Ive had the camcorder only2 years now and recently ive had white lines scrolling up the screen whilst recording. they are also there when the footage is played back. then last week the screen both through viewfinder and flip screen, is black with more white lines and says the lens cap is on when it isnt. so now i cant record anything.but it will let me play back previous footage taped on the screen with no problem.any ideas what it could be and who i can trust to repair it please without lots of expense?thanks.

Re: JVC GR-DX25EK camcorder
JVC has issued a notice on many models that bring up a "lens cap" error. However, the GR-DX25EK is not included. The model you have posted on its page(GR-DX95) is though.
This problem is still very common with models that aren't on the said list, given that and the fact that your model is from the same series, you might get some consideration from JVC. No harm in trying.
The listed models get a free repair.
Heres a link to the notice from JVC:

OK, that means you can see clear picture in playback of old recorded tapes and camcorder just wont give you live view to record any more. If its true then it is known problem/ failure of ccd imager in your JVC GR-D33 camcorder. JVC will repair it free of cost, click JVC CCD Imager Advisory for details. Thanks.
some contact info for JVC.

being a fact that JVC camcorders are very trouble prone, it would probably be a better ideal & cheaper to buy a new camcorder.
for your next camcorder purchase, i would stay away from anything made by JVC.
the symptom is caused by a dirty video head. sometimes cleaning tape cannot do all the jobs, especially when the dirt is so much that any cleaning tape cannot remove it.
open the cover, use a clean white paper dampened with a little alcohol. use your finger on the paper and gradually move the head drum back and forth. donot move the paper up or down. just move the drum slowly. good luck!
