Question about Canon ZR100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon ZR10 not displaying recorde image.

Hi,

I have just transferred a bunch of my old miniDV tapes to PC using Canon ZR-10. One day later, when I tried to play them again in the same camcorder, I only see a blue screen with all the indicators. It is almost like all the tapes got erased, which they did not, because all of them had erase protection at the time of transfer.
When I tried to record a video, the camera acted normally, showing the image that it was supposedly recording and all the correct indicators on the screen, but when I tried to play the recording back, I got the same blue screen again.
The kicker is that it is not my camera and I now will have to repair it since it happened while in my hands.

PLEASE HELP!!!

MiniDV camcorder.


Have you tried recording new video to a new tape and trying to play it? Your old tapes could have become corrupt.

What brand/model of camera do you have? What type of connection are you using to the TV? Composite or S-Video?

Thanks.

Hi! my sony dcr-trv265e can play the tapes via the video and tv but when i re-record over them its just a blank blank screen? so i need anothe tape or can i record over old tapes?


Sony and the other media suppliers do not recommend re-recording over any digital tapes, including MiniDV. Re using tapes can lead to dropouts and errors after only a few times. With MiniDV prices so inexpensive these days (in the grand scheme of things), is there any reason NOT to use new tape? Also, many companies keep all their MiniDV tapes as a kind of stock footage archive. You never know when you might need a shot that you have already filmed, and it saves considerable time and money to pick the tape off the shelf.

I have a Canon ZR90A and started noticing horizontal gray lines displaying across the screen when it plays back. What is causing this?


The most common cause of horizontal lines during playback is dirty heads/tape path. If you have a head cleaner tape, try playing it for about 5 to 10 seconds and then try your tape again. Repeat as necessary. Try not to run the head cleaner for long periods of time because you may wear down your heads quicker (cleaning cassette is somewhat abrasive). If you do not own a head cleaning tape, I highly recommend purchasing one. Sony (in my opinion) makes the best miniDV head cleaning cassette. We use this brand in our repair shop and they last for years. I have posted a link to the particular tape I am speaking of. Your local camera/camcorder shop may have these for sale.

Canon ZR 45 Won't Eject Tape


That would be the take up or supply reel fault. It may also be a mode position error. Try here for advice but I don't advise tackling this job without full service instruction manual for the deck. No idea of your country so try here first;

Camcorder Canon ZR 200


First if you have a very bad tape (miniDV) (hard to turn by your hand) the camera will automatically eject coz it cant load the tape to it. it is not a head problem. It seems that you have a mechanical loading issue here. But try to put new miniDV tape. ANd post here what happen. PS Dont use compress gas to clean it you might put new problem. Please use only the head cleaner tape (MiniDV) if you want to clean the head. Hope this may help you

Transfer Problem


I just went through exactly what you are describing and my solution was to install a Firewire card. The DV cable transfers my video's from the camera's cassette to my PC with no breakdown in quality. I'm very happy with this. The USB only works with the memory card, (quality is lost) Got my Firewire card on Ebay cheap, and it came with the cable and the software.
