Question about Canon ZR850 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

I have seen that others have the same unsolved problem as me. I have a Canon ZR850 mini cam. I recently did some recording and actually watched the recording later that night. The next day when I tried to look at the same recording there were 5 horizontal grey lines across the screen which makes it unwatchable. I've cleaned the heads. I'm concerned that there is a problem with the heads. Thank You

This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

My canon zr850 is rejecting mini dv tapes what do i do?


Sometimes this is caused by the tape itself, or more specifically, the tape case. If the tapes are labeled, there is a chance that the flap which lifts to expose the tape is stuck closed. Check this by locating just bellow the flap on the tape a recessed button. Press and hold it while opening the flap. If it's sticky, or stuck and is difficult to open, this is your problem. Make sure the flap opens unrestricted by removing the labels from the case which would hinder this motion. Hope this helps.
