Try another cassette tape to start with. There may be a problem with the tape leader.

It is possible that there is some dirt in the tape path and the tape sensor is being obstructed.

It is also possible that the tape sensor itself or the electronincs that it works with has failed and needs service.

It seems your recording head is dirty, i would advise running a cleaning tape through it regularly or have the camera cleaned and checked at a Canon service.

Camera no power


You are right. It is not the battery. XL1s may have a blown transistors in the power PCB. It probably would not damaged any other are but power. This symptom requires a disassembly and removal of power PCB and repair. Sorry, I could not give any quick resolution for this. James. For further assistance, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Canon xl1 heads


Trained technician can clean the video heads individually and manually but I do not recomend it for general public. Best you can do is to purchase a good head cleaning tape. First, dust off the tape loading area with can air, then run the head cleaning tape for 10 seconds (our general recomendation is 5 seconds) but NO MORE. hope this works. -James.

Canon XL1. Unable to playback tape in camcorder


I have the solution that the canon expert forgot to mention. And this solved my exact problem too. I put in the tape and then shut the white door over top. This doesn't engage the tape. Problem solved. Human error, The fix cost nothing.

Canon xl 1s won't power up. Power light flashes, screen lights up then it turns it self off..will keep repeating like this every few seconds but won't stay on help


Just fixed this problem. It is one of the three main fuses that have blown out. This is not supposed to be consumer accessible or fixable, but I did it.
Open up the camera case using the 5 allen head screws disconnect the top ribbon cable going to the playback buttons on the handle. on the main board (behind the tape deck) are 3 tiny square black fuses The top fuse FU3201 is the VTR The middle fuse FU3200 is the Motor The bottom fuse FU3202 is the Camera/Lense
The bottom fuse was my culprit. I found a tiny piece of copper and bent it into a U shape and slipped it over the fuse so that it touched the metal terminals on both sides and bypassed the fuse. This fixed the problem.
Haven't used the camera extensively since, but shoot about 10 hrs a week with 2 xl1's and will post if anything happens.

We are in the middle of a production (Live, right now) and one of our XL1's is shutting down whenever we hit the record button.


It may be timing out. Is the camera in standby mode? If yes, put it in record and lock.
I have an XL1 and a GL1 that sometimes shuts down. Is there a tape in the camera? It will time out sometimes if there is no tape rolling. Even if I am capturing directly to a computer, I always roll a tape, just to keep the camera from timing out.
What does your battery guage read in the viewfinder? A low battery will shut you down without warning. Try running from the power adapter if you have one.

In my cannon xl1 s the tape recorded after 10 min befor 10 min ther is scrambel


You may have problem with transport system specially in the tension of tranport of the tape from one side to other. Immediate and simple solution if it works would be cleaning the pinch roller. It is the part with black robber roller when you open the tape compartment. Clean the roller using denatured alchohol with a Qtip. If this does not resolve, it need a diagnostic by a technician.

I paid the premium service but your tech knew less about the camera than I did. He didn't know the Canon XL1 at all. His directions indicated he had no idea how the camera worked.

Tape will not eject servo reaches halfway but sticks XL1s


Try this...

Hit the eject button. As soon as it makes it half way, take the battery out.
Leave the white cover open, put the battery back in.

This should take the tape cartridge up all the way and eject the tape.

I had the same problem and it ejected the defective tape
