    My GR-DX77 will zoom spontaneously: you can go wide using the "W" button on the back of the camera, but as soon as you release the "W," it zooms back in again, all the way to 40x. It may be that the "power zoom" on top of the camera is faulty: if I fiddle with it, the problem goes away temporarily, but I think the "power zoom" button is so touchy, that just handling the camera jiggles it back into the position that forces the spontaneous zooming. HOWEVER, note that 1) I just got this camera, and went through the instructions fairly quickly, and 2) most recently, it will spontaneously zoom, but only to 12x, suggesting that it IS a setting that can be changed. Anyone?

Turn on the unit and goes to full zoom. Back it off manually, it will immediately return to full zoom. Unit was bought new about 6 years ago.


My camera did the same....it turned out to be a sticking zoom switch. With the camera turned OFF... move the zoom button ON TOP ( above the view finder) of the camera to the left and right about 20 or 30 times... then turn the camera on and try it.... very simple... but it worked for me :o)

JVC GR-DF470AA continually zooms in automatically even when not pressing zoom. Its like the zoom button is stuck on zoom. To stop the zoom I have to press the zoom out.


This sounds like a physical problem with the switch, but you will have to disassemble it to see what's going on. There are videos on utube that demonstrate the process, if you elect to try that. If you elect to have it serviced, get an estimate first, as they can be fairly expensive to fix. Wish I had better news.
