    I have the same problem. It has just started to happened within the last couple of months. What have I done? Read the manual, but nothing in it that pertains to the problem or solution. #2.. I "googled" and got here. Hoping for an answer????????

    I've got the similar problem. My camera zooms in automatically and I can't even zoom out.

    My problem is the same though it is not consistent. Sometimes it happens and then some times it does not. I assume it is programming/internal software issue. I just end up holding it at the zoom I like. It is a pain?

Zoom problem


The zoom is stuck. Smack the bottom of the camera with the palm of your hand. Worked like a charm for me.

Zoom


My zoom problem was a combination of the software and hardware when it came to the neutral position for the zoom slider. When the camera is first turned on, if the physical zoom slider (hardware) is in the neutral position (you are not touching it) the camera software does nothing, but if you are pushing the physical zoom slider when you turn on the camera, the software resets the "zero zoom" position into memory. The solution to my problem was to push and hold the physical zoom slider towards the wide position and the software realize reset the "zero zoom" neutral position. This may take a few tries to get it right (if you over compensate, do the opposite and push the slider towards "T" when you turn it on), but I hope this will solve your problem and save you a few bucks.

Zoom button is malfunctioning


tons of people w/ any canon elura series cameras including myself, with a canon elura 80 have the same zoom problem. It does not appear that canon has done anything to try to solve this mass problem with this series of cameras. Oddly enough the only way to solve this problem is to give it a tap and gentle hits near the zoom button to release what would seem to be a jam. Sorry that there's really no straight forward answer, but for now its the best i can give.

Canon Elura 60 zooms by itself


Listen, I know it's a couple of years after this post but, try this: Remove cassette, push to close, close camera as if to use it, hold firmly in left hand, open hand slap it with your right hand once or twice, (I'm not joking) it worked the two times I had this problem. Problems with the zoom? Almost same process, push firmly on zoom button (to un-zoom) try doing this as your tapping it. These are last ditch efforts on an aging camera, it really has been a good one. I've put this poor thing through years of abuse, and it's held up pretty well. Good luck, Jeff S.

Automatically zooming in


Hello:

I contacted Canon about this same issue in my Elura 65, and they said to send it to them, they would have their techs investigate the cause and then contact me with the costs to make the repairs. They said that if I didn't want them to repair the problem, after I found out the cost, that they would reassemble the camera and send it back.

 

Mine is out of warranty, even with buying it at Costco, who doubles the warranty time. In my researching the problem, I have found another person with the same problem who had it repaired for something like $175. I will weigh that against purchasing a newer model.

 

Someone else did reccommend wacking in on the top a few times, shutting if off and turning it back on, and that would often fix the problem. I don't want to take the chance of ruining an important shot that may not come around again, by having to Indian Leg Wrestle my camera to get it to work. Best wishes.
