If your getting a reel error, then the chances are the reel assy is ok. Most likely the reel sensor is defective and must be replaced by a tech. A reel failure will result from the reel table not turning in a specified amount of time, so a motor not running, bad connections @ the main board or a defective tape can produce the same failure.

Record 8 seconds and stop, same problem when playback, rew or FF.


There is a reel sensor - the spindle of the cassette- fitted beneath with is normally an opto-coupler or a magnetic sensor. when the reel moves it produces pulses that is needed to keep the processor asking the motor to work. A failure of the reel will stop the motor as no pulse is generated.
You need good experience to remove open and check to confirm.

My jvc camcorder model GR D23Ek displayed remove cassette -error 03


Hello :

Error 03 is very common in the Mini-DV models. This problem can be defective reel tables, or it can also be a defective rotary encoder. You can expect to pay intermediate to major labor for this type of repair. Parts are nominal.

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE .

good luck .

Problem with reel, could be your cassette causes the problem.In case your cassette stuck, eject the cassette by applying power on it and keep cassette door open for 5 sec or more until cassette ejected, then use other cassette. Otherwise have it check by the expert. Good Luck

GR-DVL320 keep getting E03 error indication. Ejecting and reinsertion of the tape does not seem to be fixing the problem, also says unit in safeguard mode. What do I do to remedy this?


1. The idler gear does not engage with the reel disk well.
2. Though the idler gear and reel disk are engaged with
each other, the tape is not wound because of overload
to the mechanism.
3. No FG pulse is output from the reel sensor.
4. No power is supplied to the reel sensor.
5. Tape transport operation takes place with a cassette
having no tape inside.
6. The tape slackens and no pulse is produced until the
slack is taken up and the tape comes into the normal

Have a jvc camcorder turn on and it says safe mode remove battery


Forget the battery, the mini dv carrage assy can get out of sync and initiate the safe mode, if you noticed a problem loading the tape or have heard a gear skip sound thats the problem. The best you can do with those camcorders is keep the tape in the camcorder!!!!! That will prevent the problem and insure many good years of recording.

Sorry,

Tim.

Need a real trouble shooter


the take up reels on these are weak. I take them apart and stretch the spring. the left side of the cassette housing can become bent down fairly easy. you should be able to gently bent it back up. the reel table is on the right side looking down into the mechanism, may also need cleaning.
