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!! i have XL1's .when zoon in to the subject it does not make any problem.but when i try to zoom out it does not focus the subject.steplizer spins without pressing any button.
Yes, this is a strange issue. Have you dropped the unit, or maybe 'bumped' it or anything similar. I know alot of times, people like to 'hit' their unit, to get it to do things (like eject tape). What people don't realize, is that these machines are prone to damage when hit hard enough (just like anything else).
In any event, this is not an misconfiguration issue, and you won't be able to fix it. You would need to bring it in to a qualified service center for an estimate. Be sure to shop around to find the best price and service. Since parts for these are not cheap, and they are labor intensive.
Hope this helps some.
