My canon gl2 won't play anything in vcr mode. It plays the tape but it is as if the tape is blank. I even tried recording a few secs and then rewind to play back but still nothing. I have been...


This is usually caused by an oxidized, misaligned or defective Audio/Video drum. You can try running a cleaning tape through the camera. If this does not solve the problem the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified service technician.

No DV output from Canon GL2. Using a firewire cable from DV port on camera to firewire port on Mac Pro tower. Attempting to import the camera live to Final Cut Pro. Previously worked just fine.


Was the tape your trying to import recorded on the camera you are trying to import from? I've noticed that sometimes the tape I recorded on my old Panasonic won't show up on my GL2. It's like it's a blank tape, but I know it's not, as I have it labeled. Stick it back into the panasonic and it plays fine.

GL2 is eating or damaging tapes.


Thgis is a fault in the tape transport mechanism.

It should go for service To open this and try a DIY may well result in it never going back togethyer again properly.

HVX200 shot footage - viewing footage on consumer grade camera


You can only view hd footage on hd devices. so if you recorded hd footage onto a tape, you will not be able to view it on a standard def camera, ie the dvx100b. The footage should not be harmed. Now if you are trying to view via p2 card over the firewire, whole new scenario.
