Question about JVC Video Cameras
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.
