Lens cap fault on JVC GR-D72

Before or after turning my JVC camcoder on and removing the lens cap, the LCD screen is black with the 'lens cap' message on the screen, even though the lens cap it removed. Usually, the screen can see what teh camera is pointing to once the lens cap is removed, but is seems to think the lens cap is permenantly on. I seem to have all other functions and features on teh screen but no picture. I have tried everyhing. Any suggustions? Please help! regards....Tony

    I cant believe I just found out about this free repair from JVC. I have the JVC GR-D72U. It's been sitting in my drawer for about a year and a half because of the "lens cap" error message. Do you know who to call at JVC to get some information regarding this free repair solution.

This is a known problem with this model. The cause has been identified by JVC as a failure of the CCD image sensor. Until October 1, 2007, repairs of units exhibiting these problems will be made free of charge at JVC Factory Service Centers.

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.

When I turn on the digital video camera (JVC GR-D65OU) it says "Remove lens cap" but the lens cap is off, please help


Hi

When this error again shows up try pressing the reset button for 10 seconds to reset the camcoder. It will be a small black button, which can be pressed using a ball pen or pin.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa if found useful and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

LENS CAP WARNING


JVC camcorder no picture on screen remove lens cap and unable to record problem is down to a faulty batch of ccd image sensors (thousands that Sony supplied) and if you phone the JVC servce centre (0845 3108000) and explain the problems you are experiencing its a good chance they will repair it free depending on model (I know because I have done just that and JVC are paying for it to be collected, repaired and returned totally free of charge, and mine was purchased in 2004. What have you got to lose the price of a phone call or about £70 to £90 to have it repaired yourself
Good luck syrups6

No Picture in record


Oh yes it could be the pan caps as we call them as where if left long enough will distroy the PCB!! Anther common trouble with these jvcs as well with some other brands of camcorders is a stuck iris assy as oil or dust gets on them and stops it from opening at power up But I suspect the cap problem and Im sorry to say is most likely cost prohibited because you may have to replace the entire PCB if its even still available.. Oh the uto iris i9s built deep inside the lens assy and the lens has to be taken off the camcoder body abd disassembled and take a bit of time to do. Good Luck
