Question about Canon MVX200i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I had the same problem, also the one with the tape being ejected. Solved them both with a kind of firmware reset. Works like a charm now. Here's what I did:
Remove the small cell battery at the bottom of the camera. Then drain the power by linking the USB cable to your computer. Leave the normal battery on! Try if it still has some power left, if so, drain the power completely. Then give a little bit of energy with the charger. Turn the camera on. It will now ask for you to enter the date. Enter a date in the earliest year that's in the list. 2004 in my case. Drain the power again completely with the battery attached, cell battery out. Charge it just a little again and open the tape loader. Then charge it comletely overnight with the tape loader opened.
I have no idea why this works but my camera is good as new.
