Have JVC GR-AX17 camera. Has been shut off for years. Powered up w/ DC pwr supply (not battery) and although I can hear something "running," all I get in the eyepiece is a diagonally scrolling display of "clock" "battery" and "999." Any help?

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

I have a JVC mini DV digital Video camera model No. GR-D295U that was lost for almost 5 years and we found it. The camera had a tape inside and we can see it but the sound like jumps, is anyway that I can...


The battery is very likely BAD (has high internal resistance)! Can you take the battery OUT, and run with ONLY the charge cable attached? Does that make any difference in performance?

WILL NOT OPERATE ON BATTERY, BATTERY TESTED GOOD


Please try the following things :
1. check the battery contacts for dirt or rust and these are contacts both on the battery and on the camera. clean with solvent or file to remove the dirt or rust.
2.check that you have removed the charger DC cord from the camera before using the battery.This has happened in a few cases.
3. get some solvent e.g ethanol, spirit etc and drop it into the hole where the DC cable from the charger enters the camera. plug the DC cable into the hole in and out rapidly and several times to clean the contacts.
If the above measures fail, take it to the repairman.

Defective mechanism, 06 error states that a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera.

How to find replacement adapter for GR-D70AS


Order the original adapter from JVC. The adapter supplies the correct current requirements to operate the battery charge circuit. JVC's web site is JVC.COM. The correct charger will provide up to 1.5 amperes of current for the charge circuit at approx. 11 volts DC. Good Luck Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectronics.org)
