Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
There is a simple solution to that... You see under the 'card-tape' switch? There's the red button for recording... attached to that button the is a switch that says 'tandby or lock'.... if you have it in 'lock' it will not let you go to record mode, you have to change it back to 'standby' and that should solve your problem.... Anymore question just e-mail me at Jacob.Bahling@Live.com and I was wondering if you had a copy of the installation CD I can buy or have.... or maybe you could tell me where to get it? Thanks.

You've probably got your camera in Lock mode. Make sure the switch by the record button on the side is pointing to Standby and not Lock.

I loaned my camera to someone. Now the viewfinder is black, however it is recording. I just can't see what I am recording.
It is set to read a tape, It is set to standby.

This is usually caused by a severely oxidized video drum. If you 've tried running a cleaning tape through the camera with no results the camera will need to be serviced by a qualified technician.
