Question about JVC GR-AXM710 Camcorder
Hi I have a JVC GR-AXM710 that plays back fine, but when put in record it shows a black screen through both the Vf and the flip-out screen. It records audio fine. I have seen many JVC and hitachi camcoders with this fault, it may be the CCD, but I suspect it is some of those wonderful smelly aluminum capacitors gone bad, as it was working perfectly when last used, but sat for a year or two, and those caps seem to go leaky if camera is used or not. Anyone with more camcoder experience who could maybe save me some time with specific caps to check, etc... I would appreciate it greatly. P.S. I also have an even older GR-AX5BKU with exact same fault. Thanks!
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.

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

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.
