Combos of button hitting? Sounds like the old Nintendo game from the 80s, Contra! I actually remember that code. Up down, up down...etc.

Hey, I called JVC and they gave me a phone number to call about a "service manual". This is the number 1-800-882-2345

I called it and was on hold for 15 minutes before hanging up. I have a shoot I need to be on, so if anyone else wants to call and see if we can get a service manual...great.

Also, I just found a bunch of sites with downloadable service manuals. Maybe we can find it on there? I have looked, but maybe I have missed it?

Someone is selling service manuals for the HD10U and HD1U on ebay. If you go to ebay and type in HD10US in the search bar it should be the only listing that comes up. It is listed at 24.75 for the buy now price. Not sure if it's legit or not but thought I would let you know.

There isn't anything useful to the average user in the service manuals..don't bother buying it unless you plan to take the thing apart and void your warrenty.

Probably a waste of $25 and it isn't worth the warranty void, good call Murph.

Does the service manual confirm my suspicion that the sd-hd switch on the side of the camera actual does a lens movement also? I think SD uses a smaller part of the cdd.

I couldn't make sense of it, neither could an engineer friend of mine.

I'll bet there are similar menus in the JVC HD cameras.
I don't own one yet, but if I did, I would try a bunch of stuff while powering it on to see if I can find it.
JVC GY DV5000 has all kinds of stuff in there.
Lets hope that the HD cams have some stuff too.
Let the search begin!

ps: I'll trade 40 running min of 16/35mm 2K film scanning for one of these JVC cameras! No Kidding!

Sadly I know exactly what you're referring to as it was the only way to defeat the vile Red Falcon. Now excuse me why I go and fire up my NES emulator! :)

I bought it as well. Send me a PM or an email and I'll give it to you (I don't have access to HD1/10s anymore).

My friend has my HD10, and I can't find the service manual. It's on a CD somewhere. Glad Xander is stepping up to help out.
