Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

BLACK SPOTS CANON GL2

Noticing a few very tiny black spots on video playback. Am assuming this is dust. Problem seems to be internal, as they won't go away after a good cloth wiping. Is it possible to clean this myself, or will it be necessary to send it in. Canon Gl2.

LCD not working


my samsung mini dvd had problem with recording, the screen would go black (though menu displays come up fine).
could do play back but not record.
i put it in the sun for awhile or in a warm spot and it will record and show display. 
it is not a complete fix but worth trying (on top of the heater works good too). of course the fix doesn't seem to work when i REALLY need to record something.
also had stripes coming across screen recently on playback, gave it a good tap and the stripes went.

Put an used casette inside; hit PLAY and then FFWD until you start seeing images. Eventually you will start seeing some with lines and then the black lines will get smaller and smaller until they turn into grainy lines. Stop and PLAY again and they will faint. RWD and PLAY back as you wish and it should be find. I think this is because of tiny dirt particles that your cassette will dust off for you.

Black lines on playback no playback


hi, if you have stuck the head cleaner in and this has not removed the black lines then the head might either need a thorough clean or may be damaged.

Playback problem


I've encountered this exact problem a month ago, except cleaning the heads did not fix it. However, I was able to find an alternative solution...

After leaving my camera closed up in a drawer for a few weeks, I decided to take it out and leave it in the sun for 15 minutes, assuming that perhaps the gray bars were a result of moisture damage. The next day (Today, to be exact) I turned my camcorder on, and the gray bars have gone away from playback, as well as the reduced sound quallity it caused.

Sony Camcorder playback problem


mechanical alignment! try to record for a minute and playback the result on another player/recorder, not on your camera, if the playback is not okay then your camera needs alignment, you need pro fix. You said that you've done manual cleaning already, maybe you dis aligned the mechanical parts accidentally, applying too much force on the mechanical parts of your small unit tends to bend, dislocate or move these parts out of alignment. defective videohead will never playback good video, and you said that it seems to correct only a few minutes of playback.

BLACK Lines and having to reset.


i assume that the 'black lines' are 5 bars of dark video spaced equally across the screen. this is a symptom of dirty heads. use a mini DV cleaning tape, and the problem should go away.

Cant record but can playback!!!


yeppers sorry to tell ya clare321 but the small capacitors inside the camera portion of the camera sounds like they are starting to leak and break down. This is a very common problem with most camcorders and they still use those pesky pana caps. If your lucky maybe they(the Caps) didnt eat away and distroy the Printed circuit board yet but it will in a matter of time. you should get this into a repair shop asap as this is not a repar for a handyperson. Good luck
