20 Most Recent JVC GR-D295U Mini DV Digital Camcorder Questions & Answers

The battery is very likely BAD (has high internal resistance)! Can you take the battery OUT, and run with ONLY the charge cable attached? Does that make any difference in performance?

Please check your drivers are on the PC for your camera so the PC can see your camera connect to it, when you plug your camera into the PC USB slot you should see a message come up near the bottom right-hand corner telling you your connection has been made, if not then your camera driver is either missing or damaged, go to camera makers site and download driver again.
Good luck.

This is a cracked gear in the tape transport system and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by 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.

note error codes displayed - if camera shuts off immediately ; if tape is inserted ? put camera to your ear and apply power : if more than one motor sounds ( or sounds ' jerky ' ) your tape may be damaged - no user serviceable options left ; if no tape is inserted ? check with stacy sample at jvc factory service in houston , texas - for possible warranty updates .
