    It does not record; lens cap problem. I tried everything possible for over two weeks; also, took it to video shops in India. I was told that the lens is locked. I am in Sydney Australia and please tell me where to go to have it fixed. Thank you. Marzbani

    I have the same problem. The camera displays LENS CAP ON. I have to try several times until I can get video. It's frustrating.

    My JVC GR-D72 Mini DV could not show picture in auto and manual mode. The "Lens Cap" displayed when it is turned on even though the lens cap is not there.

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.

Your model is listed in the recall notice for JVC camcorders "remove lens cap" malfunction. This means you should get a free repair/replacement from JVC. Visit the following link - http://www.jvcservice.com/service/custnoticecamcorder.asp?ReqType=CCD Good luck

Canon Si5 Lens Error message. Have tried suggestions on line

Welcome to FixYa.

There where wo reasons why do you receive a "lens error".

1. CF card slot cover or battery cover opened with camera on
2 . CF card slot cover or battery cover opened while camera was recording to CF card

In this case you have to ensure that CF card cover and battery cover is closed while camera is turn on.

You also need to be careful not to block the camera lens when turning on. Lens will have issues while retracting if your hands or even small thing that will block the lens to retrack while in motion of turning on.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Attempted to burn a DVD

The lens for reader is a common issue and causes those errors. Get inside the box, take off the two screws on the DVD drive cover and (delicately) remove dust from the lens and surroundings. You should use delicate brushes and air blast, but I got some soft tissue and gently wiped.

I hope this helps

Message -Lens Cap text appearing

Hi There, You probably have a ccd problem. Up to October of 2007, JVC was replacing the ccd under warranty as they had a defective batch, ( all of them ). You could try to take to a jvc service depot and ask if warranty will still cover the repair. Are you in the USA or Canada? I can help you if in CDA.
Let me know, mr cicmo.
