JVC camcorder problem gr d90

Not sure if I should put this in tech or photography, but either way. I've got this JVC camcorder, like 2 years old, give or take, and up until this point it has worked fine. Last time it was used, perfect, but now when I turn it on, it has some weird focus problem, where all it registers are objects in black and white, and very blurry, to the point where i can barely discern my hand in front of a light.

I have searched on google, but all I could come up with is people have a 'lens cap on' error, which I don't have. So, is there anyone who could shoot me some insight to this? I was hoping to use it wednesday, and it not working now is kind of a surprise.

I've tried it with several tapes, it records sound fine, but the video comes out the same, which is basically a white screen. Viewfinder or LCD.

Tried the manual focus, according to the manual, it didn't do much of anything. I think my mom may have left it sitting in the car for too long, and it got too hot. I dont know, the problems don't seem consistent with that.

I'm just guessing, but you might need to clean the heads.

I don't know much about cameras, but why would the heads effect what you see through the viewfinder/lcd screen?

Well, I was told the image sensor is bad, and that it'd be about $300 to fix. Unfortunately, the camera only cost me $250.

**** you JVC, **** you.

I used the camera maybe 6 times, if that.

I have the same camera, but have never had any problems. Mine is like 4 years old.

Yeah, never fix a camcorder under $900, cause the repair cost is way higher than it should be. I ****ing hate how expensive repair on video cameras is.
