SOURCE: my pc doesn't reckognize the canon xl2 when connected by firewire

Well, I hate that when it happens so we changed test-bed computer to Mac. The software runs as soon as two hardware, pc and XL2 is connected physically. I do not have knowledge on prem pro 1.5. but from technician's point of view, if both machines I/O hardwares are ok rest of the reponsibility depending on the program. This is how I would do it. 1. Restart the computer 2. open only the related program and have it ready for connect. 3. turn on XL2 on VCR mode, test make sure it plays few second. 4. connect the firewire. Hope this works otherwise, I will re-install the program and try. Beyond that point, it's good to consult with a local technician for diagnostic of your XL2 first. -James

Canon XL2 - eject button issue


Yes, it seems a loose contact on the button's circuitry. The only way to repair this is to take it in for servicing, unless you're willing to live with it :)

My canon mini dv camera model no> xl2 is in


If you can't find the manual on Canon's website it's probably not a good idea to go elsewhere. Your best bet is to send it in to Canon and have their techs repair it.

Viewfinder and lcd non functioning


I like the XL2. It's a great camera.

The first thing that comes to mind is the connections between the viewfinder and the camera. This is going to involve some electronic troubleshooting. If you're not comfortable with modern electronics then this can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively.

My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Canon xl2 will not take the tape it says remove tape in viewfinder.camera is dry whats going on here


Canon XL series will indicate "remove tape" sign when the head does not read the data when inserted. You probably have clogged head and probably needs cleaning. Depending on the condition of the clogged head, you can try by running head cleaning tape for about 10 sec. If that does not resolve, it shoud be cleaned and adjusted by trained technicians. Good Luck. If need a professional help, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Cassate tape will not eject from my Canon ZR85 Mini DV Digital Camcorder


I found a temporary solution for this problem. When the tray with the cassette tape comes out remove the battery so that the tray will not go inside again. Now on top of the tray it will be written as "PRESS" just adjucent to it you can see a spring connected to the tray just press the string down wards and the tray opens and you can replace the battery. Hope this can help.

Can't open the dv tape


Solutions * The most frequent cause of this type situation is not having a power source attached, or a depleted battery pack. * Once the power source is available, some models require manually unlatching and opening a cover. * When the cover is fully open, the cassette will eject automatically after a few seconds. * If the tape still will not eject, seek assistance from a Service Facility because you need a special tool to remove the tape without causing further damage.

VCR into camera


Since it is a Canon XL1S, I don't think that this feature is available (the recording tape to tape) until the XL2 Model. Just in case I am wrong, make sure that you are in VCR mode, and that in the menu options, somewhere there should be an option called Av to DV or something. As for the other part, you have to change what the display shows on the viewfinder. This is also in the menu under display settings, Timecode.
