to save money with the cheaper time I'll spend a little extra for the better tapes to avoid all this headache. Hope this helped. Have a great day!

There should be an error code star with E-01 to E-06.Below is an example you have to make sure that which error code showing on your camera
Whenever some abnormal signal is input to the syscon CPU,
an error number (E01, as an example) is displayed on the
LCD monitor or (in the electronic view finder).
In every error status, such the message as shown below
E01 LOADING--------
1. The mechanism is locked during mode shift.
2. The mechanism is locked at the mechanism loading
end, because the encoder position is skipped during
mechanism mode shift.
3. No power is supplied to the loading MDA

This kind of symptom appears in camcorder when its video head got dirty/ clogged, put video head cleaning tape in camcorder and clean head as per instructions provided with cleaning tape.
You can buy video head cleaning tape from Radio Shake or any store.

I have an jvc gr-sxm250 svhsc & need to transfer taped recordings to computer for disk pacing on disk,however i 'm clueless on what do. have a ubs-cord, but cannot find a link-port on camera. can you...

This is analog machine, you can not connect directly via digital connection. You need a capture device(composite to USB) available in the market. In case of Desktop Computer a PCI TV TUNER card that has video input can be used to capture videos from you tape. But, video quality in this set up is not as good as videos from digital sources like digital camcorder. Good luck

Lens cap error - blue screen JVC Camcorder GR-SXM25. I can playback but when i go to record I get a blue screen with the error.

Change CCD. If you are technically inclined you can do it, but take a lot of care not to damage flexible wires. Otherwise have it service by the company. Good luck

E04 Error

Eject tape leaving cover open and remove battery. Re-insert battery and re-insert tape also leaving cover open. Keep repeating this process until eo4 message disappears. This worked for my GR-DVL100e after about four repeats. After getting your camcorder operational, they say it is good practice not to leave tape in camcorder when not in use.

Can't get it to work

It looks like your Camcorder will need professional service. This model is famous for blown fuses, however these are surface mounted components about the size of a pin head. Not a user servicable situation. Good luck, magic seadog
