Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The unit will not power up at all. The lock switch is not in locked position. The battery has 8.2 volts The power pack supplies 7.5 volts. Unit has no sign of life. The path guides on the tape cartridge are in the fully loaded position, as if there is a tape inside. However there is no tape inside.
I used a small battery to run the loading motor to return the path guides to start position, in hope the unit was out of time, and needed to be reset. Still no power. Do these have mode switches that go bad like on vcr's?
Anyone have a service manual they could email me, [email protected] Anyone have any tips,or fixes on this model
There are a few floating around some of the forums but getting one is not going to be easy. I can see if I can find you one. Ill post here if I do.

The DR LCK fuse supplies battery voltage to the body control module (BCM) for the power door lock system. The BCM supplies and monitors a reference voltage to the driver and passenger door lock switches through the door lock switch lock/unlock signal circuit. Each door lock switch receives ground at G300 which is also the ground for the door lock and unlock relays located in the BCM. When a door lock switch is placed in the lock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground and the BCM senses 0.0 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. When a door lock switch is placed in the unlock position, the reference voltage is switched to ground through a 1.5k ohm resistor that is internal to each of the door lock switches and the BCM senses approximately 2.9 volts on the door lock/unlock signal circuit. The BCM interprets what position the activated door lock switch was placed in based on the voltage drop.
The BCM, upon receipt of a lock or unlock switch signal, will switch the appropriate door lock/unlock relay coil control circuit to ground causing the appropriate door lock/unlock relay to energize. With the relay energized, voltage is applied to the door lock actuator control circuit causing the door to either lock, or unlock depending on what command was received from the power door lock switch or remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). When a power door lock/unlock relay is not energized, the switch contacts are normally grounded through the BCM which provides ground to the appropriate door lock actuator for the lock/unlock function being performed. The power door lock/unlock functions are performed by reversing the flow of voltage through the door lock actuator control circuits. The BCM has three internal drivers for the power door lock system. Driver door unlock, passenger door unlock and all door lock. This is done to isolate the driver door lock actuator so it can be unlocked separately from the passenger door. For additional information concerning keyless entry, refer to Keyless Entry System Description and Operation.
This is one you may want to take to dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop ! To do this right you need a Tech 2 scan tool !
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Door Lock Switch parameter while using the driver and passenger door lock switches. The parameter should change from Idle to Lock and Unlock.
If the value does not change, refer to Door Lock Switch Malfunction.
Command the doors to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the door lock actuators should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between the commanded states.
If one or more doors do not LOCK or UNLOCK, refer to Door Lock Malfunction.

Command the driver door and passenger door lock actuators to LOCK and UNLOCK with the scan tool, the doors should LOCK and UNLOCK when changing between commanded states.
If a door lock actuator does not perform the LOCK and UNLOCK functions, refer to Door Lock Malfunction

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and will require disassembly and trouble shooting to narrow down the cause. This can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.
