Sounds like your iris is shut. Try giving the camera a good smack with the palm of your hand near the lens. That should free up the iris. Can you view previously recorded tapes??? If so your video board might be bad. Hope this helps.

Further research indicates this is a common problem with JVC camcorders.
If it were a car there probably would have been a factory recall. I'm sending it to JVC Service,1500 Lakes Parkway,Lawrenceville,GA 30043 for repair.

Viewfinder broken


Is the viewfinder set to auto?

Auto turns it on or off when the LCD is flipped out to save energy. Look through your menus for this setting. If there's some problem the camera is having recognizing when the LCD is flipped out or not, this would solve not being able to use the eyepiece.

LCD SCREEN


Do you have a picture showing in the viewfinder when the LCD is closed? If not, it's a bad CCD and I believe Canon will fix that for free if you call customer service.
