JVC Mini DV Camera - Lens cap

\015 Model: GR-D23EK.When trying to record the screen shows the comment "lense cap". Any ideas what it could be and how I could fix it.Thanks \015\012\015\012DB\015

Answers :

Lens may be closed with a cover or with some kind of dust or dirt.
Aim at bright light subject. Get out of the house and try to capture in outdoor.
When the amount of light detected by the camera is next to zero, this message will appear. If the lens cap is off, then the problem is that the iris is stuck shut. This is not a common problem, but is not unheard of either. If this is the case, the unit needs service. This is not a repair that should be done by an inexperienced person. This involves dis-assembling part of the optical pathway. Figure around $100 for the repair.
