Hey, my camera freaked out on me today and I am just seeing if anyone has ever had the same problem or has any advice because I have no idea what happened at all. It was fine a week ago, which was the last time I used it. Today I took it out and when i tried to record, the viewfinder as well as the pull out screen both showed nothing but wierd teal and yellow designs all over the screen. I tried recording and it also showed up as just different colors. I can play back my videos fine, but I can't record. I tried charging it, putting in different tapes, everything I could think of but I have just never seen this before and I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this before. Here is the info on my camera. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
Canon ZR 80 (A) mini dv
Lens: 360x, 18x
I use sony tapes
I bought it in 2003 and never had a problem until today.
