Question about Canon ZR400 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon ZR40 would not turn on

Our Canon mini DV ZR40 was used quite a lot for the first year, then we slowed down the usage, my last use was two years ago, seems the battery was not so good, so I had to have the power plugged in. After that, maybe a year later, I could no longer turn on the camcorder. Even with power plug-in, when turning it to "on", nothing happened. Does anyone have any idea what could be broken with my canon ZR40? Thanks in advance.

    I have the same problem. I purchased a new battery, charged it up per the instructions, installed it and nothing happens. Even the power light won't come on. The same holds true using the battery eliminator. Any suggestions? And, yes it is the correct battery, charger and eliminator.

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.

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.

There is a flashing red light with a line between on canon ZR40 what does this mean


That is the symbol for the backup battery. It's a button-type battery that keeps enough power to remember the date and time when the main battery is removed. If the icon is lit, it means this battery should be replaced. Check your manual for location and type of battery. If you need, you can view and download the manual here.

Can you copy your tapes to a computer?


Hello friend,
The Canon ZR40 Mini DV Camcorder has the port "Firewire" so you can copy your tapes to a computer. you will need to check your computer if it has also a firewire socket (All the new laptops have it).
You don't need any drive software, Windows has all the necessary drivers built in. You can use Windows Movie Maker for the capture, but if you want to burn your finished movies onto DVD then look at something like Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0 which is one stop shop application (Capture,edit and burn). you can download a 30 days trial and try it out and see if it's what you want before buying it.
Best Regards,

Canao zr40 dv camera


If the volume won't turn up there could be many problems her are the criteria for different answers:
• the volume 'wave' goes up like it should, but no sound comes out, no matter how loud you put it- the speaker has most likely been disconnected from the circuit board.
• you push the volume up/down button, but nothing happens, at all, not even the sound 'wave' The volume up/down button/switch has been disconnected

Last alternative guess that works for both:
the software doesn't recognize the pushing of the button.
how to fix, best buy, circuit city, they'll help you reconnect the wires, and maybe the software too.
if it is the speaker, try putting in a pair of headphones, if it has a headphone jack that is

Problems after 1 year of no usage


I would take into a shop and have them look at it. There appears to be something in the electronics that isn't comming up if it isn't working with a new battery or when it's plugged into an electrical outlet.
