Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D72 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I am having a problem with the display on my camera. I get the message "lens cap on" even though it is not on. I also have a flashing manual focus adjustment indicator.
The lcd and the viewfinder both display a black image (no picture). The above happens in either manual or automatic mode.
Everything works fine in playback mode. However, in record mode, if I take a still, or record some tape footage, when I play it back, all I get is a black frame.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what the problem is, and how to resolve it?
How can I connect my camcorder to a security camera.

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...

No Prob...I had the same problem with my GR-D72U. There is a defect in the CCD image sensor. JVC will fix it for FREE! All it will cost you is shipping it to them. Go to http://www.jvcservice.com/service/CustNoticeCamcorder.asp?PgReq=DspDtaDtl&MdlNbr=GR-D72US&Pgm=CCD , download the rapair request... Send it off to your nearest service center and they ship it back all fixed up in less than a week. I must tell you though, you ONLY have until Dec. 31 2008 to do this. Not only did they fix mine, they cleaned the heads but also buffed out a scratch. After you get yours fixed, post as many helps as you can to others.
