Question about Canon XL1S Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

No Replay I am new with Video, but 32 years with all other formats. I have a Used Xl1s I see what I am shooting on the monitor as well as a big monitor. But I can not get to Rewind and play? I feel like a beginner, which I am in this case. I even tried two DV Cassets. Please help. Philip ---     p-coblentz@dslx.net   954-917-5682

The turn off control on my canon Xl1s is not working, every time I switch the control to the off position the camera instead of turning off stays on, the only way to turn the camera off is by taking off...


The most likely cause is a defective mode switch. This will require disassembly and trouble-shooting to be certain and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be looked at by a qualified technician.

Canon XL1S EJECT TAPE DISPLAY WITH NEW TAPE ... what is the solutions for this


This can be caused by several problems including a bad video drum, the transmission gear in the tape mechanism not engaging properly or a defective clutch in the take-up spool and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Hi there When I shoot in 16x9 widescreen with my Canon XL1 the viewfinder shows the same image as when shooting in 4x3. Can this be adjusted. Regards John


It is not showing the same image, it is showing the 16x9 squished down to the 4x3 aspect ratio. I thought I had the same thing at first too. But to check & make sure set up a shot of something square in one or the other shooting ratios. Then go into the menu & set it up on the 16x9 on/off. To make it easier to see the picture hook up to a monitor to see the picture without squinting through the eye piece. Now while you are watching the picture switch the 16x9 on & off on the camera. If you started in 16x9 the square will lengthen from side to side in 4x3, while the square in 4x3 will become squished on the sides. If you can't tell, take a piece of tape [removable tape that is] and make the sides of the box before & after you change the aspect ratio.

How can I fix a burn spot on canon video camera xl1s?


It could be a burned pixel. If so you will need to replace the ccd imager block. If it shows up only in the viewfinder and not played back or viewed on a different monitor, then the bad pixel is in the viewfinder. Which you can replace the viewfinder but, if you oinly see it there & not in the final product, save your money &n live with it.
