Canon XL2 LCD Monitor

What setting do I use to connect an LCD field monitor to a Canon XL2? I recently purchased one, and I can't get the monitor to show the video. Everything is in working order. Is there a certain setting to use? The LCD monitor power turns on, but the screen remains blue. I greatly appreciate your help! I can't seem to find any answers.

You may be better off posting this on one of the DVinfo 'video' forums. This forum is audio specific.

Re: Canon XL2 LCD Monitor

Casey,

There is a tiny black switch that is easy to miss between the video outputs. It selects between RCA and BNC. You have it on the wrong one.

There is a section of this forum dedicated to your camera.
