Lens cap warning

When I turn my camcorder on, I get the flashing message that the lens cap is on but it isnt. I have tried putting it back on and removing it but it does not work. Any suggestions?

Re: lens cap warning

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.

The problem with this camcorder is the ccd assy. The ccd ic has failed and is giving the error that you are getting. I hope this helps.

My Sony DCR DVD 108 has no image at all with or with out disc says lens cap may be closed but it isnt flashing E:61:11 top right hand side of touch screen plays previously recorded dvd fine but thats it.

You may have lost your image sensor.
  1. Take lens cap off.
  2. Look in lens make sure there is nothing on or blocking lens.
  3. Find bright room & see if image comes up.
  4. Make sure your in video record mode.
  5. If you have eyepiece lens look to make sure it is off. {Most cams will not let you use both at same time.}
  6. Still no image try recording on blank disk then play back see if image is recording.
If that does not work MSG back.

Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Blank Screen when trying to record

Hi, the problem U have is the imager. reason: it is the way Sony made the imager... the gold lead wires would pop off the chip without warning. So go to JVC's site. they will fix it for free.

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.
