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 ZR800 - transfering video to DVD recorder


Just want to make sure you are talking about a four-pin firewire cable (small and flat) as opposed to a 4-pin s-video cable (round).

If you are talking about the latter, there is no control signal in an s-video cable so there is no "recognition" possible. Make sure that you have your DVD recorder set to S-video in and then hit play on the camcorder. You will need audio cables too if you want sound transferred. You should see video after you have manually pressed "play" on the camcorder.

Lines across the sreen when i play back the tape


Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on & videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video & audio in between on every tape I put in. I think the person who helped me solve this said that it was a result of the tape alignment going off.

Transfering video to Mac


I believe that camera only works with firewire. You might want to check with Canon to see if there is compatibility problems with Macs. I know it works on Windows computers.

On playback, the video has gray lines across it


Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on & videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video & audio in between on every tape I put in. The person who helped me solve this said: "the speed isn't linked with the last time you recorded on it. Frames have an A/B part to them. If A is hitting B instead of A, a line appears. I would try the head cleaner first, then blacken your used tape (keep lens cap on and record in a quiet room) and try that."
My camera is a Canon zr80 digital camcorder. (Called Canon, they had me reset it & then recommended sending it in).

Pictures have lines


some people say that winter storage does this.it is ,apparently,to do with moisture and the residue it causes when it dries.to all of you i recommend putting your cameras in a sun-lit window for 20 minutes a day for 3 to 5 days.if it does not work,try a tape head cleaner.
