Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Took the camcorder to record my sons race last week and all I got on the viewer were colored vertical lines. I could see motion, so it was in record mode, but would not give me a clear picture. (This also ended up on the tape when I played it back.) Thoughts?
I'm positive the camera needs to be cleaned. The recording heads sound like they are dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there, whether it's new or not. Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. The tape actually rubs the recording heads so you only want to do it for a short time to avoid damage. Let me know how it goes.

Tips for a great answer:
Sounds like a sensor problem - which happened recently to one of my own video cameras Called Sony, and they are replacing the lens and sensors and refurbishing the camera to like-new condition. Here is 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. Hope this helps.
