Is it possible that the brightness of the LCD was turned down?
You might want to try turning it full bright. There are directions in the instruction book on how to do this.
Next select the viewfinder to turn on when you pull it out. Close the LCD panel and pul out the VF and look thru it in doors first and see if the picture is normal, now go outside while looking in the VF and see if the picture slowly goes dark. If it does looking at it this way then it would indicate that the Iris is closing too much. Go back inside.
In the menu there is an option to reset everything back to factory settings. Sometimes it is possible to have accidentally changed a setting while you were in the menu. Go thru the menu and execute all of the pages that have a reset option. Then test the camera again. If the image goes away in bright light it is possible that the adjustment settings for the Iris have been corrupted and the camera will need to be brought into an authorized JVC service center that has DVC camera experience and they will be able to readjust the Iris. It could also mean there is some kind of malfunction. If the image stays visible in the VF then the LCD might have just aged and lost its intensity to where you are unable to see it outside anymore. The DV5000 is 4 or 5 years old now?

The lens opens and makes a ticking sound but light stay orange


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. thank u rate me!!!

You have damaged your lens. If the camera can not move the lens it goes through a built in diagnostics test and shuts down. Beyond repair as cost to replace is beyond the value of your camera.

Lcd problem!!!


The problem is the sensor thats right below the viewfinder. The sensor is made to turn the lcd off when you put your eye up to it . The sunlight is activating the sensor try shading it and it will be fine.

Canon Powershot A570IS Problem


I have seen the same problem with my A570 IS. When pointing to a window or in an outdoor environment the iris within the lens closes completely within ~3 steps (look at the lens when pointing to the window). Therefor it is not a LCD issue at all. The fact that you can still take a photo with a closed lens rather suggests that the iris controlling software is corrupt.This will most likely just require a firmware update.I hope Canon will soon provide the software online.

Taking a picture inside is dark. It need light. That why you have to take a picture daylight outside. Because it for outdoor. About indoor, it too dark.

Probably the ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camcorder is cracked or getting pinched somehow.
