    I have a JVC Digital Video Camera GR-DVX707.


    Sometimes when I turn it on I get the message: Camera in safe mode,
    re-insert tape' When I take out the tape and try to re-insert it, the
    canera will not close unless the film is taken out.


    Other times it works no problem.


    Anyone put there with any ideas??

  2. Do you live in a humid environment, and does this happen when you come
    into an air-conditioned environment from a hot and humid day?

    Camcorders don't like condensation, because the higher friction due to
    moisture is destructive of tape and of the transport and head
    mechanism.

    I must say that "Safe Mode" is not a very informative message. Does
    their manual give a hint?

    HTH,
