Question about JVC Digital 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.

I'm getting a message 'HDD Error' while trying to operate the camcorder (JVC, Model GZ-MG70AG).. It's not necessary to recover the data. If only the camcorder works that's fine..


Most likely your hard drive needs to be formatted or, worst, replaced. An authorized service could do that. http://www.JVC.com has a list of authorized services in the support section.

Well the first thing I would do is recommend you send your unit in for service as you may end up doing more harm then good. You can call and get free estimates on what this may cost. If you need any further assistance or help locating a service center let me know.

Hi,
GZ-MG330 is new series of camcorder with 30GB HDD
Regarding battery, BN-VF808U, if its slim and supplied with camcorder then its OK and other longer life battery must be double then slim battery and of course, model number would be changed.

Hope this info will help you to buy extra longer life battery.

Will my ac adapter chardge my camera? I have the Olympus c-50 (zoom)


No. You do have the battery charger, right? If not, get one
FYI
When connecting the AC adapter to the camera’s DC-IN jack, be careful not to
catch the plug on the jack’s cover.
● If the battery power runs out while the camera is connected to a computer,
image data may be corrupted. It is recommended that you use the optional AC
adapter when transferring images to a computer. Do not disconnect or connect
the AC adapter while the camera is communicating with the computer. Or just make sure your battery is fully charged!
● Power is consumed continuously during the conditions described below.
This could reduce the number of pictures that can be taken.
•When the monitor is turned on.
•Repeated auto-focus by pressing the shutter button halfway.
•Repeated power zoom adjustments.
•When communicating with a computer.
● Do not remove or load the battery and/or do not disconnect or connect the
AC adapter while the camera is turned on. Doing so could damage the camera’s settings or functions.

What does the fEE error message displayed on an SLR camera mean?


The "fEE" error indicates that the camera is not communicating with the lens. The lens may not be attached to the camera properly, or if it has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number of the lens) - which is normally marked in orange. Select this aperture and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this from occuring again. The fEE error message Set to f22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch.
