Question about Canon Elura 100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

3 Answers

Canon Elura 100 will not come on

When I plug my Canon Elura 100 camcorder in to the AC adapter, the screen comes on showing a blue "Canon" logo, and I hear the little "ping" sound that it makes when it powers up. However, this happens even if the power switch is turned to "off", and turning the switch to "camera" or "play" does nothing--the screen still shows the "Canon" logo. The only way to turn the unit off is to unplug it from the AC adapter and wait for the battery to run out.

I am able to load and eject tapes, but I can't record or play back on tapes or SD cards since the screen never shows anything but the "Canon" logo.

This camcorder should have a removeable battery you can take out.

Remove the battery and the ac adapter, wait 5 minutes and plugin the battery again, if you have the same problem and the camcorder is still stuck on the canon screen, the internal software is most likely corrupt or you have a hardware fault.

All I can suggest is to send it to canon repairs

Grey bars show across the screen image during playbvack and download with my Canon Elura 100 digital camcorder.


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

I have a Canon elura 100 camcorder miniDV it has was everyone tells me is a firewire cable to connect to my pc. I have several pc and laptops but not one has a connection to connect this cable to them. ...


Most Windows PCs have USB ports, but no Firewire port. As they do not come with this interface, you need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card into one of the PCI bus expansion slots. You can buy these cards cheaply from eBay or Amazon. They will come with a driver for the card.

Of course, this only works with desktop computers, laptops or notebooks cannot be expanded in this way.

I have a Canon elura 100 just has blue screen and says Canon. It powers up but everything else is useless other then seeing the blue screen that says cannon on it.


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Canon Elura 60 won't power up


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.

Won't play tapes, just stays on the blue screen


ok. what you need to do it hit the side where the tape goes in...start out slow and then gradually hit harder and harder...not too hard though...because it sounds like a hardware jam...you need to unjam it by shaking it up a bit.

Camera won't record


Hi!

First of all, English is not my natural language, so please forgive me. My canon elura 100, bought in the US 1 year ago, had the same problem. After a big fall (from a second floor), the camera landed in wet sand and after that the camera won't record again (it plays the recorded files just ok). Just today i had the time to check the camera, so i disassemble the camera and found a poorly connected cable, that goes from from the lens body to the motherboard of the camera. After reconnecting this cable the camera start recording again.

regards

See to it that you have an OS which is XP version or Vista Version. then Plug your camcorder, if it detects low power transfer the connection at the back of your PC, then double click you my computer icon see if another drive come out, if it has then thats it, double click the new drive then locate all your files then copy and paste it unto your PC.  if still didn't work out I'm sure it has a CD suite then install it. Thats it..

Canon Elura 100 Power Dead


Just an update.
I sent it back to the factory - and they fixed the power unit.
However, they told me that now my Memory card and memory card operations will not work.
They did not charge me for it - they took it under warranty.
Everything else seems to be working.
