According to its specifications, this lens can use a 72mm filter. So you should be able to get the type lens cap that clips into a 72mm filter to work. Such as the one shown here. I'd recommend you go to a local camera store and try one to make sure it works.

The most likely cause for this is a zoom lens out of place or impaired in some way. This will require disassembling the camera to remove the lens assembly and then disassembling the lens block to repair. This can be done fairly inexpensively but it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.

This happens when the internal focus lens is off track, usually caused by impact and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The problem that Im having with my Canon ES190 is that the zoom doesn't work any more, is there a battery or something that I need to get for the zoom to work again?


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

You have an internal "lens cap" that covers the lens to protect it when it is not in use. Look around the front of the camera, near the lens and you should find some sort of switch or lever that will open the lens cap.

Won't zoom out


This seems to be a common issue.
Mine was stuck at what seemed like max optical zoom.
When i would look in the lens I could not see the zoom lens. If you can not see your zoom lens and the optical zoom seems stuck I bet your camera has the same STUPID issue that mine has.

It was out of warranty and I figured I had nothing to loose so I took it apart to see if I could fix it, turns out I was able to fix it just by taking it apart and putting it back together!


Taking it apart is simple enough for the average handy man, if you do not have confidence that you can take it apart then do not attempt this repair.

Take off the bottom cover.
Take off the Hard drive cover
Now remove the three screws under the hard drive that hold the drive's plastic housing in.
Remove the screw that is right under the record button, now the drive house should be loose.
Disconnect drive cable from board and remove drive and housing.
Take off the plastic piece that has the zoom button, be sure to gently disconnect the wire.
Remove rear piece.
That screw marked with an arrow on the bottom, do not remove it!
Now remove the thin metal piece to expose the flat cable.
disconnect flat cable from board
gently flex it out of the way so you can disconnect the cable behind it.
Once you have both disconnected remove the circuit board.
unplug the flat cable on the back side.
Now remove the front piece.
At this point you are nearly there!
Now remove the metal housing that holds the lens assembly.
Once removed remove the lens assembly by removing the three screws.

If you thought that was bad, this next part will scare you.
Make sure you are in a very clean room with no fans blowing.
Remove the CCD from the rear of the lens assembly by removing the two screws on the back that hold it in place.
Remove the foam and square lens piece that were behind the CCD.
On the side of the assembly is a screw that holds the top cover in, remove it and gently pry off the top cover.

looking inside you will find the following:
on the CCD side is the focus lens.
in the middle is the shutter
On the side farthest from the CCD is a zoom lens.

On mine the zoom lens was not close to the shutter
If your zoom lens is not close to the shutter then you likely have the same problem as I had and you can fix yours!
If not, you likely have some other issue :-(

To fix mine I turned it over and I loosened the screws that held the motor and shaft for the zoom lens.
Then I slid the zoom lens as far back as it would go towards the shutter.
Then tightened the zoom lens motor and shaft mount.
Put it all back together, installed battery and bingo it's working again!


Why did this fix the problem?
Well there is a little sensor that tells the camera that the zoom lens is near the shutter.
Each time you turn off the camera it always puts the lens in that "home" position.
If the camera is turned on when the zoom lens is not in this "home" position then the camera seems to assume the zoom is broken and you end up with the infamous JVC stuck zoom issue.

My guess is this problem is caused by any of the following:
1. Removing the battery while the camera is turned on
2. Dropping the camera while it is on or off
3. Battery going dead while camera is in use

Final thoughts before you get started:

1. If you are not good at working with tiny parts or electronics, I wish you luck because you will need it. Might be better off printing these instructions and taking them with you to a repair facility and paying someone more familiar with this sort of work to fix it for you.

2. The ribbon cables are removed easily. Each one has a clamp that rotates to release the ribbon. Some rotate towards the ribbon to release, others work the opposite. It is quite obvious looking at them which ones go what way.

Lens failing to function properly


Yes, this is a strange issue. Have you dropped the unit, or maybe 'bumped' it or anything similar. I know alot of times, people like to 'hit' their unit, to get it to do things (like eject tape). What people don't realize, is that these machines are prone to damage when hit hard enough (just like anything else).

In any event, this is not an misconfiguration issue, and you won't be able to fix it. You would need to bring it in to a qualified service center for an estimate. Be sure to shop around to find the best price and service. Since parts for these are not cheap, and they are labor intensive.

Good luck.

Hope this helps some.

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

Zoom problem


Ive seen this three times and everytime its been something differant. Fist was the rocker switch was jammed. easy fix as dirt was in there. Second was a small serface maounted capacitor in the zoom interface circuit. An third never found the problem as we thought it was a limit switch in the lens itself but the customer never paid for a new lens assy so we didnt order it. Good luck
