Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When i turn on in camera mode I get lines on either viewer and you can not see objects or anything. However, if I go to play mode and play something already taped it works great and crystal clear picture. Any idea what could be wrong plz Thanks,
Get a new battery.

I had a similar thing happen to me...the video would not come one when I turned it on, but the audio would work, and it would play back tape fine. I happened upon the following solution (though I don't know how long it will last). I charged the camera, and then noticed it worked fine when the charger was plugged in. As soon as I unplugged it, the video would go black. So...I plugged it in, turned it to record, and unplugged it, and it worked! Almost like something got reset. I have no idea how long this will last, or if it means the battery is going...but, give it a try!

Tips for a great answer:
Sometimes the sensors go out and will need repair. This is often the case when there is no video when in record mode, but it does show video for playback. (I recently had a similar problem with my video camera, - where the lens and sensors were fried - and I called Sony to arrange for repairs,)
The number as listed on the Sony website: Priority Service Line (for U.S. only): 239-768-7547. Once through the maze of recorded menu options, and you get to Camcorder Repair service department, they will help you very efficiently. They will give you a cost estimate, and the information how to send it for repairs. On mine they are also refurbishing it so it will be in like-new condition and ready for many more years of great service - making it well worth the repair cost.
