I hope I can offer a simple solution. If it doesn't work, then I'll I have to ask a few more questions. I know the GL has many buttons and settings and it can be confusing to keep an eye on all of them. Perhaps the camera was changed accidentally to manual focus? Can you check to see it is set to auto focus. If that isn't the case. When you say you can't focus, do you mean when you try to manually focus it, nothing happens?

I just bought a canon Gl2 camera used on Ebay. I did the routine check, and everything seemed cool. I messed around with the zoom, and noticed that when I zoom in, at about 50 percent, it gets really...

This happens when the internal focus lens is off track, usually caused by impact and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

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.

My canon gl2 is showing a black screen but it will show menus and playback just nothing when i go to record

I think I had that same problem. I had to send it in to have the ribbon cable replaced to the flip out screen. I am trying to find the company I sent it to. Mine needs a tune up again.
I don't think it was cheap but it was cheaper than replacing the camera.
