Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Camcorder screen is grey lines, no picture coming through

It has said "lens cap" when the lens cap is already off. You can't see your subjects through either of the viewfinder because all you see is a blackish grey screen with lines on it. What do I do to fix this? thanks! MY MODEL IS JVC GR-D90U.

Re: camcorder screen is grey lines, no picture coming...

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.

This is a very common problem on modern camcorders. The C.C.D. imager I.C. is defective. Depending on the part price and shop rates, expect around $90-$180 to have it repaired.

Grey lines during playback.

Camcorder video head required cleaning because gray lines come in playback when video head got clogged/ dirty.
Put video head cleaning tape and playback it as per instructions.

JVC GR-X5e camcorder, lens cap message. Does not show a picture.

It shows all menus, numbers and graphics on LCD, but seems like there's no picture coming through the lens. In both modes, video and still. It seems like it can not see anything as if the lens cap was on all the time.

Could this be a problem with sensor.. CCDs? Lens? Something else?
