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.

Zoom malfunction


I had exactly the same problem. You just need to smash once with your hand on the bottom of your camera (it looks that this works for all canon cameras).

Zoom problem


I have the same problem. I hoped it was down to the zoom button on the top of the camera. I dismantled it and eventually got to the button but couldn't find anything loose/damaged or needing cleaned.

Did you ever find a solution?

Stopping the Zoom


Usually when this happens, the control itself has failed. Repair requires replacing the entire top operation assembly in which the zoom is contained. I wish that there was another solution, but I have replaced many of these for this problem. If you have an interest in how to obtain the part let me know. Good Luck, magic seadog
