    It says lens cap is still on when it isn't. If I re-play something, I don't have problems viewing it, but when I attempt to record, it won't let me.

My JVC GR - D290 says that the lens cap is on when the lens cap is off


Open and close it a few times. Maybe tap the side a little bit as the lens cap switch may be sticking.

CANON XL LENS CAP FOR 16X ZOOM LENS


According to its specifications, this lens can use a 72mm filter. So you should be able to get the type lens cap that clips into a 72mm filter to work. Such as the one shown here. I'd recommend you go to a local camera store and try one to make sure it works.

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.

Lens cap?


Try removing the battery, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That may reset the lens cap sensor.

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.

If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.

Aiptek IS DV 2 cam


I've got one of these (the IS-DV2+ version) and what I use for a lens cap is actually a bottle cap from bottled water. It snaps right on and doesn't come off unless I take it off. :) You could try that. You'll have to experiment to find the right size bottle cap.

As far as I know there's no lens cap available for this camera from Aiptek--they started including lens caps with some more recent models, but apparently didn't feel it was necessary with many of their cameras.

Lens cap


There may be a microswitch that detects the cap that's stuck. Take it to your dealer first, then try calling JVC for support.
