Question about JVC Cybercam GR-DVP9 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Autofocus not working. 'Ratcheting' noise from lens area...

My camera has the EK suffix.
Focal length appears to stick and be unable to adjust in Autofocus mode. Whilst this is happening a ratcheting (repetative clicking) noise is heard from the top front of the camera (lens area).
Switching to Manual focus enables movement through whole of focussing range.

Hope you can help!

Sounds as if something is preventing the gears engaging. Service required.

SOURCE: No picture on my JVC GR-D72US

No Prob...I had the same problem with my GR-D72U. There is a defect in the CCD image sensor. JVC will fix it for FREE! All it will cost you is shipping it to them. Go to http://www.jvcservice.com/service/CustNoticeCamcorder.asp?PgReq=DspDtaDtl&MdlNbr=GR-D72US&Pgm=CCD , download the rapair request... Send it off to your nearest service center and they ship it back all fixed up in less than a week. I must tell you though, you ONLY have until Dec. 31 2008 to do this. Not only did they fix mine, they cleaned the heads but also buffed out a scratch. After you get yours fixed, post as many helps as you can to others.

SOURCE: Jvc GY-HM100u will not focus. I removed the lens

The most likely cause for this is a zoom or focus lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling camera to remove the lens block and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a 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.

How do you take a pic with the Nikon d60 where the background is blurred?


You're trying for what's called a narrow depth of field. DoF is controlled by three factors: distance from camera to subject, lens focal length, and lens aperture. The closer the camera is to the subject, the narrower the DoF. The longer the lens focal length, the narrower the DoF. The larger the lens aperture, the narrower the DoF.

Get as close to the subject as practical, and use as long a focal length as practical. I realize these two aims conflict with each other. For portraits, you want a focal length in the 50-90mm range and move in to fill the frame.

You want to shoot with as wide an aperture as you can. Unfortunately most lenses are not at their sharpest wide open. Also, the 18-55mm lens doesn't open up all that wide, f/3.5 at 18mm and f/5.6 at 55mm. To get the widest aperture, you can shoot in the P or A modes. If you don't want to leave the point&shoot modes, try using the Portrait mode.

Since you're not paying for film, I suggest you experiment with the different settings and shooting setups, moving closer and farther from the subject, using different focal lengths, and using different apertures, and see what results you get.

My sigma 105 lens do not go to f2.8. it reaches only f3. tanx. macario sakay


If this is the Sigma 28-105mm f/2.8-4.0 as in the title, then the maximum aperture will vary with the focal length. It is probably only 2.8 when the focal length is zoomed to 28mm. It will be 4 at 105mm, and at focal lengths in between it will be in between.

Blurry pictuers


First of all, tele-multipliers or tele-converters do not have the greatest optics in the world, and are usually fine for close up images but not much else. Secondly, they do restrict the amount of light coming into the camera which could interfere with the internal metering. Third, you have additional lens surfaces to get dirty. To fix the problem, start with the easy one, and clean all lens surfaces meticulously with a soft lint free cloth. If that doesn't fix it, try shooting non-moving objects in brightly lit areas. If you are still getting blurry pictures, try using the tele-converter on a close-up image within the focal length of the lens combination. If that doesn't work, give the teleconverter to someone you don't like and go buy a good quality 50-135mm zoom lens. Vivitar, Sigma, or other similar lenses are good quality and are very reasonably priced.

Tom, It's best to do the zoom first, then focus (if you are using the autofocus).

TCON


The focal length set on the camera is wrong. If you are using the TCON series extension lenses the focal length needs to be set at full telephoto, 36mm.
