Question about JVC GR-DF430US Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I just bought this camcorder and when I power it up, I don't have any picture in my LCD or viewfinder. When I record I have sound, but no picture. I get a warning flash when I power up of "Lens Cap" even though the cap is off. I can see the time stamp on the LCD and Viewfinder, just no picture. Please help
Could easily be one of those picofuse which is a miniature fuse. Looks more like a small metal film resistor, except without the coloured bands. But SMD in Camcorders has now got so damm small, you cannot use a hot air tool without the risk of other parts moving, or loosing.. basically a Digital Camcorder has all the electronics of a PC mother board, shrunk into a small hand device, and also included a tape loading mechanism and a lens unit.. So I would suggest that you will get in touch with the JVC service agent, and see if they can extend the warranty, sometimes they will cover the Parts , but you will have to cover the labour..
