SOURCE: No image when recording

What you probably have is some kind of condensation issue. This usually happens when the camera is used in places where there's high humidity, low temperature etc., Since you are able to view the pictures that are already taken, I would assume that this is just some kind of sensor issue. Most of the times this can be fixed by leaving the camera ON for about 1hr. This will get the condensation senor to sense everything is back to normal and will power up the viewfinder again.Let me know if it worked so that we can look at other possibilities.

Thanks,
Sai.

SOURCE: the led screen is not

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired 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.

Card locked shows of view finder, cannot take a picture it shows a't picture but won't take a picture


Look at the memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

My Canon ZR85 has no light in the view finder for recording images. It will play back tapes, but no images when you want to record. Battery is fully charged.
