Question about Canon Elura 85 DV Digital Camcorder
I have read the manual but i didn't find anything that could help me in there?
Hit the door when the camera is turned off, you might have to whack it a few times but it works, the problem is there is a short in the wiring in the door, will cost about 250 bucks to fix or you can "love" tap the door a few times and save your money.

SOURCE: i need help!
i had the same problem, i shut the camera off, hit the cassette door a few times (not kidding) and when i turned it on it was fixed. the zoom bar will not show on the camera screen, but it won't keep zooming in by itself!! i had gotten this advice from people who had a similiar problem with the elura 60's models, must be a problem across the board.

Tips for a great answer:
This is most likely a defective zoom rocker switch assembly. This will require major disassembly to repair and can usually be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
