Question about Canon ZR800 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Video camera will not accept the tape

Hi, first i want you to know that the camera was not dropped/forced or anything improperly--I was replacing a full tape and when I put the next tape in (the small ones) it will not accept it, after a few seconds it will beep several times ---the strange part is that the part that holds the tape will go back in when its empty. I have tried several different tapes/and it is fully charged, I even tried it plugged in to the wall. I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks

canon --the rest of the numbers/letters are NTSC ZR85 in case that helps

Canon zr700 won't play tape


That is the pinch roller. If it does not press the tape against the capstan, then the tape will not pass the read/write heads. Replace it.

Sound dropout


hi, the problem could be because of the problem with the pinch roller ,either it has some wear or the supporting spindle needle has some improper orientation. Is this with a specific tape or all tapes? if it is specific to a tape then it can be because you kept the recorded tape near magnet which causes this rythmic sound drop out. i guess the first one may be mostly happened. all the best sreejith

According to the symptom and self diagnostic system the problem is in mechanical section (tape loading section) Therefore camera just need mechanical adjustment and will work fine again. This problem aries when the insertion of the cassette is improper or forced insertion.
Thanks for using fixya.

Accept the video tape


The unit may be locked due to the head needing cleaning. Try removing the battery for 30 minutes or so and then resetting it.
