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.

Canon will repair your camcorder free of cost as per announced scheme for ccd imager issue.

Click Canon CCD Advisory for details, how to get free repair.

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.

Good luck.

SOURCE: JVC GR-DF420E: message: Unit in safeguard mode

I think there is a problem in your database. My message clearly states: JVC GR-DF420E !

Further I was offered free assistance and now I'll have to pay?

On the camcorder problem: It seems to be a well known problem and it costs more to solve this than to buy a new one!

Kind regards

SOURCE: Hello, I have a JVC GR-DV800U

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair cost low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

If this response has been of any help to you, please be sure and give a positive vote for me on .

Tape ejects and will not play

the tape player will first look to see that the tape threaded properly around the video and audio heads ... then it will check to make sure the tape take up reel starts to move before allowing it to continue .. if the take up reel doesn't move in a couple of seconds after insertion then the tape would spill out inside the machine and make a real mess order to prevent that the machine ejects the tape.

take up reels often quit because the rubber wheels, belts or friction drive components have become hardened from age .. if the take up drive is not strong enough then it wont pull in the tape .. in order to prevent tape and machine damage the recorder ejects the tape .. that can also happen if the rubber parts have contamination or lubricant on the friction surfaces ... you can sometimes clean those wheels and parts using distilled water or special cleaning fluid .. dont use alcohol since that will remove elastomers in the rubber .. sometimes you can use a pencil eraser to clean up the friction surface by removing oxidized rubber... the proper fix is to replace the rubber take up reel drive parts if they are still available .. a rubber wheel liquid dressing is available that improves the surface for a while ..

the same problem happens in high humidity areas .. if the humidity is high enough then the tape tends to stick to the audio head and other guide parts .. if that happens then the take up reel will also stop moving .. warming or drying the tape and air (air conditioning or dehumidifier) can fix that but it takes a few hours ..

if a machine has not been run for a long time then sometimes just by cycling it many times trying fast forward and reverse can clean up the drive parts enough to get it working .. but do that on tape you can afford to lose .. be careful you dont end up with a lot of tape piled up inside the machine.

some late model high quality machines have a different drive mechanism that is more reliable .. sometimes you can find really nice machines at goodwill .. the better name brand ones may still have parts available .. the low cost units are considered disposable and are almost never worth the work that it takes to fix them unless you do it yourself .. the mechanism borders on genius but workmanship and mechanical cost cutting often resulted in machines that barely worked even when new ..

Err on display when insert tape, no functions work.

Two things. First there is some damage to the tape transport mechanism. Only a good look around will confirm this. Secondly a faulty mode switch.

How are you powering the camcorder ? Many will not transfer videos if battery powered, since the battery may fail. Try again with the camcorder mains powered, see if that helps. Have you cleaned the heads with a cotton bud and a little IPA ?

Try removing the batteries and wiping the connectors on the batteries and the connectors in the motordrive with a lens cloth. This worked for me. Sometimes the connectors get dirty and need to be cleaned for a complete connection. Hope this helps.

Vcr doesn't record sound. Though it plays back

Needs cleaning. You can either use headcleaner cassette ( not always effective ( If you can find the type with micro-filament brushes they're more expensive but far more effective and last forever ) ) ; or alternatively do it manually ( sometimes neccesary ) ; unplug unit, remove the cover and clean all the surfaces that the tape comes into contact with ( using Q-tips and head cleaning fluid ( most effective ( when done thoroughly ( have to keep at it until absolutely no trace of black carbon comes off on Q-tip ) ) ) .

Err message on 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 10 CD changer

I had a similar problem which responded to the use of a CD cleaner disc to clean the laser lens reading the CD. The "err" messages stopped and the changer started to work as it had before. Perhaps this will correct your problem too.
