Question about Canon GL1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
This has happened to the last 3 tapes i've put into my GL1. I film fine with them and then i start to rewind and it rewinds for about 15 seconds and then says "REMOVE CASSETTE". I try putting it back in and the second it closes it starts beeping and telling me to remove it again. But then when i put a brand new tape in it is fine, until i rewind it and then it won't let me use it. I don't think it has anything to do with condensation because it only happens on rewind and new tapes work fine
I certainly don't intend to be rude or obnotious but your comments on this known prpblem are contraditory to say the least! :
"The problem that you are experiencing with your Canon GL1 camcorder is a common complaint on this model camcorder. The “eject the tape error” is the camcorders way of saying something is wrong and it needs to be sent in for repair. It is not a defect with the camcorder, it is simply the most common complaint when the mechanical assembly is not running smoothly and perfectly." If something is wrong and it's a common problem then it must be defect?!?! Also your pricing for this "repair" is pretty close half of what a used GL goes for over here in Europe. I would definatly be looking for another quote and repair service other than yours!
