Question about Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Cannon ZR60 lines on screen and in viewfinder

Our camera has been working great, but just today we had a problem. We tried to playback and nothing was on the screen (not even black, just blue). We realized the battery was low so we plugged it in to charge.

Now it is playing back, but with multi-coloured lines (red and green) across the screen. I haven't tried plugging it into the t.v. to see if it's on that too because I need to wait for the battery to charge.

Any suggestions please? (This is our second cannon-we really liked the first and this one we've only had a short time.)

Thanks!

I purchased a dry head cleaning tape and used that. I followed the instructions and now it is fine :)

I have the PS S500. It will not take pictures now, it flashes, but there is nothing on the playback. In fact, when I look at the image before taking a pic, there is nothing there. Sort of like there is...


is the screen displaying anything at all? if not have you tried looking into the viewfinder? occasionally cameras with viewfinders will display pictures on in the viewfinder and not the screen.
Try taking a photo and then check to see if the photo is there on a computer.
other than this, the camera unit inside the camera may have become damaged or detached, it this is the case, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do

Not able to view anything on screen


I work on this model of samsung the lcd problem is a common thing with this camera
The ribbon cable to the lcd from the camera cracks and causes what you are talking about .
Normally the camera will still work buy using the eye viewfinder for recording and playback but you will not hear the sound unless the lcd door is open but then the picture in the viewfinder goes away when this door is open and comes back when it is closed
my email is spinboss@comcast.net and sell on ebay as uromastyx

My cannon ixus 70 shows nothing on the screen in picture taking mode but when i take a piture then put it into view mode it can be seen?


Mine too! Screen works fine in video mode as well. Love my camera and dont want to replace it (have been using the traditional viewfinder), but repair too expensive.

All ideas welcome.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40


You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.

No picture during playback


Only thing I can think is the tape may be blank. :) GOOD LUCK

Grainy Playback


1. Starting at http://www.canondv.com/zr60/ I read it has a digital zoom. You will find that such to be less useful that one expects. 2. Low light levels can result in more graininess. "Recommended illumination: More than 100 lx" Notice that 100 lux is pretty bright. Try 200 lux. 3. I must ask this: Did it ever work? 4. From the specs: "Image sensor: 1/6" CCD (charge coupled device) approx. 680,000 pixels (approx. 340,000 effective pixels-tape)" 340,000 pixels is OK for common video work, but today's consumers might compare a frame to some multimegapixel camera. This is just 0.34 megapixels, so grain may indeed show as you blow it up.
