I bought a new JVC EvrioGZ-MG130AS handycam. When i tried to do indoor shooting in auto mode the quality is not good and getting poor contrast pictures. On manual mode, therquality is good under same background, the result is broken pics when objects move. Image is good under auto mode when the background is brightly lit. Can somebody give a solution to this?

Well the blurry is caused by poor focus. Try not to zoom too much. Better to get closer to the subject if possible. Study your manual and adjust your diopter which loosely means adjust the viewfinder in and out whilst looking at a subject without using any zoom until the picture is clear. Then take you'll find it easier to focus when you do actually zoom. Sometimes there's a small sliding piece of plastic sticking out of the side of the lens. Otherwise it's a matter of turning the eyepiece to get the clarity. That's why I said check the manual. That will explain which method to use.
The yellowish colour is unusual. I would say check you have the White balance switch set to auto but lack of white balance is not usually a yellow picture. But check the white balance switch anyway and make sure it's in auto mode.
Ordinary light bulbs or some street lighting can give a yellow caste so check you have the inside outside button switched to the correct position, depending on where you are at the time of shooting.
Did you buy the camera used or new. Often people who have faulty cameras will sell them off cheap and run. Leaving the owner with the problems.
So to sum up. get closer to your subject rather than use zoom if you can. If you use a lot of zoom either use a tripod or place the camera on a firm surface or even hold the camera whilst you stop yourself from moving by leaning against a wall or tree etc.
Next remeber where you are and switch the indoor/outdoor switch accordingly
So, what did you use firewire or USB? If you want to use SUB you will have to install proper driver, by the way, I wouldn't even try USB, quality is horrible. Best way to capture video is firewire (IEEE1394). You will not need to install any drivers for firewire connection if your PC equipped with firewire card.
Try going into "reset" master mode. otherwise you need to make sure your camera is shooting on the right setting for the light you are using. For example, when shooting in daylight with interior light setting (approx. 3200k) your photos will look off color and yellow or pink because sunlight is 5600k approx.,. . . contrary while shooting indoors with incandescant lighting if the camera is set for sunlight exposure (5600k) the picture will look blue. Make sure you read the manual on how to white balace, but first take the camera out of AutoExposure settings to do all the settings manually. Auto focus and auto exposure are for rookies and these types of errors will happen. Always try to do manual iris and manual focus for best results zoom in and get your focus on the subjects eyes then zoom out and frame up your shot.
DUDE.if u r shooting in Manual Mode ( the Pointer on the right side goes to top most , to the [M] u will be having that problem. To make it right first focus in Auto mode. [A] then chane to manual mode. hope this could help....
I had the same problem and found this forum. In Camera mode, I went to the night/program light button and somehow entered a circular menu shown on the screen ... chose sports shots - and boom! back on to focused pictures. Hallelujah.
