Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG20 Camcorder

1 Answer

My GZ-MG20 wont turn on.

When connected to the mains power supply, there is a blinking red light to indicate it is charging, but after hours of 'charging' there is still no power on the camcorder. When disconnected from the mains it appears completely lifeless. Anyone got any ideas???

I just got a brand new flip video mino hd and it wont turn on. i've charged it for atleast 4 hours. when it is plugged in the red light comes on. that is the only response i get from it. any...

I had to charge mine for 7 to 9 hours the first time, and make sure computer is left ON or it won't charge and the red light stays lit until it is fully charged. make sure the red light isn't blinking if it is, plug it into a different USB 2 port and don't use extension with it unless it is a powered USB extension.

The monitor is black. You can't see what you want to record.

Possibly just faulty flex cable,not the entire monitor.

I had similar trouble on my 2nd hand HC32 no picture,no light,no response on touch-screen function - turned out to be faulty flex cable that runs between LCD and the main body.

Cost me around 60 USD to fix by non-SONY service shop.Now it works like new.Worth every dime for this outdated camcorder.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
