Problem with video recording
Hi I have a JVC (GR-D 70AA) camcorder I am having a problem with.I am having trouble getting a picture on my camcorder. When turned on I only see black through the lens and through the screen. It looks like the lenscap is still on and Constantly gives the lens cap warning . The LCD is black with the lenscap and focus warnings flashing. Please tell me, what happened and how to fix it. Thankyou
Just to say that I came across this thread on the net when searching for 'lens cap problem' and it was very helpful to me. I have a £1500 JVC GR-PD1 (UK PAL model) which has been used literally *3* times before... I've just dug it out of the box to start using it more, and I encountered the 'remove lens cap' problem. Damn! However, JVC (well, their service agents in Kent) are going to fix it, even though it's way out of warranty, being about two-and-a-half years old. Cheers, JD, South Coast, UK
Had same problem and it's a wonder they didn't recall them all, requires a circuit type replacement had mine fixed no trouble.
i bought my GR-D70 AA 5 years ago. I've had the same problem for the last 3 years of it. You've got to get it repaired by the JVC as they have to change the IC on it. It cost me $180 AUD 3 years ago. But it's still stuffed. I'm never going to buy a JVC product again.
I have the same model, about 2 years ago I had the same problem, I had it seen to through waranty by a freelance technican who said it was "to do with a lubricant within the camera", that, if it is left in a hot area i.e left in car on hot day especially in direct sunlight, the lube will thin out and seep into a sensitive section. So that could be it, The techo fixed it and I haven't left it in hot places anymore. I'm after a driver for mine due a system brakedown and no disc(lost it) don't know if you could help?
I have the same problem as you with the european version of the JVC GR-HD1US (is called JVC GR-PD1)!! But nobody talk about it in Europe. This information could help me, thank you very much

Hi, I have a JVC GR-D30 and I have the exact same problem as you. I studied the entire user's manual and found nothing to fix it. Did you find anything?
