Question about Canon XL1S PAL Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi, I have a Canon XL1s that I haven't used for around a year. I've just been getting it ready for a shoot on Tuesday. The batteries are all charged up but when I connect a battery and turn on the camera, the red power light turns on momentarily and then off again, then it'll come back on again and then off. It repeats this until I turn it off.
Looking in the viewfinder it tries to light up and then dies again. Then repeats this each time the power light comes on.
I also had to change the back-up battery.
I'm tearing my hair out trying to understand what is wrong and can't find anything in the manual relating to this. Please can someone advise urgently?!
The battery had probably died

If it has been left unused for a year,the battery had probably died - it may attempt to charge, but won't hold a charge. Replace it.
