My JVC GR - D290 says that the lens cap is on when the lens cap is off

Open and close it a few times. Maybe tap the side a little bit as the lens cap switch may be sticking.

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.
