Help! JVC Mini-DV Fault Message" Unit in safeguard mode"

Anonymous (not verified)

Help please! I own a JVC GR-D20EK Mini-DV camcorder and recently had a message come up when I turn it on. It says" E01 Unit in Safeguard Mode Remove and Reattach Battery" I have done this to no avail. The tape is also still inside. Does anyone know how I could overcome this problem or the choices I have.

Regards Kevin.

I MADE MINE WORK!!!! With the camera off, I pressed and held the "play"
button while I powered it on into playback mode. It actually let me
watch the tape. I switched it to "REC" mode and still got the error. So
I switched it off, pushed and held the rec button while powering it
on... IT WORKED. Now I can power it on and off with no more error
messages (so far)! Let me know if this works for you too!
