Question about Canon ZR45MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder
At first it would do it when fast rewinding, now it does it almost every time I install a tape. Problem started after I had sent it in for a repair(part of housing broke), sent it back in and it worked for a while but now it doesn't work at all. PLEASE HELP! Have read many reviews of this camera having the same problem with no solution found.
HEAD IS BAD. THIS NEEDS A REPAIR. VERY COSTELY THROUGH CANON

look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device. if no-go, then the take-up reel needs attention...needs possibly a new or well-cleaned-with-alcohol-swab rubber belt
