Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Canon ZR200 digital video camcoeder and there are lines that show up on my recordings. I have cleaned the heads 3 times and it has not helped. I have seen someone post that maybe the the video assembly could be replaced. Where is that and how easy is it to replace?


Answers :

I know of no such designated part being "the video assembly", but I'm sure they were referring to the whole video cartridge assembly, which would probably be expensive to fix, even if you fix it yourself. If the heads are clean, the lines are probably caused by a slightly loose ribbon connector that connects to the main control board. This is not an easy fix, since the unit has to be disassembled to get at the connector. If you're a pretty mechanically inclined person, you might be able to do it yourself. If you decide to have some else service it, tell them the symptoms, and get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can be quite high.
