E04 Unit in safeguard mode : Remove and Reattach Battery
I have had this same problem since my warranty ran out on my JVC DV camcorder. When I turn it on to record or play, a code appears on the display screen "E04 Remove and reattach battery. Unit in safegaurd mode." I have tried to remove the battery and replace it and I have the head cleaned. Twice I have brought it in for repairs but over time the same thing comes up. Can any one tell me what causes this and how to rectify it.

I have the JVC DVP7, and get the EO1 message when a tape is inserted, then I hear a mechanical buzzing/spinning/vibrating sound, and it pops the tape back out. I've tried resetting, using different tapes, etc. What should I try? I've tried to search through many of the posts here but didn't find a solution? Thanks!
I have the same problem. It sure seems weird that everyone is experiencing it around the same time.
I've got the GR-DVL355 and had the same problem as everyone is writing about and I've just fixed it..... All you need is some Mr Muscle Window & glass cleaner and 2 cotton buds. Firstly take off the battery and unplug and mains adapters. Secondly using the glass cleaner and a cotton bud clean the pinch roller - this is the black rubber roller next to the white guide. You need to press quite hard and expect to get a dirty cotton bud once done. Lastly using a different bud clean the head by holding the bud against it and spinning it. Do this twice and hey presto....well it worked for me.
Every time I turn camera on it comes up with E-02 unit in safe guard mode
I can't tell you how to fix it cuz I have taken mine in 6 times for this problem and it always comes back. I have since replaced it with another model.
I just did what that said..messed around with it for a while....turned those little white pegs clockwise mostly....and not my camera works again!! I hope it lasts. Let me know if it works for any of you guys.
I have the same problem with my DVL300, there is something that realy works! Eject the tape (if the camera allows you to) take the tape out. You can the a transparant LED at about the middle of the tape. Below that LED there is a flex-foil (browncoloured), when I carefully put the flex foil back in position (towards the camera) the camera works again without headcleaning or removing the batt. I guess that the tape eject system pulls the flex-foil out of position and after hundreds of time damages the flex untill you gat a bad contact there. Greetz, Roelon (electronic hybrid designer)
Thanks Steve, the option worked for me too! My camcorder was only 1 MONTH OLD when that message came up! Now its fine. Thnaks.
I've been watching these "posts" for some time, after I bought one of these units off of E-BaY. I also, am used to fixing electronics.tried everything in every forum to fix thr unit, to no Avail.I cleared up the Condensation Error Message,E01, but i could never get the Door to close. Finally sent it out for repair.JVc, does have some fix-it answers if U e-mail them.But,if those don't work, it's got to go in for Service.i'll keep U posted.
