The GL2 works with SD cards. Your 16GB card is an SDHC card. While SDHC cards will fit into the slot, they are electronically incompatible and will not work in devices not designed for them. You need to use an SD card, 2GB or smaller.

SOURCE: Can't upload the videos.

Go to the Canon website and look up support and see if you can download the proper software for your camcorder.

The Mini SD card can be used for anything you like, it's up to your camcorder if it can be used to save video to it, check your manual or the website. Videos are huge in comparison to most SD card sizes so unless you are shooting really short videos, I'd say no you can't save the videos to it.

Take the battery out & anything else that's plugged in to it that includes CD's in the drive / SD cards / Internet Dongles etc... & then plug the charger in & then Switch the machine on, the second you hit the power button start tapping on the F2 key until the BIOS SET UP screen appears.
You'll know when your in it,It's usually got a blue background with 4 or 5 Tabs going across the top of the screen....MAIN ' ADVANCED ' SECURITY ' BOOT ' EXIT ' or something like that,Go to exit with the arrow keys,select load default settings then save & exit it should reboot.

Memory card needs formatted is displayed on the screen. Deleted the pictures and it still comes up. Tried to take more pictures and the memory card would not hold. Is there something wrong with the camera...


I assume you have an SD card. If it's bigger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card and will not work in the ZD710.

No, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong. The card just needs to be formatted. In any mode press the Menu button. Press right-arrow to select the Setup tab (camera and wrench) then press OK. Press up/down-arrow to select "Format" then press OK.

Make sure you format the memory card. It's okay to format the internal memory, of course, but your current problem appears to be that the card needs to be formatted.

I have a Sony, 54" Projection Screen HDTV that I bought in 2002. I believe it is a 1080i. When I am waatching TV, I notice that when the screen is mostly black, for instance a night scene, the black areas...


Confirm the actual model number as the one indicated in the title is not HD.

Some of these sets had bad picture tubes that on a black screen or blank video input may in your case show faint curved lines and or some color (red,green or blue) present in the background.

If this is the case there is a fairly simple way to attempt to adjust something for this--not in the customer menu but fairly easy to get at and try.


Most of these sets were KP51ws500, 57500 etc.

Cannot retrieve pictures from internal hard drive. Don't have a dock for this camera. Is there any way to get them onto a SD card?


If you do not have the USB cable, insert an SD card and turn the camera on. Enter playback mode (Pressing the "|>"button), press Left/right arrow to select the icon of a camera and an SD card, it should say "Copy to card", arrow down to Yes and press Okay.

My sony grand wega gives a blue shade on the black background which is the problem


HI, Check the menu set up of the TV. There should be an alignment feature that aligns the blue, red, and green colour projectors. If the blue is out of alignment that is likely why you can see it on the dark backgrounds. The set up normally puts a white cross on the screen and you select each of these colours and then move the cross over the white on with the arrows on your remote. Once all are aligned correctly you shouldn't be able to distinguish between different colours and hopefully this should get rid of your blue shade.

The screen has a rainbow of red blue and green on bottom


The specs say this is a CRT type projection system, so it could be related to the display or to the TV. Since this has an SD card, it might be good to plug in the memory card with some pictures on it, and see if the problem persists with a source other than the tuner. That might at least narrow down whether you have a display failure/adjustment issue or something else.
