On some gl2s there are two gears inside the chassis that are defective it is the idler and drive assembly gear. You can tell if they are the defective ones by opening the cassette cover and look at the middle of the main chassis between the video heads. you will see a flat gear in the middle it should be white. If it is a black gear then it is definitly defective. In the middle of the gear there is a metal plate and it should have a blue dot on it. If it does not then it is no good and the two gears need to be replaced. It is a problem on dmc2 chassis's.

No DV output from Canon GL2. Using a firewire cable from DV port on camera to firewire port on Mac Pro tower. Attempting to import the camera live to Final Cut Pro. Previously worked just fine.


Was the tape your trying to import recorded on the camera you are trying to import from? I've noticed that sometimes the tape I recorded on my old Panasonic won't show up on my GL2. It's like it's a blank tape, but I know it's not, as I have it labeled. Stick it back into the panasonic and it plays fine.

My canon zr850 is rejecting mini dv tapes what do i do?


Sometimes this is caused by the tape itself, or more specifically, the tape case. If the tapes are labeled, there is a chance that the flap which lifts to expose the tape is stuck closed. Check this by locating just bellow the flap on the tape a recessed button. Press and hold it while opening the flap. If it's sticky, or stuck and is difficult to open, this is your problem. Make sure the flap opens unrestricted by removing the labels from the case which would hinder this motion. Hope this helps.

GL2 Tape comes out pixalized


You may have a heavy clogging of the heads. The head cleaning tape will not serve in this situation but manual head cleaing from trained technician. Head cleaning service shoud go around $100. Same symptom would happen when the tracking goes off on GL2 and this may cost more to adjust. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

My canon gl2 won't record because it keep telling me to eject the tape. I put in a new tape and the samething keeps on happening. What can I do about it?


You may be the victim of dirty clogged head. When the tape is incerted on GL2, it is searching for the data from the tape but if the heads are clogged it will not communicate so, the processing computer think the tape is damaged. Procedure to clean the head. This may not clean but let's try. Purchase a head cleaner tape and run it for about 10 seconds but not more. Try to insert regular clean tape and try it. If this does not resolve the problem, GL2 need cleaning and adjustment by technician. Good luck -James. For further assistance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

GL2 does ne rewind


I doubt it is something in the settings. Step 1: The tape may be causing the camera to "reject" it. In other words, it thinks there is something wrong with the tape so it is warning you with the error message. Perhaps the cassette has been damaged slightly. This error can also happen when the tape has been used often or taped over a few times. MiniDV tapes are not media that can be recorded over and over again. Solution: Try using a new tape. 2. The camera may need to be cleaned. The recording heads may be dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there. Solution: Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. These are cheap fixes. If it works, great. It would also be good to know what it CAN do. Does it play in the VCR mode? Does it record? And can you view it in the VCR mode? Has it changed in any other way, i.e. is it making a strange noise when it starts to rewind, when before it didn't? Let me know how it goes.
