Its known issue of bad CCD imager in JVC camcorders and JVC offers free repair for few models. Click JVC Free CCD Repair for details.
GR-D50 is not in list so you may be charged for its repair or ask JVC for free repair.
Need further help, let me know.

This could be two things:

2. Lens unit connection to main pcb has failed

My jvc gz-mg57ek 30gb hd eviro camera blank screen


i have the same problem, from what i have been able to find out is that the CCD chip has either burned out, or become damaged in someway, the later models of our camera can get this problem fixed for free but sadly the offer does not extend as far as us, comet will charge £95 to fix our problem and jessops will send it off to HQ for £25 before giving us a price for fixing (manager estimated around £100) i think its going to be cheaper to abandon the camera and upgrade to a newer model as sad as this is. if you know of anywhere that will repair for cheeper please message me back.

I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER!
this is a strange method so bare with me (found the solution on another site)
turn on the camera and then hold it upside down then for want of a better word "tap" the camera near the lens (i tapped the mic in front of the flash) and hey presto your image will return!
dont ask me what this does as i have no clue, it might have the same error after you switch off the cam but just follow the same method and it will show images. or if your not happy giving your camera a slap then speak to JVC or any camera repair centre.
heres then link where i found this solution

Lens cap?


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

Blue blank screen


this sounds a lot like the infamous "lens cap" error, common with many models. check this out - http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t102431,p398108/JVC-GR-DF450-Mini-DV-Digital-Camcorder.aspx I can't figure out If this model is on the list, I'm guessing there should be more to the model name here. Anyway, if you contact them you might learn its a free repair. Good luck
