Hi my name is Sheryl and I’m one of the lead technicians at Video One I like to go over a problem that we sometimes see on the Canon GL2 camcorders.

You may find that your side zoom control won’t work or you may find that the camcorder will zoom in and out on its own without you touching the zoom control. You may even find that in some circumstances that your top zoom control won’t function as well.

Basically what goes wrong is both the zoom control as well as the flexible cable that runs from the side cabinet into the main part of the camera goes faulty and these parts need to be replaced. It’s very important that when these repairs are done, they are done by an experienced technician.

Here at Video One we are very experienced at working on the Canon GL2 camcorders, we know how to repair them both reasonably and reliably.

Any time that we do any repairs to the camera we always include a full six month warranty, not just on what you sent the camera in for, but the entire camera.
