Re: jvc camcorder moel # gr-d22u

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.

LENS CAP my camera is JVC, so When I'm online writing comes LENS CAP

Lens Cap message appears due to failure of ccd imager chip in camcorder and ccd imager chip need to be replaced to solve this issue.
Local camera repair shop will replace ccd imager chip because camera will take apart and soldering work is required.
Hope this will help.

The camcorder is on and the lens cap is removed there is still a message on the screen telling me to remove the lens cap. The screen remains black and only the words are visible

I have a JVC camcorder and have had it fixed 3 times for the same problem, I would suggest setting it up for service. I am glad I bought the extra warranty with mine.

This sounds like the CCD unit, or the connection between the lens unit and main board.
This is not something that most users can fix, as it will need parts. We can fix this for you, email

JVC GR-D270 MiniDV camera i dont see nothing to my lens

You have an internal "lens cap" that covers the lens to protect it when it is not in use. Look around the front of the camera, near the lens and you should find some sort of switch or lever that will open the lens cap.

Unable to see any picture on my JVC GR-D22U Camcorder. Please help*

I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let you use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap.

I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.

the ccd image sensor of your camera is the problem...i know it is free for replacing that sensor..that trouble is also in sony,canon,samsung and the other cameras brand cause the manufacturer of their sensor is only one company that why they recall it from the batch of 2002 to 2004..log on to the jvc costumer care to see all the detail...
