Question about JVC Digital Cameras

Open Question

I have a JVC GY-DV5000 camera and two faults have developed. On occasion tapes get caught in the eject mechanism and end up sideways, these have to be forcibly removed. I also sporadically get a warning to clean the heads but am getting drop out even after a head cleaner has been through the camera.

SOURCE: Hi, my JVC mini DV

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

SOURCE: jvc dvx8 video camera head cleaning fault

The cleaning tapes that are available are often ineffective. The heads are cloggd up and need to be cleaned professionally. The only way to clean these now is top open up the unit. This should only be done by a service center as it is easy to cause more damage. Also at the same time, the alignment should be checked.

Hi Donald. not sure how many calls you get from


The fault seems to be in the sensor and the mode switch of the loading system which is connected with the main controller processor and loading driver.
This can be a failure of the tape end detector which is a IR - infra red- emitter which is placed in the center of the tape tray and MUST feed continuous signal to the END IR detectors placed at either ends.
Also the tape seems to load with a false detection of the cassette within when the tray is closed for this reason of the failure along with a possible misplaced mode switch settings. This triggers to make the loading move without a reason and so can be due to failure of the the mode switch or unbalanced settings.You will need some experience to remove the tray unit, then check on the IR sensors and also check the settings of the loading drive and mode switch.

Canon hi-8 camcorder will not playback recordings. full battery. ejects tape during playback


It sounds like the tape isn't turning and the player thinks it's to the end of the tape and ejecting it.Perhaps when you rewind its drawing the tape up so tight the sensor thinks it's at the end.Take the tape out and see if you can turn it by hand to release the tension.There's got to be some form of release mechanism to let the tape free wheel.Once loose I'll bet it will playback just fine.

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.

JVC GR-D31 camcorder showing "Condensation" warning - no matter what I do. Suspect faulty dew sensor. What can I do?


There are two options here:

1) Eject the unit so that the tape compartment is open and blow air into the camera using a fan. That should reduce any condensation inside that may exist.

2) If the above does not work, the sensor could be bad or the connections onit could be bad. You will need to remove the door to gain access to the mechanism. You should be able to see the sensor inside. It will appear to be like a small grid on the face of the mechanism. Check the connections on it. If they appear to be OK. Call up JVC and order a replacement dew sensor.

If you don't feel comfortable working on camcorders, please seek out an authorized JVC service center.

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.
