It's always sad when one of our beloved friends dies. I can't speak to your specific problem because I've never had a power issue, but I can say with confidence that it's almost never worth it to pay Canon's minimum service price.

I couldn't be happier with my Sony replacement with built in projector, but still have my canon sitting in a drawer as a backup in case I ever come across a zoom switch. Please let me know if you decide to upgrade to a newer model and want to sell your old one for parts.

How would a Pan HC-V550 and a 750 compare to the HF100? Looking to upgrade and like the small size of my HF100. The 750 is nice but it's huge. Not sure how much better if any the 550 will be over my HF100.

Thanks!

Hey Simboo,

I have a non working HF 10....
Will turn on but camera function won't work. But you can see what what filmed.
So I have a zoom switch assuming no one can tell how to fix the camera.
I would pay a reasonable fee to fix camera but I know that is unlikely.

Hey Videoguy,

Good luck getting it repaired. If you don't find a way to fix it at a reasonable price let me know and we'll see if I can take that zoom switch and its fancy housing off your hands.

I have a Canon VIXIA HF300and it looks like I have a similar problem. The power constantly cycles on/off when the SD Card is installed and the lid closed. Open the lid but leave the SD card in, the unit works fine except for the fact that you can't record anything because the lid is flipped up.

Help ?

I went to my local camera shop and today we mailed The Vixia in to Canon I assume and I'm waiting to hear what the problem is. I will post whatever we find out.
If it is too expensive to repair I'll offer it up for parts.

Thanks,
Al

Hey all, it's all gone quiet here.

My HF100 is about to be let go to ebay. I have decided to pull the trigger on a Panasonic FZ1000 and go play with some 4k.

It'll be a shame, but it's time to move on.

Hello, I'm new to this board so I apologize if this is not the correct area to post this.

But, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get replacement parts for the Canon Vixia HF10.

I am specifically looking for the cover that goes over the top of the Advanced Mini Shoe.

Had borrowed the camera to family and got it back to find it cracked, and now half of it is missing.

I appreciate any help, or being pointed towards a direction that might help me find this.
Thanks everyone

I've had my Vixia HF100 for 5+ years, a little bit of the zoom problem has been seen, I just have to watch it and keep a little pressure on the side of the zoom lever.


Now to my question. Inside the battery compartment is a small door, below the reset hole, held on by some sort of stickiness and behind it is a plug. Does any one know what that plug is for?

Any HF10 lurkers still in here? =) I have a serious problem and could really use some help! After just recently having my backup drive bite the bullet, I dug out my trusty old HF10 and was elated to see all of my old home movies still sitting on there from many years ago when the kids were much younger. When I try to transfer the videos over to an SD card from the built in memory, I'm getting a "Failed: Process terminated with error" message. Even worse, while I can still see every thumbnail for each video, when I try to play one back it seems to think for a while (flashing red LED) but then only plays the most recent video on the device. I'm worried that for some reason, while I can still see the videos, they might be damaged or corrupted. Any ideas? Some personally priceless videos on here, so I'd like to whatever I can to try and save them.
