Just put the battery on it, and plug it into the charger (which should be plugged into a wall socket). Leave it plugged in like this but not turned on for 24 hrs. Someone else posted this solution above. It worked for me! And was a lot easier than taking out a bunch of screws.......
Setting the time & date is useless for this problem.
i have had mine repaired 2 times for this & its down a third time for the same reason. to me it
appears to be a waste of time & money to try & have it repaired. the best solution is to buy a new camcorder, something other than one made by JVC.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the moisture detection circuitry within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

its probibly early signs of condensation or a little damp air with faults of this nature same as lense cap fault and or condensation fault leave camera plugged in and switched on for a week . when camera has been on for a while dont put it straight into a bag or case leave it a room temp for a couple of hours after use before putting it away .
1. There is a silver condensation detector in the tape compartment, rear left corner. You can try cleaning this with isopropyl alcohol. I have tried this, and it did not resolve the problem.
2. You can open the camera and unplug the power connector. This will reset the camera, and will resolve the issue for several months. I suggest looking further on this site, where there are instructions for which screws to remove to do this. I have done this, and it has resolved the issued for varying lenghts of time on my GR D30U.
Most models of cameras have a built in feature to give you a message and turn off if it has condensation on the inside components.
Powering back on during this period can cause damage to components. It should remain off in a warm dry area.
Condensation might occur in high humidity, or when switching from a cool location to a warmer place.
Try cleaning your video heads with a "cleaning tape" let it play for 10 seconds then pause.
If that solves nothing your camera may have permanent damage in which case JVC or a repair shop will have to replace parts.
