All battery times are estimates. Maximum battery time will be achieved by less frequent use of zoom, digital circuits and auto focus. We recommend following the instructions in your operator manual for proper recharging procedures for your battery.

I cannot speak to your specific model but, most cameras only have a limited amount of built in memory. To be able to have a decent amount of recording time, you will need to by add-on memory. Look in the camera's manual.

My JVC camcorder keeps saying lens cap is on and it wont view any image just plain black. I have had it for about five years first time anything like this has happened. I think it might have been dropped...

That sounds like the shutter is stuck closed. Unless you're highly technical, if will most likely require servicing. Get an estimate first, the repair cost can be worth more than the camera.

Simple solution... it needs the heads cleaned. Buy a cleaner an run it for the perscribed amount of time... Not so simple solution, the heads are out of alignment, or worn out... needs a repair facility.

    Camera mode video not working

    This could be as simple as the iris stuck closed or more expensive (ccd defective). Without taking the camera apart, it will be difficult to say with any confidence. Have you looked around to see what a repair estimate will cost? Perhaps you can get a detailed estimate from a local shop. We may be able to walk you through the repair?
