Hi, I have a JVC GR-DVM90 and here is a great solution on fixing those problem codes that appear after you try to record or playback a tape.Go down to your local drug store and buy some rubbing alcohol and que tips.Turn your JVC camcorder on and hit the eject button. Now while its in eject mode and the tape is removed,remove the battery and all power sorces from the JVC camcorder.Dip your que tip in the alcohol,(dont soke it)look inside where your tape goes and you will see a black round opject.Thats the capsten.Rub the alcohol qu tip on that doing a up and down motion and go all the way around. After this is done your codes are gone and all you get is a clean heads message but thats easily fixed with a radio shack or any other head cleaner for this unit.E-mail me if you wish because this error code has happened to me and I have saved hundreds of dollers just by doing this. Later, Chubby

of course this wont fix those E01 and E04 problems that need the good old bash it against the table fix

I have also had these E06 problems, for more than one year. Sometimes my JVC DVX9 worked, sometimes donīt: those well known errors messages appeared and the cam became stucked.

I have tried some suggestions but, now, based on some hints on different forums I tried to fix it: I use a 1 mm high "sponge" self- adhesive on top of the mechanism where the cassete is inserted, on the side where that mechanism is blocked when the cassete goes in. I also used cleaning cassete when I got the error message related.

Since then, my cam hasnīt failed once. It seems like new. I hope this hint help a lot of desperated people, like I was before.

Good Luck, Paulo.
