Open Question

JVC GZ-MC500 - it says remove lens cap even when there is no cap

RE : JVC GZ-MC500AH

The problem I am facing is,
it says the lens cap is there & remove it, though there is no lens cap.
This seems to me that something is wrong with shutter or there are some mechanical problem.

Both for VDO & Still - the problem is same.
Can anyone help me to solve this problem.

Thanks & Regards.

    I have the same problem. Have tried resetting the camera using the reset button, resorting to factory default settings, and everything else suggested in the user's manual, but nothing works. Any other ideas?

I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER!
this is a strange method so bare with me (found the solution on another site)
turn on the camera and then hold it upside down then for want of a better word "tap" the camera near the lens (i tapped the mic in front of the flash) and hey presto your image will return!
dont ask me what this does as i have no clue, it might have the same error after you switch off the cam but just follow the same method and it will show images. or if your not happy giving your camera a slap then speak to JVC or any camera repair centre.
heres then link where i found this solution

Jvc everio GZ-MC500 does not recognize High capacity SD


Beyond 2GB SD Card this model can not support. Why? because this model carries the logo SD, where as 2gb is the maximum, although there are some companies manufacturing SD with the capacity of more 2 GB but this is illegal(not standard for SD) do not conform with SD. New models can support HCSD (High Capacity SD) as far as 32GB can be found in the market. Hope this helps

JVC GZ-MC 500 NO DISPLAY


if the fault does not repair after tapping camera after switching on , its best to show to an expert repairer . This is a critical fault with the aperture of the camera getting stuck in closed position . Zoom lens has to be opened .. Maxx
