Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV330 Digital Camcorder
TRV330 slowley zooms to wide.I zoom it back to close but as soon as I take my finger off the zoom button or the remote control, it zooms back to wide. Sometimes flipping the zoom button on the camera will stop it from zooming to wide.Several times shutting the camera off then back on stopped the zooming. Sometimes nothing I do will stop it, and it just stops by itself. Sometimes the zoom just won't work, with the camera zoom button or the remote control. Unpluging the remote has no effect. Several times I removed the battery and put it back in and it stopped. Is this a hardware problem in the zoom button contacts or a solid state device problem?What kind of cost for repair should I expect? Will the entire flexible PC board have to be replaced, or can a component be repaired?
Unfortunately, the board is not available for sale. This kind of repair is only undertaken at a service center. You could however, try to buy a second hand piece from say Ebay, and try from there..But the only option apart from a second hand purchase would be a service call..

Sounds like the button is connecting or not springing back like it should. You should be able just to replace the zoom button and just would need to rewire and reconnect it to the camera. The manufacturer should be able to send you a new button. The pieces are so small in cameras, that one piece can easily break off. Let me know of any further questions that you may have on this

More then a problem with the main board, or with zooms gears it looks like a problem with buttons.
If you have already taken apart the camera, grab a multimeter and thest the output from button board. I am sure on one contact you will find some continuos voltage that is what activates the zoom.
