Chances are it is in need of a major cleaning. Usually by the time this happens the cleaning tape will do no good. A good internal cleaning is usually the only thing that will help it........Has it been droped? If it has then you could need repairs

No image on TV or in viewfinder when I playback the tape in 4yr old Canon ZR100 video camera


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

Tip

Remove tape issue


I just rec'd. a response from Canon in regards to my recent issue that you are all having with tapes being ejected, not loading. I was told that the issue was due to the many different tape manufacturers using different types of lubricants for their tapes. These lubricants can build up on the head and cause the tape eject issues. They suggest trying a dry cassette cleaner, but as my camera will not even accept a tape that option is not viable. I will try using denatured alcohol on an electronic swab (large q-tip available at Radio Shack) and try cleaning the head. I will keep you all posted on the results. Also Canon said that the posts can be loose and this will also cause problems. I noticed someone else had similar concerns this also something I am exploring and will keep you up to date on.

Won't except tape


I have a ZR100 that did the same nearly the same thing - but it was only beeping twice. I followed the advice another thread suggested - I banged it twice on the opposite side from the door but it didn't fix it. Then I banged it twice on the side with the tape door.... and now all is well!

I couldn't believe that "fixed" it. Like banging the ol' tube color TV on the side to fix the picture. Maybe it is short lived, but if it holds for the rest of this year until the camcorder Christmas sales begin, I'll be happy!

Tape not loading


I READ THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLKEM THIS MORNING ONTHIS WEBSITE, BUT I CAN NO LONGER FIND IT.

THE SOLUTION SUGGESTED DROPPING THE CAMERA ON TO A CARPETED FLOOR FROM HALF A METRE HIGH AS A FIX.

THERE WAS ALSO A POSTING FROM A GUY WHO HAD FOLLOWED THIS ADVICE AND IT FIXED HIS CAMERA.

SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW SUIT AND I DROPPED THE CAMERA ON TO A CARPETTED FLOORT FROM HALF A METRE HIGH AND WHEN I TRIED IT WITH THE TAPE IT WORKED, NO JOKE, THIS IS AN HONEST AND TRUTHFUL REPORT.

USB Port


To transfer video to your computer from the ZR100, you will need to connect the camera to the computer via the firewire interface. The ZR100 does not have a USB interface.

Why wont my camcorder allow my tape to go in


I have the same problem. Let me guess... you put the tape in, it makes a few loud annoying beeps, then ejets the tape. I replaced the battery and it worked fine for a few days, then went back to its old tricks.
