Remove the Philip head screws from the top, sides and/or back to reveal the innards. You should have enough room to pull back the small tensioner pulley and sort out the tangle. Do not remove or reroute the tape from the heads or it may jam again causing more damage. Now hit eject and try to help the tape out if need be (watch the finger tips) but don't touch the heads at all. Doing so will get dirt and grease on them making your tapes stick more often and others read poorly. You can use 99% USP rubbing alcohol to clean them using either a glasses cloth (has to be microfiber) or q-tips.

Tape got stuck in camera. How to remove it?


Considering how complex the mechanism is, you are encouraged to refer this unit to a trained service technician. There is a great chance of actually damaging the mechanics of the unit by attempting a self-repair.

Hi, my JVC mini DV Video Camera has fussy lines through any recordings and says the head needs cleaning. I've tried using the miniDV head cleaner tapes - but to no avail. Have you any...


It could be video head dust or the tape guide were out of alignment or it had been magnetized
In any case you should bring to JVC service center or JVC itself to repair this problem. They must connect your CAM into computer to check up and realignment DO NOT use the tape cleaning it won't help you sometime it cause more trouble such broken video head
Cheers

The tape must be broken or rolled inside the camera, try to see if you can open the camera door a bit and force tape out. You will probably lose the tape.

Camera is a JVC GR-DF470 Video Camera. Problem is UNIT IN SAFEGUARD MODE EJECT AND REINSERT TAPE ERROR 03. I have done this and problem still remains.


I have the same model of camera and the same problem has occurred after two years of use. I am not sure why it happens but checking on other web sites, it may have to do with tape tension and the brand of tape. Up to now, I was using Sony and JVC tapes which worked fine but a recent purchase of TDK tapes seems to have caused this problem.

My fix was to take the tape out and then manually wind the tape a couple of turns by inserting one flat blade screwdriver in the tape lock tab (bottom middle of tape case) and using another to wind the tape. This appeared to fix the tape tension and after loading it back in, the tape and the camera worked fine.

Hope this helps.
