Hi Kaushik...........

Nothing else to be done, it needs to go in to have the front element replaced.

From my (limited) experience, modern camcorders have a sealed module that encompasses the "focus/ zoom" unit behind a front fixed element, which would appear to be the one damaged.

With a bit of luck the only repair is to the front element and not the entire lens (unless JVC have done something really dumb........).

Best give them (JVC) a call and see what they suggest.

I will refrain from echoeing the many complaints about JVC service authored here, but "may God have mercy on your soul", I think you may need it!
