    I have the exact same problem

  • Anonymous Jun 08, 2008

    zoom operates automatically and there seems to be no easy woy to turn it off. Is this a feature or error?

    My Canon zr600 is zooming by itself when I try to preview pictures or take video. I take it this is because the zoom lever is off calibration or broken due to poor storage. Now I need to find someone to fix it.

The zoom assembly will need to be replaced. This repair should be done by an experienced technician. Unfortunately, there is no easy fix that you can do yourself.

Hope this helps you.

HF10 zoom goes without any explicit request


My HF10 started to mysteriously autozoom as well, and I had made no setup changes. I don't have exactly the same symptoms as you describe except that it would begin to zoom when I didn't want it to. I noticed the [I.AF] (Instant AutoFocus) icon, so I went into the menu (Camera Setup - AF Mode) and turned the "Instant AF" to "Normal AF". After that, the autozoom seemed to have stopped. I set it back to "Instant AF" and it did not autozoom again. I wouldn't know how to turn the autozoom back on again even if I wanted to, but thankfully it appears to be gone now. Hopefully it will stay in manual zoom mode. Hope that helps.

Flaky zoom


Are you are sure that the problem is in the lever?

If it is so, I have a solution!

We used to play that trick on the old Machine of 80-90s. Just put 1-2 drop of kerosin oil into the contact of the lever after opening that for a while.

Thats all.

Play that lever for number of times before turn that on.

You will get benefit for at least 1 year!

You can use non lubricated machine oil instade of kerosin oil also!

Hope for the best!
