Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Suddenly recording to tape doesnt work on my Canon ZR 85 . I can see the video through the viewfinder and the screen and it says recording but nothing gets recorded on the MiniDV tape. When I rewind the tape , no timecode is present and I only see a blue screen.
Also Analog to Digital pass trough conversion is also randomly working. I initially thought it was a cable problem but another AV cable also does not work . Sometimes the AV video is shown on the screen and then suddenly after some time , it disappears , and is then replaced by the blue screen. Sometimes works for a minute or 2 before it disappears.
Sorry about delayed reply as I just saw it.
Its known problem of ccd imager in Canon ZR85 camcorder and ccd imager needs to be replaced.

Regarding can't see picture or time code in playback, it is problem of dirty / clogged video heads. Use good quality video head cleaning cassette to clean heads and hope camera will show playback picture.
