Question about JVC GR-DX100EK Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Internal clock battery not working - thus, can't download into computer

JVC Mini Digital Camera     GR-DVM5U  about 10 years old.  Was told the battery in question in built into the mother board.  Don't know if this is true.  The charging system no longer charges this up, so I can't set the date/time and therefore cannot transfer to my computer (Apple imovie).  
I first noticed the problem developing when I had to hold the record button down for about 15 seconds before 'record' would kick in.  Don't know if this is related, but suspect it is.  
Can the clock battery be changed out or what can be done?

Some of these batteries are soldered onto the board because of vibration concerns. Yes the battery can be chaged. It incvolves takeing hte camera apart though. I would not suggest that you do this unless you have worked on cameras before.

As far as the record not happening right away... That is another problem not related to the bad battery. I would need to research that problem a bit before I comment too much.

Keep us posted.

It says set date and time, and it can't record


Okay, then set the date and time first.

This is like a requirement for you to be able to start recording.

For more information, it is still best to consult the manual.

Here is an available one for you to download. Goodluck!

Jvc digital video camera mini dv gr-d244u


I have had the same problem...usually had success by taking off the battery, putting it back on, turning the power off and on, etc.  It has always gone back in eventually.  I also tried re-charging the battery and replacing.  Could this be an old battery problem?  Mine is 4.5 years old.
