JVC GR-DF430AA Mini DV camera isn't working

When i turn the camera on and prepare to film something, the skreen stays black and says that the lens cap is on, but it's not. Iv'e had the same problem before and I had it repaired for something like two hundred dollars and it worked for a short period before buggered up again and said that the lens cap is on, but again it's not. Any idais what the problem might be?

Re: JVC GR-DF430AA Mini DV camera isn't working

Seems to be a known problem with a report on JVC website: Might be fixed if within one year of warranty ending and you still have a receipt. Something to do with a faulty CCD unit which needs replacing.

Display is black even after removing the lens cap

See my post of before. I just knocked the camera on the floor by mistake and it miraculously started working again after years. Shows it must be mechanical and not related to software.

The problem is with the ccd in the camera. Here in aust JVC have a free replacement policy at all JVC authorised repairers. The ccd was outsourced and is plain ****, but at least JVC recognised the prob. They have no warranty time limitations on this issue

JVC digital video camera gr-d 71

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.

JVC has acknowledged a fault on their side that will cause certain models to display the "lens cap" error, and they offer free repairs, your model is also on the list. Here's a link to the JVC site : hope this helped ;]
