    I am getting a message Remove the Lens CAP? and I can not see anything via the viewfinder or LCD screen, what is the answer, throw it away and never buy another JVC product as I have had it for over a year now? I have not taken it anywhere yet was hoping to resolve via troubleshooting online?

    The camera says Lense Cap is on, but it isn't and I cannot see anything through the view finder or on the screen. I can't find my user manual for it so I'm not sure what to do. During playback, it has recorded the sound, but no picture. Can anyone recommend any action to take (aside from throwing it away and never buying JVC again) please??

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 , 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.

This is a common defect with the CCD, this page says JVC has a free repair program. Note the page is specific to Germany, and says the program runs until June 30 this year; check with your regional JVC representatives.

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