Question about Video Cameras

JVC Model GR-D72U

The screen on my camcorder just stopped working. It just displays a black screen. I can't tell if it is recording or not, I tend to doubt it. I have gone through all the troubleshooting pages of the manual without any luck.

    the screen is black when i go to record. It gets slightly brighter when put up to the direct light. the record function works but there is no recording. The screen seems fine when I go to the playback mode of previous recorded material.

I have a JVC Gr-D72U camera and I am getting the message to remove lens cap and the LCD screen is black, but the cap it off. Can you help?


HI,
This problem is mostly a faulty pick up device.
unless you have some electronics skill, this repair should be left to a professional repairman.
hope this helps.

Cannot record due to a black screen


OK, that means you can see clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes and camcorder just wont give you live view to record any more.
If its true then it is known problem/ failure of ccd imager in your JVC GR-D33 camcorder.
JVC will repair it free of cost, click JVC CCD Imager Advisory for details.
Thanks.

JVC GR-D72U SCREEN READS ''UNIT IN SAFEGUARD MODE, ETC.). Also tells you to eject and re-insert taspe. Nothing helps. tonyramutis@aol.com


Something going on with the mechanism most likely.. It needs to be looked at, might need the mechanism replaced, or a more minor mech repair.

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.

No picture on my JVC GR-D72US


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...

See if your camcorder is listed on the JVC site for free repair...apparently this was a common problem.
