Question about Canon ZR200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
There are gray lines that have appeared across my screen during playback of my videos and also skipping. Can you tell me what to do?
My cannon miniDV also shows gray lines. When i would put a cassette in the camcorder sometimes it wouldn't let me do anything and would say eject disk. I looked on YouTube and saw how to clean the head with alcohol and a q-tip then let it dry for about 10 min. My head was filthy so it needed it but gray lines remain. I was also told that I may need to demagnetize my head so I bought a demagnetizer to try it out from eBay. Just Plugged it in and placed it on the head for 1 sec no success, i tried it again for 10sec according to another post, no success. I finally found another solution to try. I just forwarded to the end of the cassette where I had nothing recorded, I left the camera lens on and recorded for about 7 min. Guess what, it worked! I thought I was going to have to throw this camera away but nope! I suggest keep trying and one of these options should fix it! Cleaning the head may have fixed the eject disk but the recording with the lens on and in a quiet room fixed the gray lines!
