    From Kofi Ayisa

    Dear all,

    About two month now, whenever I try to record or play a cassette from my video Camcorder Canon MX2, it displays the following: "remove the cassette" or eject. I thought it was a condensation problem but all attempts failed, please help me. This camera is the most expensive thing I ever bought in my life to make simple documentaries so my heart is bleeding. Thank you

In programme mode you use the “Exp” button on the front of the camera to adjust the shutter speed and aperture, however when moving the switch up or down it has no effect on either shutter speed and aperture I have tried it in Ap, Tv and full Manuel mode and no effect It would appear that I now have a very expensive point and shoot camera as it only appears to work in the auto setting.

Good luck in your quest, Canon treats their service manuals like they are the holy grail, you have to be a official repair site to buy one, (altho they will sell you the parts), I have tried to find one on the net both legal and illegal for a year now, and they are just not to be had. Just a little after thought, I have a JVC GY-300, pro camera, JVC America gladly sold me a cd for about 15 dollars with service manuals for every camcorder they made that year both pro and amature, so maybe your next pro camcorder should be a JVC,if something goes boing, at least you can get a repair manual.

SOURCE: i have lost my digital video solution disc for my canon xm2

canon only provide updates for the software - also looking on the support site http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010193.asp - there are also no drivers for windows 7. I would recommend contacting canon in your country and see if you can get an update and what Operating system is supported - its possible that windows7 already has the drivers included ..... Choose country from this link http://www.canon.co.uk/Support/Consumer_Products/services_locator/index.aspx Note there is an email and telephone tab for details

I have connected my canon xm2 to the computer via the usb cable but nothing is happening? how do i get my videos on the computer?


It looks like the USB port on this camera is used to transfer stills only. The camera has a DV port for a "Firewire" connection to stream video to a computer, but most PCs don't have such a port (Macs do). You can add Firewire ports to a PC using an add-on card. You will need a cable too. These things are available cheaply on eBay or Amazon.

The software needed and manuals for this camera are available for download from

Where can I find a replacement mains and charge lead for a canon DM-XM2


XM2 is the PAL version of the GL1 and 2, should be able to get it from any Canon parts provider (maybe even e-Bay/craigslist)... by mains do you mean battery? it is the same for the GL1/2 XL1/2 XM1/2 (Canon Part # BP-945)

I have xm2 canon, and I can't find the night vision mode on it.


I do not believe XM2 or GL2 does not have night vision mode. You may achieve little using video gain control. We all know Sony has the night vision modes which have been popular feature. James
