    Same issue. Runs good some days then on other days it will show a staticy flickering when shooting photos or video. Seems to me the only way to get it to work some times is by using the "Fonz" tap ("Happy Days") on the side of the camera.

Hey guys...did you know that Canon actually put out a recall on this and will fix it for free if you contact them? They put it out several years ago but just fixed my this past month. (laziness on my part). They literally had it back to me within one week of me first contacting them.

Your ccd is messed up, which can be replaced but is way expensive. You are better off getting a different, better camera. My one camera does the same thing and sometimes if you just play around with it and make sure the camera is clean inside and that you have a good tape and a charged battery then it ends up working, but still it has colored bar-type images appearing in brighter areas of the shot at times. Other times it just works on a good day then stops working the next. There really is no way to change this issue on your own unless you have a good warranty for the camera.

Check that the cap is not on, and camera is not in pc mode. Probably it is a lens fault.

My Canon ZR45 has no picture on the lcd display


You have a case of CCD chip gone bad. It goes bad without notice and it happens to few ZR model camcorders. Unfortunately, ZR45 does not have CCD advisory with free repair from Canon. So the cost of repair may exceed the value of present value. For information, these models have free repair with CCD problem, ZR60,65,70,80,85 and ZR90. -James

Black screen, yet able to review past pictures


if you can take photo but can't see any thing in shooting mode, your display is turned off. just find a key on your camera which labled Disp. or something like that and press it to turn the display ON. I hope this helps...

CANON A70 CAMERA


First try pressing the "DISP" button. If that doesn't work, try downloading a picture. Is the picture also black? If so, it's probably a defective CCD imager. Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:

Cannon SD100


Affected products: - Camcorders: ZR60, ZR65 MC, ZR70 MC, ZR80, ZR85, ZR90, ELURA 40 MC, ELURA 50 - Digital Cameras A60, A70, A75, A300, A310, S230, SD100, SD110, A40(*), A80(*), A85(*), A95(*), S1 IS(*), S60(*), S200(*), S330(*), S400(*), S410(*), S500(*) *Models added as of Oct.31, 2006 Malfunction: It has been confirmed that the connecting parts of the internal wiring of the CCD used in affected products may become disconnected, especially if the affected products are stored or used in high-temperature and high-humidity environments. If this occurs, the signal is not output from the CCD normally in Shooting Mode, which may cause a distorted image or the absence of an image. This malfunction can be confirmed on the LCD monitor screen during shooting. The same malfunction also appears on the recorded image. Canon's Response: Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will repair, free of charge, the products listed above exhibiting the above-mentioned malfunction if Canon determines that the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with this repair.

Support hours are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST).

My Hitachi VM H710A plays just fine, and the picture looks fine. But when it playsback footage or records footage, five to ten seconds later, it stops abruptly, and flashes the word "TAPE". First thing I must add, is that I was using a prerecorded videotape, and was testing it from the beginning of the cassette and the middle of the cassette. I thought maybe the heads were dirty, and so I cleaned them using a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol. I cleaned the head drum with a piece of paper soaked with rubbing alcohol so that I wouldn't get any fibres in the heads. I waited for it to dry and then I put a cleaning cassette inside. To which, it still stopped abruptly five to ten seconds in during playback. I then decided to look at the manual of the camcorder and see the symptom. It says that due to temperature changes that it might cause this symptom. I placed it in a cool room and left it there all day and checked on it, and the camcorder is still doing the same thing as before hand. Then another cause said that it might sense some moisture. I made sure that the camcorder was dry externally and internally, and yet still, same problem. Thats when I decided to take it apart and look inside to see if there was anything odd inside the camcorder causing it to function the way it does. The belt seemed to be working fine, and there was no missing parts. The tracking poles and path alignment was fine, and not loose. Everything simply seemed just fine. So I am unsure as to why my camcorder is operating like this.
