    how to fix

  • Frankie-babe Sep 29, 2008

    Our condensation light is flashing, but the tape cannot be put into machine as the door will not stay closed. If the battery is on it powers up itself and just sits and rattles for a few seconds and then stops. What cover do you mean to take off and clean condensation sensor. How do you know which one you need to clean? Thanks

Flip Ultra - freezes at initial Flip screen - will not shut off

I found a fix that worked for mine.
It was doing the same thing, freezing at the "Flip" screen and would not turn off. I did the remove the batteries deal. It worked once but issue reoccured 2 months later and the battery fix didn't fix it.
What did fix it was...
With the camera off, hold down the Right Arrow button and the trash can button at the same time and turn the camera on.
A few seconds later, I was at the start recording screen!!

Good Luck!

Black screen

ccd malfunction!


The screen is black and sometimes horz lines appear scrambled ?

This would be it.

The cost to fix by SONY is 175 - 200. They stopped fixing for free until Oct 2007.

I pulled off the fix by myself. Cost = 49$
Whats needed to Purchase: CD489 ( CCD main board ), ICX101 ( CCD IC )
Required: Surface mount soldering skills, Patience, and disassembly skills.
With this you can fix it like I did !

No Prob...I had the same problem with my GR-D72U. There is a defect in the CCD image sensor. JVC will fix it for FREE! All it will cost you is shipping it to them. Go to , download the rapair request... Send it off to your nearest service center and they ship it back all fixed up in less than a week. I must tell you though, you ONLY have until Dec. 31 2008 to do this. Not only did they fix mine, they cleaned the heads but also buffed out a scratch. After you get yours fixed, post as many helps as you can to others.
