That symbol means that the backup (date) battery needs to be replaced. This is a button style battery and the replacement number is CR2025. It is located in a holder that slides out of its slot on the bottom of the camera. To keep your current settings, make sure you have the normal battery installed and put the unit in STANDBY mode when changing the backup battery.

My xl1 video camera will turn on but i can't see anything through the lens it's just blank what do i do


This sounds like either a Viewfinder ieeue or a CCD issue. Let's hope it's a viewfinder issue. Do any of the Icons show up? In either case, I can help you. Neither of these are really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

My AF point aperture (the red dot one) looks like a little bit blurry after i try to clean the lens in the camera body. how can this happen?


This might be because you accidentally moved the little wheel to the right of the viewfinder. You can simply look in to the viewfinder and move the wheel until it all seems to be in focus again.

Canon XL1 recordings are dark--the room is dark, but there are stage lights..Yet the recording came out extremely dark--what are we rookies missing?


"stage lights" may still not be enough- there should be alow light indicator in the viewfinder (amoung the many things being displayed)- Also, the camera manual should tell you the minimum illumination that the camera will record in (usually listed as LUX or Footcandles, or sometimes in EV), but unfortunately you would want an old fashion light meter to check the light level of the stage ahead of time

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.

Flashing Red Light....


The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.
