It may be timing out. Is the camera in standby mode? If yes, put it in record and lock.
I have an XL1 and a GL1 that sometimes shuts down. Is there a tape in the camera? It will time out sometimes if there is no tape rolling. Even if I am capturing directly to a computer, I always roll a tape, just to keep the camera from timing out.
What does your battery guage read in the viewfinder? A low battery will shut you down without warning. Try running from the power adapter if you have one.

you must open the r.control and clean the keypad , for dust, corrosion, oxide, and try again. Clean the contacts spring, replace the battery, and tight the spring with plier for better contact.

I have the Roland Boss Rc-20xl Loop Station, and I'm running off of batteries I have been since I got the pedal. In the middle of recording a phrase the pedal shut off and started resetting itself...


Hello!
I am not positive on this but I would try to clear all of the loops. Try holding the right pedal for about 5 seconds.
If that does not work, hold the right pedal for about seconds while you turn off the unit. Release the right pedal then turn the unit back on.
Hope that helps!

Chrysler sebring trunk lock wont latch and stay shut and locked


On the Sebring, there is a small switch on the trunk where it latches. Right in the middle, there is a small button you can push, which will allow the trunk door to shut. It just needs reset. Right where it goes down to lock at.

It seems your recording head is dirty, i would advise running a cleaning tape through it regularly or have the camera cleaned and checked at a Canon service.

When I hit the record button my camera shuts down. The battery is fully charged, there's plenty of memory. It'll stay on while I watch a movie, but when I hit record the screen goes blank and shuts off...


Check and clean the battery contacts as this is sometimes the fault when the camera draws more power and due to dirty or poor contacts on the battery or the camera contacts the camera shuts down due to low power. Hope that works.

Cubase shuts down every time I try to process a recorded file


Hi Melimiti,
You are not the only one with this problem. Cubase is quite a complicate software. If reinstalling does not help we need to have a CLEAN Install on a new OS. If the problem still persist contact the vendor for the product exchange.

DVD Recorder


During MY long, intensive, painful research concerning the EXACT same problems, I've discovered that in ONE circumstance, these problems are caused whenever the recorder has INPUT (COAX, AV, etc), from a CABLE box!!!! Assuming the controls haven't already frozen, I disconnected the CABLE box from the recorder, and the recorder "came back to life!!!" And this, after bring my recorder in for "repair", THREE TIMES!!! Now, the only thing to resolve is: how to connect the CABLE BOX to the recorder--WITHOUT using any of the recorder's input jacks!!!! Progress, right?
