problem on ccd assamble u have chaing that part...first open urcamera and remove lense unit ..then u can c back side of lensunit there i a small board..u remove that board from lens unit...and u can c the ccd assamble....
I too had this problem and as I had taken out an extended warranty I called the store I had purchased the camcorder from. I was told that this model JVC had a problem with the lens cap.They sent it off to JVC who fixed it without question
This problem is caused by a stuck aperture assembly. The problem has occured on multiple models made by JVC (GR-DF430u, GR-DF450U and GR-DF470U). You have to have some degree of technical aptitude in order to disassemble the unit and access the part causing the problem. The tiny motor that opens the aperture flaps is not able to overcome the sticky oil/grease that JVC unwisely used on this part. Therefore the flaps stay closed, and the camera sees no light when you remove the lens cap. This makes the camera think you haven't removed the lens cap, causing the "lens cap" error.
If you feel like you have the skill and you are careful, you can disassemble the unit and clean the part yourself. It takes longer to take the unit apart and put back together than it does to clean the sticky oil off the part.
If you contact me, I can send you a diagram of where the part is located that you need to access. This is not recommended for amateurs, as you can damage the unit and cause other problems if you aren't somewhat skilled in disassembly of electronics.
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.
