Question about Canon ZR45MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Camera won't record a certain tape

After coming home from a trip to Europe, I tried to rewind the tape all the way to the front, but the camera started beeping and said to "eject the tape". Now whenever I so much as put the tape in, the camera starts beeping. This does not happen with other tapes.

Either the tape is sticky or is hard to take the reel. that's why it's beeping.

This can be caused by several problems including the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly, a defective clutch in the take-up spool or a faulty rotary mode switch. This will require disassembling the camera to repair and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be repaired by a qualified service technician.

The machine won't erase my tapes? Is there a chance it could be a faulty machine?


Does the erase light come on and the tape rewinds? Or does it just beep when you try? Could be a bad erase switch, sometimes pressing harder will do the trick. If it just beeps, try another tape.

Won`t Rewind


Do you still have the remote control? Try with the remote. If this works, the button of the camera is broken and have to be replace by a qualified technician. Good luck!

Black or blank screen


your older recordings will only play on a pal monitor / tv ; if the camera video is ok now ? your tape heads may be dirty , wearing out - or both ; try a cleaning tape first but - do not rewind cleaning cassettes , or the old grime will be put back on the cleaned heads and guides ;

All of a sudden some of my tapes will not playback and others will??


I have been experiencing the same problem with my Panasonic PV-GS120. I don't know the root cause or real solution, but I found if I keep playing the tape, rewind->play->rewind->play, eventually I would get the image back normal. I think I would try to clean up header with a header cleaner to see if it helps or not. If not, I plan to submit a request to Panasonic support to check out possible solution. Good luck.
