    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.

Turn on digital zoom

Turn the zoom lever toward the single-tree symbol and hold it until it zooms all the way. Release the lever then turn it toward the single-tree symbol again to engage the digital zoom.

Full details are in the "Zooming in More Closely on Subjects (Digital Zoom)" section beginning on page 60 of the manual.

The zoom lever is not working moves but doesnt change

If the zoom lever is not working then I would recommend buying a new pair without a zooming mechanism. Zoom binoculars are more trouble than they are worth. Sorry!

  • images become coarser the more they are digitally zoomed.

IF this fails, your camera is in need of service.

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!

Zoom lever (Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera ) does not work

If you can get to the ribbon cable that the zoom lever is attached to, you can use a multimeter or a continuity tester to see if the lever is actually shorting any traces on the ribbon. the zoom lever acts upon a motor that rotates the iner lens barrel, possible the motor lead is open or the switch under the lever is dirty/faulty.
