XH-A1 Stuck in Lock Mode?

The camera goes into VCR mode, but will not record. We have a fresh battery. Seems like there's a lot of play in the standby/lock button. Doesn't seem to be firmly in the standby position. Help?

Take the camcorder apart then press the button inside it because it seems there is a plastic peice broken on the button.

How do I change the vcr to 'SLP' - it seems to be stuck on 'SP'. (There is no "speed" button on my remote.)


Use the remote to get into the setup menus. There may be an option to change tape speed when recording. Alternatively, when you press record on the remote (or deck), you may have option to change the tape speed there.

The VCR part of your deck may be able to playback, but not record in SLP mode.

Searched around for the manual for your machine, and though there are references to it, it appears that a manual / information page doesn't exist for the model # that you listed.

Goes from record mode to standby automatically


Wow my friend do you need Ghost Busters? er no this is mostly a case of the main switch being on lock, or the main IC going down on the panel in the cameras brain area, check the locks first, if it is the chip you will need to call your Sony repair man (He will love you) with summer coming he will be able to go on longer holiday, because that wont be a cheap mend sadly.
Number for help then is 01256 828828, now what you will do for cash for your holiday I simply do not know.
Take care, hope it gets sorted out okay?

TURN OFF LOCK. I AM IN MENU MODE, BUT WHERE IS THE ON/OFF BUTTON LOCATED?


Power on…Turn the POWER switch ON.
If the POWER switch on the backside of this recorder is
turned OFF, it is not possible to use any of the functions.
Turn the POWER switch ON before operation.
Power off…Turn the POWER switch OFF.
Standby Mode and Display Shut Off
If the recorder is stopped for 5 minutes or longer during recording or playing, it goes into
Standby (power-save) mode, and the display shuts off. To exit Standby mode and turn on
the display, press any button.
Locking a file keeps important data from being accidentally erased.
Locked files are not erased when you choose to erase all files from a folder.
In Menu mode selection... On, OFF
On: Locks the file and prevents it from being erased.
OFF: Unlocks the file and allows it to be erased.

XH-A1 Non Recogition


I occassionally have this issue, what you need to do is set the camera playing BEFORE you connect and load up the software. This should then show an image in the import settings in iMovie or whatever you are using. If you are using iMovie, do a manual import and rewind the tape on the camera manually with the import just running. When I do this it usually solves the problem for a while but every now and then it'll arise again, usually when switching between using HD MiniDV tapes and the standard ones and hence switching between SD and HD recording on the camera, seems to confuse it somewhat...

Please help me...When I connect my canon xh a1 to FCP 6.0 it says Unable to Initialize Capture Device Device is not connected or the capture preset is not setup correctly. You may still log offline...


Try playing the tape before connecting up to the mac with the firewire and before loading FCP up. Usually fixes it for me when using either iMovie to import or FCP

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.
