    Same problem with the Canon Elura 65. It defaults to zoom all the way in. It will work if I hold the zoom button to capture a wider frame, but as soon as I take my finger off of the zoom button, it reverts to zooming all the way in.

    I have the Canon Elera 60 and it also continues to zoom in even when you do not touch the zoom button. I had contacted Canon to see if there is a recall but they stated there has not been many problems like this. Maybe if everyone who has this problem contacts Canon they will get the message. Let me know if there are any simple solutions. A local repair place stated it would be ~ $200.00 + to fix without them knowing for sure they could fix it.

    My Eleura 65 is also stuck on maximum zoom, only pulling out when I manually fix it but then zooming as soon as my finger is off the button.

    This happened last November and the problem stopped spontaneously, I have no idea why.

    The problem resumed a month ago and doesn't seem likely to correct itself this time, at least not anytime soon.

I had the very same problem. It is a defect in the camera. I took it to the Canon repair facility here in NJ and they fixed it for free.

My canon elura 60 when open my video cam it zoom automatically and the zoom lever dont work.


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.

Sometimes a smack around the edge of the lens will work. If it doesn't, then it might be a motor issue and will need to be taken apart.

Zoom problem


The zoom is stuck. Smack the bottom of the camera with the palm of your hand. Worked like a charm for me.

Zoom button of canon elura minin dv


I had a similar problem. Searching Google for a solution, I came across the old -- "if it doesn't work, smack it" trick:

Remove any tape in the camera.
Remove the battery.

With your hand holding the top of camera, hit it firmly with a book on the bottom. I used about a 200 page paperback.

I suspect it is a electro-mechanical switch that gets stuck in the "On" position, and a little jolt frees it up again.

I have done this twice in the last month, and it works great.

Elura 60 doesn't take still pictures


I had a similar problem with zoom being stuck and also not being able to take a still. I tried the suggestion of whacking it in the area of the zoom and photo button and it started working.

I just tapped it with two fingers. Sounds odd but it worked. good luck

Zooming problem


I have the same problem. I have no fix in rec mode but if it happens during playback; press menu and select the zoom options. You don't have to pick any but just keep the menu displayed on the screen. I do this while recording the tape to my DVD recorder and it solves the locked zoom problem. The menu display does not get recorded.
This zoom problem is a big pain. We should start a class action suit against Canon. It started within a year of ownership with mine. I bought a Panasonic recently and haven't looked back.
Panasonic doesn't have the slick Canon marketing/packaging but it is a much better machine.
