Question about Canon ZR200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My camera is almost new, only a little more than a year and I take very good care of this little camera. While I was filming in the house I noticed an unusual sound, I filmed for a few more seconds and stopped, I tried to replay the tape and it made the same noise and didn't replay. I turned it off and when I turned it on again it the LCD showed a red message "remove cassette" and it shut off almost immediately after that. I removed the battery and the tape then tried another tape and used eletrical cable w/o the battery but the same thing happened. I have no clue why this is happening and what to do to fix it, I showed it to a friend that knows more than me and he asked me to buy a cleaning tape and give it a try, but I can't find the item. Please help me! Thank you very very much for reading my e-mail. Mrs Yaky Fernandez

This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.
My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
