Question about JVC Cybercam GR-D30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When i try to use the camera on record it shows a dark screen thru the view finder and sometimes says lens cap on.
How to solve this problem?

Does anyone know if the JVC digital video camera (model # GR-D3OU) is ABLE to receive a video input from vhs? This is a basic model that I bought on craig's list a while back but it has a av jack that has 3 cords that go out of it. Would love to know, thanks, Andy

No Prob...I had the same problem with my GR-D72U. There is a defect in the CCD
image sensor. JVC will fix it for FREE! All it will cost you is shipping it to
them. Go to http://www.jvcservice.com/service/CustNoticeCamcorder.asp?PgReq=DspDtaDtl&MdlNbr=GR-D72US&Pgm=CCD
, download the rapair request... Send it off to your nearest service center and
they ship it back all fixed up in less than a week. I must tell you though, you
ONLY have until Dec. 31 2008 to do this. Not only did they fix mine, they
cleaned the heads but also buffed out a scratch. After you get yours fixed, post
as many helps as you can to others.

My problem (posted above) was with the CCD. When I spoke to a JVC rep in early December, the deadline at the time for free repair was early November or October, I'm not sure which. He said just send it in to the nearest factory authorized service center with a note explaining the problem and they'll take care of it free of charge. No RMA needed. And I got a free repair with fast turnaround. I suggest to others with this problem to just send the camera in with a note and they'll probably take care of it for free. If they want to charge you they'll have to ask for permission first. Being the camera is unusable as it is, what have you got to lose?

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.
