Question about Canon ZR200 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My ZR200 has been doing the same thing for the past year and a half. I have not called Cannon yet, but i did notice that whenever I charge the camcorder next to the TV the lines often return. My unoffical thought is that the magnetic field that surrounds componets such as a TV may be disrupting something in the field of the camcorder when itis so close. Do not take this as the gospel, it is something I will be continue to monitor. But mine always starts working after I move it from the perch by the TV. Just a thought.

My post was from Jan 26. Sent my Canon MV800i into Canon directly under warranty for repairs (after being told by local distributor that the head was gone). Also previously tried head cleaner but made no difference. The camera came back 2 weeks later fixed, but the report said there was no fault found ! Still no closer to finding out what caused it...just hope it doesn't happen again.

I had the same problem twice with my ZR80. The first time Canon fixed free of charge since it was in warranty. It worked for 3 years, and I just had problem again. I sent it to Canon and they wanted $180 to fix... I called Canon and asked for a manager and told him that I read about a recall on it in 2005, they are fixing it for free now. Check out information about recall in october 2005.

What do you mean by "Its only when i go to record or view previous recording"? in what situation doesn't it show the gray lines? What about the viewfinder? do you get lines there aswell? If you don't see the gray lines when you transfer the video out of the camera, then you don't have a head problem, a screen problem maybe. Don't hurry to use cleaner tapes because they can hurt the head, the actual cleaning procedure is one that scrapes the head and leaves some damage. more info please
