NO picture - JVC GR D74

I have a JVC GR D74 digital Video camcorder, and i went to use it the other day, and the digital screen is black. There is no picture showing through the digital screen or the view finder. It is recording sound, but no picture, just black. It says that the lens cap is on, but it is not on. There is power and all the buttons work, just no picture is showing or recording. We have tried everything from removing the battery, the tape, changing the settings, nothing has worked. The camcorder is only 3 years old, and we have not had any problems to this point. It was not dropped or damaged in any way. Please help with any advise you can give for this problem. Thanks.

Firstly check if a/v mode is on or..out.If it is on out then your ccd image sensor is faulty.

Cannot record due to a black screen

OK, that means you can see clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes and camcorder just wont give you live view to record any more.
If its true then it is known problem/ failure of ccd imager in your JVC GR-D33 camcorder.
JVC will repair it free of cost, click JVC CCD Imager Advisory for details.

My JVC Camcorder's screen is black and won't record.

See if your camcorder is listed on the JVC site for free repair...apparently this was a common problem.
