Question about JVC GR-D90U Camcorder

1 Answer

Dark screen- No images- some shadows horizontally

My JVC camcorder is approx 4 yrs old. Received it new as a gift---never used before. Recently set up camera for filming-----was not able to view any images in viewfinder or on LCD screen. All I seem to get is a grey---blank screen with some shadows across horizontally.

    Thank you for your assistance. I will seek a camera shop in my area. I regret that I didn't try this earlier while it was under warranty. I hope it will not be an expensive repair.

If you get a blank LCD, dimly lightened by a whitish back light, then the LCD display eis either faulty, badly connected, or the ribbon connector to LCD is defective.
The camera must be taken apart, ribbon cable tested, and eventually replaced and adjusted.
If all contacts on ribbon cable return continuity (cable is fine), then LCD is faulty, and must be replaced.
Althought the job is not too difficult, an user without experience may damage the camera in attempting this repair.
My first suggestion is always taking the unit to a camera shop.

Unable to see any picture on my JVC GR-D22U Camcorder. Please help*


I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let you use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap.

I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.

The JVC C-Format camera can have one of two seperate problems that cause this symptom. The connector to the CCD comes loose and causes loss of video. Also, the CCD has been a source of problems for some time now, JVC will repair this for you free of charge if it's the CCD causing the problem. Good luck to you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Horizontal snow lines on record and playback


the symptom is caused by a dirty video head. sometimes cleaning tape cannot do all the jobs, especially when the dirt is so much that any cleaning tape cannot remove it. open the cover, use a clean white paper dampened with a little alcohol. use your finger on the paper and gradually move the head drum back and forth. donot move the paper up or down. just move the drum slowly. good luck!
