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.

This is a chronic bad soldering problem on the CCD. Send it to JVC for a $100 repair.

Black screen


Symptom shows its ccd imager chi failure problem and ccd imager chip will be replaced in your camcorder.
CCD Imager chip is an electronic part that converts an image into electronic signal for further process in camcorder circuit boards.
Take your camcorder to local camera repair shop for ccd imager replacement as it is not user level repair and requires qualified tech.

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.

Erasing the tape on a sony handycam vision please


Well the cheapest way is to go into record mode, cap the lens with the black lens cap and record a 'black' picture on the tape. This will erase all the pictures on the tape and leave you with a 'black' screen on the whole tape.

Lens Cap Error


You have a defective CCD imager - the part of the lens that receives the image. Will need to be replaced.

Display is black even after removing the lens cap


See my post of before. I just knocked the camera on the floor by mistake and it miraculously started working again after years. Shows it must be mechanical and not related to software.

The problem is with the ccd in the camera. Here in aust JVC have a free replacement policy at all JVC authorised repairers. The ccd was outsourced and is plain ****, but at least JVC recognised the prob. They have no warranty time limitations on this issue

JVC has acknowledged a fault on their side that will cause certain models to display the "lens cap" error, and they offer free repairs, your model is also on the list. Here's a link to the JVC site : http://www.jvcservice.com/service/custnoticecamcorder.asp?ReqType=CCD hope this helped ;]
