Microwave induced photoconductivity of a two-dimensional electron gas in selectively doped GaAs/AlAs heterostructures has been studied using the Corbino geometry with capacitive contacts at a temperature T=1.6 K and magnetic field B up to 0.5 T. Zero-conductance states have been observed in the samples under study subject to microwave radiation, similarly to the samples with Ohmic contacts. It has been shown that Ohmic contacts do not play a significant role for observation of zero-conductance states induced by microwave radiation.
