ZR50 Rec/Pause button not working

The record/pause button on my ZR50 does not work. I cannot get the camera off of pause to record video. The camera works fine with the remote control, so I believe the problem to be the actual switch. How do I disassemble to fix or replace the switch?

I encountered the same problem with the Canon REC/Pause switch was intermittent. To solve the problem I used a high pressure air hose and blasted the switch with air. It cleaned the contacts of the switch without having to take it apart.

You are right.. if you know that you can fix the carbon button..replace it with the metal contact of the tac switch or micro switch...the diameter of the contact must be bigger to the contact area to prevent shorted connection

Telephone recording won't work


You need to have a telephone record adapter plugged into the back of the 3750. Then you press and hold the Tel Rec button until it begins recording.

Also check to see if the 'Vox' or 'VA' switch is on (voice activation). This will cause the machine to pause if the volume is too low.

Recording


I think it should be possible. As long as you don't exceed the resolution of the DVD player. It should work fine. Just keep DVD player in Rec / Pause mode then hit Rec button when you want to record a clip, then pause it again. That should work fine. Have a good night. Jay

How do I pause while recording?


As far as I can tell, and yes the documentation is skimpy, when you press the 'record/play' button the video recording pauses. Make sure you press the video icon button, not the 'record/play' button to get it started again. If you press the 'record/play' button, it goes into a 'play back' mode.

Hope this helps...
