Question about JVC GR-D90U Camcorder

1 Answer

JVC GR-D90U digital video camera will not power on with Battery or when plugged in directly. Power cable tests out good (11vdc), battery apears to be 0V and won't charge when plugged in. If i put a multimeter across the battery charge terminals it reads 0vdc but not sure if i am testing that correctly.

    Yes, I got the same issue with jvc grd90u camcorder no power anywhere

    and the tape is stuck. Checked the web in google and found cnet bulletiboard someone mention the fuse on main board might have blown. There's suppose to be diagrams and how to change the fuse.

    Unfortunately, This is a posting in 05' and posting has been locked.

    Will try this weekend to take apart the unit and see where the fuse might have blown. Once I have solution will post to the board. Also, I will try to call the JVC company support for help tomorrow.

I can't figure out how to download video from my JVC GR-D90U Camcorder to my computer through it's usb cable. It is a mini DV camcorder that uses mini video tapes.

From the JVC manual "This camcorder can transfer still images to a PC via USB". There is no mention of video transfer via USB so it seems it is not supported.

I need to replace the power adapter for my JVC GR-D90U camcorder. Where can I order a replacement?

From page 5 of the user manual, I see that the part numbers for the power supplies that work with this camera are AP-V11U or AP-V13U.
Searching Google, I find it available from JVC for $36.23
I saw that these power supplies have been selling for less elsewhere on the Internet. Just Google search either model number above to see the best deals.

How to transfer the recorded mini dv tapes from my GR-D90U to my computer

Connect your cam into your PC either by USB or firewire(DV). Install the application software included. You may edit or burn it right away. There are better editing software available int he market today, like WinDVD Creator or Cyberlink Power Director and many more. By the way, to install driver connect your cam first and follow the prompt. Good Luck
