Warning indicator “
” appears.

In such cases, use an optional cleaning 
cassette. Insert it and play back. If the cassette 
is used more than once consecutively, damage 
to the video heads may result. After the 
camcorder plays back for about 20 seconds, it 
stops automatically. Also refer to the cleaning 
cassette’s instructions.
If, after using the cleaning cassette, the 
problems still exist, consult your nearest JVC 
dealer.
Mechanical moving parts used to move the 
video heads and video tape tend to become 
dirty and worn out over time. In order to maintain 
a clear picture at all times, periodic check-ups 
are recommended after using the unit for about 
1,000 hours. For periodic check-ups please 
consult your nearest JVC dealer.
