Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When turning on my Canon GL2 in camera mode, the picture does not appear in either the view finder or LCD panel. The icons (battery life, time code, etc.) appear fine, but the screen in just black.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

I saw a solution to this problem posted in another thread, as I was having the same problem with JVC GZ-MG40. Try tapping the top of the camcorder, about 1 inch back from the lens with the tip of a screwdriver or something else hard (key, coin, etc). It worked for me. Now I just have to wait and see how long the solution holds for.

Sounds like you have a bad CCD. You can try contacting Canon to check out your options on how to get this repaired. Unfortunately the S2IS is not on their CCD recall list of cameras.

There is usually a button for turning the screen on and off, or only on for previewing (browsing images). (and sometimes there is an option for having the screen on without the On-Screen Display)
I don't know exactly which one on your camera... sometimes the up button, sometimes there is a little symbol.
Play with it, and eventually you'll find the right button. =-]
