Question about Canon Elura 100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My canon elura 100 turns on but its stays on the start up screen that say Canon and it will not record--any help is appreciated.
First of all, English is not my natural language, so please forgive me. My canon elura 100, bought in the US 1 year ago, had the same problem. After a big fall (from a second floor), the camera landed in wet sand and after that the camera won't record again (it plays the recorded files just ok). Just today i had the time to check the camera, so i disassemble the camera and found a poorly connected cable, that goes from from the lens body to the motherboard of the camera. After reconnecting this cable the camera start recording again.

Yes, solution #1 works! Thanks!!!
It took me a while to figure this one out but I finally did and mine is back to working perfectly. The problem: The Play option worked fine but the camera did not. When turned to camera mode the blue canon screen would come up and then freeze. The only way to turn it off was to remove the battery.
The fix: I was brave enough to take the entire outer shell off the camera. On the main board, underneath the screen/battery side, all the different parts are connected together. There is a single connector from the lens that had come out of its port. The ribbon connector must have somehow been shaken out of the port at some point. With needle nose pliers I carefully fit the ribbon connector back into the port. I carefully reattached the outer shell and everything was back working!
I will warn you that this task takes some time due to many many screws. It's a lot better than sending it off for hundreds of dollars though.
