Canon zr45 wont record

All other features work but when you press the record button nothing happens. What could be the problem and is it something I could attempt to fix myself?

    Yes, I have the same problem. When I press the record button, nothing happens. I CAN sucessfully use the "photo" button to save a 5 second still picture to the tape. So this means the camera is cabable of recording to the tape. But not via the 'record' button.

My canon powershot SD280 sound wont work.. The sound turn on Okay, but the Video doesnt = It DID work and i dont know what happen to it !

hey boss- just figured this one out.

while the video is playing, you can increase the volume by pressing the button above the Func. Set center button and decrease the volume by pressing the button below the Func. Set button. Think we both accidentally turned the volume all the way down.

Too bad you can't tell this by going to the volume menu! Would have been nice to know I was still recording audio while shooting video. Hope this helps!

What is red blinking light on Cannon ZR45MC screen? Will it show up on DV tape?

Hello, I just bought a canon zr45 today off a friend without the owners manual. I had the same problem. It is flashing because it needs a new 3 volt lithium battery. This is a back up battery. It is located underneath the regular battery pack. Take the regular battery pack off and you will see where it goes. I changed mine and it doesn't do it anymore. It shouldn't show up on your recordings. It didn't on mine. Also, you can download an owners manual for free off the internet. Just key in canon zr45 owners manual and you will see links that will take you there. I hope this helps.

Menu Button not working, can't record

There must be some keys active after you press Menu. Like you said, it must be waiting for you. After you hit Menu have you tried all the numbers and arrows?

If you can't get any of them to respond (except hitting Menu again to exit the menu) perhaps you need to try a different manufacturer code for your device. For example, if you have Brand ABC Model XYZ, perhaps the valid remote codes are 012, 013, and 014. Even if you have found that 012 works for most things but you can't record, you should try programming the remote to codes 013 and 014 and see what happens. There could be slight differences between the codes that allow most features to work, but not ALL features, just as you are experienceing. Good luck.

Record button doesn't function

You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well. Good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org
