Question about Canon XL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Posted by Anonymous on
When pouring a chilled beverage into a glass, water droplets may form on the surface of the glass. This happens because the air around the glass is rapidly cooled down, and moisture in the air adheres to the surface of the glass. This phenomenon is called condensation. This kind of condensation may also occur with camcorders. If you continue to use the camcorder with condensation on it, it could damage the camcorder. Condensation may form on the camcorder in the following cases: (1) When being moved from a cold place to a warm place (2) When being used in a rapidly-heated cold room (3) When being used in a humid room (4) When being moved from an air-conditioned room to a warm, humid place When condensation occurs: The camcorder stops operating automatically after its power lamp flashes. The warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" appears and the condensation-warning icon below starts flashing. Condensation-warning icon If a cassette is loaded, the warning message "CONDENSATION HAS BEEN DETECTED" and "REMOVE THE CASSETTE" appear and the cassette-warning icon starts flashing. Cassette-warning icon If a cassette is loaded in the camcorder, remove the cassette immediately and leave the cassette compartment open. If condensation is detected, the POWER switch and cassette-removing switch will be activated. Leaving the cassette in the camcorder may damage the tape. A cassette should not be loaded into the camcorder when condensation is detected. How to avoid condensation Unload the cassette and place the camcorder in an airtight plastic bag when moving to locations where temperatures vary. Allow time for the camcorder to adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag. Resuming use Allow at least one hour before resuming use; more time may be required for heavier condensation. When condensation has been eliminated, turn the camcorder on. After the condensation-warning icon stops flashing, wait one hour before resuming use.

The Control Center monitors refrigerator and
freezer temperatures as well as the ice maker
system. If there is a temperature or ice maker
problem, you'll be alerted by a flashing
SERVICE indicator light. This same SERVICE
light will also flash if the condenser needs
cleaning. Before calling for service, please
check and see if your condenser area needs
cleaning. Refer to Condenser Cleaning,
In all Built-In models, the condenser is located
behind the grille. First, remove the grille. Then
using a soft bristle brush, vacuum to remove
dust and lint from the condenser. NOTE: To
avoid bending the condenser fins, be sure to
vacuum in the direction of the fins (up and
down). Clean the condenser area every three
to six months.
Before cleaning the unit, shut the electricity
off at the control panel. When you
clean the condenser, wear gloves to avoid
injury from the sharp condenser fins.
Failure to clean the condenser could
result in temperature loss or mechanical
failure or damage.
