My canon gl2 lcd screen and viewfinder black

Same thing happened to me. No display, no menu, no S-video output while in camera mode, but in VCR mode all was OK. Turning power off and on did not help until I also disconnected the AC power adapter. BTW, Mr. Riggins did not read the question before he answered.

I just had My GL2 serviced the only problem

The selector switch may be out of time. A plastic gear may have come loose from the shaft it's mounted to. A thorough inspection is necessary to find the failed part.

Video from Canon GL2 to my sony vaio windows vista and I already updated to zoombrowser EX 6.1

Suggestion: Remove the memory chip from the Canon and get a reader that plugs directly into your USB port on the vaio. Available online or at any computer shop or big box store. You should be able to open the photos directly from the chip. They'll be in a DCIM folder - you may have to easter-egg around a bit, or search for *.jpg Lots faster and less frustrating than the camera's software interface.

How do i get distortion lines out of the camera?

Do you mean distortion from shooting at wider angles? If you, you'll either need to do it when you import the video into your editing program or not use such a wide angle in your shots.

How to connect canon gl-2 camcorder to computer

Are you using the proper Firewire cable to connect? Also, the GL2 has had issue with the Firewire port going bad. Try a different cable and see if that helps. It can't be a USB-Firewire cable either.

How do I fix the tracking on a video already shot

You cannot do any corrections. The video tracking signal is set. The best that you could do is use editing software to try and crop it.

GL2 does ne rewind

I doubt it is something in the settings. Step 1: The tape may be causing the camera to "reject" it. In other words, it thinks there is something wrong with the tape so it is warning you with the error message. Perhaps the cassette has been damaged slightly. This error can also happen when the tape has been used often or taped over a few times. MiniDV tapes are not media that can be recorded over and over again. Solution: Try using a new tape. 2. The camera may need to be cleaned. The recording heads may be dirty and it doesn't matter what tape is placed in there. Solution: Purchase a cleaning tape from a consumer electronics store. Make sure you read the directions very carefully. These are cheap fixes. If it works, great. It would also be good to know what it CAN do. Does it play in the VCR mode? Does it record? And can you view it in the VCR mode? Has it changed in any other way, i.e. is it making a strange noise when it starts to rewind, when before it didn't? Let me know how it goes.
