This message comes in two cases, either CCD Imager is defective and not providing Video Signal to camera circuit or lens cover is on in actual. If lens cover is off and error message still comes, means CCD Imager is bad and needs to be replaced. Please click JVC Customer Notification page for CCD Issue for details. Hope this info will help you.

If your camcorder is still under warranty, send it before it's to late. There is some kind of wide spread problem with the CCD Assembly on this line of JVC products. In particular with the GR-DxxU line.

From what I have read in the internet, the CCD Assembly is a Sony part and can be purchased for about $50. If you are handy with electronics, you could give it a go. This repair if successful, will probably not last for to long either.

I have the same problem with this camera and it's a shame that JVC is not doing anything about it. I read somewhere that there is a pending class action law suit against JVC on this line of products.

Sony has also released a statement with one of their camcorders, that they will fix the problem at no charge. Can't remember the link but it's on this site.

Hope this helps,
A. L.

My camcorder seems to think the lens cap cover is on even though it's not! as a result i get no picture in the lcd or viewfinder


There is 2 possibilities. One is defective CCD imager IC, which do not generating picture signal and 2nd is Lens Cover Switch, which is not funtioning properly.
Please check both of them.

When i look through the lens cap or side screen it is black, and tells me to keep putting the lens cap on


Check the manual ans the use of controls.
It is likely you have the camera set to the Upload image setting.

Looking through the problems posted for all jvc camcorders it became obvious that mine was CCD problem, encountered by many others. Also jvc are fixing this for free, so if you have this problem go to a jvc sevice centre and you should have no problems. Suffice to say this site was invaluable in diagnosing my problem, and you have been recommended to my friends. Thankyou, I'll be back.
