I have found, that by laying the cleaning stick agaist the drum or head and rotating the drum and the stick stationary seems to work great too.

If you haven't cleaned the video head yet this should be the next step. Get the proper video head cleaning swabs and cleaning solution (usually 100% alcohol or electrical contact cleaner) and open the video tape cassette compartment door. The video drum is the large rotating drum near the bottom of the cassette compartment. Being very careful, (never go up and down (vertically) on the drum), clean the head paying particular attention to the location where the rotating and non-rotating parts meet (that is where the actual video head assemblies are). Also clean the audio/CTL head, capstan, pinch roller and tape guides while you're in there. Give it a test and see if this has solved the problem. If it did not try the following. If you are handy with tools, have a set of jewelers screwdrivers (they can be purchased also and are fairly cheap), a set of magnifying glasses and lots of patience use the screwdrivers to remove the cases of the camcorder. When you get the cases off look for ribbon cables which are loose or out of their connectors. If you don't find any you probably have a problem which is beyond your repair capabilities and you will need to take it to a reputable repair facility. Good luck.

Smartparts the worst ever product I purchase ! My God help me out. Please does any one knows how to check the battery of remote control and his polarity. Otherwise I will throw the dumb product to thrash...

Shrikant:

This may sound crazy, but you can use either a digital camera or camcorder to check whether the Infrared remote control is working or not.

This is because the CCD in digital cameras and camcorders -- or even camera phones -- can "see" infrared light!

Install the battery into the remote and then push them botton on the remote and point the remote control at the lens of the camera or camcorder while the camera or camcorder is turned-on. If the remote control is working properly, you will see the emitter flash on the display of the camera.

If you don't have such a camera, borrow a friend's digital camera or digital camcorder.

I hope that this helps!

Thanks for using FixYa

JVC GR-D33 DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERA

This is a very common problem on modern camcorders. The C.C.D. imager I.C. is defective. Depending on the part price and shop rates, expect around $90-$180 to have it repaired.

Switching from auto to manual focus

AF/MF (Auto Focus/Manual Focus) * The AF/MF function works in CAMERA, M.REC mode only. * In most situations, it is better to use the automatic focus feature, as it enables you to concentrate on the creative side of your recording. * Manual focusing may be necessary under certain conditions that make automatic focusing difficult and/or unreliable. Auto Focusing * If you are inexperienced in the use of camcorders, we recommend that you make use of Auto Focus. Manual Focusing In the following situations, you may obtain better results by adjusting the focus manually: * A picture containing several objects, some close to the camcorder, others further away. * A person enveloped in fog or surrounded by snow. * Very shiny or glossy surfaces like a car. * People or objects moving constantly or quickly like an athlete or a crowd. Follow These Simple Steps To Set The Manual Focus 1. Set the power switch to CAMERA mode. 2. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the FOCUS is highlighted and then press the ENTER button. M. FOCUS(MF) will display. 3. Turn the MENU DIAL up or down until the object is in focus. Zoom out a little if focusing is difficult. 4. To return to AF (Auto Focus: ), press the ENTER button again.
