XL1s - forget to use tapes in other players

Hi,

my XL1s doesn't stop preocuping me. Today we tried to put a Xl1s-tape in a Panasonic DV-Player to capture the pics. But it didn't work. Dropouts, pics in different speeds. The cutter said it looks like LP-Mode. But it wasn't like this. So we didn't find the reason and I am looking for some help of you.

Is there a official Canon comment?

Thanks,

Markus

Which Panasonic DV player? That might also be the issue, not just the XL1s?

Sorry, it's a Sony DSR 20 or 40 P. It works perfectly with GL1-material but fails with XL1s-tapes.

Today I will send my one to Canon Service. It seems they already know about the problem.

Sounds like they're going to tweak the tape transport a little bit.

I think this is a very common problem. The tape alignment must be very picky in the XL1. I have had it adjusted everytime my cameras go in for their checkups. I seem to run into this with at least 1 camera by the end of the year period between checkups.
