SOURCE: JVC GR-D70U Condensation

setting the time & date is useless for this problem. i have had mine repaired 2 times for this & its down a third time for the same reason. to me it appears to be a waste of time & money to try & have it repaired. the best solution is to buy a new camcorder, something other than one made by JVC.

SOURCE: Error message ''condensation operation failed''

1. There is a silver condensation detector in the tape compartment, rear left corner. You can try cleaning this with isopropyl alcohol. I have tried this, and it did not resolve the problem.
2. You can open the camera and unplug the power connector. This will reset the camera, and will resolve the issue for several months. I suggest looking further on this site, where there are instructions for which screws to remove to do this. I have done this, and it has resolved the issued for varying lenghts of time on my GR D30U.

SOURCE: Need disk software for jvc gr-d70u camcorder

You don't have to have the software that came with your camera. There are many video capture programs out there. I use Nero Express, but Movie Maker might work too.

I have been unable to import from my camera to my computer for three years, thinking that the problem was the camera. I would plug in the Firewire cord that came with the camera and would get nothing, even on other computers. As a last resort, I got a new Firewire cord today. As soon as I plugged it in and turned the unit to Play, the computer recognized my camera!!!! I am SO excited! When your computer recognizes the camera, it will bring up the programs on your computer that are most likely able to allow you to import the video.

The problem the entire time was the cord! The cord that came with my camera is now in the trash, and I can finally import videos!

SOURCE: JVC GR-D70u don't transfer video to pc

At times the "failed to build a preview graph" error measage appears when the editor has a problem with the capture file format. By STUIO 8 I presume you mean PINNACLE STUDIO 8? Try changing your capture settings, like MPEG to AVI or vice versa.
Otherwise download the latest patch for Studio 8 from . It's free if you have registered your copy of the software.
Let's hear from you again. All the best.

My computer no longer recognizes my JVC GR-D70U mini DV cam when I plug it into a usb port.

Hi, I am not sure. But I believe the camcorder has to be on when you connect to the computer. and I assume you use firewire for this particular camcorder.
I too once had this problem when I used Windows Vista. If you too use Vista, try it with Windows XP.

JVC Picuture gets blurry

The ccd block is starting to fail. Thats the chip thats the eye of the camcorder at the back of the lense assy. Its mounted on a small circuit board. You can find the chip at Its just a matter of dissassembling the camcorder and removing the chip from the board and soldering another onto it taking care not to over heat the chip. You do need good soldering skills.

Condensation, operation paused, JVC Video Camera model GR-D70AS

If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.

leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.

If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing
