From point of techinician, the noise may caused by the setting of video gain and other settings by the user and also make sure machanically sound by keeping video heads cleaned and functioning well. Check all the setting to defauld and clean video head by using head cleaing tape for about 5 seconds. see if this helps. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

My canon mini dv camera model no> xl2 is in


If you can't find the manual on Canon's website it's probably not a good idea to go elsewhere. Your best bet is to send it in to Canon and have their techs repair it.

Our Canon XL2 has problem with Terminal DV and Terminal. The screw is loose inside. It's totally not work. CAn you fix it? We are in San Jose area, Can we have your phone number?


It's fairly easy to do there's a video on Vimeo on how to do it. I personally suggest you get a ground strap from fry's before attempting this fix. only 5 screws or so to disassemble the unit and I'd suggest you don't disconnect the 2 flex cables between both halves because they're a pain to align just right and you'll definitely pop a main fuse if not seated properly. The main fuse is about the size of a grain of sand and a pain to install.

My pc doesn't reckognize the canon xl2 when connected by firewire


Well, I hate that when it happens so we changed test-bed computer to Mac. The software runs as soon as two hardware, pc and XL2 is connected physically. I do not have knowledge on prem pro 1.5. but from technician's point of view, if both machines I/O hardwares are ok rest of the reponsibility depending on the program. This is how I would do it. 1. Restart the computer 2. open only the related program and have it ready for connect. 3. turn on XL2 on VCR mode, test make sure it plays few second. 4. connect the firewire. Hope this works otherwise, I will re-install the program and try. Beyond that point, it's good to consult with a local technician for diagnostic of your XL2 first. -James

Canon XL2 wont record or playback tapes - grey


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

How to hook wireless mic to canon xl2


Plug it into Audio 1 ports, switch to audio, not mic on the physical camera, then check that you have selected stereo 12 bit, 1,2 from the record audio menu.
Also note you have to push the button next to the audio meter to monitor different sources.
