I purchased my Sanyo Xacti VPC-CA8 in Japan, and apparently the menu is only in Japanese, and there is no way to change the language through the menu.

Is there any firmware of the english version available somewhere? Or maybe a homebrew firmware?
I would really appreciate now, since beside shooting a video, I don't know how to use the other functions...

Thanks!
Tom

have you tried going on the fifth option in the menu section (its the second number two dunno what it is in the japanese language) and in that section go to the second to last one and it should be language, i don't know if you tried that yet but maybe there's an english option there.

I was just going to suggest the same thing.

I just got mine a couple days ago and noticed all the language options including many with asian style characters. I bet you can configure this. Is Sanyo worth a call? Maybe they cover this on some tech discussion group.

What I don't know and would be reticent to try is what would happen if I switched to one of them. I might not be able to figure out how to get back to english depending on what is presented in that language?

Let us know if you might need a count of which option level by number is required to see a language selection. I would hope it would display "English" on the menu.

I reached that menu, but the only language that is available is Japanese (It is mentioned in Japanese letters, but I know how it looks like).

Is there any firmware update I can do? What other options do I have?
