Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
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
