Question about Canon Elura 60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Elura 60 doesn't take still pictures

Hi,


Our Elura 60 stopped taking still pictures. Pressing the photo button makes no sound and does nothing.

I noticed the remote control icon and turned it off. Now I see the REMOTE OFF icon constantly on the screen, but still - no still.

Another icon that appears constantly is the shake control icon. Even when the camera stands still on the table...

Any clue? Have I messed up with any settings?


Thanks in advance,


Noam.

I had a similar problem with zoom being stuck and also not being able to take a still. I tried the suggestion of whacking it in the area of the zoom and photo button and it started working.

I just tapped it with two fingers. Sounds odd but it worked. good luck

I have a Samsung Monte. Pressing *#0*# only helps us to use the front cam as a mirror n nothing else... Can't click photos wid the front camera. Plzzzz help


Hi,

The front camera in Monte is only useful for live chat on yahoo and skype and other such social networking sites when you are on 3G only.

Never heard about taking pics from the front camera. I am sure it is not used for taking pictures.

Take pictures from your main camera thats better.

Pls rate my suggestion.

Regards,

Richee

Canon Elura 60 won't power up


The same thing happened to mine soon after I got it. Turned out the plug I was using to plug it into the wall to charge had gone bad. The replacement was over $100 so I went with a (cheaper) wall battery charger that you conect the battery to.

3 photos taken when pressing button once.


It sounds like the camera was in "burst mode." This allows the camera to take several pictures at a time, and is useful in situations in which the object of your photos is in motion. To turn this on or off, go into the menu and look for something that says burst mode. You may also see an icon that looks like a rectangle with two other rectangles behind it. This is the same setting.

Automatically zooming in


Hello:

I contacted Canon about this same issue in my Elura 65, and they said to send it to them, they would have their techs investigate the cause and then contact me with the costs to make the repairs. They said that if I didn't want them to repair the problem, after I found out the cost, that they would reassemble the camera and send it back.

 

Mine is out of warranty, even with buying it at Costco, who doubles the warranty time. In my researching the problem, I have found another person with the same problem who had it repaired for something like $175. I will weigh that against purchasing a newer model.

 

Someone else did reccommend wacking in on the top a few times, shutting if off and turning it back on, and that would often fix the problem. I don't want to take the chance of ruining an important shot that may not come around again, by having to Indian Leg Wrestle my camera to get it to work. Best wishes.

Taking still photos


This is a service issue involving the replacement of the zoom operation assembly which contains several buttons and functions manufactured with a preformed flexible printed board all connected together. Canon fixes this for about $130.00 total. You can find service info at www.canonusa.com. Good luck, magic seadog

Camera will not charge


If you know someone who has electrical testing equipment, they can test the charger to see if it is still putting out a charge. I doubt it is the battery because you said the charge light doesn't light when the unit is plugged in. Other than that, sounds like a bad component inside. Get it checked by a pro because you can get zapped or ruin something by poking around inside if you don't know what you are doing.

Record button doesn't function


You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well. Good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
