Question about JVC GR-D270US Mini DV Digital Camcorder
... whenever I open the LCD monitor to record now. I've used it a lot for over a year with no problem, and this started just a couple weeks ago. It takes about 10 seconds for the "Please Wait" message to go away, and so I'm often missing the shots I want. One thing I did for the first time a couple weeks ago, that I thought might be related, was using the "Copy" feature. I just discovered that I could freeze the tape and copy a still shot onto the memory card. I did quite a bit of that a couple weeks ago, and thought maybe having the "Copy" setting still turned "On" was causing it, but I've turned that back to "Off" and it still does it. I always use the adapter, so it's not a power problem. Would love any suggestions on how to resolve this. Thanks!
Actually, I got the solution on the phone with JVC -- it was to remove the memory card which was still inside. Thanks.

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD
monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the
viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,
and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
