    My TRV85 charges, LCD screen seems to work, but it will not record

    Same exact problem. Mine is several years old. Don't think warranty will apply.

    Can someone recommend a good (inexpensive) repair shop in the Orange County, CA area?

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.

Most common cause for this problem is defective CCD. the replacement of the same will rectify the problem. second can be iris not working due to friction or sticky blades. contact repair shop.

Camera turns "on", can read menus, etc, but, there is no image on LCD screen?


On page 8 of the basic operate manual you see the backside of the camera and there you find the display button. Try pressing that one several times, while in recording mode.

The led screen is black as is the video being recorded. Everything else seems to working. yes the lense cap is off. It as if no images are coming through the lense.


Hi,
First, Please confirm that if LCD is blank then can you see the images in view finder ? If not then the CCD IMAGER is faulty and if LCD is blank and you can see the image in view finder then then a Flexible board which connect the LCD with the main unit is broken, Please replace these parts according to the symptom. Moreover, for your ease pics are shown below of both parts with part number.

First pic is for CCD IMAGER
second pic is for flexible board.
Thanks

No image displays on screen or in view finder. Lense cap is open.

JVC GR-X5e camcorder, lens cap message. Does not show a picture.


It shows all menus, numbers and graphics on LCD, but seems like there's no picture coming through the lens. In both modes, video and still. It seems like it can not see anything as if the lens cap was on all the time.

Could this be a problem with sensor.. CCDs? Lens? Something else?
