I stripped the tape mechanism and remover the recording (drum) head and underneath was a small piece of plastic - looked like it was from a tape housing. after removing plastic bit and reassembling camera it has been perfect ever since (now 3 years
This will solve your problem

    Here
    are some common JVC Error codes:



    E01

    Tape load / unload time-out



    Generally it's a mechanical
    problem, with defective gears in the tape loading mechanism.
    You can expect to pay major labor for this type of repair.
    Parts are nominal.


    E02 Supply reel error


    E03 Take-up error




    Most common in the Mini-DV models. This problem
    can be defective reel tables, and it can also be a defective
    rotary encoder. You can expect to pay
    intermediate to major labor for this type of repair. Parts
    are nominal.


    E04 Cylinder error


    Very common. Problem is due to
    cold solder on the cylinder drive PC board. Re-flowing the
    solder solves this problem. Labor is typically intermediate,
    to repair this problem.


    E06 Capstan error


    ·Generally either a defective
    capstan motor, or cold solder connections. Since the soldering
    process is surface mount technology, both tedious and time
    consuming, labor can be intermediate to major.


    No Picture in Camera mode (All models)




    Defective CCD imager. The CCD imager is the device that 'sees',

    directly behind the lens. Labor is minor to intermediate,

    model dependent.

EO3 is comming up


Many possible causes, mostly coming from the tape. I hope tape is still can be ejected, try to change with a new one. If still persist, something wrong inside could be a belt or the capstan gear broken. If you know how to open your next problem is the spare parts. Good Luck!

My camcorder goes into safeguard mode EO3 when I try to clean it.


I have had the same problem with a different model JVC. I haven't been able to fix it yet, but there were a bunch of people on a different forum that were able to fix that error code quite simply. With a tape in the machine, flip the lever to eject the tape, then as soon as you hear the motor start to whir, quickly close the door.
It didn't help me, but like I said, several people reported that that action fixed the EO3 error.

E04 Error


Eject tape leaving cover open and remove battery. Re-insert battery and re-insert tape also leaving cover open. Keep repeating this process until eo4 message disappears. This worked for my GR-DVL100e after about four repeats. After getting your camcorder operational, they say it is good practice not to leave tape in camcorder when not in use.

JVC GR DVL 9000 digital video camera EO3 problem?


In the case no REEL FG is produced for 4 seconds
or more in the capstan rotation mode after
loading was complete, the mechanism mode
is shifted to STOP with the pinch roller set off.
This error is defined as [E03].
However, no REEL EMG is detected in the
SLOW/STILL mode.
1. The idler gear does not engage with the reel disk well.
2. Though the idler gear and reel disk are engaged with
each other, the tape is not wound because of overload
to the mechanism.
3. No FG pulse is output from the reel sensor.
4. No power is supplied to the reel sensor.
5. Tape transport operation takes place with a cassette
having no tape inside.
6. The tape slackens and no pulse is produced until the
slack is taken up and the tape comes into the normal
status.
