Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Gotta CanonHi8ES8000VA vid-recorder/repairload mechanism advice!

\015 Good afternoon. I'm WILLIAM, and really need some advice quickly. I have a Canon Hi8 ES8000VA video recorder, manufacture tag 91003728, which has been dropped twice in the last few years, once resulting in about a $175.00 repair bill, but since it was dropped AGAIN, the cassette loader is not seated correctly\342\200\224tapes will not usually load but be rejected as door mechanism is out of alignment, also resulting in failure of proper tape/player head engagement. As well, the battery tends to float around depending on orientation of camera, so it's constantly disconnecting.Is there a simple solution before I start dismantling the recorder and is there a free source for Canon repair schematics? I'm NOT a mechanical cripple but would greatly appreciate advice and reference info for manual ASAP. Perhaps there are a few busted or missing parts that I am not aware of. Thank you for your attention. William\015

Answers :

Hello William. Unless you are anxious to spend a lot of money on this camera I strongly recommend that you put this one in a museum and shop for a new one. You will find the cost of another repair to be prohibitive plus the new ones are much higher quality, lighter, and just better all around.

I have a DMC-TZ5. The lens cover mechanism ("barrier") has become "sticky," and now requires an occasional very gentle tap to get open when the camera is turned on. The problem is intermittent and not predictable. The mechanism has NOT been bent or otherwise injured. I have been careful not to damage it. Any suggestions for getting it to work correctly. I've tried flushing out the mechanism with compressed air and that hasn't solved it.


Hi,\015\012\015\012The internal mechanism is stuck and causing this problem. You can't do anything from your end. You need to take to service center to get it repaired.\015\012\015\012Hope this helps.\015\012\015\ ... Digital Cameras

The automatic slide changer mechanism on this Rollei P37 Autofocus slide projector has very old grease that has become very sticky so that the auto-change mechanism keeps sticking. Please can you advise me a) what to clean it with and b) what to lubricate it with once it's clean. The gear wheel is plastic with plastic teeth interfacing with a steel gear shaft. Thanks

Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks
