Camcorder will not even turn on... help...

I have a Canon ZR85 camcorder and it will not turn on. Not only will itnot turn on, but it will not run through the powercord either. I tookit to a camera shop and they said the powercord was producing theneeded amount of electricity to charge it. They did not think it wasthe battery either. One day the camcorder was working, would charge,seemed fine... and the next it would not even turn on. I was told itwould be more expensive to send it in and get it repaired than to get anew one... but I dont have the time or money to do either. I'd love tohear if theres a way to fix it, I surely have no idea. Also, is there away to take the camcorder apart and look around inside- maybe cleansomething? I cant figure out how to do that either.

    I have the same exact problem. I've tried using a new battery as well as the power cord but nothing works. It looks like the camera is completely dead. Any advice on how to resolve this, or should I just go out and get a new camera?

    Can you send me a diagram or where I should be taking camcorder apart. I needed the location of the fuse. I believe

    I have the same issue since no power and nothing. I check the

    battery with ohm meter and try the a/c all failed. Please,

    send me picture or video if you have any of where and how to

    get to the fuse. THANKS A BUNCH IN ADVANCE. : )

You could take it apart just be careful, when you take a part off put the screws next to the part were they were when they were on there, on the mainboard on the edge there are fuses that have letters on them i cant remember but it might be four fuses that are white with black writing either h or j on them look closely you have to use a ohm meter put it to sound and check each one when you dont get a beeping sound then that could be your problem or a flex might have come loose thats really all you could do.

    they will come out you just have to apply pressure and make sure the screwdriver you are useing will fit in the screw and not have room to move around it should be snug.

Zr85 camcorder will not turn no lights no power


Ok, let's try the "easy fixes" first. When this problem happens, it can be a oxidized power switch contact, or oxidized battery contacts on the camera. Clean the battery contacts and the contacts on the camcorder with an eraser gently (they are gold plated). See if the camcorder works now. The next step is only if you're not planning on taking the camcorder apart. There are times when you can give the camcorder a slightly hard "whack" with the palm of your hand, somewhere near the power switch, while the power switch is on, and if the camera works, then you know it's most likely a dirty or oxidized contact inside. See if you can get it working with these methods. If you can't, you will have to disassemble the camcorder or have it serviced. Get an estimate if you get it serviced, since it can be expensive, and you might just opt for a replacement.
