Question about JVC Cameras

2 Answers

JVC GZ-MG330HEK When connecting a data battery and switching on, camera powers up but then displays 'Communicating Error' with graphics indicating that it's a communicating error with the battery that's the problem. Have tried other batteries, all with same result, presumably meaning that the problem is in the camera. Any ideas?

Hi,

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.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate or accept the solution.

Ensure you are using alcaline batteries, check the contacts inside foe oxide or dirt.

    Here is a forum on the same problem

    Communicating Error

    If you cannot fix it by replacing the battery probably there is
    something wrong with board circuits. In this case contact the jvc
    number at the end of the user manual and ask what to do.

HOW CAN I RECOVER MY DELETED VIDEOS AFTER USING THE CAMCORDER FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS


If you have overwritten the videos, I'm afraid there is little chance. A specialised software expert may be able to recover something, but it would be extremely expensive, as it is a labour-intensive job.

I have a JVC Everio GZ-MG330HEK Hard Disk camcorder and a JVC Everio DVD Burner. My problem is that when I go to Burn a DVD a message comes on the screen saying 'the device is unplugged or the USB...


Sounds like your USB driver in your computer is corrupt try updating your USB driver by right clicking my computer, click properties, click hardware, click devise manager, scroll to Universal serial bus controllers and try updating the drivers if one has a yellow mark next to it that’s the one to go for.
You can uninstall one by one and reboot and the wizard will reload that particular driver saying new hardware found normally one of 27C8, 27C9, 27CA, 27CB, 27CC anyway try them all one after the other.
Hope this solve your problem.

My jvc gz-mg330 dont work and on the srean its said communicating error


I presume the error is in between cam CPU and the Data Battery. Check your battery contact and camera's battery terminals and clean especially the pin marked "c". This contact is the link between BATTERY and CAMERA CPU so that your cam knows how much power left in your battery. Sometimes a DC JACK failure or defective battery shows the same warning. Good Luck!

Have JVC gzmg230U camcorder. battery works fine. But will not work on the camacorder. Cam only works with AC charger.How can it work with the battery?


It hard to isolate the problem like this. But maybe we can begin with this, try to test your data battery(your battery) press and hold BATT INFO while you are charging, it must show you some percentage of power available if not check battery contact..or maybe the battery itself has problem, symptoms of defective battery is like it easily indicates full or no response at all. Lastly I want you to try with another battery you know its good. If all of these doesn't help I'm afraid that your camera needs service sometimes DC JACK makes problem after frequent connect/disconnect. Hope it helps

One of the 2 battery does not work on camcorder.


some of those batteries come with a lid on the face side of the battery where u insert a power cord in order for the camcorder to get power from the battery. (strange........ I know). the battery mounts on the camcorder but acts as as an external source of power. a cord needs to be plugged into the battery and then int the ac adapter jack in order to send power.... that is if it is anything like my camcorder.

JVC EVERIO HYBRID GZ-MG330 Battery error?


I bought a replacement data battery BN-VF-808U from Digicowfish through Amazon.com. (?made by PomerPower).
It fits nciely to my JVC Everio GZ-MG330 which uses a BN-VF808U data battery. However, JVC gives a screen message:Communicating Error.
Now I have solved my Communication Error by using a jumper cable provided with the replacement battery BN-VF808U to connect the attached replacement battery to the camcorder. There is a DC input socket on the camcorder. There is also a DC input socket on the replacement battery for direct connection.
