Question about Canon Elura 70 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I've seen several reports with zoom in being stuck and cassettes cannot load. My camera worked for quite a while, at least a couple of years. First the cassette problem, so I just used it with the memory disk. Then camera automatically zooms in. It's unusable. Called canon, and they told me like everyone else to send it in.
I guess my question is: is canon responsible for replacing the camera with this obvious defect?
Any way to fix this on my own?
Yep, banging the bottom worked like a charm! Who would have thought? Thanks

Bizarre, but this really does work! I couldn't fix our Elura 70 for over two months - the zoom was stuck on tight focus. I stumbled onto this site, figured I had nothing to lose, banged the camcorder against my palm, and the problem is GONE! It works! Thanks FixYa and all the responders.

Same here!!! been bugged by this bug fr nearly two years,,, been getting progressively more of a problem. Haven't been able to use it for last few months now (lots of missed opportunities of the kids) - the battery thing worked for a while, but then stopped.
Banged it hard today (before trying the tip f unscrewing the door) and it works!!!

I thought your suggestion to bang the bottom of the camera was pretty funny and was nervous to try it, but after a couple gentle slams on my hand, it fixed the problem! thanks so much!!! =)

For the zoom problem bang the bottom of the camera on your hand, or if that doesn't work on a desk.
