Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-L652 VHS-C Analog Camcorder

Open Question

My zoom buttons don't always work.

Sometimes digital zoom works and sometimes it doesn't. At times it gets stuck on D-zoom 2 and everything is blurred. At other times it gets stuck on D-zoom 1 and refuses to zoom in for close-ups. I can't figure out whats wrong. Redd123

My canon elura 60 digital video camcorder doesn't zoom in and out. it seems to be stuck

Sometimes a smack around the edge of the lens will work. If it doesn't, then it might be a motor issue and will need to be taken apart.

Camcorder zooms by itself.

this is some problem with the panel of buttons is your unit.

this will need some service from the company directly.

Zoom is stuck

Zoom assy may be defective or problem with the lens. Try moving the zoom lever back and forth a few times. Sometimes, something in the lens will get stuck and it just takes a little repetition to get it "unstuck". If this does not work, you will have to have it repaired by an experienced technician. <a href=""></a>

Mvx1i zoom does not operate at all


I had the same on mine and here is the explanation because fixing it is not easy to impossible.

I had it fixed on mine just to see it getting worse after that.

Reason: The Zoom Slider puts a resistor to some printed curcuit board just beneath it and if that gets oxidised due to age it stops working. Only the remote workes then.

Workaround (recommended): Use the remote.

Fixing it is nearlky impossible as the printed circuit board is on the other side of the camera from where you start opening it and you have to comletely dissasemble it. I did and tried fixing it by cleaning the circuit boad, but it somehow changed the restance value and then it was stuck in full zoom all the time. Then had to re-open again and sever the connection completely, thus having the camera stuck in full view at least. but because of this strange resistor concept of the design, having the connection severed does not disable the zoom but rather simulates constant zooming out. hence my remote is now not longer working.

Hence: keep it simple and use the remote and be happy.

Canon MVX250i Zoom Problem

I had this problem on this camera. I found the battery removal rechnique seemed to work for only a short while, then the problem would come back repeatedly. I looked into just buying a new one but when I explained the problem to a salesman in an independent camera shop, he asked me if I'd just tried hitting the top of the camera. Apparently the motor sometimes gets stuck. Since the camera was virtually useless I tried this (hit it 2 or 3 times quite firmly, near the lens and by the accessory shoe). Now it zooms in and out perfectly and so far hasn't reverted to its problem state.

Must try to give the camera shop some other business - maybe when I buy a new stills camera
