Question about JVC GR-D290 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, I have a GR-D290 camcorder of about 3 years old. Last week it has developed some kind of fault where the image won't settle on its brightness (if that makes sense). It flickers dark and bright, usually in bright conditions. Sometimes it works fine in low light but as soon as i point it at something bright it starts again. Other times I turn it on and the picture is very dark and won't react when pointed at anything. Once or twice it said remove lens cap but not every time. I know JVC are doing free repairs on some models for similar problems but my camera isn't one of the listed eligible models. Is this a CCD fault and if so, any ideas what it might cost to repair or if it can be done easily? Thanks
This is a CCD problem (I deal with it every day!). Take the camera to a JVC authorized service along with the purchase documents! You might get it replaced for free or a small fee.

The Iris in the optical block is stuck. Need new optical block. Temp fix turn unit upside down and tap bottom this will loosen the iris for a little time.
