Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Display problem I have notice when I look in the LCD, the view finder and also on playback, it appears as if the upper portion of the screen is darker (darker shade). There is a distinctive line from top to bottom. This issue is also seen on playback on the TV. Any idea?

what you can do is to remove the back cover to access the inverter board. probably the cause of the smell is burned inverter board for the screen back light ( ccfl ) at the upper portion of the display.you can find the inverter board near the power supply board. usually you will replaced the inverter board since most of the part get fried as will as the pcb pattern circuit board get burnt.hope this can help good luck.

The problem i m having with my camcorder is when i want to record film screen goes blank but i can watch my previous recorded videos


Look in the view finder when recording instead of the screen. if you see the image there then the unit is probably set to look through there. Many of the new units dont' have a full view finder to lens item they actually have a small lcd screen inside the view finder. Check your options for recording.

Also if the view finder is tilted you need to close that before usign the lcd.

The image will not appear simultaneously on the LCD

monitor and the viewfinder. It will appear in the

viewfinder when the LCD monitor is in the lock position,

and it will appear on the LCD monitor when fully
extended.

Screen Half darker


It sounds like your backlight isn't working properly. LCD screens have backlights that illuminate the colors produced upon their surfaces, so that you can easily see the screen without an external light source. In your case, it sounds like your backlights either aren't cailbrated, are damaged, or were produced unevenly.

There is most likely not a fix for this, though most all LCD screens have some form of light distortion. My own LCD screen is slightly brighter around the edges, where the backlights are located, but this is only noticeable when displaying a completely black screen.

Black LCD and out of focus


My LCD screen has also malfunctioned - some-one else has also posted a similar problem and has been told its to do with a carbon cable connecting the LCD screen to the camera that needs replacing.
Not sure about the viewfinder problem - is there a control to adjust the focus, or is that what you mean by the viewfinder lever?

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen


the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.

Powershot S1 IS trouble shooting in images of lcd monitor


Try playing back pictures you know were captured properly ( either with another properly working camera or with your camera before the problem with quality has appeared ). If the image is ok in playback but 'noisy' in capture mode then the CCD sensor is faulty /on its way out. Ask Canon if they repair CCD faults on this model free of charge.
