hi, there is several reasons for not work the record function, first of all make sure that the cassette is good and the safety tab is in record position, then check the playback of the cam with a recorded cassette, if this tests passed, check the rec button for loose or it is sticky, if so please use contact cleaner in the switch. still the problem persists there should be problem in the circuit board. open total camera put it in record mode then test the wave shapes in the record paths up to the video head

I was unable to fix it but left it plugged in and on and after a long period of time it would work. Maybe the heat from being on. Try storing it in a bag with desiccant packs.

You may download a copy of the manual from here. It appears the camcorder was introduced around January of 2005.

The GR-D270U uses SD cards. They should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store.Make sure you get an SD card, not an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work.

Your loading motor is no longer working or your mechanism is out of alignment.

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor. This will require disassembling the camera and removing the lens assembly to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired 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.
