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.

I’m semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

    This is a problem with the camera only right? I was going to have the tapes professionally transferred to a DVD. The tapes should work fine for the conversion right?

    If they recorded normally you should have no problem transferring the video. If the problem was present when the video was recorded then the missing information is not on the tape. Chanes are the tapes are OK and you will Know for sure when you have them transferred. Another option would be to have the camcorder repaired and then transfer the video yourself. It'll cost you less in the long run.

What does wrong format mean with a canon zr300 camcorder? My buddy shot some footage on a high end camera and my zr300 camera at playback reads "wrong format playback not possible.


Different camcorders have different recording formats. Some ar HD, some are 16x9, etc.

A camera that isn't designed for a particular pre-recorded format cannot playback that recording.

Card error


the problem could be multiple things:
1. it's switched into card mode... without a cord 2. the card is locked, this can be fixed by retrieving the card from the camera, then pushing the lock switch down away from the word "lock" (the opposite direction of the tiny little arrow) 3. THe card is corrupted, for this there really is no fix, sorry.
hope this helped- snowsurfer58

Canon ZR300 Driver for vista


Hi bpgo,

Please visit Canon's Vista support page for the ZR300 by clicking here: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=326&modelid=11003&default_os=windows_vista. The site states the driver is either included in the operating system or is not supported. However, it includes upgrades to the software used with the camcorder for Vista. These upgrades may allow you to use your camcorder if you are having trouble with compatibility.

Thank you,
Jason,
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Hi guys,

Thank you very much for this solution posting. Really it worked. I was about to buy another one instead of fixing the problem. Because you know how the pain is, to send it factory and getting it repaired.

Once again Thank you.
