Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a canon ZR85 camcorder... It is playing the existing video but I am not able to shoot any thing. No image is appearing on the screen. If I shoot just like that, audio is getting recorded but not video.. any suggestion. Thanks a lot in advance. Kotha
I have the same problem. Looks like Canon covers it regardless of your warranty status:

I had this same problem. I bought a new battery and now the problem is gone.

I had the same problem. Called Canon tech support @ 1-800-828-4040. Was told it is a problem caused by a chip going bad, and that Canon will repair my camcorder free of charge. They send you a couple of emails. You fill out the form, mail your camcorder off for the repair. You should get your ZR85 camera back in about two weeks.

I had a similar thing happen to me...the video would not come one when I turned it on, but the audio would work, and it would play back tape fine. I happened upon the following solution (though I don't know how long it will last). I charged the camera, and then noticed it worked fine when the charger was plugged in. As soon as I unplugged it, the video would go black. So...I plugged it in, turned it to record, and unplugged it, and it worked! Almost like something got reset. I have no idea how long this will last, or if it means the battery is going...but, give it a try!
