I would guess that ur battery is bad and will not hold a charge. Try a new battery and see if that fixes it.

Canon Optura 60 will not turn on, No lights when plugged in.Dead


never buy a canon. i have the same issue and it is not easy to fix. i dissasembled the thing already but too complicated. the lithium memory battery inside too is non user replaceable as it is illustrated in the manual. you got to have it serviced to replace it because that small battery is soldered. poor buyers....

Canon Elura 60 won't power up


The same thing happened to mine soon after I got it. Turned out the plug I was using to plug it into the wall to charge had gone bad. The replacement was over $100 so I went with a (cheaper) wall battery charger that you conect the battery to.

Cannon zr65


I had the same problem. I called Canon at (800) 828-4040 and told them my problem. In two days they emailed me a UPS label and a form to fill out. In two weeks they sent the camera back and it's working. They paid for delivery (both ways) and fixed my camera free.

Canon ZR65 camcorder issues


The CCD is not involved with playback, only the read heads. Your CCD could indeed be faulty. If the audio failed, it likely has circuit board issues which may affect the CCD even though it is working.

Power cord and battery's support NO power to Video Camera


This incident happens often and damages the camcorder's power board. Replacing power board and some adjustment should resolved the problem. Your cost may run from $175-$225 in US for this model. Whenever you are transfering and connecting to pc, it is recommended to connect AC adapter power for this. Do not rely on a charged battery. Good luck.

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!
