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.

Can anybody simply tell me my red recording button of xl1s does not work, what to do

If the lock feature isn't stopping it from engaging then there's a problem with the microswitch the resides behind the button or something to do with the camera's electronics.

If removing the battery for at least 60 minutes and any date/time battery the camera may use for just as long doesn't reset the camera your only option might be to send it in to Canon for service. The good news is Canon is usually very fast in their repairs.

My canon xl1s is crackling all the time even with the mic plugged out. What can I do to fix this.

Chances are there is a lose connection to the audio jack. Do it do this when the camera is on a tripod or flat, sturdy surface with no movement? If you are adventurous enough you could find a repair manual online and attempt to open the area where the audio/mic inputs are and check the connectons there. if that's not the issue then it could be in the audio circuts and require professional repair.

You also might try an audio input through the audio line in or aux audio input and see if that stops it.

Have an IX1s Canon camcorder. Flashing red screen icon.

it means a particular battery is low or out of the camera, which hold the date and time memory of your videos. don't worry it doesn't affect your any recording or playback of videos. I have one and is blinking from past one month. no issues at all.

Tape crrier

you must have broken the latch for the tape carrier, you have to have it sent to canon, or a reputable camera repair shop to have it fixed.

Tape will not eject servo reaches halfway but sticks XL1s

Try this...

Hit the eject button. As soon as it makes it half way, take the battery out.
Leave the white cover open, put the battery back in.

This should take the tape cartridge up all the way and eject the tape.

I had the same problem and it ejected the defective tape
