Question about JVC Video Cameras

1 Answer

I have a mini jvc digital video camcorder. All of a sudden the Menu button and the button you press to take a still picture won't work? I had left it outside in my car over two nights. It was fairly cool out. When I brought the camera back it there was condensation on it when I took it out of the case. It has sat in the house for over 8 hours now and the battery is fully charged but it still won't work. Any suggestions?

Depending on which model of camcorder you have, it can take far longer than 8 hours to get itself warmed properly inside.
If possible, open any slots it has on it (tape and memory card slots etc.), and take the battery out/off - leave any battery compartment door open too. And leave it in a standard temperature room for about half a day. A memory card type camcorder should take less time than a Mini-DV or DVD model, but the time to 'defrost' can vary a lot from one model to another.

Don't leave it near to a heat source (like a room radiator) to warm if faster, as it has to do it naturally over time. Most DVD and Mini-DV types will give some kind of indication about condensation being a problem though - a warning light may show, or a message saying *DEW* or *CONDENSATION* may appear.
If other buttons seem to work, but just not the ones you mentioned, then it may be they have damp behind them. This may dry out over time again, but also sometimes the tiny buttons need to be cleaned off inside. Not a simple task as the item would need taking apart just to be wiped inside the buttons/contacts.
Hope that helps a little.

Cannot record due to a black screen


OK, that means you can see clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes and camcorder just wont give you live view to record any more.
If its true then it is known problem/ failure of ccd imager in your JVC GR-D33 camcorder.
JVC will repair it free of cost, click JVC CCD Imager Advisory for details.
Thanks.

Want to view my canon mvx330i camcorder through my tv


Open the front plastic cover to the right of the lens and expose the ports. The yellow one is the AV port. Press the MENU button on the left side and use the rocker switch above to display AV-PHONES, select AV, and press the MENU button to set it and close the menu. Turn both  the camcorder and TV OFF. 
Connect the camcorder AV port to the TV RGB inputs (VIDEO + AUDIO L + AUDIO R) with the cable that came with the camcorder. It has a mini stereo plug at one end and three RCA plugs at the other.
Switch everything on, press PLAY on the camcorder (don't forget to make sure the cassette is wound back to the start). sit back and enjoy.

JVC Picuture gets blurry


The ccd block is starting to fail. Thats the chip thats the eye of the camcorder at the back of the lense assy. Its mounted on a small circuit board. You can find the chip at parts.com. Its just a matter of dissassembling the camcorder and removing the chip from the board and soldering another onto it taking care not to over heat the chip. You do need good soldering skills.

Where is menu on switch


According to the manual, the Menu button is on the rear of the camcorder, just below the battery. Pressing this button activates the menu, and using the dial on the lower left side of the camcorder allows scrolling and selection (press the dial in) of menu items.

Safegaurd mode


Unfortunately this is a repair issue. There are several failures that can occur, none of which will be resolved without service, that create this safeguard situation. Often the fpc cable which carries sensor information to the micro has been injured and that requires repair. Good luck, magic seadog
