    I was given a JVC GR-AX96U video camera. It is totally dead, and won't
    do a thing either with battery or AC adapter power. Apparently, the
    original owner was using it in a very high heat industrial environment
    when it expired. I am thinking it might be a voltage regulator, but
    wonder if it has a main fuse or other thermal circuit protector in the
    power supply stage that might have failed.

    It was destined for the dump, so I have very little to loose by trying
    to repair it. If anyone has a service manual or schematic it would be
    greatly appreciated.

    Like most camcorders there is no voltage protection to speak of.
    Manufacturers build them like that to get more repair work out of the
    consumer since overvoltage and reverse polarity are common problems.
    If you have repair experience/knowledge you can do a manual trace
    through the power paths untill you find the culprit.(diode, capacitor
    If you have any doubts better to send it to a shop and at least get an
    If it IS a power supply issue it usually doesn't cost much to repair,
    at least if you are dealing with an honst repair shop.
