Hi my screen says video management file is broken reset required. I pressed the button and an hour glass rotates and it says reset complete but then it keeps on doing this and will not let me record. I can view through the screen but am unable to record it simply ignores any further commands. I can take still images but no video.
Ok i had the same problem, this is what i did I hooked up my camera to my pc via usb and wenyt into the cameras harddrive itself and noticed that one floder that i would click on said that it was corrupted that floders name is EXTMOV i made a new folder on my desktop named EXTMOV and remaned the Folder on the camera EXTMOV1 then dragged the new EXTMOV folder on the camera I got the same message that the video management file needed to be fixed went through the process and now the camera works!
Here's is how I solved this issue, I used a Louisville Slugger in my backyard and destroyed this piece of Sh_t. Destroying It felt great after watching this recorder malfunction during my daughter's graduation. JVC should be ashamed of themselves with this issue. I will buy a good and reliable product next time.
Just had the same problem - couldn't access any of my footage. I went through the menu screen and scrolled down to "Clean HDD". It took a little while, but everything's working again. Am currently downloading all footage.
Gary - not an answer - but mine just started doing the same thing. It was working perfectly fine and one day I turned it on and this message pops up. I've tried everything to reset or "fix" the problem, but it just keeps giving me the same message. This is happening in the video mode and when I press the button to review videos. I'm getting on the phone with JVC today to try and figure this out...hopefully it won't result in having to send the camera anywhere. I'll report back if I get any useable advice.

Re: screen says video management file is broken
Actually the problem is which button you use when responding to the message. You must use the little joy stick on the flip out LCD screen. When it says the Video Management file is Broken... Message push in on the little joy stick and that will fix the broken file and all will be well with the world again...

Do not be that worried, in this case you still have chance to get back those video chips and you may need video recovery software to help, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photo and music files.
Tips:Take the memory card or stick out and connect to your computer via a card reader. Before your videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the JVC memory card or stick in case the original files(your videos) are overwritten.
I think what has happened is the very thin wires Sony use between the camera and screen LCD on these new cameras has broken, when it started to go wrong it was a wire making and breaking contact, now it has gone completly. Call Sony for help on 01256 828828 listen to options ok? David
If the buttons on the touch-panel LCD screen do not respond correctly or do not work at all, adjust the LCD screen calibration. Consult the instruction manual if specific information is required to perform this procedure. NOTE: The touch-panel LCD screen cannot be calibrated if it is rotated.
The hour glass symbol means you have ended a video and the camera is saving it. If it does it on it's own, it might mean you have jammed the recording button. Try tapping it a little or pulling it out a little to get it back to normal. If that doesn't work, your camera may be malfuntioning. If you can't get it to get unjammed, get a friend or family member to help you. Take an easy on it or the camera will break and you can ever use the recording button again.

you do is you press the play/record button on the left side of the
camcorder when it is open to get to the videos. then you use the laser
touch operation to scroll to the video you want to delete. then, right
under the screen there should be 5 buttons. the one to the left of the
menu button has a picture of a garbage can looking thing above it. just
press that and then press yes when it asks you if your sure.
Apparently the firmware on the camera is very finicky especially if you do any deleting/renaming of movie files via windows and the USB (rather than using the camera's menu interface). My suggestion (worked for me anyway) connect via USB, explore the JVC HD, find your videos, save them on to your computer (drag and drop, or edit copy, etc) then once you've accomplished that, go into the camera's menu, then settings, find the option to FORMAT HD, do it.
This fixed my dilemma, hope it helps others out there.
Although the instructions don’t make it clear, it seems to be important that the camera is turned off before you connect or disconnect the USB cable. The instructions do mention that you should not delete or rename files on the camera except in the EXT_MOV folder. The camera’s firmware is apparently quite fragile about file names and the presence of the extra hidden folders that both the Windows and Macintosh operating systems create when you delete something.
