Hmm... can you do an fdisk on your LV now?  That error doesn't look
good though.
Nope, still says "unable to read"

Are you able to run fdisk on each of the member physical volumes
successfully?
I'm not sure how to do that.  For example:

imgserv:/storage/# fsck /dev/sda3
fsck 1.41.3 (12-Oct-2008)
fsck: fsck.lvm2pv: not found
fsck: Error 2 while executing fsck.lvm2pv for /dev/sda3

Though, it looks like fsck.lvm2pv is not something that has actually
been created yet.

Nono, don't do that... fsck is for filesystems :)  Just run fdisk
/dev/sda, run 'p' (for print) and see if you can see your LVM
partition.

Just a poor man's way to check that /dev/sda is OK.  Do this for the
other PV members.

Do not run fsck on it, that'll hose the data (if it even runs at all).

fdisk -l /dev/...

Should do the job aswell, if it's only about printing the partition table
