Generally it is cost effective if you repair the board,
if the cost of repair is almost same as the new board then you should go for new board

    better you try repair the same audio board itself.........if it is new one then you can apply for warranty

  • balachander megavarnam
    balachander megavarnam May 14, 2008

    because if you repair the board ........it may void the warranty

    for Sony, Panasonic and Canon the audio board is usually costs around
    $195..........so it is better to repair the old board itself

    if you have $195 you can go with the new board itself..........if you have then you can go with repairing the old one

No sound is being recordeed when recording


You will need to clean the tape carriage and tape heads. Buy a small can of compressed air and a good quality tape head cleaning tape. Use the compressed air to clean out the tape carriage and the run the head cleaning tape. Use the compressed air again to clear out any dust and dirt form the head cleaning This should bring back the sound to your playback of the tapes. If not you may have other problems with the sound pick-up circuits. Check your settings and the microphone for some problem. You may have to have a service person check out the problem for you. Have them test it and give you a estimate of the cost of the repair. That way you can judge whether or not it will be worth repairing.I hope this information help you with your problem

GL2 Tape comes out pixalized


You may have a heavy clogging of the heads. The head cleaning tape will not serve in this situation but manual head cleaing from trained technician. Head cleaning service shoud go around $100. Same symptom would happen when the tracking goes off on GL2 and this may cost more to adjust. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Audio is cutting out on playback


You did every thing right. Audio is effected by clogged video heads and the audio circuit. At this time, you might look at the service by professionals. 50% chance the audio problem could be resolved by cleaning video heads and tape path without much adjustment, you cost would be around $100-150. If this does not resolve the issuie, Camcorder need repair and would run $250-400 for GL2 model. Good luck. -James. For further assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

My canon gl2 won't record because it keep telling me to eject the tape. I put in a new tape and the samething keeps on happening. What can I do about it?


You may be the victim of dirty clogged head. When the tape is incerted on GL2, it is searching for the data from the tape but if the heads are clogged it will not communicate so, the processing computer think the tape is damaged. Procedure to clean the head. This may not clean but let's try. Purchase a head cleaner tape and run it for about 10 seconds but not more. Try to insert regular clean tape and try it. If this does not resolve the problem, GL2 need cleaning and adjustment by technician. Good luck -James. For further assistance email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

My GL2 camera constantly wants me to eject tape!!  I am unable to use my camera because it forces me to eject  the tape. I've switch tapes and use new tapes and still the same  results. Only time it...


The immediate remedy may be cleaning the video heads. The head is not receiving the data from the inserted tape because it may be clogged. Use head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds but NO MORE. Try again, if not you may need to clean and adjust by trained technicians. Good luck -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.

Thats a possibility. I don't know why it costs so much since all you have to to is take a small screw driver and adjust the audio head. You might try cleaning it with a DV tape cleaner and see if that makes a difference. It's cheaper than the repair shop.

Switched back and forth between SP and LP in playback


The control track on the tape is not being sensed properly, or there may be a fault in the capston circuit, or capston drive.


There are a number of issues that can cause this:

This can be a dirt film on the control track head, or the main video drum heads, or warn head surfaces. It may also be an alignment problem due to warn parts. The electronics that read and process the control track, or video synchronization processing may have a fault.

The first thing you can do as a user is to clean the tape path. It is safest and usualy works well to use a cleaning tape for your camera type. Follow the instructions for the cleaning tape. The cleaning tape has a surface on it that is supposed to clean the head surfaces without causing a disturbance. Usualy the time required is about 5 to 10 seconds, depending on the model of the camera and the type of tape format.

Read the instructions that comes with the cleaning tape. It is not recomended to re-wind and re-use this tape.

Past this point, the camera will have to be serviced.
