I have seen other people with the same problem on your website. When I turn my JVC gr-axm220u on, I get a lens cap warning for a few seconds that then goes away. I have no picture at all until I point it at a very bright light source, at which time I get a dim representation of said light source. I also get a low contrast warning no matter what, and trying to adjust that manually gets no response. I have tried manually adjusting every setting with no response relevant to the problem. It does seem that regardless of whether the light source is close or near, it is in focus. Does not matter if I am using the eyepiece or the picture screen. It was working fine before.
