Canon zr100 digital video camcorder won't record or show picture on screen
I have a 1 1/2 year old camcorder. It worked fine until the other day when, for no apparent reason, it won't show anything on the screen. It won't play a previously recorded mini dv nor will it record anything new. Also, it makes an unusual noise - it makes sort of a rhythmic whine. While it's on play or record, the screen indicates that the tape is moving, but there is a hum or high-pitched "whine" every 4 seconds or so - it's a very regular sound that continues until the power is turned off. I have tried to use the camcorder with both recorded and new tapes, and the result is the same either way. I have tried it on battery and plugged into a power source. Any suggestions?

It's turns blue to power safe mode (yellow) it's prevent futher damaged to your monitor. It's seems you got a busted backlight inverter. Need to replaced a new one...Since you only got it for a few months, send it back to Acer for a replacement of a new backlight inverter... Have a nice day!
Take the battery pack off and hit it (not too hard) with the palm of your hand. It SOUNDS CRAZY but my own camcorder had the exact same issue and all it took was one hit- put the battery back on then powered it up- VIOLA- it works! I am not kidding, try it. You'll save LOTS of $$$$$. This is NOT a joke.

I have no charge in my philips hdd82 player. Usually I just plug it into my computer via usb and a screen shows up on the player showing its connected and it charges. Usually it comes up as an MTP device on the computer so I can add mp3s as well. Now for no reason at all, when I plug it in, it doesn't charge and the computer doesn't recognize it. The screen shows an outlet when I plug it in so I know the cord works. It just won't let me do anything. When I press the on button with the cord unplugged, I can't do anything either b/c no charge. HELP. plz.
