Focus is stuck on about 2X, it wont zoom in or out
My camcorder is stuck on a zoom of about 2X normal view, it will not zoom in or out. Problem seems to be an electronic one, not a mechanical one. Have tried everything I can to reset/reboot but problem persists. Any ideas??

I had the same problem w/ the same camera. My wife fixed it by doing this: holding down the pictue snapshot button and the video record button simultaneously. Low and behold, the focus came back. I was amazed! Try it.
An E:61:10 error means Zoom operations fault Inspect the lens block zoom reset sensor.
You can try to do a manual reset on your camera. If that doen't work it will probably have to be sent in for service.
Have you cleaned the heads lately? Or the focus sensor. My previous advice for some one else is to clean the heads every 25 hrs of play. Buy a commercial tape cleaner. Try that first.
If that doesn't help you may need to take it to a camera shop and have it cleaned and re-aligned because of normal usage after 2 years. Probably your best option.
