This sounds like a power problem. The battery could be nearing the end of it's life (even if a year old, since we never know how long they were on the shelf before being sold). Another problem can be slightly oxidized battery contacts, either on the battery, or inside the camera. Clean them with a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol.
If neither of these things help, run it by a camera repair shop to see what they think, and get an estimate on repair.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I can record and see it recording but i can not view my recording. At first the tape wouldnt eject but i was online and i went to troubleshoot for the cannon mini dv camcorder zr200 and it told me to tap...


1. Connect the camcorder to a TV and check if you can playsee the tape.
2. Take that tape and check it using another miniDV camcorder.

this way you will know if the issue is within the camcorder or the tape.
If is within the camcorder .. take it to a service dealer and see how much is to fix it. Chances are that is not worth to be fix. A brand new ZR900 is just 200 USD ...

Unable to see any picture on my JVC GR-D22U Camcorder. Please help*


I bought 3 Sony camcorders at different times, I have used not more than 20 times, and my brother bought another kind of camcorder did the same, but after 3-4 years, automatically quit one by one, even my brother’s camcorder quit within 4 years, this is what I think, the big companies like Sony, Jvc etc., won’t let you use the same unit for a long time, from our case, made us thought, they probably put a timer to control the age of the camcorders. Maybe we have to know how to adjust or change the timer chap.

I am still research about this case. And also I have a lot of documents can not transfer.
