Question about Canon Elura 100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Quick question, if you can help me

I too have the same model. But my problem is slightly different. The camcorder was fall down on floor by mistake and now the charge light does not come up at all. Neither the battery get charged up.
I suspect the D.Effect button is not working and there is some problem with the memory card - as it shows some error everytime I start the recorder. Tried whatever I could with the remaining battery - not sure what should I do next.

Hello Tusharz,

I guess..some connector that connects to the charging module and memory card slot must have come off becuase of the drop.

The camera has to be dismantled and probably the connector should be put(seated) back in place.

Let me know where you live

How to use video camera and tips


If you've never shot video on a camcorder shooting your first video can be a little intimidating. Many first time camcorder users make mistakes that make their video for the most part unwatchable. Here are some basic camcorder shooting tips that can help you shoot fantastic videos every time you take out your camcorder.

Watch the Zoom

In general when you shoot a video you want to limit the amount of time you zoom in and out.
Many new camcorder users will zoom in and out constantly with their camcorder. Video shot in this manner usually ends up making viewers nauseous with the constant movement. Using the zoom on your camcorder is a good idea, but try to only use the feature when you need it. A good slow steady zoom into a subject is also usually much nicer to watch than a quick zoom in to a subject.
Most camcorders have both optical and digital zoom. The digital zoom on your camcorder only enlarges the individual pixels in your video rather than getting closer to your subject. The result? Most video shot with a digital zoom looks distorted often to the point that the viewer has no idea what they're even looking at. If you have a digital zoom on your camcorder you want to use it as little as possible. It can be a good idea to even disable your digital zoom so you don't accidentally use it while recording. This is a simple camcorder tip that drastically increase the quality of your video.

Bring a Tripod

Chances are you have seen video recorded by someone who did not have a tripod. Handheld video usually looks great for the first few minutes, then as the person recording the video gets tired the video starts to look worse. You naturally move up and down slightly when you breathe, if your holding a camcorder then that motion is exaggerated on video and can make it look like you were jumping up and down while holding your camcorder.
Along those same lines, if you are shooting a video handheld then you want to make sure the image stabilization on your camcorder in enabled. Image stabilization will help even out the movements your camcorder makes and minimize shaking in your finished video.

Skip The Special Effects

Most camcorders now will come with some effects built in. While things like wipes and fades can be great things to add to your finished video it is better to add them in a video editing program instead of to your raw video. Whatever effects you do to your video when you shoot it you are stuck with forever. For instance if you shoot your child's birthday party in black and white, then you'll never have the option to watch it in color. If you add the back and white in a video editing program then if you decide you'd like it in color after all you can simply take the effect off.

Turn On The Lights

Camcorders typically have a difficult time recording video in darker areas. Camcorders will typically make video shot in dim areas look as though it was shot in complete darkness. If you have the ability to turn on more lights where you are, do it. the brighter the area you are recording the better. White balancing your camcorder can also help your camcorder record in different lighting conditions.
White balancing should be done when ever you change lighting conditions or rooms with your camcorder.

Get a Microphone

Most built-in camcorder microphones are pretty messup when it comes to recording audio. If you have a place to plug one into your camcorder, consider purchasing a small lavaliere microphone. A lavaliere microphone is a small microphone that will clip onto your subjects clothing and can make your audio sound much better. Lavaliere microphones can usually be purchased rather inexpensively and are well worth the investment for the quality they can give your video.

Shoot Extra Video

In most camcorders it will take a few seconds for your camcorder to start recording after you press the record button. For that reason give yourself a second or two after you start recording to have a subject start talking or an event to begin. Likewise, give yourself a few seconds after an event ends before you stop recording. It is much better to have too much video and edit out the pieces that you don't want than have too little at the end of the day.
If you've never shot video on a camcorder shooting your first video can be a little intimidating. Many first time camcorder users make mistakes that make their video for the most part unwatchable. Here are some basic camcorder shooting tips that can help you shoot fantastic videos every time you take out your camcorder.

Nail won't set to allow tongue to enter groove


Your nailer has variable sized plates /shoes bolted to the bottom. I believe that there are about three different thickness available. Take a look at the link below for a parts list showing the sizes available. For a quick fix to drive the cleat deeper, use a thinner bumper below the head of where you strike the nailer. If you manually push down the striker, you can see how much of the driver comes out the bottom. The bumper below the head (black rubber washer) cushions the striker against the body of the nailer. A thinner bumper (you must be creative here) will allow the driver to extend out slightly more. Good luck with your flooring projects.

Have model number FV4BNB006 air handler and condensate is not running down the coils and into the drip pan. It is falling directly on to the filter and into the air box creating a large water issue.


Be sure the unit is tilted slightly to the rear and that the back drain
is clear. Also the floor of the unit should be clear of sludge,etc.
so the water can drain from front to rear and out the drain.

IMovie and Canon ZR500 no image


I have a slightly different but related model of Canon camera. I have found that if you erroneously power it on in "camera" mode instead of "playback" mode, you get the symptoms you describe: you can control the camera with iMovie, but you can't get any video out of it. Make sure you have the power switch in "playback" position -- it's an easy mistake to make.

Canon es900 8mm camcorder won't allow tape insertion


Canon ES series camcorder was designed with 1000 hour capacitors on the processor boards. When the time comes these capaictors loose value and create problems for the main computer to communicate with other mechanical system in the camcorder. We were able to service well 7 years ago but the life of these component has aged too much to make it good anymore. I wish I have a better news for you but the success repair on 'ES model is very slim and if repaired, the labor charge may run many times over of the value of this camcorder. You can probably obtain a newer used camcorder at decent price and get all you tapes into DVD quick. Good luck -James

Display is black even after removing the lens cap


See my post of before. I just knocked the camera on the floor by mistake and it miraculously started working again after years. Shows it must be mechanical and not related to software.

C:32:11 message flashes, cassette eject won't work, camera doesn't work


Just had this problem myself... called Sony. Here is what I did to fix this:

1. Turn off power
2. Open the LCD Display
3. Press "Reset" with paperclip/pen
4. Unplug ANY wires connected to the camcorder
5. Eject battery
6. Plug in DC charger
7. Power on
8. Attempt to eject tape
9. At this point, the metal tape holder comes out but refuses to open... slightly "close" the portion of the camcorder that has the button to eject the tape, and then open it fully again (you'll hear a click, this signals the device that the 'hatch' is open and to eject).
10. The metal door *should* pop out and allow you to withdraw the tape.

I've tried 4 different cassettes and about 2 seconds after hitting play, I get the error every time... my solution: Not going to try to play my tapes on the camcorder anymore... will find another player to play Hi8 MP cassettes. Unknown if able to record to tape as of yet.
