Question about JVC GR-DV1 Camcorder
I have a JVC DV1 since new (15 yrs) a long time back a problem began with the recording screen picture sliding out of frame to the right, and back in from the left, rolling slowly and continuously. I sent it under warrantee and JVC fixed it, but after a few months it ocurred again. I put it away in for several years. I assume the problem is a faulty chip somewhere. The quality of the video capture was always very high. JVC (Australia) took a long time before and still didn't get it right. Is it worth fixing again, or should I just throw it out?
For equipment of that age, fixing it would cost more than replacing it.

It sounds like you have a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. The circuit needs to be checked out by a technician. Stargazer

Definitely, don't use Sony miniDV tapes! The fault occured because of rough handling of the mechanism during cassete insert or from dropping the camera.A guide arm inside the mechanism is deformed and the mechanism can be changed in whole for this.Contact a JVC authorized centre.The price for this can be half the price of a new camera. After all, it's your fault. This is a good camera if you know haw to handle/ use it!!!

I cant find a solution but causes may be :
1. Did you remove the LENSE CAP ?
2. PRobably there is a small switch that tells the camera that LENSE CAP is on or something dunno
About that recording problem
1. LCD Broken?
2. Other technical issues ...
Im not proffesional or anything :P Wish you luck with better people at this D: .

Hi tlaufer ,
According to the symptom this problem is related to the VIDEO HEAD, As you earlier try to clean the head but no results, Please open the cassette compartment of your camera (as when you insert the cassette in it) for 30 mins (remains open cassette compartment) Actueally some time due to moisture head get durt.
After 30 mins insert the cassette and play it. Hope it will start work again fine.
But if no result from the said procedure then there must be a damadge of point of the head, in this condition you have to replace the VIDEO HEAD assembly.
Thanks for using fixya.

after 4 or 5 yrs (depending on usuage ) in some TVs on mainboard & CRT tube's circuit board at some soldering joints cracks develops ... then due to loose contact TV behaves as you have described ........ when you are hitting that lightly on its side then these cracks at soldering joints are getting connected temporarly & for few seconds or minutes you are getting normal picture ....... so solution is most of the soldering joints on mainboard & on CRT circuit board has to be resoldered ....... only good tv service engineer can do this without shorting joints or damaging components..... so in your place contact few TV service engineers & ask them how much they will charge for resoldering joints on mainboard & crt tube's circuit board ......
