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've just taken mine in for repair. JVC are still fixing them free which is a relief!
Try a different service centre or contact JVC direct perhaps??

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.

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.

Seems to be a known problem with a report on JVC website: http://www.jvc.co.uk/knowledge-list.php?id=4#0 Might be fixed if within one year of warranty ending and you still have a receipt. Something to do with a faulty CCD unit which needs replacing.
