Camera on/off dial broken. Need parts diagram.
I have a JVC digital video camera (GR-DVM70) and the on/off dial came off. I'm looking for a parts diagram so I can order replacement parts.

Does anyone have their old dials that have broken off? I'm going to try to glue them back on as suggested by Don, but the little wires on the back of my dial are now bent so it doesn't work very well. If you have no use for the old dial, I'd be happy to take them off your hands. Let me know. Thanks.
i have a problem since day one i purchase it.when it first came out.my turns on but i can not view what i recorded.it just shuts off when in play mode.i can record no problem.if anybody knows whats the problem.please let me know how i can fix it.
My on/off dial also came off and ever since I had it repaired I get an error message "E04" and can't use the video. I sometimes can get it to start immediately after charging the battery once I shut it off, it won't start again. I've tried replacing the battery but still get it. I can't get an answer from JVC or the authorized repair shop as to what this error message means (it's not in the manual). Anyone have a clue? Also, when it does start up it sounds different than before the dial came off - like it's having difficulty starting and revving up.
My power/control dial broke off also. According to my son "it just fell off". A local repair shop checked with JVC and the part(operation unit assembly) cost $125.
I was able to fix this. The complete switch assembly is part# LY20421-003D for $125 from JVC. You will need a very small Phillips screwdriver, and you'll need to unsolder the mic from the old unit onto the new unit. I would go slow and be careful, not wanting to strip the screws or break anything else! A magnifer is helpful. Good luck to all.
My power-switch/control -dial broke off, too. I spoke to a rep at the JVC Svc Ctr in Foster City, CA, who said it was a common problem, since using one's thumb to apply pressure to the outer ring tends to gradually pry up the ring (and thus the whole button/dial. I agree this is a design flaw, but what can I do? Parts and labor estimate: $275 plus shipping.
This happened to my camera too. I e-mailed jvc and told them they should fix this be cause it is obviusely a design flaw. They said it never happens lol.
The exact same thing happened to ours...mind letting us know what you find out? We called JVC repair store located in our area, but they said we have to send back to factory to fix.
