Question about JVC GR-D230 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

I have a JVC tape camcorder model GR-D230U that I have had for several years. I was ejected a finished tape, ready to put a new one in. When i put the tape in I could close the tape compartment and it started to pull the tape inside then camera when it suddenly stopped. You can hear the camera trying to get the tape inside however it will not go in all the way. After a few seconds it just ejects the tape back out. Help Thanks, Terry

    There Isn't any way I can do the cleaning and lubrication myself? I just spent 15.00 that I could have used towards the cleaning/lubrication.

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.

I have had the same problem...usually had success by taking off the battery, putting it back on, turning the power off and on, etc.  It has always gone back in eventually.  I also tried re-charging the battery and replacing.  Could this be an old battery problem?  Mine is 4.5 years old.

Unfortunately this is a repair issue. There are several failures that can occur, none of which will be resolved without service, that create this safeguard situation. Often the fpc cable which carries sensor information to the micro has been injured and that requires repair. Good luck, magic seadog
