Question about JVC GR-D290 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

JVC Digital Video Camera - model GR-D290

I've used this DVC for two years, and last month in our Costa Rica vacation
the camera went into a "stuck" mode: on the pop-out LCD monitor the phrase "unit in safeguard mode" keeps coming up, even after ejecting and
re-inserting the tape, and I have been sure to have the tape's rec/save flap
on record. The monitor also shows "03" as the trouble mode it is in...

Tech persons at Circuit City and Best Buy have looked at it, but no luck.
Can you help?

In the case no REEL FG is produced for 4 sec-onds
or more in the capstan rotation mode af-ter
loading was complete, the mechanism mode
is shifted to STOP with the pinch roller set off.
This error is defined as [E03].
However, no REEL EMG is detected in the
SLOW/STILL mode.
1. The idler gear does not engage with the reel disk well.
2. Though the idler gear and reel disk are engaged with
each other, the tape is not wound because of over-load
to the mechanism.
3. No FG pulse is output from the reel sensor.
4. No power is supplied to the reel sensor.
5. Tape transport operation takes place with a cassette
having no tape inside.
6. The tape slackens and no pulse is produced until the
slack is taken up and the tape comes into the normal
status.

I think youre talking about safeguard mode.

Here is the manual if you don't have one:

See page 51. There should be an error indication number as well.

Software


http://www.wm.edu/LRC/LYT1354-001A.pdf Go to this site for your manual. Look up video editing in the menu. You need a firewire connection to get digital video (DV) out and into a computer. If you are using XP with service pack 2 upgrade, you need to go to microsoft support and download 885222, a fix for the fact that SP2 screwed up camcorder recognition on firewire. and if that doesn't work, you can download 322756 and read how to install a registry fix manually. And if that doesn't work, I would forget about video editing and take up surfboarding Dr. dixie

Video down load


if you are using a desktop, you require a an addon card called IEEE 1394 firewire card, which you have to install it on your motherboard's PCI slot, then using the firewire cable which you get along with the card should be connected to the card and DV port of the camera, then using the MOVIE MAKER software of windows XP, you can download the video.
