Question about Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Turn On & Connection Problems

I have had a canon ZR60 digital miniDV camcorder for a while now. Over time (short time, unfortunatelly) the camcorder has developed a few very compromising problems. Hopefully, someone has experienced these and can provide advice... 1. The Camcorder, seemingly in a whim, will refuse to turn on properly. It gets frozen on the blue 'Canon' splash screen. Sometimes, if you push the red 'Record' button, it records the sound that the mic picks up but records the splash screen as ther image. While this is happening, however, none of the usual display info and sattings can be displayed and the cancorder appears to be 'hung'. The cancorcer has suffered no serious falls or water damage, so up to this point I have no plausible explination for this phenonenon. (It only happens when on vacation, never once at home) 2. My PC (AMS Athlon Barton 2800+ 2.2ghz, 1GB DDR, WinXP, Firewire 400) does not see or recognize my ZR60. When I plug in the firewire and turn the camera to the transfer and playback mode, the pug and play hardware detected pop-up does not appear. When I start a video caputure and editing program (Vegas, Pinnacle Studio 8,Ulead Video Studio) the software does not detedt the camcorder. I have also tried to use a different firewire card and cable, to no avail. Thank You in advance for any help, usefull and otherwise.

I have the same problem with my zr60. The firewire port on 3 macs and one PC will not detect the camera in VCR or camera mode. I have the feeling the firewire port in the camera died since the ports in the computers is able to detect other firewire devices.

I have a canon ZR60 camcorder with a "black

Yes, these units in particular have a common problem with the CCD sensors. It is not exactly an inexpensive repair, and if you had to pay for it yourself, would probably exceed the value of the camera. Contact Canon support as they may replace the CCD for free or under a special warranty, since the problem was so pervasive. If Canon won't replace it for you, you probably need to look into a new camcorder.

I have a Canon ZR60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder It seems to work pretty good except when you rewind the tape. it mangles the tape near the end of the rewind every time. Makes watching anything on...

Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated but they can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be diagnosed by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.
