Canon XH-A1 Menu Button...

In any operation setting, playback or recording, the buttons aren't working. When in VCR mode, the controls don't work. When in recording mode, I can't open the menu and the custom keys or presets do not work. However I CAN record. I don't understand if my camera is defective or if I am not operating the camera correctly.

When I capture HDV footage from my XH A1 to Final Cut Pro 5, the footage is out of sync. The video is playing like in 110%, or something like that. The original footage is in 24f mode. It doesnt happen in...

Make sure the properties for the project you start after the ingest match the frame rate you used to record. Reads like 29.97 speed setting looking at images recorded at 24f.

Check your little lock and standby lever at the back of your hand strap, its likely positioned between standby and lock.

Playback STD Locked Playback is Restricted message

the tape most likely has the lock switched on, it's secured so no one can even view it, why it happend, beats me, look at the bottom of the tape, if it has the lock switch, and is pushed up to "lock" push it back down, if  that doesn't work than I'm not sure, sorry.
hope this helped- snowsurfer58
