Question about Canon XL1S Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Earlier tonight I was filming a function with my canon xl1s and before filming began, it prompted me to check the lens and faded to black. I turned the camera off then back on a few times; same result. I removed the lens and reattached it probably six times, giving me about three diffent results upon reapplication. 1. blurry 2. no zoom 3. both. I am still unable to zoom or focus using both the camera and the lens. I was able to use that camera, but only stationary and no zoom or additional focus. I have since tried it at home and the problem persists!!
Possibility is two. 1. If the lens contact to the body is not good so make sure the contacts are clean and position is locked completely. 2. 90% of the solution comes from repair on Main circuit in the lens. Good Luck. For further assistance go to www.camerarepairjapan.com James.

I've been having the same issue... i just now... 30 sec ago, switched the batteries out and it powered up perfectly... the other battery was dead... so is it when the battery drops below a cretin voltage it cant power the lens? Please try this and letme know if it works for you too!
