Question about Canon ZR700 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My canon zr700 will not turn on. I tried to plug it in w/o the battery attached b/c the manual says it will work like that. It did not. The charge light will not come on at all. I used it in may at my son's high school graduation without any problems. I thought it might be the power cord, but it should still work with one of the batteries. I have two batteries, I think at least one of them should work. When I push the button to eject the tape it will not work also.
SOURCE: Tape won't come out!
I had the exact same problem, and just by dumb luck, I managed to get the tape compartment to pop open after trying hundreds of things. Maybe this will work for you too...who knows??? What I did was to first remove the battery and AC power to "reset" the camera (I guess). I then put the battery back in place and WHILE HOLDING THE CAMERA IN THE UPRIGHT (AS IF USING THE CAMERA FOR VIDEO) POSITION, I pushed the "Open/Eject" latch. VIOLA!!! Like I said, it may be dumb luck, but I haven't had the problem again. It may be that gravity helped to take the stress off the ejecting mechanism...dunno???? BTW, when I was having the problem, the mechanism would "click" 3 or 4 times while trying to move the tape out. Good luck!!! I hope this helps someone!

THIS SOUNDS LIKE MAYBE A DIRTY HEAD.. OR A LOOSE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE LCD AND DAUGHTER BOARD.. MOST LIKELY A DIRTY HEAD, TRY A CLEANING CASSETTE

Thank you very much for this solution posting. Really it worked. I was about to buy another one instead of fixing the problem. Because you know how the pain is, to send it factory and getting it repaired.
Once again Thank you.

SOURCE: The tape will not eject.
It's EXTREMELY tricky and runs the risk of causing further damage. I strongly suggest finding a local service center to perform work of that nature.

Sounds like something is jammed in the tape carriage
Call canon and send it in for sevice.There is no tip or trick for carriage jamming issues
