I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE A PROBLEM EXCEPT TRYING TO USE A GENERIC TAPE TO RECORD IN HD AND THEN EXPECTING IT TO PLAYBACK IN HD. IT WASN'T MADE FOR THAT AND WON'T WORK FOR HD. IF YOU ARE GOING TO USE A HD CAMERA, YOU NEED TO USE THE CORRECT HD TAPES TO EXPECT THEM TO WORK AND PLAYBACK CORRECTLY. WHY WOULD YOU BUY ONE OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE CAMERAS ON THE MARKET AND THEN USE A $2.00 TAPE AND TRY TO PLAY IT ON A $2000.00 CAMERA AND WONDER WHY IT DOESN'T WORK? BUY GOOD QUALITY TAPES.

Canon XL series will indicate "remove tape" sign when the head does not read the data when inserted. You probably have clogged head and probably needs cleaning. Depending on the condition of the clogged head, you can try by running head cleaning tape for about 10 sec. If that does not resolve, it shoud be cleaned and adjusted by trained technicians. Good Luck. If need a professional help, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Sorry to hear your situation, usually when serviced by a technician, head and tape path is cleaned and adjusted. During use you will encounter pixelation problems occur and most case tape cleaner should resolve the problem. Your condition is where if all the system is ok and have a heavy clogging on the heads, requires technician to clean each head manually to bring it back. so look for a camcorder repair facility locally and get cleaned. If you cannot find one, the service is provided for around $100 at www.camerarepairjapan. Good Luck

The video heads may be clogged. Depending on the severity of clogging, if minor, you can clean the heads with the head cleaning tape other option would be manual and direct cleaning by technician. First, open the tape loading area for dust removal by canned air, clean pinch roller with Q-Tip using denatured alchohol and try it. If it did not do the job. Assigne it to a technician for about $99 for a professional cleaning. Good luck -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com
