    When I turn on camera to record with lense cap removed a blank screen is displayed and it asks for the lens cap to be removed? I can view previously recorded tapes OK.

Hi, the problem U have is the imager. reason: it is the way Sony made the imager... the gold lead wires would pop off the chip without warning. So go to JVC's site. they will fix it for free.

Lens cap?


Try removing the battery, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That may reset the lens cap sensor.

Lens cover not open and blank screen


the problem of your camera is the ccd image sensor...better go to the sony service center for replacing the image sensor..i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that is one of the model that sony recall produc and the cover not open error message is a poor contact of the lens cover switch...

Blue blank screen


this sounds a lot like the infamous "lens cap" error, common with many models. check this out - http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t102431,p398108/JVC-GR-DF450-Mini-DV-Digital-Camcorder.aspx I can't figure out If this model is on the list, I'm guessing there should be more to the model name here. Anyway, if you contact them you might learn its a free repair. Good luck
