Zoom the camcorder as far as it will go and shine a flashlight into the lens assy. Inside the lens assy there is an iris that works pretty much like our eyes (closes when it is too bright and opens up when it is darker). If all you see is black when you are shining the light into the lens, your iris is stuck closed (like having your eyes shut). If your iris appears to be open and functioning properly, then you likely have an issue with your CCD assy. The CCD assy is the what lets your lens talk to your main PCB.

Sometimes by zooming in all the way and shining a light into the lens, the camcorder will "unstick" itself. You will most likely need to have it repaired by an experienced technician.

Hope this has helped you.

When in video recording mode LCD screen and viewfinder are black when the lens cap is off.


It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

JVC GR-X5e camcorder, lens cap message. Does not show a picture.


It shows all menus, numbers and graphics on LCD, but seems like there's no picture coming through the lens. In both modes, video and still. It seems like it can not see anything as if the lens cap was on all the time.

Could this be a problem with sensor.. CCDs? Lens? Something else?

Lens cap


CCD Program for This Model - GR-D33US JVC has received reports that in certain circumstances, this model may, while in the camera mode, show no picture, a distorted picture and/or display “LENS CAP” even though the lens cap is removed. We have identified the probable cause as a failure of the CCD image sensor. Repairs of units exhibiting these problems as a result of a defect in the CCD image sensor will be made free of charge at JVC Factory Service Centers. Click this Repair Request link to download a Repair Request Form and find your nearest location.
Please call our Customer Care Center at (800) 858-6442 if you encounter any problems in obtaining a free repair. We apologize for any inconvenience and are appreciative of your understanding and support.
