Image on JVC Camcorder GZ-MG27U

I have an image on my screen that I can not remove and when I called JVC they had no clue and suggested I send my camera in for repair. Does anyone know how to remove it. It looks like a big black spider with a web across all screens

Given only that much detail, my guess

This is only a guess. It sounds like a cracked LCD. To remove it should require a trip to the repair facility.

This unit showed up in 2006 so given what repairs run, I'd shop for a replacement then ebay this one.

Defiantly not cracked

Definitely not cracked and is an image as if it was added for say Halloween . I tried to upload an image but it wouldn't let me from my ipad. I'll try once on my laptop

Then do a factory reset or any reset noted in manuals.

The defaults should be without effects.

Tried both resets

I tried both resets and nothing happens. I did the one using. Paper clip, it cycled off then back on and also through the one through the menu. When I did the one through the menu and press execute nothing happens

Then it most likely

Has to go to their service center. I'm not there to explore all menus and I don't have this one in reach either.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
