Here are some work arrounds i found on some users who have fixed the E04 error

Go down to your local drug store and buy some rubbing alcohol and que tips.Turn your JVC camcorder on and hit the eject button. Now while its in eject mode and the tape is removed,remove the battery and all power sorces from the JVC camcorder.Dip your que tip in the alcohol,(dont soke it)look inside where your tape goes and you will see a black round opject.Thats the capsten.Rub the alcohol qu tip on that doing a up and down motion and go all the way around.

hope this helps

    E04 means just that unit in safeguard Mode, In your case it sounds like a mechanic problem, probably one of the tractor wheels is not engaging or tape is getting stuck. Only way to fix this is by taking camcorder apart, this operation should be performed by an expert repairman.
    Check last pages of your user manual to find JVC repair service phone number. Also check your guaranty terms.

Fix JVC safeguard mode error message camcorder models...


I held the start/stop button in (the one on the top right part of tape opener plastic piece), opened the tape holder and slid the
button to "rec" all at the same time. This allowed it to open up and for me to recover my tape.

Doesn't sound like tape is recording or rewinding, power is up and unable to do anything because of e04 error


An e04 error is an error given by JVC camcorders that relate to a video head failure in the camcorder. The video head needs to be replaced as well as alignments to the unit. I hope this helps.

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.
