There may be a simple explanation. Here are two possible reasons this is happening: * You may have disconnected the power source before turning off the power to your camcorder. If you remove the power source from the camcorder while the power is on, all settings and selections will be erased. Make sure to turn the camcorder's power off before disconnecting the power source. * This is particularly an issue for some early VHS-C camcorders – those with model numbers beginning with a "6" and ending with a "2" or "3" (i.e. CC6xx2 … CC6xx3). These camcorders have a consumer-replaceable clock battery that may be exhausted. If that battery runs dead or is removed and the main battery or AC is not connected, the camcorder will lose all its Date and Time settings. * In some models, the date and time display is designed to do this. When you turn on many VHS-C and digital camcorders, the Auto Date mode will display the time and date. When recording begins, the date is recorded on the tape for 5 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the date will then be replaced with the words AUTO DATE but they will not be recorded. They remain in your viewfinder so that you know this feature is on. On full-size or VHS camcorders, the Auto Date feature is very similar. When you first turn on the camcorder, the date along with the word AUTO and a Clock icon appear in the viewfinder. When recording begins, the date is automatically recorded for 10 seconds and then disappears. In the viewfinder, the Clock icon and the word AUTO remain but they will not be recorded. They remain so that you are aware that this feature is on. When using the Auto Date feature, be aware that the time is only recorded when you first turn on the camcorder and begin a recording session. It does not record each time you press the record button. There are a number of time and date display and recording options. Since these vary by model number, please refer to your owner’s manual for more details.

There is often a small battery inside the unit or accessed from outside that holds the memory that the device was last set. Yours is defaulting to maximum zoom. And in fact it does.

Built-in Clock's Rechargeable Lithium Battery
To store the date/time in memory, the clock's rechargeable
lithium battery is integrated in the camcorder. While the
camcorder is connected to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger, or while the battery pack attached
to the camcorder continues to supply power, the clock's
rechargeable lithium battery is always charged. However,
if the camcorder is not used for approx. 3 months, the
clock's lithium battery will become discharged and the
date/time stored in memory will be lost. When this occurs,
first connect the camcorder to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger for over 24 hours to charge the
clock's rechargeable lithium battery. Then perform the
date/time setting before using the camcorder.
Note that the camcorder can be used without setting the
