Question about Canon ZR65E Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Go to the manufacturer's website, for Canon it is <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportIndexAct">http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportIndexAct</a>
Select your device, and click the button for camcorder product advisories. There has been a known problem with the CCD chip in certain models, if that is the problem Canon will repair the problem free of charge, even without being under warranty. Free shipping as well.

He CCD (charge coupling device) went kaput like all those others who are complaining about no picture in the view finder. My technician told me that this happens when 1) on exposure to hot climate 2) if we focus too far, like into the sky or by mistake at the sun or some bright flourescent light. This fact is not mentioned in the accompanying instruction manual, atleast i did not find it. I hope all current users take these precautions, it is too late for me, I am not spending any more money on this digital camcorder. I sincerely request Canon to withdraw this product. i found this info hope it is helpful

The motor circuit on most handycams has it's own fuse since it draws more power then the rest of the camera combined.
The fuse will only be a tiny white blip on the circuit board about 1-2mm in size.
Safest option would be to have a technician take a look at it since they can be stubborn to even get apart, let alone track down mico fuses.
