Question about JVC GR-D270US Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

JVC camcorder says "Please Wait"...

... 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!

    I should add that this is a GR-D270U, not the exact same model shown here, as the LCD monitor doesn't show on the outside. You have to flip the little door open to see it.

Actually, I got the solution on the phone with JVC -- it was to remove the memory card which was still inside. Thanks.

Viewsonic VX2035WM monitor buttons no longer working

Most common failure in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed VIEWSONIC and ALL monitors to get some ideas what goes wrong:

What is wrong with my AL1711

This is possibly an inverter. When the monitor goes out, examine the LCD to see if you can see a faint image of the video being displayed. IF so, replace inverter. If not, possibly a bad LCD or video circuitry.
