Question about Canon MVX250I Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I suspect the zoom is also a problem on the camera record also and not just in playback mode. Not certain as to why this happens but I have solved this problem on two MVX250i's by doing the following:
Remove the battery, release the palm strap (velcro) and open the cassette door. remove the two small screws, one in the front and one in the rear of the switch panel holding the zoom button. remove also the two screws it the face of the door cover. Grip the ends of the switch panel with one hand and raise it slightly. At the same time pull lightly on the plastic door cover in a slightly downward direction and the three lugs holding the cover should release. The lower edge of the cover is held with a hook under the metal door and a small metal hook on the lower corner by the strap. The speaker is mounted on the plastic cover and connected by printed cables. Take care not to damage these. The printed cable is attached to the door with an adhesive pad which can be carefully removed and the speaker will then fall from its socket. Close the cover and re-fit the battery. Check if the fault still occurs. On both my cameras the fault disappeared at that point and remained solved when re-assembled. I suspect it to be a poor joint on the printed cables where they enter the sockets at each end.Moving the cables slightly seemed to be the solution. To get to the lower end connection the cassette mechanism has to be parted from the camera. Not an easy job. The top end connection is not easy to access either. When re-fitting the speaker, make certain it is seated correctly in its socket. If it is not then it will short against the metal door.
This operation requires a very small screwdriver, a steady hand and good eyesight/lighting. Re-assembling is never as easy as dismantling so beware. Needless to say I will take no responsibility for these suggestions should it result in your not being able to reassemble it or in your damaging it in the process.
