TROUBLESHOOTING
Before consulting your JVC dealer, please check the following to see if you can correct the problem yourself.
Vertical white lines appear when shooting a very
bright object.
• This sometimes occurs when the contrast between the
back-ground and the object is great. It is not a defect of
the camcorder.
Bright, crystal-shaped spots appear in the LCD
monitor and the viewfinder.
• Sunlight is directly entering the lens. This is not a defect
of the camcorder.
Colored bright spots appear all over the LCD monitor
or the viewfinder.
• The LCD monitor and the viewfinder are made with highprecision technology. However, black spots or bright
spots of light (red, green or blue) may appear constantly
on the LCD monitor or in the viewfinder. These spots are
not recorded on the tape. This is not due to any defect of
the unit. (Effective dots: more than 99.99 %.)
Animation or Time-Lapse is not available.
• Before recording in the Animation mode at the very
beginning of a tape, set the camcorder to the Recording
mode for about 5 seconds, so that the tape runs
smoothly. Using the Fade-in function at this point is a
good way to begin an animated program
( pg. 21, REC TIME/INT. TIME in SYSTEM MENU).
The tape is running, but there is no playback picture.
• The TV has not been set to its VIDEO mode or channel.
• If A/V connection is used, the TV’s VIDEO/TV Switch
has not been set to VIDEO.
Playback picture is blurred or interrupted.
• The video heads are dirty or worn out. Consult your
nearest JVC dealer for head cleaning or replacement.
The tape stops during fast-forward or rewind.
• The Counter Memory Function has been activated
( pg. 14, “Counter Memory”).
The date and time displays disappear.
• If you remove the power source from the camcorder
while the power is on, all settings and selections are
erased. Make sure to turn the camcorder’s power off
before disconnecting the power source.
The tape will not eject.
• The battery pack is running low.
• If the LCD monitor is not open over 60 degrees, the
EJECT switch r does not function.
The camcorder is a microcomputer-controlled device.
External noise and interference (from a TV, a radio,
etc.) might prevent it from functioning properly. In such
cases, first disconnect its power supply unit (battery
pack, AC Adapter, etc.); and then re-connect it and
proceed as usual from the beginning.

CAUTIONS
When using the AC Adapter in areas other than the USA
• The provided AC Adapter features automatic voltage selection in
the AC range from 110 V to 240 V.
.... avoid prolonged uncharged storage.
.... remove from charger or powered unit when not in use, as
some machines use current even when switched off.
• It is normal for the battery pack to be warm after charging, or
after use.
Temperature Range Specifications
Charging ................... 10°C to 35°C (50°F to 95°F)
Operation .................. 0°C to 40°C (32°F to 104°F)
Storage ..................... –10°C to 30°C (14°F to 86°F)
• Recharging time is based on room temperature of 20°C (68°F).
• The lower the temperature, the longer recharging takes.
USING HOUSEHOLD AC PLUG ADAPTER
In case of connecting the unit’s AC Adapter to an AC wall outlet

Cassettes
Video Light
To properly use and store your cassettes, be sure to read the
following cautions:
DANGER:
1. During use . . .
.... make sure the cassette bears the S-VHS-C or VHS-C mark.
.... be aware that recording onto prerecorded tapes automatically
erases the previously recorded video and audio signals.
.... make sure the cassette is positioned properly when inserting.
.... do not load and unload the cassette
repeatedly without allowing the tape to run at all. This slackens
the tape and can result in damage.
.... do not open the front tape cover. This exposes the tape to
fingerprints and dust.
• The video light becomes extremely hot. Do not
touch it either while in operation or soon after
turning it off, otherwise serious injury may result.
• Do not place the camcorder into the carrying
case immediately after using the video light,
since it remains extremely hot for some time.
• When operating, keep a distance of about 30 cm (11-13/16”)
between the video light and people or object.
• Do not use near flammable or explosive materials.
• It is recommended that you consult your nearest JVC dealer for
replacing the video light.
