Camcorder (used only twice)now says communication error

I try to record and the camcorder blanks out and shows a pix of the camera and a battery and says "communication error" and then shuts off. I have made sure it is charged and I've also tried to take the battery off and put it back on. Any help would be great.

    I have the same problem on my GRD340 except it's with the original JVC battery which has worked for 18months or more. I bought a new battery as well and still have the problem

Just found a workaround for the "cheap battery" problem. The problem is that there is some circuitry in the more expensive JVC batteries that the generics don't have. When this isn't detected by the camcorder, it won't function. It's a neat trick to make you buy the proprietary battery. Well, the generic battery I have has a plug in the back of it so you can charge it with the JVC factory supplied charger. There was also a jumper cord supplied with the camcorder. Plug this in the back of your cheap battery, plug the other end into your DC port on your camera, and voila! You're in business. Downsides are that you have a short cord between the battery and camcorder and the battery indicator won't work so you'll need a spare.

Try using the orijinal JVC battery, sometimes compatible batteries cause this kind of problems.

I can't watch back my recorded cassette, on my camcorder? i'm getting an error message C31 23

Sony is pretty secretive about the :23 code. It can't be found anywhere. However, to service the C:31 code, Sony recommends you do the following:

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Videotape is at end of recording space. went to record new event and tape came out of casette and will not play or rewind in video camera

Try another tape in camcorder to make sure that camcorder is OK.
If same problem comes with another tape, check any error sign blinks in camcorder LCD? Usually this kind of problem happens when Dew sensor activated.
Remove battery/ power source from camcorder for 30-40 minutes, reattach battery / power source with camcorder and try.
Let me know model and brand of your camcorder for more research.
Thanks.

What is the problem in my camera it show c 31 and can't work it out?

This error message may come if the recording media you are using is either not supported for use with the camcorder or the media has a problem.
Ensure the recording media you are using is supported for use with the camcorder or try using different recording media.

JVC EVERIO HYBRID GZ-MG330 Battery error?

I bought a replacement data battery BN-VF-808U from Digicowfish through Amazon.com. (?made by PomerPower).
It fits nciely to my JVC Everio GZ-MG330 which uses a BN-VF808U data battery. However, JVC gives a screen message:Communicating Error.
Now I have solved my Communication Error by using a jumper cable provided with the replacement battery BN-VF808U to connect the attached replacement battery to the camcorder. There is a DC input socket on the camcorder. There is also a DC input socket on the replacement battery for direct connection.
