    Have a similar problem. Not only will may camera go into safeguard mode but I can't even eject my tape

  • joannaszup Mar 11, 2008

    Yes, me too, my JVC GR-DF430U is showing error 01. It says UNIT IN SAFEGUARD MODE:
    REMOVE AND REATTACH BATTERY. I've removed, reattached, charged,
    uncharged the battery, slammed the battery on as recommended here, turned on, turned off, etc, nothing works. The tape will not eject
    either. Any other ideas?

EO1 is a load motor timeout error. This is normally caused when part of the transport is locked or jammed. A defective tape can also cause this error. The mechanism is attempting to move and is not being allowed to for some reason. Repeated attempts at running the camera in this state will cause the fuse to open in the regulator circuit. Have an experienced tech look at this for you. Good luck! Joe Weibel Customelectronics.org

Still having this problem too with the JVC GR-D27OU

load/eject barely works and when yi do manage to get a tape in then the SafeGuard mode error pops up.

obviously some kind of bug since this is a common problem apparently, ... hard to tell if its mechanical or software though.

anyone find a better fix for this yet?

I had the same problem with my JVC camcorder. I emailed JVC support. They responded with: Take the video tape out of the camcorder. Take the battery out for a few minutes. Replace the battery. If it works, do not use that video tape again....toss it. I did that and it worked. The error message doen't even suggest that as a problem. Hope this helps someone. Sharon

There is a little button that detects the presence of the battery. On JVC's you have to slam the battery on really hard. Or the button won't pop out. It won't reset until you "force" the button. The following link also might be of interest to you - http://jvc-class-action.blogspot.com/ Good luck

How do I get a jvc camcorder out of safeguard mode. Error 06


Step 1 Look at the camcorder's display to identify if it is in Safeguard Mode. If its display indicates an error number of E01 to E06, your camcorder is in Safeguard Mode.
Step 2 Disconnect your camcorder from its power source and remove its battery by sliding the latch forward and sliding the battery down while pulling it away from the camera's body. Wait at least two minutes before continuing.
Step 3 Remove the camera's cassette by pressing the "Eject" button, waiting for the cassette door to open, and lifting it out of the tape bay. This step is only necessary if the camera indicates the E03 or E04 error code or it tells you to eject and reinsert the tape.
Step 4 Replace the camera's battery, power connection and cassette, and turn the camera on.

JVC Camcorder Error code E 01


Your camera can not load mechanism completely(E01). Could have problem with mechanism or the mode motor itself fails. By the way, serial number is not necessary. Good Luck

E01 on jvc camcorder means that camcorder could not finish loading operation and switch to next mode for more then 4 sec. Usually, timing of the mechanism is out of order or mode switch is faulty. Overhaul of the mechanism plus full alignment is required.

You most likely have bad capacitors in the camcorder. Not a really hard fix except you need special surface mounted soldering tools, a service manual and a service wire extention kit. Very expensive these days to repair. There are a few Camcorder repair shops that charge a flat rate. You can look up camcorder repair up on the Internet and find them, or I will send you some if you need. In my opinion, it is time to retire the old girl and find a shiny new digital camcorder. They are not all that expensive these days. Good Luck

The power is now coming on but error message appears


In the case the encoder position is not shifted
to the next point though the loading motor has
rotated in the loading direction for 4 seconds
or more. This error is defined as [E01].
1. The mechanism is locked during mode shift.
2. The mechanism is locked at the mechanism loading
end, because the encoder position is skipped during
mechanism mode shift.
3. No power is supplied to the loading MDA.

Getting e01 message what to do


http://www.fixya.com/support/t103751-in_video_mode_error_code_message_e01 resolved it for me... Apparently the JVC cameras have a little button that detects the presence of the battery, but it doesn't move very freely and you really have to slam the battery onto the camera before it notices. Cleared my E01 fault first time after having been getting more and more frustrated since it first locked up
