VIDEO CAMERA JVC DR-DV1U THE PLACE WHERE THE BATTERY GOES IN HAS A SLIDING LID/COVER. THAT COVER CAME OFF. IN THE PROCESS A THIN ELECTRICAL STRIP PULLED OUT AT THE CAMERA. I WAS ABLE TO PUT THE THE LID/COVER BACK ON. THE THIN ELECTRICAL STRIP IS 4 WIRE WITH A SLID IN CONNECTOR. IT HAS FOUR LEADS. I THINK IT IS THE CONNECTOR FOR THE AC ADAPTER (6V). I BELIEVE I FOUND THE SLOT IT WENT INTO BECAUSE ALL OF THE FUNCTIONS WORK VIA ADAPTER LESS BATTERY. I JUST NEED CONFIRMATION THAT I FIXED THE PROBLEM. I BELIEVE I NEED TO GLUE DOWN THE ELECTRICAL STRIP AND I AM THINKING OF USING A RUBBER GLUE. DO YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS.

Open the battery cover by sliding the latch toward the center of the camera and flipping the lid up. Holding the other side of the camera, lightly slam the end with the open battery compartment against the cupped palm of your other hand and the battery should slide out a little. Grasp the battery and pull it out the rest of the way.
If your camcorder is still under warranty, send it before it's to late.
There is some kind of wide spread problem with the CCD Assembly on this
line of JVC products. In particular with the GR-DxxU line.
what I have read in the internet, the CCD Assembly is a Sony part and
can be purchased for about $50. If you are handy with electronics, you
could give it a go. This repair if successful, will probably not last
for to long either.
I have the same problem with this camera and
it's a shame that JVC is not doing anything about it. I read somewhere
that there is a pending class action law suit against JVC on this line
Sony has also released a statement with one of
their camcorders, that they will fix the problem at no charge. Can't
remember the link but it's on this site.
I have a s5500 with the battery lid clips broken.. fuji says ,, nope no warranty on that part ,, what a joke,,$120 dollars labour plus parts and freight for repair... anyway ,, went to jaycar (electrical supplies etc) and found a small metal clip/ fastener that I used on an existing exterior screw below where the strap is located. i then placed another screw in the lid that allows the remainding hole in the fastener to slip over, works like a charm. took me around 3 minutes to do and does not affect the grip on the camera and still alllows it to be easily opened and closed. I am most pleased i now have my camera back.
