Question about JVC Televison & Video

2 Answers

I bought a 20gb hdd camcorder on eBay. It powers on and I can run through the menu, but I nothing is coming through the lens. On the lcd are nine black squares that would show the scenes if there were any on the hard drive. When I try to record (MPG) is entered above the squares, but nothing is ever recorded. Solutions? I've pushed the reset button and nothing happens. I've removed the battery and put it back on and I get a communicating message, but then I immediately am taken back to the nine screens.

    I have already looked over the manual and the troubleshooting information. If it was that simple I wouldn't have had to ask. The lens is not covered and the LCD brightness has nothing to do with the solution since I already explained that what I see on the screen is nine black squares.

    You write "Press / to select [YES], then press 49 to recover the video management file." I have no idea what you are talking about. Where do I find the / and select [YES] to get to 49?

    Anytime I touch the button on the left side of the LCD all I get is a message stating "No Video Files Stored!" this comes up over the nine squares for a few seconds and then goes away.

Download the user guide from this website and go to the troubleshooting section.
If you try to playback, connect the camera to the TV and see if you get any video.
Also check and make sure the lens is not covered and the LCD brightness is adjusted as well.

    Have you tried this?

    The video management file is broken. Recovery is

    required to record or play back video files. Press / to

    select [YES], then press 49 to recover the video

    management file. If the desired video file is not displayed

    on the video index screen in spite of the file recovery, the

    file has been moved to the [EXTMOV] folder. Press the

    REC/SNAP
    button on the index screen to display [MPG],

    and then select the desired file.

    Press the "reverse skip" and "forward skip" button found on the left side of the LCD screen.

I see black when trying to record anything whether it be out of the viewfinder or the lcd screen. I have tried to adjust the brightness and everthing else that I can think of. It records my voice but no...


If you still have access to the menu options on your LCD then the
problem is probably your Lens iris. Somtimes fixed with a light tap on the side of your camcorder. Gentle tap please. May require lens replacement.

JVC everio 20gb HDD will only show a blank white screen when turned on. Do I need to reload the firmware, or is this beyond?


Sounds like a bad lcd panel. Does the camera show a picture when connected to the tv? If it has a picture on the tv and not on the camera itself its definitely gonna be in the lcd panel or lcd panel cable area, and yes it can be fixed and worth it. I hope this helps

I have the Everio 30BG and have downloaded all the files onto my computer, however there is a message showing 'insufficient space' when I try to record, and yet there are not files. HELP>


Are you saving to the micro SD card or to the HDD? You need to go into your menu options to ensure that you are saving to the HDD automatically. Sometimes I used to save to the SD for pics and the HDD for video (set up in the menu). Maybe you are deleting the HDD files but automatically recording to the full SD card?! Check

JVC GR-X5e camcorder, lens cap message. Does not show a picture.


It shows all menus, numbers and graphics on LCD, but seems like there's no picture coming through the lens. In both modes, video and still. It seems like it can not see anything as if the lens cap was on all the time.

Could this be a problem with sensor.. CCDs? Lens? Something else?

JVC HDD Camcorder won't record or playback


Depending on what model number it is? My JVC had a snap shot feature to it as well as video. Make sure that this is not an option for your camera. There could be a possibility that you did record but you have it in this camera setting, it could be taking snapshots of what you recorded.

Regarding on battery .


Along with supplying power many camcorder batteries exchange data with the camcorder. If this data is not read by the camcorder it will power up but give you a power error message.
Quite often the problem is caused by a foreign material on the contacts. Try cleaning the contacts on the battery and the camcorder with alcohol and a Q tip.
Another possibility is you have a defective new battery.
