3 month old JVC GY HM700 with dead pixel already???
on Oct 9, 2009 at 4:26:49 am

I bought two 700s a couple of months ago and I've been using one of them. The first time I used the second one, I found a dead pixel already (it jumps out during focus assist mode). This is my first foray into JVC products and I'm a little nervous now. Am I in for trouble?
I know it's under warranty, but I hate the idea of shipping it off already. I saw elsewhere in this forum about a way to access a menu to correct the issue. Is there such a method available for the 700?
Or does anyone have any advice about sending it back to JVC service (eg, is there a choice of where to send it?)
Thanks.
Anthony

I got it tooo.. You can take it away just by resetting it in the camera. If I remember you switch on the camera while holding the DISPLAY button. Then you select MENU while holding the FOCUS ASSIST BUTTON (the one on the side not the one on top).. and you get an enhanced menu with the option for killing dead pixels

Yes, thanks. I found out how to do it after emailing a JVC engineer. I thought I only had one pixel dead, but when I ran that fix, it looked like 3 of them lit up during the fix. Nice to know that menu item!
Thanks
Anthony

Hi. I noticed that you had some dead pixels and used the advanced menu to clear them up. I got to that menu but all I get is a flashing cancel. Is it doing its thing? How long do I have to wait?

Best.

Hi Thomas,

If cancel is blinking use the cursor to navigate to execute and then you are set. The blinking means you enabled the field in the menu, now navigate to the option you want which is the only other one, execute.

Hope that helps.

The blinking "cancel" just means that is what is selected. If you use the up/down or left/right (I forget which) the blinking "cancel" turns to a blinking "execute", then press the select button (center of the circle), and the process will start.

Hi Anthony
Do you still have the instructions on how to delete dead pixels, as I have had a few problems with my JVC GY-HM700E and would prefer to fix the problem myself than to send away fpor repairs. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Phillip,
Here you go... You may want to print this out and keep it in your camera case for future reference. I've had to do it every six months or so. BTW, a good way to periodically check for dead pixels is to put the camera in focus assist mode, and turn off all the monitor displays(!) and pan the camera a little and they will jump out.

Here's the procedure for the 700...

-Set the camera to 720 60p HQ
-Turn the camera off
-While holding down the display button turn the camera on
-Press the Menu button while pressing the Focus Assist button (the FA button on the side, not on the handle)
-Advanced Menu will be displayed
-Select the Advanced Function Menu and then push the Set button
-Select Pixel Compensation and push the Set button
-Change the parameter to Execute (it will be blinking "cancel", use the right arrow to change it to "execute"), then push the Set button
-Pixel Compen Executing will appear
-Pixel Compen End will appear
-Reboot operation is required to reflect the pixel compensation data

That's it. Good luck!

Noticed a couple of dead pixels while shooting earlier this week. I can access the Advanced Function Menu, but cannot select the "Pixel Compen Det" option. I know on the HD200 you have to be in 24p mode, so I tried that with no luck. Any knowledge on what mode the HM700 has to be in to activate the pixel compensation option?

I think the start up procedure on the 700 is a little different than the others as well. Here's the procedure for the 700 (I've done it and it works fine)...

Set the camera to 720 60p HQ

Turn the camera off

While holding down the display button turn the camera on

Press the Menu button while pressing the Focus Assist button

Advanced Menu will be displayed

Select the Advanced Function Menu and then push the Set button

Select Pixel Compensation and push the Set button

Change the parameter to Execute, then push the Set button

Pixel Compen Executing will appear

Pixel Compen End will appear

Reboot operation is required to reflect the pixel compensation data

I have done this procedure three time. It works up to the point that it is supposed to say "pixel compen end" instead it say that I have to turn the camera off and back on but in the background it says error in red. When I power the computer down and back up the dead pixels are still there. I have made sure that it is set to 720 60. What am I doing wrong?

Hmm. Not sure. It sounds like you got the procedure right (most of it is just to get you to that advanced function). Just a couple of dummy checks here...You said you started at 720 60, that was HQ, correct? Also... When you get to the "pixel compensation" menu item, the "cancel" is blinking. Did you change it to "execute" (by pressing left/right or up/down arrow)? Once execute is blinking then press the center button. It should begin executing for a few seconds (the message "executing" appears), before the "complete...turn camera off.." message appears. I've never seen the "error" appear. Sorry I couldn't be more help. It may be worth tracking down a JVC service engineer for possible online help.

Hi,
I have the 700 which is a different procedure than the 110.

Try this thread...its for the 100 which may be the same for the 110.http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/36/815989#816366

or do a search for "dead pixels". There are a bunch of threads
