Question about JVC GY-HD100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

The batterys are charged, but nothing happens when I turn it on.

I was just recording, then the battery was going down, and I switched out the battery to a fully chagred one. Now when I click 'on', nothing happens! I have tried using other batteries but nothing is working. It is a brand new camera, I looked for corrision and used an eraser, but nothing was there. Help!

    Thank you! I may have changed the battery without the camera being off first, what happens then?

This camera and the model before it have a problem with inrush current opening a safety fuse on the DC-DC converter board. If this is the case, JVC will replace the SMD fuse with a modified part number, this should resolve the problem. Please be sure the camera is off before attempting to change the battery, this can also cause this problem. Good Luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

    The chemical internal fues located on the regulator board may have opened up and need to be replaced. This is not easy to do without a hot air station, you might damage the board attempting to replace this SMD type fuse with a standard soldering iron. I would refer service to the JVC factory in Lawrenceville, GA. this is not an expensive repair unless there is damage to the board.
    We repair many of these for JVC each month, they are very durable cameras and do not have many problems at all, most of the cameras we see have been dropped and abused.
    Good Luck to you.

D60 will not turn on - why?

If the camera has only been off for a few months, I would recommend that you take the camera and the battery to a camera shop, verify that the current battery is holding a charge and then check the camera with another battery.

Have an Acer M5-538P-5859 Lap top, that is 1 mo old. It is a Windows 8. It was left on with only battery power, for a number of days. I plugged in the charger and nothing happens--No lights on, no p

If you let the battery charge for about ten hours it might work. If you just want to see if the computer will work remove the battery and try with the charger plugged in. If you don't need to carry the computer around a battery is not needed. Some batteries will not recharge if they have been discharged too much. If you are going to use it with a battery I suggest that you set your power setting to turn the computer off after a period of unuse and this problem won't happen again. Check Ebay for a battery replacement.

Does the battery get hot when it is on the charger. Possibly a bad battery.

Optura 60 cannot be turned on

Whether you think the battery is fully charged or not this sounds like a defective battery problem. Have the battery checked.

My 2005 durango want cran over

What happens when you attempt to start the engine? If nothing happens when you turn the key,you need to check the battery to determine its state of charge. Many starters won't do a thing unless there is at least 10 volts available from the battery. A low battery does not necessarily mean the battery is the problem, though. The battery may have been run down by prolonged cranking while trying to start the engine. Or, the battery's low state of charge may be the result of a charging system problem. Either way, the battery needs to be recharged and tested. If the battery is low, the next logical step might be to try starting the engine with another battery or a charger. If the engine cranks normally and roars to life, you can assume the problem was a dead battery, or a charging problem that allowed the battery to run down. If the battery accepts a charge and tests okay, checking the output of the charging system should help you identify any problems there.

leave on charge for two hours, then with the SD card out hold down the reset button at the back of unit for ten seconds and then the 'on' switch for ten seconds.
