Tape won't come out!

I had the exact same problem, and just by dumb luck, I managed to get the tape compartment to pop open after trying hundreds of things. Maybe this will work for you too...who knows??? What I did was to first remove the battery and AC power to "reset" the camera (I guess). I then put the battery back in place and WHILE HOLDING THE CAMERA IN THE UPRIGHT (AS IF USING THE CAMERA FOR VIDEO) POSITION, I pushed the "Open/Eject" latch. VIOLA!!! Like I said, it may be dumb luck, but I haven't had the problem again. It may be that gravity helped to take the stress off the ejecting mechanism...dunno???? BTW, when I was having the problem, the mechanism would "click" 3 or 4 times while trying to move the tape out. Good luck!!! I hope this helps someone!

I have a Canon ZR200 DV camcorder it seems its fuse if blown. how to replace it

Its service manual would include such instructions but I have no access to such. Rather, I can provide links to the user manual. Unfortunately, that user manual does not even mention fuses. You might check with Cannon to see if they will download a service manual to you. Otherwise, here is a manual to a similar Cannon product which does include instructions to fuse removal. Of course, it is unlikely the same fuses are used by both. Perhaps the fuses have ID numbers or that information can be supplied by Cannon support. https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1681414/Canon-Mvx200-E.html?page=239 https://www.manualshelf.com/manual/canon/zr300/zr300-zr200-instruction-manual/page-137.html

My canon gl2 lcd screen and viewfinder black

Same thing happened to me. No display, no menu, no S-video output while in camera mode, but in VCR mode all was OK. Turning power off and on did not help until I also disconnected the AC power adapter. BTW, Mr. Riggins did not read the question before he answered.

Canon xl 1s won't power up. Power light flashes,

Just fixed this problem. It is one of the three main fuses that have blown out. This is not supposed to be consumer accessible or fixable, but I did it.
Open up the camera case using the 5 allen head screws disconnect the top ribbon cable going to the playback buttons on the handle. on the main board (behind the tape deck) are 3 tiny square black fuses The top fuse FU3201 is the VTR The middle fuse FU3200 is the Motor The bottom fuse FU3202 is the Camera/Lense
The bottom fuse was my culprit. I found a tiny piece of copper and bent it into a U shape and slipped it over the fuse so that it touched the metal terminals on both sides and bypassed the fuse. This fixed the problem.
Haven't used the camera extensively since, but shoot about 10 hrs a week with 2 xl1's and will post if anything happens.

Canon Camcorder ES970 Viewfinder is dark in record mode.

It is listed as an antique. I don't think you are supposed to be using it. I can't even find a manual on it. https://global.canon/en/c-museum/product/8mmvc394.html I was hoping there might be two brightness settings, one for record and one for playback https://www.google.com/search?q=canon+es970+8mm+video+camcorder+manual ..

Why is my Canon ES970A 8mm video recorder now playing my recorded videos with static and no sound?

This could be caused by a lot of things. Recording tape oxidizes over time and loses its range and ability to store information. There is nothing you can do about that. Another thing could be the heads in the device being dirty or out of alignment or needing to be demagnetized.

Canon V40 HiE - No manual and can't find the charging port

The charging port is at the back of the camera directly below the battery. To the right of the port is the lettering - DC IN 8.4V. The charger is a two prong AC plug at one end, a black box in the middle (approx the size of 2 decks of playing cards) and then your plug to the camera. I believe the total length is approx 2 feet long.

Peace

Chad
