Question about Canon ZR200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

9 Answers

Weird sound and no playback

Camera makes a rhythmic revving sound. There is no play back, and because there is no playback, I can't tell if it is recording. The viewfinder on the camera setting works.

In my opinion mini dv mechanism in camera is cooked and needs to be replaced.

You may contact Canon Advisory Support if you get " Remove the Cassette" warning for further support.

Good luck.

Sounds like the recording and playback heads are dirty. When was the last time you cleaned the heads? If you haven't, buy a Video cleaning kit which are cheap these days and run it through a couple of times.
See if that clears it up

    To view playback>>
    As a first step towards resolving your issue, we suggest that you 
    restore the camera's default settings. You can reset all of the menu 
    and button operation settings to default except for Date/Time, Language,
    and Video System. To reset these settings, please follow these steps:

    1. Please remove the AC adapter and main battery.
    2. Please remove the backup battery. It is located behind the main 
    battery.
    3. Please turn the POWER SWITCH to camera, then to PLAY/VCR.
    4. Then please turn the camera off for approximately 1 minute.
    5. Please use a clean pencil eraser to rub the contacts inside the 
    battery compartment and on the battery.
    6. Put both batteries back on the camera.
    7. Connect the camcorder to AC adapter.
    8. Clean the tape compartment with a dry tape head cleaner.

    If the error is not cleared,  send the camcorder 
    in for service."

    You might have to do it twice and put a tape to try and record before it works perfectly. It worked for me so hopefully it works for you.

This most likely has to do with the motors or the head. Either way your camera will require professional service. Follow this link to locate the nearest authorized service center:

First, make sure you're recording sound. In the Shooting Menu, check Movie settings/Sound and make sure it's turned on.

Then, while playing back a video, press zoom-in (the magnifying glass icon) to increase the volume.

Video was recorded with volume but no sound on playback


Be sure that the camera is able to record with sound. When you mean no sound during playback are you talking about playback thru the camera or playback on computer after you download it. Be sure that your camera has a speaker on it to play sound back or that the volume playback is turned up. Also, to help with your situation a little better when asking for help list the model number and manufacture when ever possible. It will help with lengthy feedbacks.

Movie pictures can be played back with the camera, but not sound. However, when the camera is connected to a TV, both movie pictures and sound can be played back. For playing back movie pictures or sound on a PC, the QuickTime™ 4 is required.
