JVC Camcorder Stuck in Safe Mode

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...


I have a JVC camcorder which continuously says the unit is in safeguard mode. The manual said to remove and reattach battery which I did. How do I get this thing out of safeguard mode?

JVC notes that you are also given a malfunction code when the unit is placed into safeguard. If it displays code 01, 02, or 06 you should remove the battery and powersupply and wait for a while. Code 03 and 04 indicate that you should eject and reinsert the tape.

In neither of these solutions work, your only alternative is to bring it to a shop or send it to JVC for diagnosis or repair. Unfortunately, there is no other way to clear the condition.
