Question about JVC Digital Cameras
Just found a workaround for the "cheap battery" problem. The problem is that there is some circuitry in the more expensive JVC batteries that the generics don't have. When this isn't detected by the camcorder, it won't function. It's a neat trick to make you buy the proprietary battery. Also suspecting that with the JVC battery, if the circuitry gets fried for some reason, the battery will no longer work.
Well, the generic battery has a plug in the back of it so you can charge it with the JVC factory supplied charger. There is also a jumper cord supplied with the camcorder. Plug this in the back of your cheap battery, plug the other end into your DC port on your camera. Downsides are that you have a short cord between the battery and camcorder and the battery indicator won't work so you'll need a spare.
Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution.
