This is usually caused by a defective component in the tape detection circuitry and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Canon ZR80 does not display any image; When playing back you can hear only the audio


Can you see the menus and icons. If you can, but can't see what you're recording, you may have an image sensor (CCD) failure. See this link for Canon's service notice regarding this issue and your options.

I don't think this is too much at all, it sounds like the sensor went out behind the lens. If you email them at camerasandparts.com they specialize in these canons. I doubt it will be much plus you'll get the whole camcorder serviced at the same time. That site is amazing if you need help with a canon, that's actually all they specialize in. I don't have their email but it should be on the site. Good luck with it.

Gray lines on playback


Try using an $8 head cleaner for 10 seconds. That might be the solution or if it's a used tape, the speed isn't limked 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.

How do I remove lines


I had the problem of the horizontal grey lines with some pixels of pink. I ran the dry head cleaner a few times and the lines became solid grey with the sound now skipping worse than before. I cried, cleaned again, then played the tape. I did this about 4 times and still had no luck.

I then decided to try to record with a new tape around the room to see what would happen. After recording I played the tape back and it worked perfectly. I then went back the old tape that would not play properly and it worked fine! Seems like when I used the record button after cleaning it a few times everything worked fine, wierd.

Hope this might help someone.
