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.

See if there is some sort of reset button that will restore your unit to the condition it came as new. If you cannot locate, give Panasonic a call and they will advise.

U can also unplug from wall to see if it erases prior settings and resets.

Cant get it off of the pause feature


press pause button again, wait for it to respond
(make sure door is closed)

if that doesn't work, press and hold pause button until something happens.

if that doesn't work, power off, then restart

if pause is on all the time, and never resets, even after power down/up your button is stuck/broken, fix/replace button or panel.

When I use the timer to record a TV show with my DVD-R155, unit locks up.


If you can afford it purchase a TIVO. I had a a video and dvd player and it drove me mad. This unit records 2 programs at once with just the press of a button.
you can watch tv at the same time. Also you can rewind situations on live tv to watch it again. Top unit. I am 73 and I have no problem using it. Love it!

How do I get my Meowsic keyboard to record? The record button lights up when I hit it, but nothing happens when I hit the play button.


We just got one of these today at a thrift shop. I thought it was supposed to record what you say into the microphone but it doesn't. It records your "compositions". Press "record" then play something on the keyboard. Then hit "Play" and it should play it back for you.

I have recorded an outgoing message. However, at the end of the new outgoing message an old obsolete outgoing message starts to play. How do I get rid of the old outgoing message?


Hi,
You will need to remove the old message. There SHOULD be prompts. IF NOT try going to a very quiet room and hit record but do not say or make noise and this will record silence over the old and new message. Then attempt to retry.
ALSO - look for a 'reset' button and remove all batteries if you have power outage back up batteries.
Unplug the phone - and try again.
Here are the instructions from the manual:
To Change Your Personal Greeting:
1. Press the Check Voicemail key or press the Feature button, then 981
2. Enter your password
3. Press the ADMIN softkey
4. Press the GREET softkey
5. Press the REC softkey
6. Press the PRIME softkey
7. Press the YES softkey
8. At the tone, record your new greeting, press the OK softkey to end your recording and then the OK softkey again to accept the new recording

Best of it

Hi there are only 2 letters on the screen CL and the machine does not work why? it was working ok but when i was moving something on the back this letters came on on the little computer CL and now nothing...


The Child Lock feature is accidentally activated during the move. It can be deactivated by pressing and holding a button or combination of two buttons. Look for a button or adjacent buttons with the child or padlock symbol between them. Press and hold the button or buttons simultaneously until the CL on the display turns off. The Child Lock feature can be activated by pressing and holding the same button or buttons. You can also find this procedure in the Instructions Manual of your machine.

Handycam CCD TR517 Doesn't record


These models have a switch for 3 different modes of record. one where you press the red button once, one for having to hold the red button in and a 5 second record feature, check this mode. also check and make sure the tape you are using did not have the record save switch slid into record save position..

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.

Proscan vcr plus gold stuck in lock


I just had the same problem and found a solution on the internet that worked. Hopefully you still have the VCR's remote control. Press and hold either the on/off, VCR1 or VCR2 button on the remote. I pressed the VCR1 button and held it for about 5-7 seconds. It released the lock and worked fine afterwards. The lock is some kind of childlock devise.
