Yes, the serial numbers are here. I believe it's a PAL/European thing only.

"When the Professional Camcorder or Camera is used in camera mode, the LCD panel and/or electronic viewfinder will show either a distorted image or no image."

"Defect could cause some digital cameras to stop working
By LEONARD FISCHER

First, the bad news: Five popular makers of digital cameras and camcorders have acknowledged a defect that could cause hundreds of thousands of units manufactured from 2002 through 2004 to stop working correctly.

Now, the good news: All of the companies have agreed to fix the problem for free -- even if your camera or camcorder is out of warranty.

The defect can occur in more than 150 different models sold by Sony, Canon, Nikon, Fuji and Konica Minolta that use image sensors, called CCDs, made by Sony's semiconductor group.

The glitch involves the "glue" that holds the image sensor in place, says Rachel Branch, a Sony spokeswoman. Heat and humidity can cause the glue to deteriorate, disconnecting the sensor's wiring. This results in the camera capturing distorted images or no images at all.

Sony estimates that the problem has occurred or will occur in only one-half of 1 percent of cameras sold with the company's sensor in the United States because "it's not as hot or humid here as it is in, say, Singapore," Branch says.

Sony: http://www.css.ap.sony.com/consumer/....aspx?Id=45536. Sony also has set up several phone numbers for assistance. Professional customers in the eastern United States can call 201-833-5300. Professional customers in the western part of the country can call 866-766-9272. Consumers in any part of the United States can call 866-703-7669.
