This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

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.
