Error C:04:00


  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Zr85 camcorder will not turn no lights no power


Ok, let's try the "easy fixes" first. When this problem happens, it can be a oxidized power switch contact, or oxidized battery contacts on the camera. Clean the battery contacts and the contacts on the camcorder with an eraser gently (they are gold plated). See if the camcorder works now. The next step is only if you're not planning on taking the camcorder apart. There are times when you can give the camcorder a slightly hard "whack" with the palm of your hand, somewhere near the power switch, while the power switch is on, and if the camera works, then you know it's most likely a dirty or oxidized contact inside. See if you can get it working with these methods. If you can't, you will have to disassemble the camcorder or have it serviced. Get an estimate if you get it serviced, since it can be expensive, and you might just opt for a replacement.
