I'm not sure how you can describe going from one unsupported OS to another counts as an 'upgrade'. However, what you will need is the drivers for your 'current' OS. I feel it is highly unlikely they will still be available.

Fixya does not sell spares or accessories. Were these items not included in the package when you purchased the camcorder ? They should be available either from JVC Spares themselves, or on Ebay

It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to 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.
