Question about Canon ZR90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

3 Answers

ZR90-Shutter off Purchased camera in 2004. Last December it started showing a black screen in the middle of a shooting and not responding. Under "camera settings" menu the "shutter" is lit as "not working." The shutter opens, allowing the image to come in, at the will of the camera. We are wondering if this can be fixed or if we should just purchase another camera. Who can we take the camera to for them to take an honest look?

As the user said above several models had been affected by loose wires connecting the ccd. My zr70 was affected by this, I contacted Canon and an RMA was set up. Repair time was about 10 days and was delivered back working. Contact Canon, I had no problem with this even thought I purchased my Camera in 2004.

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..

Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

When shooting photo 2 black boxes appear

You caused internal damage. Canon will fix it if it is under the warranty you purchased, if any. If not, it may be in your best interest to just buy a new camera.

I am sorry about your luck

Kodak easyshare DX 7630 screen black in take a picture mode but is fine in review etc

Hey Wistra,
You could try resetting your camera to the factory settings by choosing the reset to default setting in the menu. If this doesn't work the sensor on the camera is most likely broken, and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. If the camera was purchased less than a year ago the repair would most likely be covered under manufacturers’ warranty. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
