Does the camera playback a recorded tape that you can see on either a monitor or the LCD? If it does this proves the circuitry that makes the image is OK and it could be there is a problem with the CCD image device.
The Iris could be stuck closed from dirt or foreign matter in the optical block. The iris may have failed close.
The DF460 is a very good camera but the fact that it is a PAL model would make it hard for a shop to get it repaired. If you bought it in the US you should have a bill of sale and some kind of warranty card. Look at this and see if it say for export only. If it does someone sold you a no-no. If you bought it outside the US you will have to send it in to a JVC factory service center but I would called them first. My recommendation is to send it to the Atlanta, GA center. Go to www.JVC.com for their info. On this same site you can locate independant shops by putting it the model number (leave off the EK) and then you can call them to ask if they can work on PAL units. Many authorized centers take in PAL units. Try several zip code (Washington, DC would be the best zip because of the foreign agents, I mean foreign government workers there) I know the shops there will be happy to have you send it in to them and they will send it back to you. Look for a place named Strauss in DC. They are in business there since Lincoln.

No picture coming thru on lcd monitor or viewfinder. Lenscap-on advisory is displayed tho lenscap is not on. All camera setting dispays on monitor are OK. Screen just blank with power on auto or manual. On...


Further research indicates this is a common problem with JVC camcorders.
If it were a car there probably would have been a factory recall. I'm sending it to JVC Service,1500 Lakes Parkway,Lawrenceville,GA 30043 for repair.

LCD Screen failed; JVC GR-AX710 VHS-C Analog Camcorder


Many camcorders of different manufacturers have had CCD chip failures. Unfortunately, JVC only offered free repairs until Oct. 1, 2007. Canon still is honoring their service bulletin.

I would still contact JVC and try to get in on the free repairs if it were me.

Good Luck,

Gary
