This is most likely a problem with one of the motor sensors and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repairedby a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Hi tlaufer , According to the symptom this problem is related to the VIDEO HEAD, As you earlier try to clean the head but no results, Please open the cassette compartment of your camera (as when you insert the cassette in it) for 30 mins (remains open cassette compartment) Actueally some time due to moisture head get durt. After 30 mins insert the cassette and play it. Hope it will start work again fine. But if no result from the said procedure then there must be a damadge of point of the head, in this condition you have to replace the VIDEO HEAD assembly. Thanks for using fixya.
E01 means Mechanism has not fully loaded up to the stop position
E06 meansTape drive motor is not rotating or stalled.
Thses two faults indicate a tape jam. please remove the cassette and insert a new cassette.
I solved the problem! Open the video cassette door. Look closely at the gear mechanism and see if there is any small debris in the gears. If not, using a magnifying glass and a paper clip(must stretch it out and use the tip) gently move each gear(gently). I had my unit ON. Once I moved the gear it became unstuck and ejected Mini DV cassette. I then re-inserted the cassette and it worked. The dreaded SAFEGAURD MODE message was gone and it is as good as new.
Here's what i found. I was able to clear the message by opening and
closing and ejecting the cassette. I also had to play with the battery
at the same time. Keeping the cassette door open and then pulling out
the battery. After is did this a couple of times i got the message to
clear. I too haven't used my camcorder for some time and now that the
error message has cleared the camcorder tells me that i need to clean
the heads. Hope this helps. Below is the message i found that pointed
me toward ejecting the cassette. Good Luck, i'm off to buy a tape head
cleaning cassette. An error indication (E03 or E04) appears. - (E03 or
E04 UNIT IN SAFEGUARD MODE REMOVE AND REATTACH BATTERY) This massage a
malfunction of some kind has occurred. In this case the camcorder's
functions become unusable. - Eject the cassette once and re-insert it,
then check if the indication clears. When it does, you can resume using
the camcorder. If the indication remains, consult your nearest JVC
dealer or service center
man just try pushing that place by a small support on its lower side. ( imean below... just the opposite side where it is told to "push here". i hope if you didnt broke its locking mechanism, it will work..
The switch is board monted and is actuated by the loading compartment when it is closed near the rear of the cabinet. It requires an extensive tear down to remove the board before the switch can be replaced. There are other problems that occur also. Does the drum spin up? If so, then the tape is rcognized but its another problem.
