SOURCE: Canon zr300 ejects tapes

The solution for this required sending it to Canon factory service. I was very reluctant to do this because I've heard horror stories about Canon service, but I was actually pleasantly surprised. The total cost was only about $65 and the shipping and service turn around time was amazingly fast. I was expecting weeks to go by. If memory serves me right I shipped it and received it back in less than 2 weeks.

This is a known problem with Canon and would be covered under warranty if your time hasn't run out.

SOURCE: How do I transfer a recorded tape to my computer

You need IEEE (Firewire) or "DV" cable to transfer video from the camcorder to your computer. The connection is "DV" and is located on the front of the camera next to the "S" port. The marketing for this camera was deceiving...most customers thought they could hook up the USB to their computer and upload video...well you can't

HOW DO I RECORD AN EVENT DIRECTLY TO THE MEMORY CARD? (canon zr50)


Unfortunately, most camcorders can only use the memory card for photos. You cannot record video onto your memory card on a Canon ZR50.

Hello,

as far as I know, you can only save photos on the SD card.
You can capture the video from the tape to your PC via Firewire interface, connect the Firewire cable to the DV connector on your camera and your computer's firewire port and capture it with a program called WinDV.
About the DVD recorder, often it it the case with them that you have to 'finalize' the DVD before it can be read on a PC/Mac

Pink lines when i play back my tapes on my canon zr500


Hopefull your not going through the tv and then to your dvd recorder
transfer should go straight from your camera to the dvd recorder.
you may also want to but a head cleaner for a mini dv camcorder,run it twice and try recoding again.If that doesnt work,you may have a problem with the heads inside of the camera.If thats the case,it would need to go to canon or an authorized service center.

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.

Transfering video to Mac


Digital video on the ZR400 is transferred to a computer only via the DV out port, which will connect to a firewire port on a PC or a Mac. USB will not transfer video, only images to and from the card.

ZR50 Rec/Pause button not working


I encountered the same problem with the Canon REC/Pause switch was intermittent. To solve the problem I used a high pressure air hose and blasted the switch with air. It cleaned the contacts of the switch without having to take it apart.
