Question about JVC GR-D295 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

Dead LCD screen?

I received my camera last christmas as a gift, and have had no problems with it up until this point. out of the blue, the LCD screen has stopped working. I called JVC, bought a head cleaner per their advice, and still, the screen won't work. however, i can get audio when playinng a tape, just no picture. i have tried both the viewfinder pulled out, as well as in, and been through all my settings. i know it's under warranty, but it does't cover labor, and i don't want to shell out $65 bucks for them just to look at it, and then wait around another 3-6 weeks to get it back. any suggestions?

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 , 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.

Hi, You need to use 4 pin firewire cable to connect to the PC. Switch on the cam. Open Windows Movie Maker and import the video from device.

Hi tlaufer ,
              According to the symptom this problem is related to the VIDEO HEAD, As you earlier try to clean the head but no results, Please open the cassette compartment of your camera (as when you insert the cassette in it) for 30 mins (remains open cassette compartment) Actueally some time due to moisture head get durt.
After 30 mins insert the cassette and play it. Hope it will start work again fine.
      But if no result from the said procedure then there must be a damadge of point of the head, in this condition you have to replace the VIDEO HEAD assembly.
Thanks for using fixya.

My camera's monitor/screen is black with no picture

My AIPTEK 1080p was powering on but the screen was turning off within one second of turning the unit on. I verified that the camera was still working and just the output onto the screen failed. I was able to resolve this by hooking the camcorder up to the TV and viewing the menus on the TV and then turning the camcorder off with the power button. I think this problem happened because I didn't do a "clean" shutdown the last time I had my aiptek hooked up to the TV. It is now working perfectly!

Dark screen- No images- some shadows horizontally

If you get a blank LCD, dimly lightened by a whitish back light, then the LCD display eis either faulty, badly connected, or the ribbon connector to LCD is defective.
The camera must be taken apart, ribbon cable tested, and eventually replaced and adjusted.
If all contacts on ribbon cable return continuity (cable is fine), then LCD is faulty, and must be replaced.
Althought the job is not too difficult, an user without experience may damage the camera in attempting this repair.
My first suggestion is always taking the unit to a camera shop.

Display screen not working.

its the video ribbon probably inside the lcd screen it is fastened with blck electrical tape not very secure so in storage probably lost its tackyness and came loose everytime you open the door it pulls from its connector and as you close it it goes back in.
