Here the recall, from JVC:
JVC has received reports that in certain circumstances, a small quantity of units of the models listed below, may, while in the camera mode, show no picture, a distorted picture and/or display "LENS CAP" even though the lens cap is removed. We have identified the cause as a failure of the CCD Image Sensor. Until 31st December 2009, JVC will cover the cost of repairs of units exhibiting these symptoms. Please note the failure of other components may give symptoms that are similar to those caused by a faulty CCD Image Sensor, however this offer extends only to failure of the CCD Image Sensor. Please also note that this offer does not cover any additional faults that may be found during examination of the unit.
