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."
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.

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.

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.
Hello. 1. Completely remove battery and then restore it and try. 2. If you here sound of engine when camera wants to open door but can`t shake door by hand. If problem persist you need to open it inside and clean it.
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.
