JVC Camcorder - used wrong power lead to charge battery

I used the wrong power cable to charge the battery and it would not charge, I then found the correct power cord and still nothing happening. The correct lead has a current adapter near the end of the cable, whereas the wrong one I used didn't.
I think I may have blown the circuit on the power supply, is there an easy fix, spare part I can get and replace without paying £100 to have it done??
Peter not quite the same, but I damaged my power cord and cannot charge my jvc camcorder. I tried splicing the charger and the cord together(I had cut the cord in an accident) but it will not work. is there an alternative way to charge the camcorder without the powercord?

    I have exactly the same issue. I did replace the battery holder unit on the rear of the camera, (an older JVC SMX) but still no-go, even with a correct powercord and charging unit. I am concerned I blew something else in the camera.

I agree; you probably ruined the unit. You can TRY a new battery with its own dedicated charger and see if that works. Good luck friend.

The best thing to do is buy another battery pack that matches your battery. As of mine my original JVC Battery Pack = (7.2V 700mAh)
BN-VF70U 1.5 Hr
BN-VF714Y 2Hr 40 Min
BN-VF733U 5Hr 40 Min
were still okey. I just charge the battery while it's still in the camera using the JVC AC Adater Mod. #: AP-V14U.

They sell external battery chargers for these for around 10 bucks at Amazon. Just pop the battery in the charger. Beware the battery itself can be worn down or dead. It also has protection circuits right inside the battery that can be blown (maybe a small fuse too). A new high capacity battery (3 times the recording time) is also at Amazon for around $25.

its true that normally you don't need to download the driver, however when it does pop up, i'd say go here http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=87522 and just download the zip file for the drivers.

SOURCE: Cassette removal from dead Canon MV650 Camcorder

I just solved my own problem by disassembling the camcorder until I had access to the little motor which operates the eject mechanism. It sits on the corner of the mechanics subassembly, close to the cassette. By applying about 3.5 Volts DC from a regulated power supply to the two motor contacts, it started to operate (test which direction it needs to go by trying both polarities) and lifted the cassette out of the play position and ejected it. Only since the tape was still wound around the drum, I had to use a thin tool to turn the cassette hub in order to tighten the tape a bit. Then the protective cover of the cassette closed and I could slide the cassette out of the slot by hand. Bingo!

Well the first thing I would do is recommend you send your unit in for service as you may end up doing more harm then good. You can call and get free estimates on what this may cost. If you need any further assistance or help locating a service center let me know.

Camcorder not charging


Since the camcorder will power up and work with the charger connected, it sounds like the battery has died and will no longer hold a charge.

No power from batteries and the camcorder will


I have the same problem. The battery is charged, but the camcorder will only work while plugged in. It worked for a while on the 1st day, Christmas, then it would only turn on while plugged into the charger and would stay on after charger was disconnected. Today it will only stay on if plugged into charger.

The camcorder won't come on.


Can you plug the camcorder into the wall via the provided dc cable and your ac adaptor? If so your battery terminal cound have gotten bent, or a fuse link could have opened up inside. check above test first.

JVC GR-D350U Digital Video Camera "Communication Error"


Just found a workaround for the "cheap battery" problem. The problem is that there is some circuitry in the more expensive JVC batteries that the generics don't have. When this isn't detected by the camcorder, it won't function. It's a neat trick to make you buy the proprietary battery. Also suspecting that with the JVC battery, if the circuitry gets fried for some reason, the battery will no longer work. Well, the generic battery I have has a plug in the back of it so you can charge it with the JVC factory supplied charger. There was also a jumper cord supplied with the camcorder. Plug this in the back of your cheap battery, plug the other end into your DC port on your camera, and voila! You're in business. Downsides are that you have a short cord between the battery and camcorder and the battery indicator won't work so you'll need a spare.
