Question about JVC GR-DVX9 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Could anyone advise on how to overcome this problem on my jvc GR-DVX9. Once turned on and put into camera mode the camera starts to zoom up to it's maximum without either the zoom slide being touched or the start/stop button being activated. If you then start the camera the zoom can be used as normal. If you remove your finger from the zoom button it will continue to zoom up tp it's max setting.

You have a bad zoom unit/zoom controller. It is common on these units.

SOURCE: JVC GR-DF470AA continually zooms in automatically

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.

Connect JVC GR-D240ek to vista laptop


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A firewire to USB will not work. It has to be firewire to firewire. A JVC GR-D240ek uses 4-pin, IEEE 1394 compliant Digital Video Connector [DV OUT] to connect a 1394 cable (also known as a FireWire or i.Link cable) to a laptop equipped with an equivalent IEEE 1394 port. Please note that some laptops firewire port could either be 4 pins or 6 pins.

Soon as that connection as shown above is established, you can use Windows Import Video to capture / download the videos.

Other notes (from the same Windows Help link above) :
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Movie Maker. After you connect ... your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Movie Maker, turn on your DV camera, put it into playback mode, and Windows Import Video should open automatically.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Photo Gallery. After you connect ...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from Camera or Scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
  • You can also open Windows Import Video by using Windows Live Photo Gallery. (This options requires you to install Windows Live on your computer.) After you connect your...your DV camera, and your computer, start Windows Live Photo Gallery, turn on your DV camera, and put it into playback mode. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, click File, click Import from a camera or scanner, click your DV camera in the list of devices, click Import, and then follow the instructions.
Verify that the laptop's firewire port is 100% up to specs and totally compliant to IEEE 1394.

God luck and thank you for using FixYa.

SIR/MAM. WHEN EVER I USE MY CAMCORDER GR-DVX9


There is often a small battery inside the unit or accessed from outside that holds the memory that the device was last set. Yours is defaulting to maximum zoom. And in fact it does.

Built-in Clock's Rechargeable Lithium Battery
To store the date/time in memory, the clock's rechargeable
lithium battery is integrated in the camcorder. While the
camcorder is connected to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger, or while the battery pack attached
to the camcorder continues to supply power, the clock's
rechargeable lithium battery is always charged. However,
if the camcorder is not used for approx. 3 months, the
clock's lithium battery will become discharged and the
date/time stored in memory will be lost. When this occurs,
first connect the camcorder to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger for over 24 hours to charge the
clock's rechargeable lithium battery. Then perform the
date/time setting before using the camcorder.
Note that the camcorder can be used without setting the
date/time.

Your manual in English. You can use a smartphone with Google translate and the camera feature to read what is shown on the camera in Japanese and change the operating language to English.

The mechanism is out of sync, put a tape in and hold it, it wont go in but will try to open don't let it, remove the battery and reattach, let the tape eject, rinse and repeat 3 or 4 times and it will finally accept the tape.

This worked for VHS camera once: If you know where or can find a heated de-humidifier try that (first). Or put it in an oven which has been warmed up and then turned off. Let the oven cool down to about 160F first. Take out the battery, tape and memory card. Leave it in for a couple of hours or until back to room temp. Make sure you don't forget it. Look for a re-set button inside the where the tape is inserted. Check you manual for its location. Then try it. If it works you're lucky.

Try to put the camera on default settings without using battery, that is using power adapter, do this 2 to 3 times, it will solve your problem.
