I have 2 L&M Mako Bluefin HD housings for the Sony HC7 camcorder -both cameras function perfectly out of the housings, and when inserted, will power up in video & photo modes, but the buttons for all the other functions on the handles will no longer work on either housing. The batteries in the handles have been replaced, and the cameras are programmed properly. Would appreciate any help/suggestions or recommendations for service.

Argh, frustrating! Sounds to me like an alignment problem. A button is getting pushed somewhere and interrupting the proper functioning of the commands.

It might be worth trying to recreate this out of the housing. See if you can push a button and recreate the problem you are finding. This would then indicate which control on the housing is creating a pressure on a button. Maybe then you can then adjust it very slightly to ease the pressure?

All the controls are electronic, not manual -and I think you are correct in that one simple thing is screwing up the works.

I once had a Bluefin and was able to run the CX505VE and the HC7 camcorder with this housing. All i had to do, press zoom in&out  together (i guess it was these buttons) for 3 or 5 seconds to change the electronics for the appropiate camcorder i liked to use. I hope this helps!
