Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
You will need to have your camcorder repaired by an experienced technician. There are a two possibilities for why you are having this problem. There is a zoom flex cable assy that breaks over time (quite common) and also the zoom key assy can go bad. Most likely, it is the flex cable assy though. If you take your camcorder in for repair, you might also have them go ahead and replace your idler and drive gear inside your mechanism as preventative maintenance (while they are in there to keep the cost of labor down). These components will wear out and cause a "REMOVE THE CASSETTE" error....mainly when you are FF or REW. We usually recommend replacing those gears because it is a common problem that we see.
Hope this information has helped you.
