Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG130 Camcorder

CAMCORDER IS BLURRY IN AUTO AND MANUAL MODES IN ALL ENVIROMENTS

I bought the camcorder new a month ago. Every time I power it on, it attempts to focus and looks sharp for less than a second, then immediately goes blurry and will not refocus. This happens indoors and outside. I tried to use the camcorder in auto and manual mode. I went into the setting and restored defaults, but the problem persists. It started doing this last week.

The camera is less than a month old and this sounds like a s/ware issue within the camera.
take it back to the shop where you purchased it.
You should be able to do a straight swap.
hope this helps.

Blurry video recording


Since the camcorder returns to the auto shutter setting and the auto exposure setting when it's switched into Night Capture mode, I would say that might be your problem.  Change your shutter and exposure settings. To do this, switch to Camera mode, turn the menu dial to the setting you wish to change then press enter.  You may have to play with the settings until you get the desired picture. Remember, faster shutter speeds for faster action (stop action), and longer exposure settings for darker situations. Let me know if you need more help.

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 parts.com. 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.

Usually when the recording is started it takes around 10 to 15 seconds for the camera to recognise and display the duration of remaining tape, if you feel there is a problem, try using different brand tape.

Should I use automatic or manual while recording?


Select RCA camcorders feature both an Automatic and a Manual recording mode. Automatic recording places the camcorder into Auto Shot™ mode. Focus, exposure, iris control, white balance, and the video light are controlled by the camcorder during Automatic recording. This mode is particularly handy for those times when you want to be able to just point the camera and record. The Manual recording mode allows you to control many of the elements above yourself, as well as many of the camcorder's special features including Animation and Time Lapse. Manual mode is also where you access the menus and set the clock. Make sure you press in the LOCK button while setting the POWER switch to the desired setting, either "A" (Automatic) or "M" (Manual) record mode.
