I know this is an old camera, but I need some help. I have a canon XL1S that has no sound, I have downloaded the manual, checked the settings, changed the microphone, tried using audio 1 with a wireless mic (that worked on my other XL1) but nothing. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Well Bob, I think I have some bad news, and some more bad news. My guess is that either the main circuit board (which had to be replaced on mine way back in 2002) or an audio circuit board is blown. Also, Canon no longer supports this model series so I don't know if you can even get this repaired. Sorry. Might be time for new hardware.
