Anyone know how to get a maintenance and repair manual for the XL1(S)

Hey I'm just trying to find a manual, not like the one that came with the camera but a technical manual for an XL1(s) I suppose I would prefer a PAL XL1 but as it is I'm just wondering if anyone has access to one ot knows how to get one.

In the US service manuals can be ordered from Canon, cost is on the order of US$55. To get one you may have to pass a gatekeeper that may ask you to sign a warranty waiver for any damage or alignment problem caused by attempting to repair or work on your unit.

The manual for the XL1, which I've seen, is very technical, does not cover all internal components and circuits, just the major ones, and would be useless to anyone but a knowledgeable technician with a bench of test equipment and specialized tools. If the XL1s manual is like the manuals for the old L2 and A1 series, it may build on the content earlier manuals by reference to them rather than reprinting material that is not changed from the XL1. The lens has a separate service manual.

In the USA, start at 800-828-4040. Follow the prompts for parts if there is one.
