Question about Canon Optura 600 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My WIFE DROPPED OUR CANON, TOOK IT IN TO BE FIXED BUT THEY COULD NOT RECIEVE A PARTS MANUEL , 3 MONTHS LATER I PICK IT UP VERY UNHAPPY NEEDS SLIDER CHASSIS & GUIDE RAILS REPLACED HOW MUCH WILL IT COST FIX & WERE CAN I SEND IT TO BRE REPAIRED. i LOVED MY CANON, ???IS IT WORTH TO FIX
iAM IN ALBUQUERQUE NM
SOURCE: Canon xl2 4 dead pixels
If its just an issue of one or 2 hot/dead pixels I'd just mask them and shift 1x1 pixels as long as they stay in one spot its not a serious issue. Or you may want to try to unfreeze it by using a color strobe directly into the lens but it may not work The other option is to replace the optical assembly and that can easily be a 1k+ repair so really not worth it IMO

Yes, these units in particular have a common problem with the CCD sensors. It is not exactly an inexpensive repair, and if you had to pay for it yourself, would probably exceed the value of the camera. Contact Canon support as they may replace the CCD for free or under a special warranty, since the problem was so pervasive. If Canon won't replace it for you, you probably need to look into a new camcorder.
