ITs most likely a fuse, unfortunately you can change it or its a son of a gun to change. You can check by removing the motherboard, locate the fuse, they are micro fuses, it either has the letter H or K etched on it, there could be anywhere from 1-5 of those fuses. Check for continuity if that s the problem than replace it, if you cant find a replacement micro fuse than solder over the fuse for continuity...that should make the camcorder power on, but beware once you solder over the fuse- there will be no more current protection for the camcorder. If the fuse is not the problem than it could be a loose circuit...

It wont turn on i even bought a new batery and still nothing what could it be?


Is your new battery charged? You may need to place it in the charger or hook the camera to the AC power and leave it overnight. If you have a charging cradle try to charge the battery that way. Sometimes that arrive dead.

Horizontal grey bars on the screen and video output, even on video shot and previously without those bars. This is on the Canon ZR400 Digital Video Camcorder.


This is usually caused by an oxidized or defective Audio/Video drum. Try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

    Canon ZR400 red internal battery error


    Just as a follow-up I managed to locate the problem. I opened the camcorder up as it is out of warranty anyways and found that there is a thin flat flexible cable which I will call a ribbon cable that is broken. It connects the main circuit board to the one that holds the external battery and internal battery. I have called Canon to purchase this part (it has a part number etched on it which when you read it off they say it sounds like a legitimate part number) and so far have not been able to get it (they assume it is part of the main circuit board assembly and have not been able to actually locate this part number). As it stands now I know the problem and can not get the part.

    Canon ZR40 would not turn on


    The battery is probably so dead it is using all the power from the wall supply.  Remove the battery, and run only from the wall supply.

    Transfering video to Mac


    Digital video on the ZR400 is transferred to a computer only via the DV out port, which will connect to a firewire port on a PC or a Mac. USB will not transfer video, only images to and from the card.

    The camera seems to have these problems, and I think its because the power switch is on when the camers is being charged.
