There may be two different-sized threaded holes on the bottom center of the unit that will accept the tripod adapter(may be called 'quick release')plate screw. Match, tighten( a penny will do, a quarter is easier to grip) and away you go. Take it slow, don't pan much, let the event unfold in front of you. You'll have more fun if you anticipate the stages that make this thing happen. That way you are telling a story rather than just operating a camera. Good Luck vac8

Inside your camera there is mechanical movement when you zoom. There is a motor that turns a wheel is connected to a belt with teeth that goes to your lens. this moves the lens in and out. If a screw on this assembly is loose then anything of that sort can happen. You to have the lens assembly opened professionally then check if the belt and motor are still running properly and if the assembly is not loose. You can tighten the screws or if something is cracked you can use superglue to join it together. Using it like that will make the situation worse and it might stop working.
Wow, how did you remove the batteries? I don't know how to get the case open... can you help?
I think I have a solution for your problem... on the bottom of the camera where you would screw in a tripod there is a reset "hole". Take a small paperclip and stick it in the reset hole for a count of seven.... rinse and repeat... just kidding. Do that about three times giving it a few moments between.
You could try a little silicone spray around the threads (might want to wrap the camera in a cloth first).
However, if your camera was not threaded on straight then nothing will help to get it off but patience and persistance.
I suggest you use lightweight tripod instead of shoulder pads. Shooting stance using lcd monitor is very different from shooting stance using old cameras. connect the camera to the tripod and rest the tripod feet in you waist(Bind the tripod feet together), getting a clear view of lcd monitor. it is like carrying a flag pole when marching. using old shooting stance will only make you appear a crossed eye videographer!![:0)
