Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
If your recorder is suffering from condensation problems then an icon in the shape of a teardrop will appear on the LCD and there will be a beep or beeping. Just beeping and the eject is being done to protect the tape. What it's actually protecting the tape against isn't explained but it could be tape slack or broken or an outright fault within the the recorder. The beeping could be an RF problem, meaning the heads are still dirty. Perhaps a word with a local tech who may have come across the same problem because you're not the only one with it.

Does the unit say anything about moisture? This sounds like a moisture fault. Leave the unit open for a day in a dry area and try it. If it is moisture and everything is OK this should solve your problem. If it doesn't solve your problem you could have a bad moisture detector. This is a small square metal looking device near the video drum with two wires hooked to it. It's job is to protect the camcorder and keep it from damaging tapes when moisture is present in the unit. The simplist way to verify if it is defective is to jump a wire across the two connections and try the unit. If it works this is your problem and you will need it replaced. A good repair shop should be able to do it for about $50 US. Two websites which give free estimates are http://www.videotech.com and http://www.camcorderrepair.com Good luck.
