Apparently this same problem exists on many different models. I have a JVC grd72u. I called JVC @ 800-252-5722. I selected the "Corrective Action Program" prompt from the automated attendent. I spoke to a customer service rep. They are aware of the problem and are fixing it for free, but only until 12/31/07. I suggest you call ASAP and get your name in the computer. If the problem is something besides the CCD sensor, they will call you with the estimate to repair.

My JVC GR-D53 has not been used for about 6 months and when I charged it up and switched it on, I have the LENS CAP message flashing on the LCD display (and also the viewfinder when close the LCD screen). I cannot get a picture on either the screen or the viewfinder, but the small icons appear on the screen; date/time, battery strength etc. The camcorder plays video footage on the tapes without any problems. Any suggestions as I do need it for saturday 26th January 2008.

No Prob...I had the same problem with my GR-D72U. There is a defect in the CCD
image sensor. JVC will fix it for FREE! All it will cost you is shipping it to
them. Go to http://www.jvcservice.com/service/CustNoticeCamcorder.asp?PgReq=DspDtaDtl&MdlNbr=GR-D72US&Pgm=CCD
, download the rapair request... Send it off to your nearest service center and
they ship it back all fixed up in less than a week. I must tell you though, you
ONLY have until Dec. 31 2008 to do this. Not only did they fix mine, they
cleaned the heads but also buffed out a scratch. After you get yours fixed, post
as many helps as you can to others.
