Try Cleaning the heads, with a "wet" cleaner if you use any other kind, it could also jam

My canon xl1s is crackling all the time even with the mic plugged out. What can I do to fix this.

Chances are there is a lose connection to the audio jack. Do it do this when the camera is on a tripod or flat, sturdy surface with no movement? If you are adventurous enough you could find a repair manual online and attempt to open the area where the audio/mic inputs are and check the connectons there. if that's not the issue then it could be in the audio circuts and require professional repair.

You also might try an audio input through the audio line in or aux audio input and see if that stops it.

Have an IX1s Canon camcorder. Flashing red screen icon.

it means a particular battery is low or out of the camera, which hold the date and time memory of your videos. don't worry it doesn't affect your any recording or playback of videos. I have one and is blinking from past one month. no issues at all.

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

Canon XL1s Viewfinder image gone

yeah, it sounds like the LCD has cracked at the bottom, or something. Since there is no pressure holding the liquid in the right place, it all settles at the bottom. (Hence the paint running down wall effect) soory to hear this dude :(

No picture in rec mode, cam switches off in 10sec

Try using the Dummie Battery and connect that end to charger.
This way you will know that you don't have battery problems.
