Hello there

The phanthom power up problem with XL1S is well know, however it could be any number of things. It simply goes through a quick self test before powering up, if it finds anything it doesn't like it will do what you are experiancing. Now this may not be what you wanted to hear but I would suggest giving these people a call and having a conversation with them. http://canonxl1scamcorderrepair.com/.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

Camera no power


You are right. It is not the battery. XL1s may have a blown transistors in the power PCB. It probably would not damaged any other are but power. This symptom requires a disassembly and removal of power PCB and repair. Sorry, I could not give any quick resolution for this. James. For further assistance, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

We are in the middle of a production (Live, right now) and one of our XL1's is shutting down whenever we hit the record button.


It may be timing out. Is the camera in standby mode? If yes, put it in record and lock.
I have an XL1 and a GL1 that sometimes shuts down. Is there a tape in the camera? It will time out sometimes if there is no tape rolling. Even if I am capturing directly to a computer, I always roll a tape, just to keep the camera from timing out.
What does your battery guage read in the viewfinder? A low battery will shut you down without warning. Try running from the power adapter if you have one.

Tape will not eject servo reaches halfway but sticks XL1s


Try this...

Hit the eject button. As soon as it makes it half way, take the battery out.
Leave the white cover open, put the battery back in.

This should take the tape cartridge up all the way and eject the tape.

I had the same problem and it ejected the defective tape

Tape ejection


The cassette tray motor might is more than likely damaged, and will need to be replaced. Before you go this route, make sure there is no debris inside the unit, causing it not to eject all the way. Unfortunately, this is not a cheap fix. The XL1S parts are not cheap, and they are labor intensive. So be prepared to shop around to get the best price.

Hope this helps some.

Eating Tape when rewinding in vcr mode


look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device. if no-go, then the take-up reel needs attention...needs possibly a new or well-cleaned-with-alcohol-swab rubber belt
