Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

LCD side screen is barely visable.

My camera is about 4 years old, and has barely been used, but now all of a sudden, when you open the side screen, you can barely see anything. It's like the LCD or crystal is blown or something. If I take it in to where I bought it from they are going to charge me $30 just to drop it off, plus pay for shipping for them to ship it out, then I have to sign an agreement to pay up to $150 dollars before they will call me to let me know what is wrong and how much it is going to cost to fix. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: LCD screen powers up but is bright white

The User Manual for your model can be downloaded in .pdf form at this URL: --> The adjustment instructions are clear enough in the manual that you could possibly push the right buttons to adjust the brightness down without being able to read the LCD screen while doing so. It's certainly worth your time to give it a try! Concerning your question about buying an LCD screen and replacing it yourself; you shouldn't do that. The fact that the LCD screen is all white demonstrates the fact it IS actually working. It's just being told by the camera to display all "white", so the problem is somewhere else in the camera. If trying to adjust the brightness down doesn't work for you, then your best option is likely going to be sending the camera to JVC for repair. Not knowing which part to replace could end up making the repair more costly for you if you try to do it yourself. Here is the URL for the JVC service center locater, which can find the repair location nearest to you: Hope this helps. ;)

SOURCE: LCD Screen failed; JVC GR-AX710 VHS-C Analog Camcorder

Many camcorders of different manufacturers have had CCD chip failures. Unfortunately, JVC only offered free repairs until Oct. 1, 2007. Canon still is honoring their service bulletin.

I would still contact JVC and try to get in on the free repairs if it were me.

Good Luck,

We were watching our 42" widescreen TV (about 4 years old) and it suddenly popped and the screen faded to where we can barely see the picture. Can it be fixed or new TV?

The internal capacitors are blown out. About $250 repair. Or you can get service manual, soldering iron, VOM meter. and try and repair it yourself. Probably about $50-$100 in parts

Black-n-purple viewing screen my fuji s700 (s7000) camera

Sounds like a bad LCD as I had a similar experience with a different brand. The part itself is probably not very cheap... but if you have $120 you could get the same camera, referbished.
