Question about Canon DC100 DVD Camcorder

2 Answers

No disc I've had my canon dc100 camera since november 06, and it was working great for a while. Although now it says that there isn't a disc in it when I know there is. I've tried going to the menu and messing around with it. I've tried turning it on and off, I've tried removing the disc, I've tried putting in a new disc. Although as you might have guessed, none helped. If any of you have had problems like this, let me know what you did, I could really use the help.

Re: no disc

Some DVD's aren't compatable with the DC100 they must be the DVD minus and moisture can also cause this but Call Cannon Support 800-828-4040 they have a 1 year factory warranty & will repair without charge if it is a defect

Power light and record light come on, but nothing works. disc cover cannot be opened either.

This just happened to our DC100 Canon yesterday during my son's 3rd bday party. I went to put in a new disc and then all that happened. Did you ever find out what caused it or if it can be fixed?

I just bought new discs for my Canon DC100. The

It's possible that, for some reason, the disks aren't compatible. It can almost drive you crazy trying to figure out why. To find out for sure if this is the case, try some new Panasonic discs, with the same specifications as the old ones that worked, and see if they work. If they don't work, you're probably having a dvr issue with the laser lens or related parts within the camera. There are many issues with dvrs that develop over time, requiring replacement parts and service. In those cases, it's usually better to get a replacement camcorder. The new HDD camcorders are immune from a lot of problems inherent with dvr and tape recorders.

No disc read on dc100

There are only 4 possible solutions,

1. Dirty or faulty discs, but as you've tried different discs this doesn't seem likely.

2. Condensation has developed in the camcorder, leave it in a dry indoor temperatured place for a couple of hours and try again.

3. Dirty lens won't let the laser read the disc. Look for lens cleaning camcorderkit in a store.

4. Manufacturing error

Hope this will help you.
