Grounding for BR-HD50?

Hey folks,

I have been encountering inconsistent instances of noise blocks/breaks on some footage being played back through my BR-HD50... a friend took a look at my setup, and suggested that maybe the deck is not properly grounded. I see that there is a grounding screw on the bottom left of the deck's back connection panel...

There is no direct references to grounding in manual (that I could find)..

does anyone have any input/advice?

hope you all enjoying your weekends..

Sorry, but i can't answer your question. Looks like not many peolple use this VTR on this forum. I asked several times how reset the timecode, but nobody answered yet.
If you go to JVC, please do me a favour, and ask them how we can reset the timecode to zero.
I deeply appreciate.

Thanks: Laszlo

BTW: I do not ground my machine, but i don't have your problem.

It could be dirty power coming from your supply - do you have a nice voltage regulator/power conditioner between your expensive deck and the wall? It would be a good idea regardless of whether that's your problem.

All a surge protector will do is (hopefully) protect you from spikes. Power conditioning is a whole other ball game.

The one that I use is the Tripp-Lite LC2400.

Whichever you buy, you should consider the collective maximum wattage draw of all connected equipment. The LC2400 handles 2400 Watts, which maxes out what a 20 amp circuit can provide.
