Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

3 Answers

Camcorder won't start

I was using the camera when for some unknown reason it shut down. Now, it won't startup or even eject a tape. I have taken the battery out and tried plugging it in. Nothing has changed. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks

On that model theres a ferrite core on the bottom that if it comes loose from dropping or over time it will hit the main pcb and break it theres six small screws holding the bottom cover on and towards the front there is what looks like two magnets with a flex goin through them that is the ferrite core there should be two pieces of white tape that looks like a plus sign over the ferrite core if its moving freely then it more then likely hit the main pcb and caused it to break and cause the camera to have no power

There is a standby lock switch that is easily filpped by mistake. This will shut your cam down quick, just flip it back to standby. Denis @ ByrdsEye Video www.byrdsvideo.com

Unit will not stay on. Turn power on unit with no tape. After several seconds cycles off. I am using the aux. to monitor a cctv camera.


VCR's with faulty mechanisms will power down to prevent tape damage. Checking inside might reveal damage to the tape mechanism. Even if the mechanism isn't damaged the VCR has a device called the mode switch. These tell the electronics what position the mechanism is in. If that goes faulty the electronics can think that mechanism is in say playback mode, even when it's in eject mode. So when it detects no tape tries to stop and eject the tape. Since it can't carry out this it shuts the entire video down to be on the safe side and prevent further damage.

My VHS tape is stuck and won't eject or plsy


The transport mechanism ff/rewinds and drives the tape back into the cassette when eject is used.

Most likely a bad belt or the drive idler wheel (rubber or geared). Unit would have to be taken apart to "see" what is not happening.

Jammed by putting tape in upside down


Take off the battery on the camcorder. Insert the battery and at the SAME time, push the power and the eject to see if this resets the camcorder so it will eject. If this does not work, I'm afraid the unit will need to be taken apart and removed manual. Good Luck

Most likely the lithium Ion battery has been discharged. Leave it plugged in for 24 hours without turning it on and it should charge the battery.

C:32:11 message flashes, cassette eject won't work, camera doesn't work


Just had this problem myself... called Sony. Here is what I did to fix this:

1. Turn off power
2. Open the LCD Display
3. Press "Reset" with paperclip/pen
4. Unplug ANY wires connected to the camcorder
5. Eject battery
6. Plug in DC charger
7. Power on
8. Attempt to eject tape
9. At this point, the metal tape holder comes out but refuses to open... slightly "close" the portion of the camcorder that has the button to eject the tape, and then open it fully again (you'll hear a click, this signals the device that the 'hatch' is open and to eject).
10. The metal door *should* pop out and allow you to withdraw the tape.

I've tried 4 different cassettes and about 2 seconds after hitting play, I get the error every time... my solution: Not going to try to play my tapes on the camcorder anymore... will find another player to play Hi8 MP cassettes. Unknown if able to record to tape as of yet.
