Question about JVC GR-D20EK Camcorder

1 Answer

No view on viewfinder or screen

Have not used the camcorder for a while. Was getting the E03 message, but that has now cleared. The camcorder now appears to be recording etc, and I get all the usual messages / icons etc on the LCD screen and viewfinder, but its as though the lens cap has been left on, and nothing is viewed through the viewfinder or appears on the lcd screen.
It is my father in laws 90th birthday next week and I would like it to be working.
Thanks

My Sony camcorder often stops and a writing appears: "Use the infolithium battery pack" It happens either when I am recording or I am watching the tape and can happen any time, after five minutes, ten...


It sounds like you are using an aftermarket (non-sony) battery pack. The camcorder you are using probably requires the Genuine Sony 'Infolithium' Battery pack (usually in the box of the camera). If you are getting this message with the proper battery installed, i would contact SONY

E04 Error


Eject tape leaving cover open and remove battery. Re-insert battery and re-insert tape also leaving cover open. Keep repeating this process until eo4 message disappears. This worked for my GR-DVL100e after about four repeats. After getting your camcorder operational, they say it is good practice not to leave tape in camcorder when not in use.

E04


Here's what i found. I was able to clear the message by opening and closing and ejecting the cassette. I also had to play with the battery at the same time. Keeping the cassette door open and then pulling out the battery. After is did this a couple of times i got the message to clear. I too haven't used my camcorder for some time and now that the error message has cleared the camcorder tells me that i need to clean the heads. Hope this helps. Below is the message i found that pointed me toward ejecting the cassette. An error indication (E03 or E04) appears. - (E03 or E04 UNIT IN SAFEGUARD MODE REMOVE AND REATTACH BATTERY) This massage a malfunction of some kind has occurred. In this case the camcorder's functions become unusable. - Eject the cassette once and re-insert it, then check if the indication clears. When it does, you can resume using the camcorder. If the indication remains, consult your nearest JVC dealer or service center

Weird error message


For Models: CC6254, CC6364, CC6374, CC6384, CC6394, CC9360, CC9370, CC9373 There may be a simple solution. Do the following: * Turn your camcorder's power off, then disconnect the power source (battery or AC adapter). * Remove the clock battery, if equipped with one. * Wait a few minutes, then reinstall the clock battery. Reconnect or install the power source — battery or AC. * Then try turning on the power again.
