Here is the link to the user manual for your camcorder if you need it; http://books.jvcservice.com/download/685826248/21964.pdf There does not appear to be a factory settings reset, however in the manual, all the settings and their preset values are listed. You could try removing all multimedia cards, battery, power supply and leaving the unit for around 3 months! (page 11) to discharge the internal memory cell, or if you feel competent to take the camcorder apart, you MAY be able to remove and replace this battery. Unfortunately I think the resets have to all be done individually, or take the camcorder to a service centre to see if they can discharge the internal memory cell - this is probably not a good idea, dependent on the exact tyoe of cell used. Hope this helps some :)

SOURCE: zoom/focus on hd camcorder
I had the same problem w/ the same camera. My wife fixed it by doing this: holding down the pictue snapshot button and the video record button simultaneously. Low and behold, the focus came back. I was amazed! Try it.

Zoom the camcorder as far as it will go and shine a flashlight into the lens assy. Inside the lens assy there is an iris that works pretty much like our eyes (closes when it is too bright and opens up when it is darker). If all you see is black when you are shining the light into the lens, your iris is stuck closed (like having your eyes shut). If your iris appears to be open and functioning properly, then you likely have an issue with your CCD assy. The CCD assy is the what lets your lens talk to your main PCB.
Sometimes by zooming in all the way and shining a light into the lens, the camcorder will "unstick" itself. You will most likely need to have it repaired by an experienced technician.
Hope this has helped you.
