Having problems with your JVC Digital Cameras ?

Hello I have a faulty JVC GR-DF470. It seems that some models (not this one), had a malfunctioning CCD Image Sensor. This appears to be the case with this model. JVC will no longer fix the problem free, so I am just concerned as to how much a new Sensor would be? It sounds expensive! Thank you Allan Wilkins

This is not going to be cheap to replace. As soon as you get out of the warrenty period and end up purchasing repair parts from the factory you will usually pay as much as a new camera or very close. Repair parts are priced differently (quite a bit different) so even minor parts are rediculously expensive. As an example $100 Canon camera, replacement cost on ccd unit is $229 not including labor or shipping. Even the battery doors and small parts will cost a good chunk of change when purchased through the repair parts system.

Your options here are limted. You can buy the part but you will pay more than what you will to purchase a new replacment camera. Usually the replacment cameras even if just a few months newer have better specs and more options. So you would actually get a better camera than what you have now. And it will be brand new and have warrenty.
Unfortunetly it is just not cost effective to repair most small consumer electronics these days once they are out of warrenty.

My Sony H1 can no longer work with recargeable batteries so I had to use AA alkaline last year. Now this year it will only take 4 or 5 pics with new alkaline. So am using Lithium, it takes about40 pics then shows batteries dead. What is the problem with it needing stronger batteries as it gets older? Can that be fixed so I can again use rechargeable batteries?

JVC mini-DVR video camera model GR-D750U not operating properly.

My camera has a delayed response when I push the shutter button down to snap a picture-it takes 3-4 seconds and then the moment is gone! Another problem I have is the pictures moniter are blurry. Also, the battery life in the camera is extremely short. I charge them on a regular basis. (My daughter threw the camera on the floor in a rage)is there any way the camera can be fixed or will it cost just as much to buy a new, better one?

Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen. I have replaced the batteries, tried changing settings and nothing works. I too can see the icons and view previously taken pictures but can take no new ones. I feel that paying $350 for a disposable camara is a bit much! I purchased it just a little over a year ago. I saw on the Canon website that they are fixing

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen. I talked to customer support and they told me that Installing the new version of their firmware, v1.01 would fix this problem. I've since installed the new firmware version, but I am still receiving the lens error. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Please help!!!


As solutions 1 & 2 indicate, lubing the gears works!! This is a great camera, so I hope all of the QV-R4 owners try this. I may become a maintenance item for the camera.\015\012 \015\012I have a few a ... Casio QV-R4 Digital Camera

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.


Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

Connection Problem My Olympus D-560 would lock when I tried to connect it to my PC, a Compaq Presario 6000 about a year old. Since the camera was brand new, I suspected the computer and spent many frustrating hours uninstalling this and reinstalling that. Finally, I sent the camera back and Olympus did a firmware upgrade, which fixed the problem. Then I stumbled across a post on another board that said that the Oly has problems with AMD processors.

Bad Battery My DIgimax 530 has had battery problems for some time now. I know that this problem has not been like this forever. When I put a new battery in, it uses it quite quickly, then says low battery. The only problem is, when I test the batteries with my battery tester, it says that they are partially full (still in the "good" zone). I am just a kid and don't have much money, I use it for the video feature. It's warranty has timed out, Is there a simple solution?
