SSE culprit?

So I had my JVC GY-HD100 with no problems whatsoever...but just in case I sent it for the "A" upgrade. When I get it back I started getting the dreaded SSE even at 0db. I thought it was the lenses I was using...but after testing it in every shape or form, I noticed that something was not quite right.

I ended sending it back to JVC to get the famous SSE re-calibration...much to my surprise I finally ask them how come 10 days have passed and I don't get my camera back. The response...maybe mid January as there is a part in backorder. A part? I thought it was a simple calibration. It just so happens that the Optical Block is damaged.

I've searched this forum and seen people with optical block issues but it seems that the norm is that half the screen turns one color (yellow, red, green) while the other stays intact. This was not happening with mine though. it just looked like the plain 'ol SSE that some of us have experienced.

Has anyone sent their camera back for SSE problems only to be told that their Oprical Block is messed up? I just don't get it. I must be missing something here. Is this it?...new Optical Block equals no problems whatsoever...EVER?

if you are getting your optical block replaced under warranty... don't complain, be happy. its an expensive part. If they determined it wasn't right and are taking care of it before it outright fails they just saved you from having to send it in again when it . Optical blocks can fail in more then one way, not just the out right colored image some others have experienced.

not complaining...just don't get it. They went ahead and ordered the partwithout my permission...so I am assuming they will pay for it. Out of curiosity, how much does a new Optical Block goes for in the GY-HD100?

$952

if its being done under warranty, its no cost to you so why are you concerned about " your permission". be happy they are doing the right thing so it doesn't have to go back again when you get it back.

Any idea why JVC cameras fail so much?

I don't see other forums complain so much about their equipment as the JVC forum.

JVC cameras fail no more or less often than other camcorder makes or models.

You don't see other forums complain so much about their equipment -- or praise it so much -- as you do here, because this forum is by far the single largest community of JVC Pro HD owners and operators on the internet. Therefore this forum carries the greatest number of both praises and complaints than you'll find anywhere else on the web.
