Question about JVC GR-DVM96U Camcorder
When I turn the camera on I get a message "lens cap" The lens cap is not on the camera, the message goes away and I get no image through the view finder or on the lcd monitor. I can still view video previously shot and menus etc.
It sounds like you might have a hardware failure on your camera. The viewfinder and the LCD are connected to the same circuitry and if there is a failure there, you will not be able to see what you are taping. The reazon you can still view any recorded program is because the playback circuitry is functional.
I would say that in some cases a loose wire or connector could be causing this failure but it could a solid hardware failure.
If you have some basic electronics knowledge, you might try to open the camera yourself and check for any loose wire or connections.

Try removeing the battery and then trying again,
The device might need a reset
but it sounds like a hardware side problem witch would need to get repaired.
if you still have warranty then that should save you.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD
monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the
viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,
and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
