I had the same problem and after reading others' posts, determined that JVC is aware of this issue and will fix it for free.  See:

Apparently this same problem exists on many different models. I have a JVC grd72u. I called JVC @ 800-252-5722. I selected the "Corrective Action Program" prompt from the automated attendent. I spoke to a customer service rep. They are aware of the problem and are fixing it for free, but only until 12/31/07. I suggest you call ASAP and get your name in the computer. If the problem is something besides the CCD sensor, they will call you with the estimate to repair.

Assuming you don't see any video through the viewfinder, it could be that the CCD has died on that camcorder. It happens, though not frequently.

If the video though the viewfinder is clear, there might be some sensor on the lens ring to indicate a lens cap, or an automatic lens cap not properly disengaging when put in record mode.

I'm sorry to disagree, but the usual problem with this symptom is a stuck iris in the lens assembly. With the camera on, try gently tapping the side of the lens area. The iris may be jarred loose. If not, then the camera needs to be opened and the iris assembly rebuilt. This is not a job for the novice. Expect a repair bill in the $150 range. There should be no parts required.

Hi

When this error again shows up try pressing the reset button for 10 seconds to reset the camcoder. It will be a small black button, which can be pressed using a ball pen or pin.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa if found useful and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

My JVC GR - D290 says that the lens cap is on when the lens cap is off


Open and close it a few times. Maybe tap the side a little bit as the lens cap switch may be sticking.

This is a very common problem on modern camcorders. The C.C.D. imager I.C. is defective. Depending on the part price and shop rates, expect around $90-$180 to have it repaired.

I have a camcorder JVC GR-DX67EK which worked fine and suddenly as I started it up the message "Lenz Cap" came up (as it normally does). But this time, it didn't clear up as I removed the Lenz...


Look for a switch somewhere around the lens that is probably stuch triggering the OSD to display "Lens Cap". You may have to depress nthe switch with a toothpick or paperclip. Look at the lens cap for something sticking out of it. That would be the actuator. Line that up and you should then find the switch.

Display is black even after removing the lens cap


See my post of before. I just knocked the camera on the floor by mistake and it miraculously started working again after years. Shows it must be mechanical and not related to software.

You have an internal "lens cap" that covers the lens to protect it when it is not in use. Look around the front of the camera, near the lens and you should find some sort of switch or lever that will open the lens cap.

No display in record mode on Samsung VP-D31


Sounds like you may have a problem in the auto iris curcuit or the auto settings was switched to manual and the lens is closed. Check first to see that the lens is setup in auto mode. If it is then the auto iris as i said before is bad or stuck closed unless the small caps in that curcuit went bad as they always do after a few years. Good Luck
