Everytime I turn on my camera a lens error comes up on the display screen, even if the lens is off. It says I need to remove the lens cap every single time and I can no longer take pictures. I can only...


check to see if part of the lens cap snapped off into one of the connection areas or if the lens cap sensor is a button that is stuck down. If not, there may be damage to the electrical and or optical hardware behind the lens.

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.

If you're getting the 18-4489-957-000 error code, then give it a good tap on the corner where the lens cap is. A little tapping and the lens cover should pop closed. When you turn the camera on again it will probably work just fine.

I was just about to junk my camera when I googled the error code and found this very tip in another thread. It worked like a charm.
