JVC Video camera GZ-HD7U does not run off of new (tested GOOD) batteries. Only runs off direct plugin. Is there a fuse or something I can fix to have it run off the battery? Don't suggest new batterie

-Powers up fine when plugged in. -Batteries can power my second camera (same model) so it is not the batteries. -Terminals (Battery and camera)are clean and not bent. -Looking for a way to open the camera and fix the problem.

Does the battery make good contact with the pins in the camera? Try putting a bit of pressure on it or move it etc to see if the unit comes to life, if it does even momentarily you have a loose connection at one of the pins. Since you have a second identical camera check the continuity reading between all the pins on the good camera and then the bad and compare the two should be exactly the same. If not there's an internal problem wit the unit.

I bought my camera at American Electronics. I bought a 4 year extended warranty. My camera broke, I was wondering if I returned it if I would get the same camera back or a different one. I own a JVC...


It's JVC's choice whether to repair or replace the camera.
Possibly, for faster "turn-around", they will send you a replacement,
and _then_ "refurbish" the camera, and then try to sell it as a "refurbished" unit.

For you, that means that any recordings currently on the camera probably will be "lost",
because you'll get an "empty" 60 GB HDD inside the new camera.

Possibly, American Electronics can "archive" your recordings, before you send the camera away, and then "restore" your recordings onto the new HDD ????

No disc for my JVC Everio GZ-HD7U


You don't need the disc. Buy Corel's latest videostudio x2 for editing. To extract the video files from camera just plug into computer with USB cable and search the camera for files.

Remote not working


If you have a manual there usually is a master reset for your camera. Otherwise a menu item changed. Lastly I hope it hasn't failed on you.

You CAN NOT use the Firewire to capture your footage like DV or HDV camcorders. I too Have a macbook pro and use FCPS2 to edit my footage. If you want to get the footage off of the HD7u, you'll have to connect via USB2.0 and download the .TOD files and use a program to convert them. I use MPEGStreamclip. It will work with the .TOD files and convert them to a format that iMovie or FInal Cut will understand. If this is not for professional work you'll probably be fine converting the footage to the HDV standard or DV standard and not have to render in FCP to edit the footage. 
Caution... MPEG2 codec may be needed. If you have FCP or have Quicktime pro, you probably already have it other wise you can purchase it from apple for $29.99 or if you try real hard (not to hard) you can probably find it on a torrent for free.
I hope this helps your situation

UpDated Firmware for the JVC GZ-HD7U.


There currently are no updates for the camcorder, they discontinued the camcorder shortly after it hit stores.. seemed to have alot of issues.
To the other user with the similar issues. The camcorder isn't the same as a DV camcorder and you may not be able to capture live. My suggestion would be to mount the camera using the USB cable and copying the video files from the camcorders internal hard drive to your desired location.
You may need an application to convert the videos, I suggest MpegStream Clip. They have a version for PC and Mac.
