Question about JVC GR-D230 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, I see these things from time to time in my shop, usually it is either the tape take-up motor, (Drive or assembly) or the Mode switch that has faulted., or even both? This is not a big repair, however it will cost most likely over $150.00, plus parts to repair.
You need to take this into an authorised JVC repair center, and ask for a 'Quote" for the repair. This way you can get an idea of the costings and see if it is indeed worth repairing.

Tape drives are lubricated, and when the lubrication runs dry, the tape guides fail to initialize the tape correctly. The best thing to try is to have the device serviced- cleaned and lubricated, especially since it is a few years old. A camera repair shop should be able to do this for you.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
