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.

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.

Usually, it’s a faulty zoom switch inside the camera's lens grip.

Canon fs100 zooms in by its self while i am videoing.i have to hold zoom toggle to zoom out position to stop it zooming in by its self


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.

I wanted to transfer some pictures onto my computer, but my computer wont read it. My camera charges and it works fine but when i go to "my computer" my camera won't show up on there. please...


I am not sure how new/old your camera is but when I had that problem I had to re-install the Kodak software that came with my camera. It worked fine after that. My new Kodak i just bought-(of which i am not a fan of Kodak but had to go cheap when looking for a long zoom) worked right away without installing anything-it didn't come with a disk either; however; it showed up in the My Pictures section not the My computer..so maybe check there...best of luck

Zoom will not work at all


If you decide to open your camera, here's a pictorial disassembly. Don't go any further than popping the top off to examine components in the vicinity of the zoom lever. Look for anything different than what's showing in the picture. Usually the zoom lever and switch gets gunked up with dust and debris that can easily be cleaned off. Use the pictures on page 2 of this website as a guide :

And keep in mind there's a potential for electrical shock. Read this first before you turn any screws:

The SMART ZOOM is not working - doesnt either come up in SET UP menu?


I fixed my problem myself. Simply read the top of the camera1.gif where it says TO USE SMART ZOOM SET IMAGE SIZE TO LESS THAN 2.8M
Then go to the very bottom button on your camera (there are three) and press it and reset your image size.Then your zoom will work.
Problem solved.
