  1. LYF67F: For me,
    1. LYF65N: This happened for 2 of my 2 units, both within ~1 month of buying them new
      1. LYF6D2: How did the cracks happen?
        1. LYF71Y: I don’t know exactly.
        2. LYF72D: Did NOT happen when the unit was hit (as by a fall) as a hit never happened.
        3. LYF73F: My best guess is it happened when the unit was in my back pocket while I driving (sitting in the driver’s seat, which are always cushioned)
          1. LYF8EM: Official page Sanyo.com for model features pic of camera being conveniently stored in back pocket of even-woman’s tight jeans.
            1. Archived this page HTML-only to std location.
            2. LYF8OE: Archived this page complete to std location (just in case they didn’t keep pic URL).
    2. LYF68W: This did NOT happen for all my prior Sanyo VPC models (about 4, dating back to about 2005)
    3. LYF6A8: All my Sanyo VPC I handled the same way: carried in my front or back pants pocket, or in any of jacket pockets.
  2. LYFAL0: The maker’s warranty
    1. LYFDKJ: official page US.Sanyo.com for model.
      1. LYFALJThe manual in English does not mention anything about a warranty.
    2. LYFAUW: Official press release for the camera says “SANYO offers a one-year warranty on all Xacti Dual Cameras.”
      1. LYFB2S: Archived to here.
    3. LYFE3K: Google Search “Sanyo xacti warranty”
      1. LYFE8Y: find 2 of someone asking the general public what is it with 2 of 2 answers quoting 3rd parties, NOT the vendor, suggesting it’s hard to find.
      2. LYFE9A: didn’t seem to have much more useful detail.
