Some capstan or other tape guide maybe out of position, or another problem is occurring with the tape cartridge. The unit will have to be checked and cleaned first, then possibly serviced.
Here is an exerpt from "camsbargains.com":
My cannon ZR200 digital camcorder won't accept its tapes. What could I be doing wrong and how do I fix it? Jul 24, 2007 by Nate Dawg | Posted in Camcorders
I don't know if it is the tape I'm using or what, but when I put it in it closes for about 5 seconds then rejects it. I don't know what is wrong because it just started doing this recently.
The most likely cause is either something (a piece of dirt or something) is stuck in the tape deck, or a small piece of metal is bent. It also might be caused by moisture in the tapes, but if you let them sit inside for an hour, they should be fine. If you can see something, try to pull it out, otherwise take it to a dealer and have them take a look.

Try to blow the tape cartridge out with compressed air to try to free any obstruction, that's about all one can do without having it serviced. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can be high. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Wont retract when putting in new tape


Oftentimes on a camera of this age the motor for the tape transport will go out. I've had it happen on two older models. Your only option if this happens on every tape is to send it in for repair to Canon. It can be spendy though.

Can I hook up to the DW 100 Canon burner with my ZR200 to burn mini tapes on DVD?


No. The Canon USA web site says the Canon DW-100 has a USB terminal and works with "USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)." In other words, the Canon DW-100 burner works only with Canon's USB 2.0 camcorders. I have a Canon ZR200. The ZR200 has Firewire 400 digital video output, not USB 2.0 output. The USB port on the ZR200 is ONLY for still images. Video will not and cannot be output through the USB port on the ZR200. (Page 121 in the ZR200 manual mentions using the USB port on your camcorder for transferring still JPEG images to your computer.) You need a DVD burner with "DV Input" (also called Firewire 400 or IEEE 1394) to hook up your camcorder to burn Mini-DV tapes onto DVD. The Sony VRDMC10 Stand Alone DVD Recorder/Player has DV Input. The ZR200 camcorder did not come with a Firewire cable, but you can buy one at any electronics store or at a cheaper price online. Make sure that you get the right kind of Firewire cable, 4-pin to 4-pin or 4-pin to 6-pin, whatever the DVD burner you choose requires. (Your ZR200 has a 4-pin DV port on the camera's end.) USB 2.0 Hi-Speed (with compatible Canon camcorders only)
