This normally happens when the light sensor inside the lens has burned out. Most often this occurs when the unit was left on and running with the lens cap on and the light sensor works itself to death.

It is not a user-replaceable part. Both myself and a friend had to return the unit for warranty service. His was in warranty, I had to pay to purchase an extended warranty (About $115 for 1 year) and we shipped in to them and received it back within a few weeks each. No problems since (but I make sure the unit is off every time so it doesn't happen again!)

It's definitely an internal problem in your camera and it sounds like you don't have any warranty after 5 years. I don't have a step-by-step help guide for you since I don't know about this camcorder but in my opinion, if the camcorder is really that good, it's worth the repairs. Though HD camcorders are getting cheaper these days...

I need Download Software Lost the original disc.


You can just use windows explorer to transfer video and rename the mod to avi to view it. You can use Xillisoft video converter to make them into divx or whatever format you need. Camstasia software is good for editing, much better than any of the software that comes with the camera.

LENS CAP WARNING


JVC camcorder no picture on screen remove lens cap and unable to record problem is down to a faulty batch of ccd image sensors (thousands that Sony supplied) and if you phone the JVC servce centre (0845 3108000) and explain the problems you are experiencing its a good chance they will repair it free depending on model (I know because I have done just that and JVC are paying for it to be collected, repaired and returned totally free of charge, and mine was purchased in 2004. What have you got to lose the price of a phone call or about £70 to £90 to have it repaired yourself
Good luck syrups6

I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER!
this is a strange method so bare with me (found the solution on another site)
turn on the camera and then hold it upside down then for want of a better word "tap" the camera near the lens (i tapped the mic in front of the flash) and hey presto your image will return!
dont ask me what this does as i have no clue, it might have the same error after you switch off the cam but just follow the same method and it will show images. or if your not happy giving your camera a slap then speak to JVC or any camera repair centre.
heres then link where i found this solution

JVC Everio GZ-MG130 Won't Come On


Check the lens cap.

Check if it is in the proper mode. Some JVC have an eyepiece that when pulled out allows you to view through the eyepiece but not on the screen.

Try downloading the contents of the hard drive to your computer.

Here are links that can give you details on how to check these things.

Let me know if you have any questions.

JVC has acknowledged a fault on their side that will cause certain models to display the "lens cap" error, and they offer free repairs, unfortunately your model isn't on the list. You still might get some consideration, since there are plenty of models from the GR-D series listed. Here's a link to the JVC site : http://www.jvc.com/support/notification/index.jsp?pageID=2 You're not alone though, it's a very common problem also with models that are not listed by JVC. I only heard of complaints by people that JVC refused to help, but it won't hurt trying, maybe they'll give in to public pressure eventually. Good luck
