JVC GR-D350U audio static on play back AND issues outside

by hohenzollern5 / December 21, 2017 8:50 AM PST

Dear forum,

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.

Get repair estimates.

The problems sound like head or board issues. Parts are rare now so back to JVC's service if they support this.

Maybe tape

Does this happen on all your recorded tapes? If it is just on one tape, because it is rhythmic, I would suggest the tape may have been damaged by being near a magnetic field that has put a "spot" on the tape.
If the fault is on previously recorded tapes then R Proffitt's answer would be the solution.

Whatever the result, I would suggest you move on to a SD card based camera. They still have their problems but :-
1) The mechanisms do not wear.
2)SD cards do not deteriorate, like tapes, with time.

I still have my Canon HV20 but have worked with SD cards for six years now.
