Question about Canon XL H1 HDV Digital Camcorder
Today I turned set up my camera and when I turned it on I saw zebra stripes going horizontally on my viewfinder and was a bit annoyed. I turned off the camera and turned it back on and resulted with the same issue. So turned off the camera, tighten the cord that plugs to the camera and turned it back on. I notice the very dark image on my viewfinder. I thought that it was because of the location that I was at but tried to lighten the screen. Nothing seemed to work, tried exposure and nearly all that I could think off through the display menu. It is really dark now and I can barely tell what I'm looking at unless I angle it to a bright light then I can be able to make out what is going on in the viewfinder. I'm not sure if it's some settings that I need to change or if it's damaged which I hope it's not. Your help is greatly appreciated.
Hi . .
I downloaded the manual . . found I needed to replace the 3 volt lithium battery
located on the underside of the hand grip for the zoom.
Changed the battery . . . No red flashing icon in the viewfinder.
