XL1s - sporadic video/audio recording problem
Posted 14 March 2006 - 07:06 PM
two event recordings have been ruined because of it, at
one event...the 1st tape I shot was perfect the 2nd was
bad. The other event, the recording was bad all the
way through..... but a week before I shot two other
events and there were no problems. A vertical strip (1/4 inch wide) of pixellation appears on the right hand side of the video.
Figured its better to show folks, so the link below sends you to a clip I made of one of the bad recordings. it is a quicktime file.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have not tried cleaning the heads, that will be something I'll do, but I have played the tapes on anothe player and another camera and they still have the same vertical pixellated line. what is strange is that I have recorded tapes before and after and in between these two problem tapes and have not had the problem show up.
Thanks, I'll go ahead and try the head cleaner.
Try cleaning the heads. If you haven't done that already, that's definitely where I'd start. And if you've been using the camera for a while and haven't cleaned them, that's probably the issue. Also, you might want to try playing the tapes in another deck to see if you get the same problem.
