Question about Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Fuzzy vertical lines on display, viewfinder on recording

I see fuzzy vertical lines on the screen and the viewfinder when recording. When playing back an old tape, no problems. Manual focus and different zooms don;t solve it. Camera has a full battery, but has not been used in about 3 years....

    I have the same problem. I am sending mine back to Canon to see what it will take to fix it. I hope to talk them into covering it. I haven't used mine hardly at all. I bet I haven't shot 3 full 60 minute tapes with it.

    I have the same issue. I am going to send it back to Canon. They sent a prepaid UPS label for it. I hope to talk them into covering it. I haven't hardly used it at all. I bet I haven't shot 3 tapes worth of video with mine.

This problem may be due to a malfunction of the CCD image sensor in the camera. It is defective in this model and canon will repair it for you at no charge. Here is the link to their service notice. You can call the 1800 no in the article and they will send you a form along with a ups label to send the camera to them.

Pictures fuzzy when you look through the viewer.


The viewfinder and the picture lens are totally separate. If it looks fuzzy, and then comes out fuzzy, the capture screen inside needs cleaned. The main lens and viewfinder lenses should be cleaned too.
Get estimates before you say yes to the work. It might be cheaper to buy another camera, unless you can do the work yourself.

The machine is overheating and the graphics chip on the main board is acting up cause of it. Make sure there is no dust or dirt blocking the air vents that would cause the system to heat up more then normal.

If that doesn't do it then maybe think about getting a cooler for the system, here is a website that talks about a few of them. Click here.

If that doesn't help then your mainboard is going bad and would need to be replaced.
