Terrible dropouts in XL1 video. Help!!
on Sep 8, 2008 at 7:59:10 pm

Hey, I had a XL1 for several years and now, during recording and playback the video has a lot of dropouts and some litle squares like noise in the image. I sent the camara to repair but the problem is still there. I use Panasonic tapes always. What could be the cause? In the worse moment, the video looks like this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/30312544@N03/2840078057/

I apreciatte if somebody can help me.

Thanks a lot

I had a look at your frame grabs and the tape transport mechanism of your XL1 needs to be cleaned and serviced by an authorized Canon repair facility. Whoever did your recent service didn't do a very good job. Last year I took a Sony camera in to a repair place to get the heads cleaned and it came back in worse shape (recording-wise) than when I gave it to them. Then I took it in to Sony Repair and all was well.

People who work in these cameras have to know what they're doing.
