    Although the model actually with me GR-D33 AG it has similar problem. Whenever, camcorder is switched ON, the LCD display and viewfinder display is blank with message "Remove Lens Cap". Further, no recording is possible. There no such problem at the time of playback.

GR-D33U camcorder..... No display on LCD or viewfinder. Message states that lens cap is on but it is not. Tried all settings in menu....no luck! Any suggestions?

Zoom the camcorder as far as it will go and shine a flashlight into the lens assy. Inside the lens assy there is an iris that works pretty much like our eyes (closes when it is too bright and opens up when it is darker). If all you see is black when you are shining the light into the lens, your iris is stuck closed (like having your eyes shut). If your iris appears to be open and functioning properly, then you likely have an issue with your CCD assy. The CCD assy is the what lets your lens talk to your main PCB.

Sometimes by zooming in all the way and shining a light into the lens, the camcorder will "unstick" itself. You will most likely need to have it repaired by an experienced technician.

Hope this has helped you.
