Question about Canon Cameras

4 Answers

I have an Elura 90 that has suddenly started to show horizontal lines of different video images at the same time; one will show as a still picture and the other will be the video which I'm trying to show. It only does it on parts of different tapes, not all. I have cleaned the heads several times to no avail.

    I'm not sure what was meant by the ok button; I took it to mean the record button. Using the record button I tried this several times with no change. Was this correct or did I mis-understand?

Hello,

There is a line sometimes in the lcd of the camera that can be capture when taking picture. this could be not visible but the camera itself can detect it. try to fix some connection of the lcd to the designate circuit of the camera. or may contact the service center of your camera or maybe the vendor can fix it for you for free.

Here is a copy of the manual if you don't have one

Pages 120 and 132 tell you what the ok button is all about.

Has this tape been used more than once?

If so try a different tape that hasn't been previously recorded over. If you reuse a DV tape without erasing it first, that condition can happen.

Hello sir

If it happens more in bright light than in low light it is caused by the shutter inside the lens not opening & closing properly. If the shutter gets stuck open it will allow too much light to reach the ccd causing the electronics to overload and cause the stripes. Since the video function doesn't use the shutter in the lens it isn't affected.

There is a slight chance the problem could be in the electronic circuit but that isn't as likely as the shutter being the problem.

It would need to be disassembled and the shutter repaired.

thank u

I have an Elura 90. The cassette door opens but


When ejecting the tape you must hold the eject switch down for a full second. There are two stages to the eject process just as there are with the insertion of a videocassette. Hold the button in position long enough to hear the motor mechanism start.

Distorted picture when looking through view finder or lcd screen


the video playback is sampled off the video out and independently processed sorta like a TV signal to project on the lcd screen.
horizontal lines means you lost sync circuit and needs troubleshooting. Hopefully maybe a bad connection with a ribbon cable for the ICs and components are hard to change and jammed tight. I would order a video board.

Horizontal lines on display but firewire and SD card work fine


Hello people who face similar problems...

First confirm whether it is a problem with the head assembly/ dirty heads.

Do the symptoms appear only on the camcorder's internal TFT side display or is it visible on an external monitor (connect using the AV cable supplied) and the EVF(electronic view finder) also.

If it is visible on the EVF, TFT Side display and the external monitor then it is definately a case of Bad video heads or the tape guide requires to be aligned or calibrated

There are no adjustments for this problem,if the unit has been working good for 3 years and suddenly gives you this pix is time to call a qualified technician,among many reasons you might have loose solder conections in the horizontal drive circuit or poor regulation problem in the power supply,if you dont know how and where be safe and call a Technician.
