Hi,

I believe this means that there is condensation in the tape mechanism.

The cassette holder wont come up aoutomatically


what you have to do is ejecting the tape, and as soon as it starts to eject , close the door immediately, then safeguard mode should be gone, and you will be able to eject normally.

Have a jvc camcorder turn on and it says safe mode remove battery


Forget the battery, the mini dv carrage assy can get out of sync and initiate the safe mode, if you noticed a problem loading the tape or have heard a gear skip sound thats the problem. The best you can do with those camcorders is keep the tape in the camcorder!!!!! That will prevent the problem and insure many good years of recording.

Sorry,

Tim.

The cassette holder isn't closing......and the tape is not loading


Hi
See if this works--If you are on battery there may not be enough power .Charge the battery or use the the mains power through the transformer and see if it works.
Hope this helps

Jvc 700x mini dv camcorder


you need to take the covers off to reveal the chassis there is a part in the corner that is taller then the rest of the parts it has two solder posts on it, its called the capstan motor, you need to apply power to the posts and the tape will come out but be careful when taking the tape out because the ribbon wont go back into the tape.

Removing dv cassettes manually


open the unit and look for a small motor that ejects the tape through a series of mechanical gears, slides and hinges. Now turn this motor by hand.
