Canon ZR 50 - pause / record button does not work

My camcorder's pause /record button isn't working. I can't find a diagram on how to disassemble it and get the button off. Can anyone tell me where I can find an exploding diagram or directions on how to disassemble? Thanks.

DId you check the second Battery. The small circle one under the main battery? That was the case with mine. The pause, rec button wouldnt work until i replaced the small circle battery.

As far as I am aware, service diagrams for Canon products are not available to the general public. They are provided to facilities that Canon has authorized to repair their products.

Connecting zr85 to vcr to record vhs tape to dv or sd card

I also have a Canon ZR-- left of the lens and the built-in microphones, there is a small panel that opens to reveal several ports. The middle yellow one is the AV In/Out. You can plug in the cable that came with your camera. One end looks like a microphone plug, the other has 3 RCA type plugs- red, white and yellow. These get plugged into your VCR's OUT plugs on the back of the VCR. Place a tape in the camcorder, open the LCD panel and push the REC PAUSE button. On the VCR, press the Play button. When the tape reaches the point you want to begin recording, press the camcorder's Play/Pause button. When you want to stop recording, press the Stop button on the camcorder.
This is also detailed on page 82 of your manual, manuals are available online at Your specific manual is at:
Hope this helps.

ZR50 Rec/Pause button not working

I encountered the same problem with the Canon REC/Pause switch was intermittent. To solve the problem I used a high pressure air hose and blasted the switch with air. It cleaned the contacts of the switch without having to take it apart.
