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.

GR-D33U camcorder..... No display on LCD or viewfinder. Message states that lens cap is on but it is not. Tried all settings in menu....no luck! Any suggestions?


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.

Jvc GR-D33U


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.
