I can record and see it recording but i can not view my recording. At first the tape wouldnt eject but i was online and i went to troubleshoot for the cannon mini dv camcorder zr200 and it told me to tap the side a few times and i was able to get the tape out, but it still will not show i've only had it for about a year. I even bought a dv head cleaner that still didn't work. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

1. Connect the camcorder to a TV and check if you can playsee the tape.
2. Take that tape and check it using another miniDV camcorder.

this way you will know if the issue is within the camcorder or the tape.
If is within the camcorder .. take it to a service dealer and see how much is to fix it. Chances are that is not worth to be fix. A brand new ZR900 is just 200 USD ...

SOURCE: Canon ZR200 mini DV Digital camcorder power is not coming.

First thing, clean your battery contacts, both on the battery, and on the camcorder. Make sure the battery is charged fully (measure it if you have a voltmeter). Make sure your power adapter is putting out voltage (again, measure it if you can) Try a spare battery, if you have one, to make sure the first one isn't just dead. Other than those things, you could have a faulty or broken power switch on the unit. That's about all I can think of offhand.

When i put a tape in it ejects it..then a tape with a slash appears on the screen


you are prohibited from recording on thips tape. This is because the red tab on the side of the tape that faces you when you are inserting the tape inside the camera has been put in 'SAVE' position . to be able to record o the tape you need to use your fingernail to slide the red tab to the 'REC' position.

Ive extracted the following article for you from wilkepedia to help you understand this issue:
Tape and recording protection
250px-8mm_cassette_erase_tab.jpg magnify-clip.pngThe write-protect switch (right) prevents accidental erasure. .
To prevent the recording on the tape from being erased, there is a small write-protect tab that can be moved to one of two positions, labeled "REC" and "SAVE". Comparing the sliding tab to a door, the tape is in the "REC" position is when the "door" is open and the "SAVE" position when it is closed. (Not all tape cases have markings for this information!) The tape can only be recorded on (or recorded over) when this tab is in the "REC" position. This is an improved version of the VHS write-protect tab, which prevents erasure after it has been (permanently) broken off.

The no tape and eject symbols are flashing at the same time.


Those signs means Record tab on tape is ON, eject tape and check record tab and make sure to set it on Record position.

Sony ccd trv218e, recording & playing back does'nt work


I had that problem also and I found that using smaller tapes helped. I was using the 120 minute tapes, I think they may be too heavy.

TApe recording


try using a different tape, some tapes are what you call "wet" meaning they have a lubricant inside them and some cameras don't like them. Try to use Maxell Brand tapes I have used the for over 4 years and never had a problem

Cannot play my recorded films


if the camera is not showing recently recorded clips then the problem is fith the recording system, but if you are not able to view the old recorded tapes the there may the simple defect of head getting dirty. a head cleaning tape would solve the problem

Eject light comes on after I start playing the tape


ksmitheram,

I had the same problem with my camcorder just awhile ago. This can reflect a low battery. Try plugging in the camcorder for a couple of hours without using it. Then try recording or playing back the tape with it plugged in. Unplug it and check again. If this does not work you may have to replace the tape head.
