Check that the cap is not on, and camera is not in pc mode. Probably it is a lens fault.

My digital video camcorder mv700 displays a black screen on record mode.now when operating in play mode it displays no card.please inform me of nearest service canon centre.


Have you accidentally switched on the view-finder? In this case the LCD screen will automatically switch off (usually to save battery power)

Also have you accidentally switched your camera to still-shot camera mode, or something else, so the camera asks for the memory card in playback?

Wont record anything to MiniDV tape and A/D randomly working


Hello,

Sorry about delayed reply as I just saw it.

Its known problem of ccd imager in Canon ZR85 camcorder and ccd imager needs to be replaced.

Canon will repair your camcorder free of cost as per announced scheme for ccd imager issue.

Click Canon CCD Advisory for details, how to get free repair.

Regarding can't see picture or time code in playback, it is problem of dirty / clogged video heads. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette to clean heads and hope camera will show playback picture.

Good luck.

Can't get my Cannon zr 90 to work, there's a flashing red light in viewer


yes, I found the manual downloads on Canon's webpage. I wish I could figure out how to transfer my tape videos to a computer. I bought the $50,00 DV-1394 cord and nothing happens--computer doesn't recognize the camera.

Camera mode recording/displaying right


what is the model number? if it's 10 years or older you are most likely dealing with bad surface mounted capacitors.
