I video remote control planes and I am finding that the video is blurry. I have altered a few things but it still seems to be bad quality when I play back. I took auto focus off but that just made it...


Well you may be on digital zoom mode, this simply will not be clear with fast moving takes, keep to the Opt zoom mode and with on tripod this will put focus better, keep camera still, move and it will blur.

Every picture i take is not a good quality either it's blurry or the color is horrible - kind of yellowish - what kind of adjustment do i have to make


Well the blurry is caused by poor focus. Try not to zoom too much. Better to get closer to the subject if possible. Study your manual and adjust your diopter which loosely means adjust the viewfinder in and out whilst looking at a subject without using any zoom until the picture is clear. Then take you'll find it easier to focus when you do actually zoom. Sometimes there's a small sliding piece of plastic sticking out of the side of the lens. Otherwise it's a matter of turning the eyepiece to get the clarity. That's why I said check the manual. That will explain which method to use.

The yellowish colour is unusual. I would say check you have the White balance switch set to auto but lack of white balance is not usually a yellow picture. But check the white balance switch anyway and make sure it's in auto mode.

Ordinary light bulbs or some street lighting can give a yellow caste so check you have the inside outside button switched to the correct position, depending on where you are at the time of shooting.

Did you buy the camera used or new. Often people who have faulty cameras will sell them off cheap and run. Leaving the owner with the problems.

So to sum up. get closer to your subject rather than use zoom if you can. If you use a lot of zoom either use a tripod or place the camera on a firm surface or even hold the camera whilst you stop yourself from moving by leaning against a wall or tree etc.

Next remeber where you are and switch the indoor/outdoor switch accordingly

JVC Digital Camera focus


Did it work before? If so then it sounds like the focus motor/screw jack has failed and needs replacing. With some JVCs you can replace the whole lens system and a new one will re-calibrate itself, but I'd have to check on this model.

Zoom position keeps shifting


in low light situation focus shift. In some recent camcorder you can ''manually ajust the focus'' by entering in the menu and navigating. You could also light up the place like everybody does in the video and film industry. I mean light up, buy a two head 2x500Watts construction light on tripod. Put one on your subject and one on the ceiling to reflect the light and kills the shadow and produces sharp line on hairs ... Basic video lighting ... Look for the right keyword in google and open to a whole new world of quality ....

Recording very snowy and blurred.


If recordings are only blurry and snowy on playback on camcorder, but are OK on a different camcorder or on computer, then the problem is a dirty magnetic head. Use a mini-dv head cleaner tape. If recordings are blurred even on pc or on a different camera, then there is a fault. Faulty CCD sensor, faulty digital board, problem with internal ribbon connector, and dirty or defective lens assembly can cause this kind of problem.

Lens failing to function properly


Yes, this is a strange issue. Have you dropped the unit, or maybe 'bumped' it or anything similar. I know alot of times, people like to 'hit' their unit, to get it to do things (like eject tape). What people don't realize, is that these machines are prone to damage when hit hard enough (just like anything else).

In any event, this is not an misconfiguration issue, and you won't be able to fix it. You would need to bring it in to a qualified service center for an estimate. Be sure to shop around to find the best price and service. Since parts for these are not cheap, and they are labor intensive.

Good luck.

Hope this helps some.

Lens failing to function properly


Possibility is two. 1. If the lens contact to the body is not good so make sure the contacts are clean and position is locked completely. 2. 90% of the solution comes from repair on Main circuit in the lens. Good Luck. For further assistance go to www.camerarepairjapan.com James.

JVC camcorder with blurred images


It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment: 1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. 2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you. 3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused. Hope this helps. NewMediaMan
