Question about Canon ZR70MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Digital video camcorder

I purchased a canon mini dv 4-5 years ago and not used in 2-3 years. I recently tried it and could not power it up. I replaced the thin 3v battery, still no luck. Any ideas?

Try the most obvious solutions first; making sure the AC adapter for the camera is plugged into the camcorder-- and the plug orientation is correct if applicable, and it is in turn plugged into the wall.
Is the wall outlet working? Try another location in your home to be sure. Is the AC adapter working? If you have a battery, attach it to the camera and see if it charges. Next, look for obvious outward physical damage to the camcorder that could cause it to stop working.
The thin battery you speak of if generally just for backing up the time and date, and is not needed for operation.
The power switch on Canon models is usually a slider that goes from Manual to Auto to VCR mode. If it is dirty or wearing out, move it a small amount to one side or the other, while watching the LED power indicator. If you see it flash, or light dimly, the switch is bad.
Read the manual-- the unit may have a reset function you can access, or require a tape in it to power up. Hope these help.

I have a GR-DX77 mini DV Camcorder and the LCD screen has no power, it is set to LCD priority. When I last used over a year ago all was working. Hope you can help Sheila


The internal battery needs replacing - it is kept charged by the main battery, but if that is not used, the other battery runs down as well.

Batteries may need to be recharged or replaced if the error persists after battery recharge or replacement the unit may require a service evaluation. If the batteries currently in the device and it is not working properly, remove the batteries and wait for 30 seconds and re-insert the batteries. In doing so if your camera has a back-up or date and time battery, remove this battery as well. Removal of the back-up battery will cause a full reset of the camera and will clear any settings, including date and time.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

No Video on LCD or in Viewfinder


It is nearly 14 years old. I should give it an honourable retirement, and purchase a more modern replacement.

Canon ZR40 would not turn on


The battery is probably so dead it is using all the power from the wall supply.  Remove the battery, and run only from the wall supply.
