Question about Canon ZR300 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Canon ZR300 will not power on

The camera in question is about 6 months old. It has been used extensively. Two days ago, while sitting on a table in "record" mode, the camera shut down, and will not power back up ..... even after hooking up to AC or charging the battery. Any thoughts???

Try to use the manufacturer warranty it usually is for 1 year, call the tech support and ask them where can you send it for this warranty. Pack it well and use some kind of traceable method UPS or FedEx keep copy's and names of the procedure it may take up to a month for you the get it back. Good luck!

What does wrong format mean with a canon zr300 camcorder? My buddy shot some footage on a high end camera and my zr300 camera at playback reads "wrong format playback not possible.

Different camcorders have different recording formats. Some ar HD, some are 16x9, etc.

A camera that isn't designed for a particular pre-recorded format cannot playback that recording.

Canon ZR300 Driver for vista

Hi bpgo,

Please visit Canon's Vista support page for the ZR300 by clicking here: The site states the driver is either included in the operating system or is not supported. However, it includes upgrades to the software used with the camcorder for Vista. These upgrades may allow you to use your camcorder if you are having trouble with compatibility.

Thank you,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Canon zr300 ejects tapes

Hi guys,

Thank you very much for this solution posting. Really it worked. I was about to buy another one instead of fixing the problem. Because you know how the pain is, to send it factory and getting it repaired.

Once again Thank you.

Canon zr300 ejects tapes

There is a fix for this which was posted for either the ZR 200 or 400. They call it the "Fonzie" fix. Just hit the camcorder with your fist on the side where the tape goes in (with the door closed). Hit it lightly once, try inserting the tape. Repeat this process with increasing force each time until this works.

Surprisingly, this worked for me. Obviously, there must be something loose for this type of solution to work. I actually had it working once, then it acted up again. I tried the same solution and it's working again. No problems for several days now.
