Question about Canon XH A1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Playback STD Locked Playback is Restricted message

Hello,
I recorded two hours of footage on my Canon XH A1 camcorder. When I simply tried to play it back on my LCD screen, the LCD screen gives the message "Playback STD Locked Playback is Restricted". Is my footage gone, or does something need to be set properly (what are the steps to set it properly) for it to playback. And yes, as you probably know, I am very new to camcorders in general. Thanks for your help.

    Hello, thanks for trying Snowsurfer58. I actually figured out the problem on my own. I am sure you would have too, if I had described the problem more clearer, and I apologize for that. I neglected to say that the first part of the tape I attempted to playback was playing okay. Someone (a professional) had recorded about ten minutes of footage in HDV, and that played back okay. After viewing a tutorial from VASST on how to use the Canon XH A1, I change the camcorder to record in SD mode. Well, in essence, I was attempting to playback footage recorded in SD in HDV mode. Once I got into the menu on the Canon XH A1 and went into "Signal Setup" and changed the Playback mode to DV, my footage played back fine. It's probably not a good idea to record footage in HDV and DV on the same tape, but again, I am new to all of this. Thanks again for your help and quick response.

The tape most likely has the lock switched on, it's secured so no one can even view it, why it happend, beats me, look at the bottom of the tape, if it has the lock switch, and is pushed up to "lock" push it back down, if  that doesn't work than I'm not sure, sorry.
hope this helped- snowsurfer58

I recorded 2 hours of footage this passed weekend, just as I was finishing the head cleaner warning came up. I ran the tape through. I tried reviewing my footage today with playback and it is acting like...


I've had a similar problem, the solution to mine was that one of the tape heads had moved out of position by a fraction and so it was having problems tracking back through the tape footage... if you put in a tape that you know isn't blank and press play then hold fastforward to skip through the tape can you see footage on the tape fast forwarding? If so you need an engineer to realign the tape heads for you.

Please help me...When I connect my canon xh a1 to FCP 6.0 it says Unable to Initialize Capture Device Device is not connected or the capture preset is not setup correctly. You may still log offline...


Try playing the tape before connecting up to the mac with the firewire and before loading FCP up. Usually fixes it for me when using either iMovie to import or FCP

While trying to upload video i get std playback is locked


According to page 89 of the manual (available here), you need to set the playback standard (HDV/DV) of the camcorder to match the standard used when recording the tape. Instructions for doing this are on page 40 of the manual.

Getting poor quality uploads to my pc from my Canon XH-A1


You need to upgrade you ingest system. Windows Media Player(and your system card) probably can't handle the load. Try "Scenalyzer" it's economical, versatile and stable( http://scenalyzer.com/).

When I capture HDV footage from my XH A1 to Final Cut Pro 5, the footage is out of sync. The video is playing like in 110%, or something like that. The original footage is in 24f mode. It doesnt happen in...


Make sure the properties for the project you start after the ingest match the frame rate you used to record. Reads like 29.97 speed setting looking at images recorded at 24f.

Check your little lock and standby lever at the back of your hand strap, its likely positioned between standby and lock.
