Question about JVC BR-DV3000U DV/Mini DV VCR

1 Answer

Won't properly accept tapes/ tape won't fully insert

I have a JVC BR-DV3000 deck that's been working fine for 3 years, but for the last few weeks it's been developing an intermittent problem that's now constant.  I put a tape in (blank or not) and it takes it in & closes the little front flapper door but it's as if the tape doesn't get fully seated into the mechanism.  The TC readout is just "-------------" and the only way to eject the tape is to pull the deck from the power source and plug it back in while holding down the eject button.  Also, now when it does eject the tape, the tape comes out slightly crooked.
What can I do?

Probably a bent cassette housing in the deck - time to seek out jvc authorized repair.

Red light blinking won't accept tape


If a tape "hung" up and it won't accept one you have a loading issue.

The unit may use a belt to drive the tray or a geared mechanism.

In any case someone needs to open the unit up to "see" what is happening. Most of these a tape can be inserted with power off and manually cycled into the unit to see the issue---we usually use a old cassette with the tape inside removed to avoid issues.

If you cannot do that consider looking for a shop who will (some no longer work on this type of equipment.)

VHS Tape won't stay in compartment


Going to have to look inside but expect to find that tape is not going all the way into position and having the tape pulled out and up against the drum with the video heads.

If it does not fully load a transport problem exists--drive idler and or belts.

Faintly possible also is something that does not belong inside got in past the door and is jamming it up.

Need to record from turntables to cassette deck.


Bypass the reciever. Just mixer to tape deck. You will get a better recording anyways!

With MiniDV tapes, the DVCam indicator ignites and the reading becomes jerked.


It could be several things causing your problem. The video head may be worn, the tape guides may be out of alignment or you may have a mechanism problem keeping the tape from wrapping securely around the rotating drum. If you can use an oscilloscope, you should check the RF signal coming off the drum test point to see if it is clean, or if half the signal is missing (bad drum or video head) or not smooth (guides out of adjustment).

JVC BR-DV3000 Mini DV-DVCAM issue


If the problem only shows with Mini DV tapes, it can be a tape guide issue or a mchanism loading problem where the tape is not being properly "seated" into the tape mechanism. You will need to use an oscilloscope to look at the RF waveform coming off the tape to try and figure out where your problem is.

MiniDV tape stuck inside


sounds like a defective cassette housing, but i have seen problems with jvc decks and camera when tdk or maxell tapes were used. the lids on these tapes seem to get stuck in the cassette housings in jvc equipment. jvc even recommends that tdk and maxell tapes be avoided.

Neither deck will open to insert tapes in my dual deck vcr


It seems they didnt refirbish it, you should return it..

If for some reason you cant return it.

The problem is your carriage unit is damaged
The carriage unit is the parts that load the tape into the vcr
If you think you are able you can open it up and look if any springs have fallen out. If not then change the unit.

If you cant fix it your self a technician can easily do it for you since it isnt that hard and somplicated to repair, you just need good retainence

Tapes not in 24p play for 2 seconds than stop, WHY?


The BR-DV3000 DV deck has LP inhibit function which is set in the operations menu. JVC does not recommend the use of LP mode and therefore locks this mode out by default. You can change this setting to allow operation in LP mode if you like but I don't recommend it. Using LP mode on DV tape causes the error rate to escalate due to the narrower track width produced by the slow moving tape. Good Luck, this is a nice machine!
