Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Camera went swiming in salt water, But I need the tape!

Hi Folks My ZR100 went for a swim in salt water. I'm sure it's a paper weight, well almost, but may try to send it in for an estimate. The Problem is the tape is stuck inside the camera and I need the tape. How do I remove the tape without power? I need more detail then turning the motor. How do I get to the motor that releases the tape? Are there schematics online for this camera? Thanks m

Hi, last month we bought an intex round pool (18' x 54") with sand pump and salt sanitizer. Within the last 2 days the water started turning green. It turns out my husband accidently set the pump...


You don't want to swim in water that has algae... 1st ...Make sure you have the correct amount of salt. See you manual for amount needed. Must set you pump timer first and sync your chlorinator between that time, if pump turns off before chlorinator cycle ends, you will get an "Low flow" alarm. Set you pump timer to run 12 hours and the chlorinator for 10 to 11 of those hours and should see results within 3 days or so. After that, If you live in an area that is hot, 10 hours pump and 8 to 9 chlorinator... Hope this helps...

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.

Canon zr100 died: no power


If you have had the camera for a long time, it may have simply died. This may not help, but you could leave the camera on untill the battery loses all power, then try to turn it back on, and see if it works.

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.
