Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

It just won't turn on


before i throw this camera in the bin, i wonder if it can be fixed. had it for years, but about 3 years ago, it just wouldn't turn on at all. its as if there is no power whatsoever.

i have 2 batteries, both of which i have charged, but the camera is just dead.

is there a fix?

if so any idea's how to get in it for a look, i tried undoing all the screws i could find, but it still wouldn't come apart.

They are designed to be curious adult proof, hand it to your local 5 year old and it will be apart in no time =)

There are a few screws that tend to blend in on these, plus most of the case is held together with internal clips that will pop apart when enough pressure is applied.

Ok, now onto your power problem. There will most likely be a fuse (it won't look anything like any fuse you have seen before) near where the battery pack connects to the circuit board. It will probably be white in colour and only 1 or 2 mm long. It will look like most of the other components on the board but will have a marking nearby starting with "F" like F101 or something along those lines. The "F" is obviously for fuse.
Check any of those you see with a multimeter for continuity since there will be no physical damage to it.

Hope that helps =)

    That is where the fun just begins =)

    Your local electronics shop should have surface mount fuses in stock. If not, Use a bit of the lightest gauge fuse wire you can get your hands on and tack it with solder from one contact to the other to put the bridge back in place.

    If you have any old circuit boards laying around, then check them for tiny fuses or small black surface mount resistors marked "0" or "00" (they are zeros for the record) as long as there are no other numbers besides "0" some have upto 4 of them.. if I remember my days at school 1x0=0 and 4x0 still only equals 0 hehe ... ahhh techs, we are all nuts.

What your having a blu ray problem, you can buy a lens for around $40 on ebay. Try to find a local repair shop so they can change your lens as its not easy to install.


You can get a Full Blu Ray Drive instead of the lens for around $60, just plug and play.

Better then spending $300 for a new one.

Camera fixing

What happened is the lcd ribbon has loosed up or came off altogether. Try this;turn camera on,squeeze case between your fingers,where sony logo is,if ribbon is just loose the lcd should come back on. If this doesn't work,take it to a local camera shop and have them fix it,it's a very simple fix.

Access problem with DSC-W50

It's a problem with the lens. Usually, the internal focus lens jams up, or is out of alignment. It has to be opened up to be fixed, and the lens might have to be replaced. Occasionally, you can give the camera a good whack in your hand while it's powering up. Just be very careful not to hit the lens, or the LCD; as they can be permanantly damaged. Hit it with your palm on the corner, or edge. Also be sure the camera doesn't fly out of your hand...then it, or something will break, obviously.
