JVC BR-DV3000 Mini DV-DVCAM issue

When I insert a mini dv tape into the 3000, it plays it like it is a dvcam tape. This just started out of the blue. It only seems to do it with the mini dv tape...not the standared dv tape. Any Clue?

    When playing the mini dv (SP) tape, in the BR-DV3000U, tape speed will search between SP & Cam making the output usless.

    That problem comes only when reading a MiniDv tape (didn't try with a Dv) but when recording, there is no problem

If the problem only shows with Mini DV tapes, it can be a tape guide issue or a mchanism loading problem where the tape is not being properly "seated" into the tape mechanism. You will need to use an oscilloscope to look at the RF waveform coming off the tape to try and figure out where your problem is.

DSR 11 won't record DV tape to its end


You need to use longer tapes. The DER-11 is a DVCAM deck which when recording, uses a faster tape speed then mini DV. Think of your older VCR's. They had SP, two hours, and EP or SLP, which would be six hours. The SP speed would give a better picture. DVCAM is more like an SP recording except digital and a lot better. More information is laid down on the tape.

You'll have to jump up to the full size DVCAM tapes in order to record the full hour.

With MiniDV tapes, the DVCam indicator ignites and the reading becomes jerked.


It could be several things causing your problem. The video head may be worn, the tape guides may be out of alignment or you may have a mechanism problem keeping the tape from wrapping securely around the rotating drum. If you can use an oscilloscope, you should check the RF signal coming off the drum test point to see if it is clean, or if half the signal is missing (bad drum or video head) or not smooth (guides out of adjustment).

Tapes not in 24p play for 2 seconds than stop, WHY?


The BR-DV3000 DV deck has LP inhibit function which is set in the operations menu. JVC does not recommend the use of LP mode and therefore locks this mode out by default. You can change this setting to allow operation in LP mode if you like but I don't recommend it. Using LP mode on DV tape causes the error rate to escalate due to the narrower track width produced by the slow moving tape. Good Luck, this is a nice machine!
