My JVC camcorder keeps saying lens cap is on and it wont view any image just plain black. I have had it for about five years first time anything like this has happened. I think it might have been dropped...


That sounds like the shutter is stuck closed. Unless you're highly technical, if will most likely require servicing. Get an estimate first, the repair cost can be worth more than the camera.

Does not record in doors or in low light. very dark display


It sounds like you may have the the camera in manual mode or that the Iris may be turned down. I am not sure if you model has an Iris control so make sure it is not in manual mode.

Cannot record


if the lens cap auto closes, when it is on, try to tap slowly near the lens, very gently, and check again....repeat several times, it should work. the other options are taking it to qualified service tech, just beacuse its has very fine gears.....try it, reason for tapping is, the switch indicator is stuck, and gives wrong signal...dust paritcals could be the reason for that..

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.

Dropped camcorder


When you dropped the camera you ended up jamming the iris closed. There may be additional damage within the lens assembly. In order to repair the stuck iris, the optical lens assembly needs to be partially disassembled. This is not a project for the novice. This should be taken to a JVC authorized service center for a repair estimate. The estimate will cost about $50 or so.
