The problems sound like head or board issues. Parts are rare now so back to JVC's service if they support this.
I have a JVC MiniDv that is very user friendly, so I would like to be able to fix these problems, if possible:
1) when I playback footage on my viewer, I am getting a static sound almost in rhythm,
2) when I try to shoot footage outside, the image flutters like in a weird picture mode, oddly inside the house the footage is okay but the audio issue persists,
I am not sure which is more useless in addressing this, the manual or tech support. Anyway I ran a new headcleaner through it but that did not solve the problem, please advise.
