Question about Video Cameras
Message for CLIVEBEARMAN: I, too have problems with the camera zooming without touching the zoom switch. You mentioned purchasing the zoom button assembly. Precisely where does one purchase this item? I have searched Canon's site in vain. Does Canon have a detailed breakdown diagram of the camera if I elect to replace this switch myself? If I wish to have a technician do it for me, would you know of any local ones in the Kingston, NY area or Mid Hudson Valley? Thanks in advance! Robert Ruggiero
Is the auto zoom set. Anyways, too hard to answer without the camera model

Listen, I know it's a couple of years after this post but, try this: Remove cassette, push to close, close camera as if to use it, hold firmly in left hand, open hand slap it with your right hand once or twice, (I'm not joking) it worked the two times I had this problem. Problems with the zoom? Almost same process, push firmly on zoom button (to un-zoom) try doing this as your tapping it. These are last ditch efforts on an aging camera, it really has been a good one. I've put this poor thing through years of abuse, and it's held up pretty well. Good luck, Jeff S.

Guys, so weird but on another site it offered this suggestion: banged the base of your camera against something hard and it will become unstuck. So bang the base of your camera against something hard and it will work again, at least it works like it did but not sure for how long. Good luck. I can't believe that worked. Give it a try. I didnt hit it too hard either.
