Technicians at AVRepair have over 30 years of experience in repairing JVC camcorders. With quality service and workmanship guarantees for both parts and labor, you'll get more usage out of your camcorder, and more bang for your buck.

You can find our labor rates here, so the only question would be the cost of parts. Once your unit is on the bench, we'll be able to determine just that, and contact you with all of the costs involved, and how long your unit's stay with us will be, all before any charges become due.


Here are some common JVC Error codes:

E01 Tape load / unload time-out E02 Supply reel error
E03 Take-up error E04 Cylinder error

E01 Tape load / unload time-out  ^ Top

Generally it's a mechanical problem, with defective gears/ levers in the tape loading mechanism. You can expect to pay major labor for this type of repair. Parts are nominal.

 
 
 
E02 Supply reel error  ^ Top

Most common in the Mini-DV models. This problem can be defective reel tables, or it can also be a defective rotary encoder. You can expect to pay intermediate to major labor for this type of repair. Parts are nominal.

 
 
 
E03 Take-up error  ^ Top

Most common in the Mini-DV models. This problem can be defective reel tables, or it can also be a defective rotary encoder. You can expect to pay intermediate to major labor for this type of repair. Parts are nominal.

 
 
 
E04 Cylinder error  ^ Top

Very common. Problem is due to cold solder on the cylinder drive PC board. Re-flowing the solder solves this problem. Labor is typically intermediate, to repair this problem. Of course, the cylinder, or drum could also be defective.

 
 
 
E06 Capstan error  ^ Top

Generally either a defective capstan motor, or cold solder connections. Since the soldering process is surface mount technology, the repair is both tedious and time consuming, labor can be intermediate to major.

 
 
 
No Picture in Camera mode (All models)  ^ Top

Can be a defective CCD imager, a defective lens, or electrical connections that have been broken. Depending upon which of these your camcorder has, labor will vary between minor to major.

 
 
 
Camcorder Eats Tapes  ^ Top

Defective idler assembly, reel table, or debris on the tape path. Incorrect back tension. Labor is intermediate to major, with parts averaging $65.00.

 
 
 
Dew Detected  ^ Top

Either a defective dew sensor, or cold solder. You can expect to pay intermediate to major labor. Dew sensors are approx. $20.00.

 
 
 
How much do you charge for estimates?  ^ Top

The estimate fee is $30.00, and is waived if your unit is repaired. That's fair, isn't it?

 
 
 
How much do you charge for return shipping?  ^ Top

Negotiated rates with UPS have resulted in typical GROUND shipping charges of $10.00. Every repaired camcorder is insured for it's value, and we only tack on $1.50 for new packing supplies.

If you'd prefer to use a different shipping carrier, or if you'd like us to use your account number when shipping, simply let us know...

Once your contacted with the estimate, simply let us know what method of UPS return shipping you would prefer. If there is no preference mentioned, we automatically ship regular UPS GROUND, insured for value.
