Cassette will not stay in

Camera was sat on while cassette door was open. It jamed - now it keeps spitting the cassette back out. I had to bend the door back slightly to make it latch but do not see any other damage.

This is a serious mechanicle problem, you may have to take it to the service center, or else blind tries may spoil the equipment.

I have an ancient JVC GR-sxm320 can't find the Manuel and can't open the cassette door.

There are two reasons normally that the cassette door won't open when you slide the Eject button on the JVC GR-SXM320. One: the camera uses a powered eject feature. If the battery is low and the AC adapter isn't plugged in and powering the camera, this doesn't work. Two: if the LCD monitor screen is not open to more than a 60 degree angle, then there is an interlock that keeps the cassette door closed. This avoids the door hitting the screen. It's best to have the monitor at a 90 degree angle to the camera body when you open the cassette. Press Stop if there is a chance that the camera is recording to the current cassette.

JVC has the manual here: http://resources.jvc.com/Resources/00/00/97/LYT0465-001A.pdf .

Note: since the camera is older, check that the AC adapter is getting warm when it's plugged in and connected to the camera. This checks if the adapter is working. Check if your battery pack is good. If you have the BN-V856U battery pack, you need the AA-V80U charger to charge the battery. The charger that came with the camera will not work.

Third party battery packs and chargers are still available for the GR-SXM320. Use the manual to look up the part number and Google for the battery or use the camera model number to find available parts. For example, a replacement BN-V11U battery is available at Amazon and here: https://www.bestbatt.com/JVC-BN-V11U-BN-V12U-BN-V14U-BNV-V18U-Battery-p/bbbnv11u.htm .

I hope this helps.

Have a JVC GR-D72U video camera. A E03 indicator keeps coming on and it goes into safe mode. What can be done? How can it be fixed?

This problem mostly happen due to defective cassette, by ejecting it, it will solve your problem. If your tape stuck-up inside, apply power, open cassette door, keep it open (around 5 sec) until it opens. and try with another cassette. It must work if not, expert are needed in this case. Good Luck

Car casette player won't accept cassettes. I put a cassette in and it spits it right back out.

Your casette player must have something lodged in it that's why it spits the casette tape back out. If you are able to, try dislodging the player from your dashboard. Shake it and if there's something noisy inside, chances are that's your culprit. Try to get it out by shaking the player while keeping the casette tape door open - like getting coins from a piggy bank. :)

Hope this helps!

Cassette doesn't load and move down into machine

I had the same problem. With the camera on, keep taking the battery off and putting it back on. Start to close the door and then open it. Eventually you should hear it try to move. Keep doing it and it should move down all the way.

DEW message keeps coming up on camera

Dew has condensed in the camera. Eject the cassette but leave the cassette door open.remove the battery . Borrow a hair drier . set it to optimum temperature(not vey hot but but hot enough to cause discomfort when blown on fingers). direct the hot air through the cassette compartment door for about five minutes. reattach the battery and reinsert the tape.
Good Luck,

Aj-d200 video camera, cassette door stuck partially open. best diagnosis and/or remedy?

Partially open sounds like a mechanical problem with the cassette housing/door assembly. The door usually stays fully open or will not open at all, caused by component failure on the mechanical driver board. Check to make sure nothing is stuck in the mechanism, like a label or a broken piece from a cassette. If the door will move, but will not latch closed, the problem is most likely on th emechanical driver board.

Intermittant problems closing the cassette holder and playing the video (using the camera)

Cassette jam

I had this problem, and here is how it was resolved.

My cassette would not pop out when I opened the door with the camera turned on. When I turned off the camera and opened the door, it slid out much further, but still failed to pop open so that I could remove the tape. Then it slid back in.

Remove the battery, and have the camera off, but make sure the power cord is connected. Open the door until the tape slides out further than at other times. (Note: It intermittently slides out further when the camera is off. Sometimes it will not slide out any further than when it is on.) When the tape is slid out as far as it will go, quickly remove the power cord. The tape will stay in the slid-out position. Now, at the bottom side of the tape door there is a curved channel for a small pin to slide in. This channel has a 90% curve at the bottom of the channel to catch the pin, which holds the door closed. Push that pin back a little (toward the lense) to get it to go around that 90% curve, and the door will pop open so you can remove your tape. The ribbon of your tape will be jammed in the camera a little, so you will have to be careful and move the ribbon around a little until you can get it out freely.

This worked for me twice. I did not try putting a tape in again.

I hope this helps.
