Question about Canon 16x Manual Servo for XL1S

1 Answer

Xl1s issue I have an xl1s, I don't know if this is normal or not, but it has a light line on the left side of the screen in the viewer and on recordings... the strange thing is that I see the same kind of fine light edge on the left side in the viewfinder on another xl1 that my school has ( I didn't test the recording part of this on the other xl1, just the viewer) it is weird because I can't find anyone online that has had the same issue. It is easily edited out but I was thinking about selling my xl1s and am not sure if this constitute a real issue or not.. thnxc Scott

You mentioned that you were editing it out which means that it is the video recording issue. When video recording has light or sligh pixilation on the side, the head may need cleaning or tracking system may need adjustment. Initially, try to clean the head with a tape head cleaner, run it for about 10 sec but not more. It this resolve, it was simple head clogging. Otherwise, camcorder needs adjustment by technician. Good luck, James. For further assistance, go to

I have a sony camcorder DCR-HC48. My viewfinder is not working and I would like to know if there is any way to fix it? The screen is just grey when the camera is on.

Does the viewer screen work when playing back a tape? If yes, then you have may have a sensor problem with the camera. If the playback tape does not appear on the viewer screen, then it sounds like a faulty connection between the camera and the viewer screen. In either case, you will probably need to discuss repairs with Sony Tech Support / Video Camera Repair. The number as listed on their website: Priority Service Line (for U.S. only): 239-768-7547

After you wade through the recorded-message-menu-maze and get to Camcorder Repair Department, you will receive quality assistance for the issue. (I recently had a similar problem with one of my Sony cameras and had to call them to schedule repairs.)

Have an IX1s Canon camcorder. Flashing red screen icon.

it means a particular battery is low or out of the camera, which hold the date and time memory of your videos. don't worry it doesn't affect your any recording or playback of videos. I have one and is blinking from past one month. no issues at all.

Flashing Red Light....

The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.

Unfortunately the 'green line' issue mentioned in the review appears to still be happening on screens that are shipping to end users. (It's been documented in detail on AVForums).

Hopefully this should be rectified by a firmware change (simply being able to adjust the picture vertically as well as horizontally would help).

VERY VERY COMMON IN PHILIPS!!! People all over the internet are noticing the same problem. Philips is still working on it. I will let you know as soon as they have a solution.
