Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Follow up to question regarding XH-A1 power problem (earlier today). It appears to be heat related. I was setting it in an unventilated area after it was already warm from shooting. Letting it cool down seems to solve the problem -Marcus

Xh 1s capturing video


Jack you posted in the wrong category. If you post in Canon video you'll have better luck or try the DVX User forums for that model:

Lcd screen is not showing an image on my Canon XH A1, and there is no image when I look through the eye hole either.


The unit is powering up, Is it still recording video? Most likely you will need to send it in for service.
Keep me updated,

Would you please tell me what settings my camera would have had at the time of purchase ..I'm looking to set everything back to the original settings as I am not pleased with the picture results now.I hope...


To put the camera back into normal/initial mode AND reset all user settings to default (time included) , follow this sequence.
From FZ4/FZ5 Usage.pdf, page 4, Step 7:

  • How to release service mode and return to initial settings
    1. Turn the [Power SW] on.
    2. Set the mode dial into [P] mode.
    3. Turn the [Power SW] off pressing and holding [OIS] and [RIGHT] simultaneously.
      After that, the 2-page menu below appears on LCD.
      fz5_reset_area.jpg
    4. You can [Select] with the [UP] and [DOWN] arrows, [Set] with the [RIGHT] arrow, or [Exit] with no changes by pressing the [MENU] key.
      After selecting the area name using [UP/DOWN] , press [RIGHT]. Beware! You must choose your correct area code or you will kill your camera! Known area codes are listed below.
    5. The final confirmation screen appears with "Initial settings", your chosen area code, "OK, Cancel [LEFT], End [RIGHT]". Press press [RIGHT] and initial setting will be completed and power will go off.
The area codes (probably for language and regional settings) appear after the camera model name on the manuals so googling for FZ5xx, my guess is: PP = North America (English & French), EG=Eu English/French/German/Italian/Dutch, EGM=Eu Scand, EB=Eu UK, GN=Aus/NZ, PL=Mex/Phillipines, GD=Korean, GC=Russian/Cyrillic, SG=??, GT=??, GK=??

Light displays on screen but no image


Can you see images taken earlier from memory in view mode ?
Can you access the menu and see it displayed on the screen ?
If yes to both, then your CCD sensor most likely is defekt.

No DIY recommended.

I have a canon xh a1 video camera and when I turn it on to record all I get on the lcd is color test pattern


On left hand side of unit there is an Output control pin/switch it is probably set on BARS - switch it to CAM and that will solve your challenge. Unbelievabel but Canon tech support didn't know that..at least the lame rep I got on the phone.

Message in viewer......' dew detect ' there all the time,i have left for hours but no result.tried earlier today and now 6hrs later still there......?


There is humidity in the camera, most likely on the circuit board, and the internal humidity detector is sensing it.

It is possible but rare, the humidity sensor and or its related circuitry is defective.

I got the same problem back in December of 2006 (9 months ago). Since then, the camara has been on the shelf inside its case. Of course, I've been thinking about when to send it for repair or just buy a new camera. Just today, I got in the mail a letter from Monolta informing me of a class action lawsuit involving the DiMage A1 cameras. The problem is related to faulty CCD sensor creating the problem of a distorted image on the LCD and viewfinder. They will repair it or reimburse any repairs you may have already done or a reimbursement if you bought a new camara as a replacement. Replacements have a limit of up to $206. Go to http://ca.konicaminolta.com/ccdsettlemen... for more info on the lawsuit. There is also a link to a site to start the repair part. There is a deadline to apply for the repair which is three years from the time of purchase or March 31, 2008. RicoE

When a CompactFlash is loaded, a message of "Card Error. OK" appears and remains on the LCD monitor.


Please follow the procedure below: 1. While the message is displayed, press the center of the controller. 2. The LCD monitor and data panel will turn off . 3. Turn the Main Switch to OFF and remove the CompactFlash card from the camera. 4. If "No Card " message appears at next time the camera is activated in the recording mode, the camera and CompactFlash card are OK. 5. In case that "Card Error. OK" appears again, the CompactFlash card may be faulty. Use other card.

Is the focus area switchable?


The focus area can be set for Wide Focus Area or Spot Focus Point. When selecting the Spot Focus Point, the DiMAGE A1 can be set "Flex Focus Point (FFP) ".
