Question about Canon ZR80 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon ZR80 no image on TV in playback

Playback is fine on the camcorder screen, however when plugged into tv only sound is clear. When paused or in FF or REW image shows, but when PLAY is pressed it goes back to black with a bit of static.

Make sure your AV cable is plugged firmly into the camera. These cables can problem your observing when they are not fully "plugged in". If that does not solve your problem, the front pcb (board underneath lens assy) may have a bad connection. I charge a flat rate of $125.00 for camcorders including parts in most cases with a 90 warranty. If the repair cannot be made for this price a free estimate will be given. Contact Frank @615-400-1440 or e-mail fselman@comcast.net.

Camcorder will playback ,but shows no image when recording


Can you make it go while attached to a Power Adapter ? and with battery OUT, try that first. IF it works, buy a new battery for that model. Batteries can go so flat they cannot be charged, without special equipment,and even then they may not resurrect. funnily enough, leaving things without current running through them, or powering up,every few weeks, etc, can often cause a problem, strange huh?

Black screen in REC mode, bars across the screen in Playback mode


My advice is that you should by a DV cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head.
good luck!
