Lens cap?


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

Lense Cap Error


This problem is caused by a stuck aperture assembly. The problem has occured on multiple models made by JVC (GR-DF430u, GR-DF450U and GR-DF470U). You have to have some degree of technical aptitude in order to disassemble the unit and access the part causing the problem. The tiny motor that opens the aperture flaps is not able to overcome the sticky oil/grease that JVC unwisely used on this part. Therefore the flaps stay closed, and the camera sees no light when you remove the lens cap. This makes the camera think you haven't removed the lens cap, causing the "lens cap" error.

If you feel like you have the skill and you are careful, you can disassemble the unit and clean the part yourself. It takes longer to take the unit apart and put back together than it does to clean the sticky oil off the part.

If you contact me, I can send you a diagram of where the part is located that you need to access. This is not recommended for amateurs, as you can damage the unit and cause other problems if you aren't somewhat skilled in disassembly of electronics.

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

No display in record mode on Samsung VP-D31


Sounds like you may have a problem in the auto iris curcuit or the auto settings was switched to manual and the lens is closed. Check first to see that the lens is setup in auto mode. If it is then the auto iris as i said before is bad or stuck closed unless the small caps in that curcuit went bad as they always do after a few years. Good Luck
