Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
It is a faulty CCD issue...... it has to be replaced..... but do not worry...
Canon have announced various recalls (with free repairs and prepaid shipping) for CCD problems.
Even if your camera is several years old and not in warranty, you might be entitled to a free repair. If you Canon camera has failed for any reason, or especially if it has image problems, check out the Canon website in your country.
In the USA, go to the Canon USA website, select your camera model, and click on the "Service" link.
here is the official canon recall for ur problem..... the recall was for the exact same problem ur facing (ie.) display doesnt work in record mode... clik the official link below.....
Or simply telephone Canon technical support (dial directory assistance) and ask about camera recalls.
You'll need your make, model, and serial number... make sure u have ur warranty card just incase.... they need the receipt
if u go to shop CCD will be $150- $250 replacement ... perhaps a little less. if you can get it. canon probably does not sell it alone, rather on a PC Board.
But if you get one, it is a bit tricky to actually remove a multipin device
like that. I use a stereo microscope, heat gun, small iron, solder paste,
solder wick and .. if that fails.. a credit card.
Once the CCD is in also there is no guarantee it will work without some
calibration for that very ccd.
so get that utilize that recall ... thats ur best bet....
if u feel i ve been of any help to u.... kindly rate my service....
good luck and have a nice day
