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.

I have a JVC digital video camera (Mini DV). the screen is all black, it can still record but only a black screen. it recoreds sound only. the screen tells me to take off the ens cap when it is already....


I want you to do this to confirm which part has a problem. Look at your camera lens directly face to face and observe those tiny shutter inside while switching on your camera. You must see the movement of those tiny shutter and even hear some clicking, if so, CCD replacement is needed. Sometimes those shutter stacked up and shows the same symptoms. Hope it helps

JVC GR-D270 MiniDV camera i dont see nothing to my lens


You have an internal "lens cap" that covers the lens to protect it when it is not in use. Look around the front of the camera, near the lens and you should find some sort of switch or lever that will open the lens cap.

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.

Blue blank screen


this sounds a lot like the infamous "lens cap" error, common with many models. check this out - http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t102431,p398108/JVC-GR-DF450-Mini-DV-Digital-Camcorder.aspx I can't figure out If this model is on the list, I'm guessing there should be more to the model name here. Anyway, if you contact them you might learn its a free repair. Good luck
