JVC camcorder with blurred images

One day I noticed that even though my camera was on automatic, the focus was off and the images were blurry. If I zoom in to a certain point it would be clear again but other than that it's just blurred. Did something go wrong with my settings or is my camera preparing for it's grave. Is there a way to troubleshoot this problem?

Re: JVC camcorder with blurred images

You could try using the focus button on the left side of your camera. Because I have the same camera and that happened to me before but if you just push the focus button a few times it show work.

Re: JVC camcorder with blurred images

It could be an issue with the dioptre adjustment: 1 Set the Power Switch to ?A? or ?M? while pressing down the Lock Button located on the switch. 2 Make sure the LCD monitor is closed and locked. Pull out the viewfinder fully and adjust it manually for best viewability. So slide the rubber eyecup toward you. 3 Turn the Dioptre Adjustment Control until the indications in the viewfinder are clearly focused. The control is a litttle knob on the sied of eye-piece. While looking through the viewfinder, turn the knob until it is focused. Hope this helps. NewMediaMan

When I turn the camcorder on the "lens cap" reminder comes on the screen even though i'ts off. After that the screen is blurry and won't come into focus.

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

JVC Digital Camera focus

Did it work before? If so then it sounds like the focus motor/screw jack has failed and needs replacing. With some JVCs you can replace the whole lens system and a new one will re-calibrate itself, but I'd have to check on this model.

JVC Picuture gets blurry

The ccd block is starting to fail. Thats the chip thats the eye of the camcorder at the back of the lense assy. Its mounted on a small circuit board. You can find the chip at Its just a matter of dissassembling the camcorder and removing the chip from the board and soldering another onto it taking care not to over heat the chip. You do need good soldering skills.

No picture on my JVC GR-D72US

the ccd image sensor of your camera is the problem...i know it is free for replacing that sensor..that trouble is also in sony,canon,samsung and the other cameras brand cause the manufacturer of their sensor is only one company that why they recall it from the batch of 2002 to 2004..log on to the jvc costumer care to see all the detail...

Pic. blur

Most Samsung camera has that problem when it gets a year or more usage. The lens filter is already defective, it's a factory defect that the company must correct! It has too small lens that when exposed to moisture gwill become blurry permanently. Samsung should replace that parts free of charge!! They should recall these models and correct that fault.. [:0(
