Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I had the same problem, I see many reports of banging or thumping the tape door side of the camera, I shudder to think the damage that may possibly do but I tried it, No success.
So I had to find a better way to fix the condition. This is what I came up with.
Turn the camera on
With power on take out the battery
Turn camera on/off switch to off.
Reinstall the battery and turn camera on.
I had to do this a few times, the camera is working and still working today.
The answer, maybe a way to reset the cpu or controller in the camera, or jolt an electronic item in the camera......

Funny stuff. I went and bought a different camera because Canon told me I had to send it to them and pay for the repair. I found it in the closet after about 2 years and thought I'd take a shot at fixing it myself. I tried #2 didn't work and #1 obviously wasn't the problem. So, I jacked it around a little and boom! it started working. Magic.
