Default LZ8 - Mode dial is not in the proper position - :(

I bought my son an LZ8 for Xmas last year, and it has recently developed a problem. When you turn on the camera, the LCD displays an "Mode Dial is not in the proper position" error message. The camera seems to be locked in this error, as turning the mode dial or pressing any other buttons seems to have no effect.

I have read about this problem in other Panny P&S reviews, but every reference I have read seems to imply that this is an intermittent problem, and I have not seen any possible fixes if the camera is stuck in error mode.

Do you guys have any ideas that I might try before I send it back to Panansonic for repairs?
