    I have the same problem.

    Even after removing the lens cap, it says remove it.

    That means, there is some sort of mechanical problem.

    Can anyone help me. Thanks.

I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER!
this is a strange method so bare with me (found the solution on another site)
turn on the camera and then hold it upside down then for want of a better word "tap" the camera near the lens (i tapped the mic in front of the flash) and hey presto your image will return!
dont ask me what this does as i have no clue, it might have the same error after you switch off the cam but just follow the same method and it will show images. or if your not happy giving your camera a slap then speak to JVC or any camera repair centre.
heres then link where i found this solution

Only the audio is recording, NO VIDEO, onto the hard drive. The JVC reads, "Lens Cap" even when the lens cap has been removed. Flip out screen is black. Only shows record settings; Battery life,...


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

It's definitely an internal problem in your camera and it sounds like you don't have any warranty after 5 years. I don't have a step-by-step help guide for you since I don't know about this camcorder but in my opinion, if the camcorder is really that good, it's worth the repairs. Though HD camcorders are getting cheaper these days...

Cannot record


if the lens cap auto closes, when it is on, try to tap slowly near the lens, very gently, and check again....repeat several times, it should work. the other options are taking it to qualified service tech, just beacuse its has very fine gears.....try it, reason for tapping is, the switch indicator is stuck, and gives wrong signal...dust paritcals could be the reason for that..

My jvc gz-mg57ek 30gb hd eviro camera blank screen


i have the same problem, from what i have been able to find out is that the CCD chip has either burned out, or become damaged in someway, the later models of our camera can get this problem fixed for free but sadly the offer does not extend as far as us, comet will charge £95 to fix our problem and jessops will send it off to HQ for £25 before giving us a price for fixing (manager estimated around £100) i think its going to be cheaper to abandon the camera and upgrade to a newer model as sad as this is. if you know of anywhere that will repair for cheeper please message me back.

if the fault does not repair after tapping camera after switching on , its best to show to an expert repairer . This is a critical fault with the aperture of the camera getting stuck in closed position . Zoom lens has to be opened .. Maxx

JFC GZ-MC500 problem.


JVC GZ-MC500AH



The problem I am facing is,

it says the lens cap is there & remove it, though there is no lens cap.

This seems to me that something is wrong with shutter or there are some mechanical problem.



Both for VDO & Still - the problem is same.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem.



Thanks & Regards.

Blue blank screen


this sounds a lot like the infamous "lens cap" error, common with many models. check this out - http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t102431,p398108/JVC-GR-DF450-Mini-DV-Digital-Camcorder.aspx I can't figure out If this model is on the list, I'm guessing there should be more to the model name here. Anyway, if you contact them you might learn its a free repair. Good luck
