Question about Canon MVX250I Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, It seems as though my canons mvx250i zoom has developed a mind of its own.When I switch it on it starts to zoom on its own.The zoom control only overcomes this when the switch is in use.Sometimes I can stop the zoom by tapping the cassette cover. The problem does not seem to be related to the zoom switch. Many Thanks Regards
Hi Each,I had the same problem - I sent it for repair at great cost and it was ok for a while. I left the camera alone for a couple of years with the battery in (dow dead) and when I had another look at it the problem had returned! I have found that during playback if I press the photo button while holding the zoom button off (Wide) that after a photo has been taken the camera returns to wide (I have to keep holding the the zoom button. This does mean that I can play a tape and record to my PC. I haven't tried to hold the button for an hour but I recon I could use sticky tape to do this. It's an awful solution but it means that I get to recover old tapes and transfer them to DVD later. I hope this helps but if anyone has a proper solution I would love to hear it.Steve - Beverley, East Yorks

Change LI-ion battery (not main power battery) ...change it every 1 year if your camera in low-activity use.
