    2days after I used the camcoder. I went to rewind the tape but it gave the error E03 - SAFEGUARD MODE - anyone knows how I can fix it ?

  • Anonymous Nov 04, 2008

    I have the same problem. I beleive that the pinch roller has come off. I found what looks to be this piece upon opening ejecting the cassette.



    It looks to be a $.50 peice that has now made this $400 (original price) camcorder essentially a paperweight.



    If anyone has any advice how to fix le me know!

E03 is a tape winding error. I had the same problem. Try a new tape. That's all it took for mine.

Will not play or record, states on screen its in safeguard mode E03


try reseting the camcorder. most electronics go into safe mode when they detect a major problem so nothing else can go wrong. there should be a small pin hole some where that says reset or take out battery for 30 min. if this dose not work then take it somewhere to have it looked at.

JVC mini GR-D23EK Unit in SAFEGUARD mode E03 how to correct it


Hello. What I've found is that in dealing with the error codes your choices are very limited. You can try removing the battery and power supply for a while. This might clear the code, however, failing at that you'll be forced to send in the unit for repair--you are absolutely not alone in getting this type of problem--definitely get a quote first and keep "do I want to replace this unit" in the back of your mind....This is a JVC problem.---Rick

Gr-dvl-520u trying to record or playback tape it goes into safeguard mode within 5 seconds. alternatly pressing play and still every 3 seconds advanced the playback without it going into safeguard mod


According to http://www.techlore.com/article/10974/JVC-Camcorder-Stuck-in-Safe-Mode/,

"JVC notes that you are also given a malfunction code when the unit is placed into safeguard. If it displays code 01, 02, or 06 you should remove
the battery and powersupply and wait for a while. Code 03 and 04 indicate that you should eject and reinsert the tape.

If neither of these solutions work, your only alternative is to bring it to a shop or send it to JVC for diagnosis or repair. Unfortunately, there is no other way to clear the condition."

If you are getting E03 or E04 errors on every tape you try, it sounds like a servicing is required.

E04


Here's what i found. I was able to clear the message by opening and closing and ejecting the cassette. I also had to play with the battery at the same time. Keeping the cassette door open and then pulling out the battery. After is did this a couple of times i got the message to clear. I too haven't used my camcorder for some time and now that the error message has cleared the camcorder tells me that i need to clean the heads. Hope this helps. Below is the message i found that pointed me toward ejecting the cassette. An error indication (E03 or E04) appears. - (E03 or E04 UNIT IN SAFEGUARD MODE REMOVE AND REATTACH BATTERY) This massage a malfunction of some kind has occurred. In this case the camcorder's functions become unusable. - Eject the cassette once and re-insert it, then check if the indication clears. When it does, you can resume using the camcorder. If the indication remains, consult your nearest JVC dealer or service center
