Digital video camcorder are recording signals in very thin line (as thin as 1/8 of a hair.) Therefore, following symptoms may appear if video heads become dirty even a little. If such symptoms appear, clean the video heads with a commercially available dry cleaning cassette. If the symptoms reappear shortly after cleaning, the video cassette may be defective. Stop using the cassette. Video heads may become dirty under the following conditions: (1) When using the camcorder in humid or hot places. (2) When using cassette with damaged or dirty tape. (3) When using the camcorder in dusty places. (4) When using the video heads without cleaning them for a long time. Note: Before you make important recording, clean the video heads and make a test recording first. We also recommend cleaning the video heads after use before storing the camcorder.

I have a Canon ZR80. It worked okay for the first three years, though I used it maybe 10 hours a year. In the third year, high temp and humidity (90+F, 99% relative humidity) caused the CCD to fail. This is a product-wide mass defect, Canon repaired it for free. Next problem, the so-called "mosaic" or "checkerboard" or "partial recording" problem. This maybe occurred from dropping it or knocking it over. Researching it on the InterNet I saw this is common and fresh tapes and tape-head cleaning is recommended. None of that worked. Canon told me, when I contacted them, that I should send in the camera for repairs and they'd contact me about the estimated cost. I have read that usually it costs so much you might as well buy a new camera. I decided to try fixing it myself. First I removed all screws on the exterior, this required a very small jeweler's screwdriver. Removed the battery, left the tape drive bay open while doing this. DO NOT fully disassemble, remove case components only! After removal of case components, the drive controller board is located in the center of the unit, beneath where the LCD/Control unit was. The controller board has many very small ribbon connectors. After pressing all of these on tightly, I loaded a tape and battery. Test recording worked perfectly for several repeats. I reassembled the case components. It still works! If you are good with your hands and have good tools, and were about to dispose of the unit, try this repair first. It took me about an hour, and required only steady hands, a tiny screwdriver, good lighting, and lots of patience. It's less expensive than paying Canon, and it's better than throwing it away without trying to fix it. Best of luck! --thardman at thomashardman dot com

I have a canon sx30 IS. I can no longer get it to play back. The camera still takes photos and video as I can take the card and see them on computer. Any idea what is wrong?


First test to see if the Replay (single right arrow) button actually works. That may be the problem. That button does two jobs. 1st it is supposed to enter the replay mode to show the last picture taken first. Apparently, from your description of the problem, that is not happening. To verify it is that switch that is dirty or defective, power up the camera, press the Replay button firmly just once, press the left arrow on the circular switch once. Wait until the lens retracts (about one minute). Then press the Replay button firmly once more. The camera should power down. If it doesn't, that proves the Replay switch is dirty or defective. Post the results of this test if possible.

When i put my action replay in my dsi it says there is no game.


it must be because the game cartridge is dirty. It happened with me too. First, try to blow out the dust in the action replay and the yellow data part of the game cartridge. Then if that doesn't work when you plug it in, try to wet it. Use rubbing alchohol with a tissue or an alcohol swab and rub the yellow data part of the game cartridge. It's ok, it won't get destroyed. Since data streams can be cleaned without the use of water and using alchohol cleans it. I used it on my Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll and it was dirty because I didn't use it for a long time. Then, I wiped with an alchohol swab. After that, I put it in my Action Replay and it went to the codes already.

On replay black horizontal line


Hi!
Probably the video head has to be cleaned - you should give it to a local camera service center. I don't recommend using the cleaning tapes.

Hope this helps!

Beware the red and blue lines!!!


Word of advice: Don't rebuy them. Simply reset your action replay (A+B before legal disclaimer, A+B+Start+select during until the main screen) and reprogram your codes or redownload them (whichever suits you best)
