Question about Canon ZR70MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When in recording mode, the LCD screen is all blacked out and hence I am not able to do the recording. When in playback mode, the blue screen appears with all the details but nothing gets played. a blinking message 'COLOR M.' appears on the screen when in play mode. Is it something about the settings problem?? Does the message 'COLOR M.' provide any help about troubleshooting the problem??
I just called Canon and they said that it is a known problem and they will pay for you to send it in and see what the problem is! If it is this chip that they have found to go bad then they will fix it for free but if not they will give you an estimate on what it will cost to fix it. I know it is the chip issue because when I called the support person told me that it is a problem they have frequently had that is why they are fixing them for free! Hope this helps!
