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.

What does remove obstruction mean


Is mirror in locked up position? In manual mode? Especially if the lens is irised down to a high f-stop.

Remove stuck rear lens cap


The first thing I would try is using one of those rubber pads that are used for removing stubborn lids from jars. If that dose not work, I would use the fact that the Nikon rear lens caps are made out of soft plastic to my advantage. If you have a Dremel rotary tool with a disk cutting tool, you may be able to CAREFULLY and slowly cut away the lens cap. You didn't say which lens this is, but since with most lenses the telephoto position moves the rear element away from the back of the lens, I would set the lens to telephoto before starting to cut. I would start by cutting through the back of the lens cap. Cut a little at a time and try to take off the cap. Proceed slowly periodically trying to remove the cap. Hopefully, the pressure will be relieved and the cap will release before it becomes necessary to cut across the lens flange. When you are done, I would carefully clear the lens of any debris.

Kodak digital camera z990 lens obstructed remove lens cap


It seems that many people think that sending a camera back to the manufacturer is helpful. Most of us want help to fix it ourselves. If it is under warranty most know enough to send it back. If it is out of warranty the repair cost for most problems is more then it cost to replace it.

Cannot record, says lens cap needt to be removed


I would sugest removing the lens cap (protective cover over the lens) and see if that does the trick.

"Remove lens cap"


Lens damaged or grit/sand in it. If the lens is out at all then whoever was using it will know what happened, as it was going at the time.

If you think it's sand/grit, try tapping it on the bottom, while holding it lens downwards 1 foot above a piece of white paper, see what falls out.

I fixed these units for 4 years and we used to collect sand and tape it to the camera because customers would deny taking them to the beach. LOL.

Lens error nikon coolpix 4300


This error occurs if camera is turned on before lens cap is removed. If you are removing the lens cap before turning the camera on and still getting this message, camera should be serviced by a qualified technician.
