... whenever I open the LCD monitor to record now. I've used it a lot for over a year with no problem, and this started just a couple weeks ago. It takes about 10 seconds for the "Please Wait" message to go away, and so I'm often missing the shots I want.
One thing I did for the first time a couple weeks ago, that I thought might be related, was using the "Copy" feature. I just discovered that I could freeze the tape and copy a still shot onto the memory card. I did quite a bit of that a couple weeks ago, and thought maybe having the "Copy" setting still turned "On" was causing it, but I've turned that back to "Off" and it still does it.
I always use the adapter, so it's not a power problem. Would love any suggestions on how to resolve this. Thanks!

Disconnect the battery pack or the DC power plug on the back of the camcorder if the LCD screen displays error code "01," "02" or "06." This resets the camcorder and unlocks the unit from safe mode. Wait 10 minutes before reconnecting power.
Make sure the camcorder's power is off.
Open the LCD monitor (cover (MEMORY CARD).
To load a memory card, firmly insert it with its
clipped edge first.
To unload a memory card, push it once. After the
memory card comes out of the camcorder, pull it out.
Do not touch the terminal on the reverse side of the label.
Close the card cover.
To protect valuable files (available only for SD
use the snap button to capture a scene.
The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

It's definitely an internal problem in your camera and it sounds like you don't have any warranty after 5 years. I don't have a step-by-step help guide for you since I don't know about this camcorder but in my opinion, if the camcorder is really that good, it's worth the repairs. Though HD camcorders are getting cheaper these days...
Not only you. A lot of people have same issue.I have read a lot of questions and answers,forum about JVC software Power cinema ...etc... ( go to www.videoforums.co.uk/general-sofware-problem/12080-jvc-everio-sofware.html ).Headache.That sofware from JVC is a scrap.
Buy a DVD Recorder ( cheap one ) . Record directly from your Camcorder on Replay mode. That is my way.It is good.
Please tell all of your friends,family , co-workers never buy any products from JVC again. NEVER all your life.
I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let you use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap.
I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.
