Question about JVC GR-D290 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a JVC mini DV model GR-D27OU when I turn it on the screen says safeguard mode then switches to say remove battery & reattach. I've done that turned it off and back on and it still says that. The only solutions I found in forum dealt with safeguard mode and mini tape error. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
There should be a error code,what is that?

Day after thanksgiving, (year 2008) about to film my girls putting the tree and same E03 as all of you with the camera chewing my tapes. All of my DV cassettes are brand JVC so I know that was not the issue. I read and read and finally decided to grab a flashlight and study how the mechanism move. Then I noticed something suspicious about the right "two little spikes" attached to a white plastic piece that, when close, it moves to the right side of the camera head (the round stainless wheel inside). The white plastic piece mentioned above, part of it came off the guiding tiny little rail. 1. So I opened the tape compartment with an EJECT command, 2. Close it back up with an inmediate unplug of the camera without battery so it will stay in a position where I can get my fingers and paper clip inside. 3. With the paper clip, stretch the guiding rail in such a way that it widens so the bottom of the white plastic thingy can get back in the guiding rail. 4. Put a cassette inside and FFWD, PLAY or RWD and problem fixed.
Email me if you have any questions. Happy filming!
