Question about Canon ZR200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

2 Answers

Recording stopped working

Hi,
Till yesterday I was able to use ZR200 happily. Suddenly recording stopped working. May I would have played with settings. The camera mode either displays a blank screen or the Canon logo. The playback functions are working fine. I can play the casette or i can see the images in the card in play (card) mode. But when I switch to camera(casette) or carmera(card) mode, I can see only blank screen or Canon logo if I set it as default start screen. When I get it into this state, Even turning it to the "OFF" position does not work. The only way to get rid of the blank screen is to remove the battery. Can you please help.

Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman

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)

Why does my camera stop recording after one hour? i need to record 90 minutes


Your camera records in two modes: SP and LP modes. SP is a higher quality mode that runs for about 60 minutes, while LP records for 90.
To change to LP mode, open the menu and select [VCR setup]. Select [REC MODE], set it to [LP] and close the menu.
Keep in mind that your video and audio will be of noticeably lower quality with this setting applied.

My canon zr200 was working fine yesterday and i recorded and everything went well, i went to record today and although the camera said it was recording, i cannot get it to play back. all i get is a blue...


The laser lens on the camera might need cleaning. Use a q-tip and 90% alcohol to clean it, then try it. If that doesn't help, try another disc. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid it might require servicing. Get a quote before you get it serviced, sometimes it's just better to buy another one. Good luck!
