First and foremost shut down the device. Remove the battery if possible for 1 minute. Then restart/power up device. If still no luck or response. Go into the setting and look for the reset to default setting if there is no option for touch screen controls. Best of luck

open it, clean the dust with air blower, check whether either the capstan motor or drum drive motor is struck, try to loosen it with a plastic lever.

this camcorder is an earlier model thus the zoom control motor could be weak, if so open it and take out the camera section and unscrew the zoom control motor, loosen it, some sort of sticky grease on the worm gear also obstructs, clean it with small brush or cotton bud. then apply a little silicon grease. don't let dust go in.

take it to a repair man. some doors open via a small motor with a rubber belt. these belts tend to break due ware and tear.

You won't be able to do it with just a USB cable You will need an analog-to-digital video converter which will take the analog video signal from the Camcorder, and translate it to a digital signal for the computer via the USB interface.

Startech, Dazzle and Roxio are three brands


Your iLink port is a Firewire interface, so if you have an older Macintosh computer with firewire, you may be able to go from the camera directly to the Mac with the appropriate 4 pin to 6 pin or 4 pin to 9 pin Firewire cable

Thanks for letting us know. Since you have not, in fact, asked a question, we are unable to supply an answer.

That is probably caused by the mechanism control not being able to determine which mode the deck is in. A new mode switch may cure it but I won't hold my breath as it probably needs a capacitor kit as well.

Nothing wrong with the Canon, but you cannot expect one piece of equipment to play tapes recorded a dozen years ago on equipment of a different make.

Your best bet will be to find someone to transfer the tapes to DVD for you.
