I had this issue with a GL2 at work recently, neither the menu nor the manual / auto focus would activate after pushing their respective buttons.  No physical damage.
It could have been a coincidence but the problem fixed itself after removing and re-inserting the 3v watch battery on the side.  Very weird.  I had tried just about everything else first.
It was a brand new camera, had only seen minimal use up 'til that point.  It's been behaving since.

What do you mean you lost the menu? Can you not see it? Push the button that says EV display.

Just got this nice camera today from the pawn shop. Was wondering how to set time, date and things of that nature


I have attached a link to the user manual for this camcorder. The time and date settings are located in the menu options under "SYSTEM". Page 43 of the user manual will walk you through setting it up.

Need to get rid of date stamp on playback of videos...unfortunately videos have already been recorded...is there a way to turn it off on playback?


Well if you decided to date/time stamp on your films, then that is what it has done for you, just go into setting on menu and turn them off again, that is the default mode.

Hi,

Check if the setting is activated that puts the date stamp on (in the menu) and also check if your time is set.

Can't get rid of the screen images for video camera on playback


Hi
If it's like my Canon MVX25i date and time marking then go to the menu, select display setup (or whatever it's called on your camera) somewhere there should be a dialogue which allows you to switch the pesky thing off. I have never used date or time, a very amateurish concept in the first place.

Canon MV550i Mini DV Digital- red flashing symbol


from canon's support page:

This symbol indicates an empty or missing backup battery. The backup battery allows the camcorder to retain date, time and other settings when the main power source is removed.
The flashing symbol is not recorded by the camcorder so you can continue filming without problems.

To stop the flashing symbol remove the old backup battery and replace it with a new one, or recharge the built-in lithium battery if the camcorder has a built-in rechargeable battery.
Note: when the backup battery runs out during filming please do not remove the power supply (battery pack) before the camcorder is powered from a household power source and power adapter, or the user settings and date/time will be reset.

For more detailed information please consult the instruction manual.
