You must update the P2 driver through USB first.

When shooting, the camera will not stop recording or shut off. I am shooting to the P2 cards. The only way to stop the recording is to remove the power supply / battery and then repairing the clip.

The top operation board has a connection problem and you must disassemle and clean with special contact cleaning spray all the connections with flat (ribbon)cables and reassemble.
the board is the one on the top including menu button...

The Menu button and the MCR button arent working.

This problem appears due to a missconnection on the upper operation board,that's the one on the top including menu button.
You should disassemble the upper handle unit clean all the connections by removing all the flexicables and reassemble it all back.
A lot of screws but you will solve the problem.

Zebra effect does not go away. The menue does not work

inside the viewfinder there is a button, called amazingly enough ZEBRA, next to the OIS button,(optical image stabilizer button). You push this button to turn zebra on or off. In the menu, you adjust the zebra to show at 80% or 100% of optimal exposure on the brightest spots of your shots. You need to dial your iris up or down to make the zebra go away, then turn it back up until it barely registers on the brightest spot of your image, then you are using zebra to it's effective use. When shooting in zebra 80%, try to make the people's faces barely register a tiny bit of zebra striping to have their faces exposed at the best light. The white shirts will be blazing, but then again, they should not be wearing white shirts anyway if your pre production crew did their job when advising talent what to wear. (No stripes, solid colors are best. Dark colors are even better, especially for dark skinned people.)

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera

You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.

Camcorder "Freezes Up" during playback and/or during creation of thumbnails

I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.
