Question about JVC Cybercam GR-DV500US Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When i point my camera to outside light , out doors my Lcd goes out , come back on when i come indoors, did not use to do that do have any ideas ?
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 most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
