Question about Canon ZR500 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I love my ZR500, but the power switch has developed a problem where it will sometimes power off and on multiple time before it finally decides it will behave. It only does this on the Camera setting, the Play setting is solid. Is there an easy way to get in there and clean the switch? I suspect a dirty contact, or some other fairly simple problem and it's off warranty.
Since canon wants to charge more to fix it than what it is worth I would suggest buying another camera, just don't buy a Canon. Then I would take the piece of junk you are stuck with and send it to them. Tell them you will never buy any other canon products and then mention where they can stick their service dept.

I got a response back from Canon. They said
"The repair cost could cost from $145 to $320. It could be more or less. The repair is based on the evaluation of the issue and the parts it will take to repair the camera."
For a $250 camera that wouldn't be smart.
