JVC GR-366EK Zoom snapshots instead

Hi I have a problem with my 14 month old camcorder when I use the zoom slider on the top it starts taking snapshots instead, the snap shot button works as it should but I'm now unable to zoom in or out.
Resetting the camera works for a few minutes then the problem returns.
I've had a look for firmware updates but theres nothing listed on the JVC website.

JVC GR-DF470AA continually zooms in automatically even when not pressing zoom. Its like the zoom button is stuck on zoom. To stop the zoom I have to press the zoom out.


This sounds like a physical problem with the switch, but you will have to disassemble it to see what's going on. There are videos on utube that demonstrate the process, if you elect to try that. If you elect to have it serviced, get an estimate first, as they can be fairly expensive to fix. Wish I had better news.

being a fact that JVC camcorders are very trouble prone, it would probably be a better ideal & cheaper to buy a new camcorder.
for your next camcorder purchase, i would stay away from anything made by JVC.

Zoom problem


Sreejith, I am sorry to hear that you're having this problem with your JVC, it is really a good camera. A possible problem in your camera is the harness that connects the lens can come loose and the camera looses its feedback from the lens position sensor. The lens does not know what position it's in so it defaults to its startup position. I would refer the service to a qualified service tech, there are many items that can be damaged in this camera if it is disassembled incorrectly. Good luck my friend.

Blur in viewfinder


Hi, i had the same problem and was suggested i visited the JVC website, this could be the manufacturers error reported on their web site. Failure of the CCD image sensor. Check JVC UK web site, support centre, if your camcorder has the problems listed, until 01/10/07 they will cover repairs. Mine now works ok. Hope this helps
