Question about JVC Everio GZ-MG130 Camcorder

1 Answer

My JVC Everio GZ-MG130 does not turn on, and the charge light won't come on either if plugged in. I checked the voltage of the adapter and it is good (11v DC)

    But for example, if this were the case that the jack is broken internally, why does the camcorder not start with a full charged battery? I also have an external battery charger, with brand new battery full y charged, when I insert the battery in the camcorder, there is still no sign of life. It did this before.

Two possibilities for said symptoms, either DC jack got broken and does not provide volts to camcorder coming from adapter (11V) or any chip fuse is blown at main board for some reason inside camera.
Local camera repair shop will help you to get camera fixed because camera will take apart that needs expertise.
If you want to attempt by yourself, get service manual copy from internet to have proper disassemble procedure to avoid any damage.
Hope these info will help you.

    DC jack has internal switch that disconnect battery volts when gets adapter volts in.
    And second reason could be blown fuse on main board as power supply section in on same board.

    OK, sending copy, wait my email

  • dimitri588 Aug 21, 2010

    Thank. I will. Once I got it, I will accept your solution. I will open camera and check that DC jack. The fuse you are talking about, would that be a glass tube fuse? Or something different? I have a soldering gun if needed. And multimeter

    I sent you service manual copy, check yu email box.
    Camcorder does not have glass fuse as it found in tv etc, in fact fuse is called chip fuse and size would be this [ = ] almost equal to that equal-sign

    I am also having a similar problem however, my DC jack is getting the 11v at the plug. I tried to plug it in to the camera several times and the green light will flash 10 times and stop. The camera will still not turn on after I tried this. I don't think it is the plug adapter. Any suggestions?
    Thank you,

I'm trying to find a charging cable for my JVC camcorder model # GZ-E300WU.

Check the specs in the manual to determine the voltage/polarity (may also be next to the plug input on the camera) is the same and you may be able to use a generic adapter like those you'll find on Amazon for JVC GZ camcorders like this:

JVC Everio GZ-MG130 Won't Come On

Check the lens cap.

Check if it is in the proper mode. Some JVC have an eyepiece that when pulled out allows you to view through the eyepiece but not on the screen.

Try downloading the contents of the hard drive to your computer.

Here are links that can give you details on how to check these things.
