    Hi! I have a Sony CCD-TR805E with the same auto and manual focus problems: it does not focus at all, the focus motor does not turn at all. The focus motor has the coils OK (not interrupted) and is not stuck. In my camcorder there is no VC-126, but there is VC-103 that contains the focus motor driver (IC855). Which capacitors should be tested and/or replaced?
    Thanks in advace!

I have to send you its exploded view in pictures because its bit old model like 1996 and at that time service manuals were in paper form not in pdf format.
Here I can post up to 150k size picture which would be not good enough to see details.
And I have to scan concern pages to make pictures to send you through email.
Now its your turn to let me know are you ready to proceed...:)

    One more thing important, problem is not with lens mechanism.
    you just need to replace weak electrolytic capacitors in this camera.
    capacitor replacement needs high skills of solder work because camera board PCB can be damaged easily if novice do this job.

I cant seem to get the manual focus to work on my vx2000

Are you sliding the switch from "Auto" to "Man" first? The focus switch is located at about the mid-point of the camera, just forward of the flip out LCD. The focus ring is the larger of the two lens rings, the one farthest towards the front of the camera. The smaller ring behind that one is the zoom ring. Also, make sure something isn't inadvertently pressing down the "Push Auto" button immediately below the focus switch - that can force the camera to autofocus even if in "Man" (manual) focus mode. Hope that helps!

Camera seems to think that the lens cap is on, there is no image (and no the lens cap is not on)- jvc mini dv camcorder gr-d347u The message "Lens Cap" appears when the camera is turned on, there is no...

There are 2 possibilities for that symptoms in JVC GR-D347U camcorder is either aparture in lens mechanism is stuck and does not pass image towards CCD Imager OR ccd imager itself got bad.

Loose Manual Focusing Lens Device

There is a bulletin (E31529192) that describes your exact problem and recommends replacing the screws with new different screws to prevent this from happening again. The front section around the lens assembly is only held by 3 screws so access isn't a big deal, just be careful if you try this because there is a cable connected to the microphone that is easy to damage. The new screws are part number 3-056-559-01. Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Where is the reset button

I hope this helps. I have a PV-GS85 camera and the reset button for it is on the right hand side of the camera as you're holding it. It is a small recessed button just in front of (toward the lens) the Auto/Manual/Focus switch. It should say 'RESET' next to it. You may have to get something small to poke into it to reset it. Hope this helps you.
