Canon XM2 Hi I own a Canon XM2 which has developed a problem with its zoom function. The zoom buttons do not work and it has started to sporadically zoom to its closest point and stick there. Any assistance very much appreciated. Thanks Steve

Re: Canon XM2

You might have bad contact in zoom switch unit or a short in zoom switch. The switch assembly is replaced for the remedy.

The zoom stopped working. does anyone know what to do?

This is the power zoom control?
Could be a burnt out servo motor that does the work.
I think there's no way out but a repair shop.

The zoom control of my cannon xm2 does not work

This is most likely a defective zoom rocker switch assembly and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I have xm2 canon, and I can't find the night vision mode on it.

I do not believe XM2 or GL2 does not have night vision mode. You may achieve little using video gain control. We all know Sony has the night vision modes which have been popular feature. James
