Hi! I have a DVR4 2600 Swann, my cameras are working, but I can't get into the menu either directly on the DVR controls or via the remote???? I...

depress and hold the rewind button (<<) on the remote (or on the panel)until the units beeps.
It may take 20-30 seconds. or you may have to do it severalk times before you hear the beep. Once the unit beeps you should be able to get to the menu using the remote or the faceplate button.
Please note that the remote is infrared so the sensor on the faceplate is sensitive to where the remote is relative to the sensor on the faceplate.

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 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)

Zoom not working E61:10

Zoom motor in camera lens mechanism is stuck due to **** etc. You need to open camera, take out camera lens section and check zoom motor.

Do the above if you know basic electronics and have little experience of camera repair.
If don't, contact Sony Service to fix the camera.

Automatically zooming in


I contacted Canon about this same issue in my Elura 65, and they said to send it to them, they would have their techs investigate the cause and then contact me with the costs to make the repairs. They said that if I didn't want them to repair the problem, after I found out the cost, that they would reassemble the camera and send it back.


Mine is out of warranty, even with buying it at Costco, who doubles the warranty time. In my researching the problem, I have found another person with the same problem who had it repaired for something like $175. I will weigh that against purchasing a newer model.


Someone else did reccommend wacking in on the top a few times, shutting if off and turning it back on, and that would often fix the problem. I don't want to take the chance of ruining an important shot that may not come around again, by having to Indian Leg Wrestle my camera to get it to work. Best wishes.

Camera control buttons do not work, stop, play etc

your flexible control panel cable may have torn ( from loading and unloading ) - if there are leds ? in yours , the replacement part often does not have them ( many users miss them ) ; get an estimate , before committing to repairs on a 7 year old camera ( starts at $ 50 plus parts and shipping , here in puerto rico ) ;
