Hi

Here again with this old Canon Topic.
Regarding my case, it has comeback from Canon technical service and after making two complete empty cycles, the only flashing message is the red empty icon on the screen.

I hope will continue for a long time in such manner.

Happy filming
Ignacio

My GL2 is starting to have the same problem of not RR or FF. But I found out if I use the photo search button l<< on the remote, I could at least get to the beginning of the tape to watch it.

Time to send it in.

Would Canon overhaul the whole camera when they fix this problem??

Thanks

Richard

I now have a Panasonic VCR/VTR Deck. Hope to keep such FF and RR in cammie to absolute minimum OR nothing . . . . so far it is a brilliant pice of kit, don't know why I took so long in getting a Deck? Oh yes . .I know, money . . hah ;-)

Grazie

Richard,
Canon does a full check out and cleaning (I think) when you send it in for service. If they find other problems other than the one you tell them about, I'd expect they would contact you about it.

Good luck.

Just got my camcorder back from the service center after getting having the not rewinding issue. The service details says:

Replaced drive gear and idler gear. Cleaned and adjusted tapepath. Checked REW/FF and normal now. Cleaned and checked all functions to factory specs.

It was under warranty (postmarked two days before it ran out!) and no charges. Not sure what the case would have been if they found something else wrong with it but I'm assuming they would have fixed everything under warranty and if it wasn't they would have contacted me.

Total time from the time I sent it out (USPS insured priority) to return was 12days, I'm very pleased, as long as it keeps working...

Cheers,
Brian

That's great to hear! 12 day's? I was expecting a month or so.

Does anybody know if this problem only shows up in a certain batch of GL2's that were made between a certain time period?
