Have patience. I received my production model a week ago and it also has the split screen problem WHEN THE GAIN IS TURNED ON.
It has been mentioned in other threads (dvinfo and dvxuser.com) that there are two image processors (one for right, and one for left) and that they are not calibrated properly. It has also been suggested that a firmware update is around the corner that will solve the problem, and will be user servicable.
As for white pixels, my unit has one, but it is only noticable at +18db. I don't ever plan on shooting at +18db, so it doesn't bother me. However, some have suggested on this forum that a service technician can "mask" those pixels (as with most professional cameras) from the service menu.

It is important that you work with the dealer who sold you the camera. You should contact the dealer and seek their assistance in helping you to resolve these issues.

anyway I read many people in this site say that happen for all new products , in fact thatís not true ,
I seem to remember way back in the dark ages of 1998 a video noise/shielding problem with the first batch of XL1s.
And then in 2000 there was the audio noise problem of the first VX2000s/PD150s.
Mouayed, this really does happen with first batch cameras. Don't sweat it. Work with your dealer and I imagine you'll get these problems taken care of.

I received my camera today after repair and the split screen problem is less apparent but definitely there when I underexpose the image. They didn't repair the missing pixel on my LCD but it is in the black bars anyway. So I guess sending the camera to JVC will do something but not that much.
I guess I'll have to live with that, I have to forget about those problems and get back working on my film.

That's VERY DISTURBING!
I sure hope that JVC addresses the issue (or may have already) in an official fashion to dispell speculation and assure its potential customers that issues will be/are taken care of. Otherwise, they are taking chances on their marketshare.
Actually, I would really like to see more presence of JVC customer reps on this board. When a serious issue with the product is raised on other boards, namely AVID, the reps come in to clearify. I realize that DVinfo is not an official JVC board but there is a very significant presence of JVC owners and potential future owners that IMHO shoud warrant a bit more interest from the manufacturer.
