Question about JVC GR-DVL120 Mini DV Camcorder
This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired 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.

If camcorder accepts normal MiniDV tape without any problem and you can record or playback it correctly then please try another brand video head cleaning tape as existing head cleaning tape might be not good that is why camcorder rejects it.
Hope this will help.
