Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Blocks of noise

When playing back a recording it almost seems like it is playing back in somewhat slow motion, sort of like a tracking issue. When I play back a previous DV that worked fine it now shows the same things. Can you help please?

Don't know about the slow motion, but the noise is usually from dirty heads. Just like a cassette player it needs them cleaned periodically. Dip a Q-tip in rubbing alcohol and rub over the entire path the tape takes. You'll see a little block that actually reads the tape. Thats what you need to clean.

Make sure you eject the tape and remove the battery while the tape drive is open to clean it. Rubbing alcohol dries fast but give it an extra ten minutes and check it again.

Video recorder while the heads were dirty will not change however new video should be clean.

You may also have a bent tape carrier that is putting your video off track. It needs to be pushed or pulled to realign it.

It it's not the cause though, this can make playing back the earlier tapes more difficult since they will read and record in a slightly different part of the tape.


Good luck!

This smacks of the same problem that the old VCR's used to have. One of you are out of sync. The tape records on a portion of the tape in a sort of straight line track. Think of it as your track is down 1/16" from the top. The other camera tracks it's video down 1/8" instead. That's why in playback it can't read it. The only cure is a realignment. Nimsgame

Playback intermittently plays in slow motion and in fast


Have you tried using a different DVD-RW? If you have used the same one over and over, it may have been corrupted by frequent use.

Has the camcorder done this since you bought it or is this a recent problem. If it is more recent it could be a problem with the read/write heads on the camera itself.

If this doesn't work, comment on the solution post and we can continue to trouble shoot.

Hope this helps!!!

VX2100 record settings for slow motion playback when editing


you can't ! you have to slow you footage afterwards.
Anyway, try to record with a slow speed shutter (1/30th of a second or less) to fluidify your images but if you want to slow down your footage, it's probably because the scene is "fast" and this doesn't could help you anyway !!!

I have a VX2100 and am interested to know what the best record settings are if you plan to do slow motion playback when editing.


There is no ONE setting for the three areas you stated, However, if you want the object/event/action seen in slow motion you can among other things: A) Over crank the recording speed during recording. B) Record at standard speed and slow the motion in editing. C) Add more ram and upgrade your NLE and compatible video card.
What ever you decide, make sure you have plenty of light facing the subject if possible.

Recording using A/V in jack - 18 seconds max allowed


Well there could be a couple things- A. there is a problem with the camcorder's software, which will need to be fixed by a LONG phone call with Aiptek Support B. You could be using the wrong component cables for your TV C. You could have the quality set TOO high for your TV's (The PS2 is NOT HD) I recommend DVD quality for this
Hope this helped, sincerely- animation508 (youtube username)

Tracking seems off


I have had the same problem. There is no way to manually adjust the tracking on this Hitachi, or on most 8mm cameras, for that matter. I copied all of my more recent tapes to DVD first (2 copies of each) and then I went to the oldest tapes, which for some reason were OK. When I got to one tape that gave me trouble, I just let it play in the camcorder for about an hour. It adjusted its own tracking so that the picture was OK. Then, I rewound the tape and copied that one. I still have 2 tapes that will not adjust. I am going to send those out to a copying service. I hope they can adjust the tracking and make the copies I need.
By the way, I used this camera and a Panasonic DMR-E55 to make the DVD copies.

It's not tracking -- it's dirty heads -- you can purchase an 8mm head cleaning cassette and use it to cure these problems. Tapes recorded with the dirty heads may still have issues afterwards.
