REMOVE TAPE Error fixed with reboot

Why another thread on this subject? Because when I finally got the dreaded error after three years and thought of all the long threads I've read on this subject I was feeling a little sick. Then I went with my instinct to at least try removing both the Lithium Ion battery and the coin battery for a few minutes. The problem cleared.

I realize that there may be a number of different reasons for the Remove Tape message, and maybe most of them are going to lead to a $250 repair by Canon. But chances are that some people have gone that route unnecessarily.

When any microprocessor controlled piece of equipment behaves weirdly, the first thing to try is a cold reboot. And the GL2 is no exception.
