My camcorder is a Canon ZR - 40. A red flashing icon appears on the display screen immediately after power is turned on. The camcorder will not record nor will it play back. I assume this icon is...

This is more than likely a problem in the cameras tapr mechanism and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired 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.

I go to record and it looks like it is recording. But when I play back nothing is there. It is doing this on all of my tapes.Tried viewingan old tape but when played back nothing is there,

You could try slaving the camera out to an external screen if you have the cables, you should find a RCA output socket on the camera marked video out (commonly known as a phono)normally yellow also a couple of audio out sockets one red and one white.
If you plug the yellow one into an external monitor you will see if it's the camera LCD screen that faulty.
Also check the iris is not turned down when playing back or recording this can happen if the camera is set to manual.
Set the camera to automatic and try again.
It sounds to me that the iris is closed, if the head drum is spinning you should get something even if it's random signal noise denoting clogged heads anyway the camera would flash up a clogged head icon so first as check the iris.

Reformatted Drive. Now Computer will not detect Canon ZR 600

Look for a Canon log file and it will state what has not been loaded.Sometimes another program will lock a registry key that it is tring to access and you have to manually check it as not read only.
you do have to be the administrator to achieve this

This is the icon to warn you to replace the back up battery which is housed behind the main battery unit. See page 15 of the manual.

Flashing red icon on canon zr 900 not addressed in manual?

Check to see if the small lithium battery (size of a dime) is installed behind the battery pack. This stores the date/time when rechargeable battery is low or off.

Low quality image from 2GB chip

Low resolution on memory card recording, regardless of the storage capacity of the card is just the way it is. If you consult the zr600 users manual (p. 82 of my edition - PUB.DIM-734/1205Ni15.1, c2006) you can find that video recording to the memory card is limited to resolutions of either 320 x 240 or 160 x 120 pixels. These resolutions are pretty poor - disappointingly so seeing that one of the old computer monitor standards used to be 640 x 480 and that 1024 x 768 is common today. I was disappointed too.
