Question about Canon MVX1i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Has above , everything working but the above????/
I had the same on mine and here is the explanation because fixing it is not easy to impossible.
I had it fixed on mine just to see it getting worse after that.
Reason: The Zoom Slider puts a resistor to some printed curcuit board just beneath it and if that gets oxidised due to age it stops working. Only the remote workes then.
Workaround (recommended): Use the remote.
Fixing it is nearlky impossible as the printed circuit board is on the other side of the camera from where you start opening it and you have to comletely dissasemble it. I did and tried fixing it by cleaning the circuit boad, but it somehow changed the restance value and then it was stuck in full zoom all the time. Then had to re-open again and sever the connection completely, thus having the camera stuck in full view at least. but because of this strange resistor concept of the design, having the connection severed does not disable the zoom but rather simulates constant zooming out. hence my remote is now not longer working.
Hence: keep it simple and use the remote and be happy.
