Sony HandyCam CCD TRV 46E

None of the button on the top are working, have to use the remote.
Now using the zoom on the remote has stopped working.
Sometimes when I turn camera on to start recording it plays automatically.
Any hope of saving it or is it destined for the dump?
Any assistance appreciated, Thank's LJ

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
