Question about Canon ZR90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Pink or grey horizontal lines on video download or viewing

Recently I was trying to download video to my computer. In doing this the recorded tapes showed (and downloaded) the video with wide horizontal pink or grey digital lines across the images. When I tried to play it back on the camera it does the same thing. I tried cleaning the head but it hasn't helped. I also tried the fast forwarding recommendation for someone who had blue lines in camera. When I made the tapes they were fine. Now we are also getting a blank screen when we are in record mode.

I have the same issue and have for over a year (haven't had the time to send it to Canon for a few weeks to analyze, but have cleaned it numerous times). But I can tell you that the problem is internittent and the recordings are fine. Eventually, don't know the remedy, but it will suddenly stop doing that and I can download fine, and watch on camera fine. When it does happen, I just keep recording. It never shows up permanently. I re-tyr downloading or viewing and about the 3rd or 3th time (let it sit for a few hours between) it is normal!

Hello

While you can't download every show or movie that's available on Netflix, there is already a wide selection available for the feature, including much of the service's original content.

1.Open the Netflix app.
2.Tap the menu button in the upper-left corner. It looks like three horizontal lines.
3.Tap Available for Download.
4.Tap the show or movie that you want to download.
5.Tap the download button next to the movie or episode that you want to download (looks like an arrow).

Recording and Playback error


I'm not sure what the solution is, but I am having the same probelms, and I would appreciate any help with this since I am shooting a childrens camp and I am fairly isolated and don't have the time to swop cameras or send it to get fixed. I need to know if the recording is fine (video and audio) but the playback is not working correctly...or is it not recording correctly or playing back correctly. The sound cuts out from time to time in playback. Thank you.

Horizontal Streaks accross my lcd during record and playback


Are you trying to shoot from a TV or computer monitor? If so, check the frame rate--30frames per sec (fps) or 15fps. If it is on 30fps, changing to 15fps should solve the problem.

Panasonic NV-GS60 with horizontal lines appear on screen


Clean the heads(use the specified cleaning tape sparingly).
Change tape. Using Panasonic video tape? It sounds like no. You might get by with Sony... Try Panasonic.
The tapes are different thickness, durability and therefore suitability for cameras. Try to get ME -type tape( metal evaporated) instead of MP( metal particle) as the particles tend to flake off more readily. The blue often means no signal(video) was recorded in that space(on the tape). Let me know it it helps.
