Question about JVC GR-D20EK Camcorder
When i turn on the camcorder it says remove lens cap but i have already removed it
Sounds like you have a broken Vcc (Capture chip) This fault is not user repairable, Check with your manufacturer if this item is within warranty, if so then the manufacturer should fix this for free, if not then you will need to have this serviced by a Jvc Service partner.

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.

Don`t bother to contact the JVC support. They will tell you that free support has expired in Dec 2009. I have the same problem to with CCD which is dead for good. Best solution is to buy another one from ebay . It is only 36 or 40 euros maximum (including shipping) and you can fix your self if you have enough knowledge or you can ask a friend for help to replace that CCD. It is not so complicated to replace, but you have to know basics of electronic devices. Good lock.
