Hi, welcome to Just answer
How old is it ?
ok and you have already removed the battery pack and connected it directly through the adapter ?
still the problem is there ?
It sounds like the tape loads then dies
the power adapter or the inter power supply of the camcorder is faulty and will need replacement...looking at the age of the unit it is more likely the power supply of the unit
Should I try a battery if I can charge one up
after this if the problem is still there I believe you should get it repaired
you can also contact JVC customer support at 0345-310-8000.
if it is the power supply more likely it will cost around £80 for repairs
the parts might not be easily available as this model is currently not available
You can get back to me if you need any assistance and I will help with no additional charges.....Is there anything else I can assist you with today ?
You're welcome....Excellent feedback is appreciated if you are satisfied with my assistance....Have a Good Day
I have tried batteries and adapter. In all cases it seems to load and dies.There seems to be no power through the camera after switch on. In playback and record.
Bite the bullit. Thanks.
