Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D93 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a jvc camcorder model gr-d32u and it is always saying the lens cap is on when it isnt. it plays back the tapes fine, it just wont show anything to record
The possible problem is the ccd image sensor....log on to the jvc costumer service may be the model of your camera is one of the recall product...due to the production error of the imager...

No Prob...I had the same problem with my GR-D72U. There is a defect in the CCD
image sensor. JVC will fix it for FREE! All it will cost you is shipping it to
them. Go to http://www.jvcservice.com/service/CustNoticeCamcorder.asp?PgReq=DspDtaDtl&MdlNbr=GR-D72US&Pgm=CCD
, download the rapair request... Send it off to your nearest service center and
they ship it back all fixed up in less than a week. I must tell you though, you
ONLY have until Dec. 31 2008 to do this. Not only did they fix mine, they
cleaned the heads but also buffed out a scratch. After you get yours fixed, post
as many helps as you can to others.

Apparently this same problem exists on many different models. I have a JVC grd72u. I called JVC @ 800-252-5722. I selected the "Corrective Action Program" prompt from the automated attendent. I spoke to a customer service rep. They are aware of the problem and are fixing it for free, but only until 12/31/07. I suggest you call ASAP and get your name in the computer. If the problem is something besides the CCD sensor, they will call you with the estimate to repair.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
