Question about JVC GR-D50 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

No picture when recording, please help

I can only record sound and was reading here that this is a common problem with the JVC. Someone had a link to request free fixing of the problem until October 2007 but it was for US residents. I'm in Australia and was wondering if anyone knows does the same apply here? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Before you send it out to be fixed, when was the last time you cleaned the "heads"? I suggest you buy a "cleaning tape" first. Sony makes an excellent one. Follow the instructions that come with it. Takes 5-10 seconds. There are two methods in cleaning the heads, "Wet" and "Dry". Dry uses a small amount of special abrasive on a tape that is designed to remove and trap dirt and oils. Wet uses an alcohol solution to remove the dirt. you can use either. I prefer the wet because it is less damaging to the heads but it is also harder to do and takes more time and I have have a lot of patience. With the wet you can also clean the tape guides where you can't with the dry. For the general public use the dry tape system about every 25 hrs of recording or playback time. This should fix your problem. If it doesn't then you know you need to have it professionally cleaned and repaired.

Does the JVC DR-MV5S DVD recorder/VCR combo unit have an analog tuner or digital tuner, so that you can record one channel while watching a different channel on your TV?

You can read what JVC is telling about the recorder. It is not an digital tuner, but still you can record a DVD and watch another channel or vice versa.
