SOURCE: ZR50 Rec/Pause button not working

you are right.. if you know that you can fix the carbon button..replace it with the metal contact of the tac switch or micro switch...the diameter of the contact must be bigger to the contact area to prevent shorted connection

Remove the battery.   Wait 10 seconds.  Put it back in and see if that resets it.

SOURCE: Canon ZR 50 - pause / record button does not work

DId you check the second Battery. The small circle one under the main battery? That was the case with mine. The pause, rec button wouldnt work until i replaced the small circle battery.

SOURCE: my canon gl2 is showing a black screen but it will

I think I had that same problem. I had to send it in to have the ribbon cable replaced to the flip out screen. I am trying to find the company I sent it to. Mine needs a tune up again.
I don't think it was cheap but it was cheaper than replacing the camera.

My canon gl2 lcd screen and viewfinder black


Same thing happened to me. No display, no menu, no S-video output while in camera mode, but in VCR mode all was OK. Turning power off and on did not help until I also disconnected the AC power adapter. BTW, Mr. Riggins did not read the question before he answered.

I am trying to put my GL2 in 16:9 mode but the menu item is in pink and won't let me select it...what do I do?


Make sure you have the camcorder set to record on the dvd, since you can't go into the 16:9 mode when recording to the memory card- at least that's the way it was on one of my camcorders.
If you already have the dvd selected, you might be experiencing a faulty switch pad or similar problem, in which case the unit will have to be serviced. You can take it into a local camera repair shop, or contact Canon. Here's their support site:
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support
If you're not sure of the menu settings that will allow 16:9 mode, refer to your manual. If you take it into a camera shop, they should be able to assist you if it's just a setting, or verify if there's a different problem.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

No DV output from Canon GL2. Using a firewire cable from DV port on camera to firewire port on Mac Pro tower. Attempting to import the camera live to Final Cut Pro. Previously worked just fine.


Was the tape your trying to import recorded on the camera you are trying to import from? I've noticed that sometimes the tape I recorded on my old Panasonic won't show up on my GL2. It's like it's a blank tape, but I know it's not, as I have it labeled. Stick it back into the panasonic and it plays fine.

My GL2 only works when I turn it on to playback mode. When I try to turn the camera on in camera mode, it doesn't work. What could the problem be?


There is a simple solution to that... You see under the 'card-tape' switch? There's the red button for recording... attached to that button the is a switch that says 'tandby or lock'.... if you have it in 'lock' it will not let you go to record mode, you have to change it back to 'standby' and that should solve your problem.... Anymore question just e-mail me at Jacob.Bahling@Live.com and I was wondering if you had a copy of the installation CD I can buy or have.... or maybe you could tell me where to get it? Thanks.
