Zoom button stuck on full in zoom

Possible that the zoom switch is short or struck in action where by the zoom has gone to the extreme end. Wriggle the switch after the cam is switched off and see if it returns. If not the unit must be opened to check for the switch failure or possible motor failure, drive circuit or a mechanical jamming.

My sony handy cam shakes really bad when I zoom...It's not caused by me because it still does it even on a tripod...Is something loose?...any info on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated

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.

The zoom assembly will need to be replaced. This repair should be done by an experienced technician. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix that you can do yourself.

Hope this helps you.

My JVC Everio gz-mg335hu will not zoom or focus? when you power on it is blurry, when you try to zoom nothing happens if you hold zoom over it trys to zoom/ focus... some times it will say it is zooming...

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.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

The most likely cause for this is a damaged or defective flexible ribbon cable that connects the LCD to the camera body and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Panasonic SD5 won't focus after being dropped. Have turned it off and on...removed battery etc. Got message to reset, have done that several times. It will record but only very blurry unrecognizable...

Hi Violet. I'm afraid I don't have any good news about this kind of problem, and I'll tell you why. When the cam won't focus, it's usually a problem with the lens assembly, and the fact that you can't zoom verifies that. There are a lot of small plastic parts in the lens assembly that can break easily, or get jammed. When that happens, service is required on the unit, to replace the broken part, or reset the assembly, but often they just replace the whole lens assembly. Is it still under some kind of warranty? In that case, I would have to looked at. If you do choose to get it fixed, and you have no warranty, get an estimate first. Repair costs can be high, and at that point you have to decide whether to repair it, or get another cam. Wish I had better news for you, but hope this helps in your decision of what to do next. Good luck, and be careful, these cams are great, but delicate!

The zoom does not respond

Hello. The stuck lens assembly is triggering an error condition--and you get the "press reset" to make you reset the internal computer in the cam. Was the unit dropped or did it have some sort of impact--this would cause the internal lens mechanism to become mis-aligned. Also, leaving the cam in a hot car can cause grease(or other lubricants) to flow to movement surfaces, thereby causing a "glue" effect. Look into the lens(cam off) under a bright light and try to determine if the internal lens assembly is crooked. Also, try to see if there is any "wet" area appearing anywhere(especially if the cam was exposed to heat--classic symptom) If the lens assembly is indeed mis-aligned, the cam must be sent to a repair facility. (Also, make sure the battery is fully charged as a weak charge will cause lens jamming(and a whole host of weird phenomenons)---Rick

Zoom button is pushed in the camera

The rubber spring for the power button inside the cam has been pushed hard. You need to re-align it.
