    I have exactly that, it says the lens cap is on and it's not.  Most times it suddenly starts working with no obvious reason why.

No Prob...I had the same problem with my GR-D72U. There is a defect in the CCD image sensor. JVC will fix it for FREE! All it will cost you is shipping it to them. Go to http://www.jvcservice.com/service/CustNoticeCamcorder.asp?PgReq=DspDtaDtl&MdlNbr=GR-D72US&Pgm=CCD , download the rapair request... Send it off to your nearest service center and they ship it back all fixed up in less than a week. I must tell you though, you ONLY have until Dec. 31 2008 to do this. Not only did they fix mine, they cleaned the heads but also buffed out a scratch. After you get yours fixed, post as many helps as you can to others.

I had the same problem. There is a part that is made by sony, aparantly, and it is faulty and is covered under warranty. I am told the warranty does not run out. So I suggest you contact your nearest JVC repairer.

My camcorder when you turn it on reads "lens cap" and will not record it thinks the lens cap is on what do i need to do to fix this. thanks Ric


hi,

normally on some cam's there is a small switch like device where the cap fits, if this switch is stuck or something has got stuck, then the signal it gives would be as lens cap.. so i suggest you chk this first.

any way if you can give the brand & model name then it would be much more helpfull.

Lens cap?


Try removing the battery, wait 30 seconds, and plug it back in. That may reset the lens cap sensor.
