Canon ZR80 does not display any image; When playing back you can hear only the audio


Can you see the menus and icons. If you can, but can't see what you're recording, you may have an image sensor (CCD) failure. See this link for Canon's service notice regarding this issue and your options.

My cannon zr80 wont show anything through the lens anymore. The screen just appears black, it almost looks like it has the cap on even though it isnt on and sometimes the screen gets lines in it. It still...


I don't think this is too much at all, it sounds like the sensor went out behind the lens. If you email them at camerasandparts.com they specialize in these canons. I doubt it will be much plus you'll get the whole camcorder serviced at the same time. That site is amazing if you need help with a canon, that's actually all they specialize in. I don't have their email but it should be on the site. Good luck with it.

Black screen in REC mode, bars across the screen in Playback mode


My advice is that you should by a DV cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!
