Canon Elura 60 won't power up

We have a Canon Elura 60 and while it doesn't have any obvious signs of abuse, the blasted thing won't power up. Battery is fine, but even when I plug the camera into the wall, the indicator light does not come on. Nothing. Not a peep out of the *&^#=! thing.

Seems like just a shame to toss it and "go out and buy a new one."
thanks

    Same thing just happened to me. I was in the middle of recording and the camera just stopped. Went completely dead, battery won't charge. And a new battery won't charge.

The same thing happened to mine soon after I got it. Turned out the plug I was using to plug it into the wall to charge had gone bad. The replacement was over $100 so I went with a (cheaper) wall battery charger that you conect the battery to.

Sometimes a smack around the edge of the lens will work. If it doesn't, then it might be a motor issue and will need to be taken apart.

Unfortunately, you will need to have your camcorder repaired. Inside of your mechanism there are several different components that can go bad and cause this problem. You might have a bad capstan motor or a bad gear. If you hear something spinning like crazy when you try and put a tape in, you have a issue with your capstan. Hope this info has helped you.

A flashing red symbol on the screen below the battery sign


It might be the backup battery alert. If it looks roughly like an oval with a bar through it, you need to change the button-style backup battery. The battery is a CR1616, and is located in a slide out holder that is in a slot just forward of the memory card slot.

Zoom button of canon elura minin dv


I had a similar problem. Searching Google for a solution, I came across the old -- "if it doesn't work, smack it" trick:

Remove any tape in the camera.
Remove the battery.

With your hand holding the top of camera, hit it firmly with a book on the bottom. I used about a 200 page paperback.

I suspect it is a electro-mechanical switch that gets stuck in the "On" position, and a little jolt frees it up again.

I have done this twice in the last month, and it works great.

Canon Elura 60 zooms by itself


Listen, I know it's a couple of years after this post but, try this: Remove cassette, push to close, close camera as if to use it, hold firmly in left hand, open hand slap it with your right hand once or twice, (I'm not joking) it worked the two times I had this problem. Problems with the zoom? Almost same process, push firmly on zoom button (to un-zoom) try doing this as your tapping it. These are last ditch efforts on an aging camera, it really has been a good one. I've put this poor thing through years of abuse, and it's held up pretty well. Good luck, Jeff S.
