When in video recording mode LCD screen and viewfinder are black when the lens cap is off.

It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

I have a GR-D53EK but cannot see a picture

if it's changing when you move the LC it's propably that responsable is the flex wire connecting LCD with camcorder. I bought it in the repair shop and did it by miself. save a lot of money.
Good luck

its true that normally you don't need to download the driver, however when it does pop up, i'd say go here and just download the zip file for the drivers.

Blur in viewfinder

Hi, i had the same problem and was suggested i visited the JVC website, this could be the manufacturers error reported on their web site. Failure of the CCD image sensor. Check JVC UK web site, support centre, if your camcorder has the problems listed, until 01/10/07 they will cover repairs. Mine now works ok. Hope this helps

No picture JVC GR-DF430US

Could easily be one of those picofuse which is a miniature fuse. Looks more like a small metal film resistor, except without the coloured bands. But SMD in Camcorders has now got so damm small, you cannot use a hot air tool without the risk of other parts moving, or loosing.. basically a Digital Camcorder has all the electronics of a PC mother board, shrunk into a small hand device, and also included a tape loading mechanism and a lens unit.. So I would suggest that you will get in touch with the JVC service agent, and see if they can extend the warranty, sometimes they will cover the Parts , but you will have to cover the labour..
