The camera will record as if everything is working fine, but when i go to play back what i've recorded the camera screen stays blue and its not because the videos aren't rewound.


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I cant get video from my jvcGR-D31EK to my tv using AV cables. Can you help me please?


check to make sure that you are using the correct cable. Unless you have connections for separate left and right audio, the cable that you should be using will likely be a 1/8" plug that has *4* sections on it, a stereo patch cable will have *3*, and may also be shorting one of the contacts.

Unit in safeguard mode


I found the solution on another web site. You just eject the tape, and then give the camera a few sound whacks near the microphone (I tapped mine of a carpetted floor). Believe it or not this seems to work! My camera had been in "safe mode" for over a year without any success in fixing it. I tried the above method having lost all hope of ever using it again, and presto, the think came back to life! Can't say how long it will last, but at least it's out of safe mode;-)

Please wait -Condensation operation Paused


If the camera becomes damp or cold and brought into a warm atmosphere damp forms in the mechanism which would cause the tape to stick and become damaged or fouled.

leave the camera to warm up for a few hours and the fault should clear.

If not the most common reason is the dew sensor has failed and needs replacing
