I have a Canon ZR200 DV camcorder it seems its fuse if blown. how to replace it

Its service manual would include such instructions but I have no access to such. Rather, I can provide links to the user manual. Unfortunately, that user manual does not even mention fuses. You might check with Cannon to see if they will download a service manual to you. Otherwise, here is a manual to a similar Cannon product which does include instructions to fuse removal. Of course, it is unlikely the same fuses are used by both. Perhaps the fuses have ID numbers or that information can be supplied by Cannon support. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1681414/Canon-Mvx200-E.html?page=239 https://www.manualshelf.com/manual/canon/zr300/zr300-zr200-instruction-manual/page-137.html

Wont retract when putting in new tape

Oftentimes on a camera of this age the motor for the tape transport will go out. I've had it happen on two older models. Your only option if this happens on every tape is to send it in for repair to Canon. It can be spendy though.
