JVC GR-D250U digital camcorder, only 2 years old, began displaying "unit in safeguard mode remove and reattach battery". Problem. I've complied over and over and display remains the same. I tried removing battery and plugging into wall for power to no avail. Display message remains the same.
JVC tech on phone said it needs to be seen by service tech. Theirs charges $68 after I mail it in just to diagnose the problem. They said it probably needs a new power board, although it powers up fine. The local authorized repair shop charges $70 to diagnose. Their tech told me it looked like a software problem. THe administrative assistant told me repairs on a unit like this usually runs about $175. I'm better off investing in a new camera. Although, I can't afford to do that every 2 years.
