Keep getting a lens on message

We keep getting a message saying that the lens cover is on, and it's not. The screen is gray, and nothing I'm doing is working. We are however, able to see the video that we've taken before.

This is a well known CCD issue which JVC will fix for no charge. I just had my camcorder fixed last month for the same issue.

Lens screen stuck open and no image on LCD view screen.


It is jamming, the only really fix is to have it repaired, that costs a lot and it is sometimes better to just replace the camera.

Message in view finder says the lens cover is not open. It is open but I can't make the message go away.


There is most likely a failed component in the lens cover detection circuitry. This can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

JVC GR-D270 MiniDV camera i dont see nothing to my lens


You have an internal "lens cap" that covers the lens to protect it when it is not in use. Look around the front of the camera, near the lens and you should find some sort of switch or lever that will open the lens cap.

RIPED OFF BY BROADWAY PHOTO


Unit may have dust or contaminates built up on optical pickup. If you can reach the lens, try to very gently clean the pickup lens with a Q-tip. It is possible the unit has a defective turntable motor in which case you will have to have it replaced

"Lens cover not open" message


There is a switch sensor which will detect if the switch is open. Try switching rapidly a couple of times, as dust must be lodged.
