Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
before i throw this camera in the bin, i wonder if it can be fixed. had it for years, but about 3 years ago, it just wouldn't turn on at all. its as if there is no power whatsoever.
i have 2 batteries, both of which i have charged, but the camera is just dead.
is there a fix?
if so any idea's how to get in it for a look, i tried undoing all the screws i could find, but it still wouldn't come apart.
They are designed to be curious adult proof, hand it to your local 5 year old and it will be apart in no time =)
There are a few screws that tend to blend in on these, plus most of the case is held together with internal clips that will pop apart when enough pressure is applied.
Ok, now onto your power problem. There will most likely be a fuse (it won't look anything like any fuse you have seen before) near where the battery pack connects to the circuit board. It will probably be white in colour and only 1 or 2 mm long. It will look like most of the other components on the board but will have a marking nearby starting with "F" like F101 or something along those lines. The "F" is obviously for fuse.
Check any of those you see with a multimeter for continuity since there will be no physical damage to it.
Hope that helps =)
