    Default Canon XM2 - No Picture

    When I power on my XM2 I just get a blank screen with the various date, time, battery etc. icons. Similarly, when I play back a tape I just get a blank screen with the various icons. I've tried cleaning the heads but this hasn't worked. Can anyone help???

    Thanks

    Default Same problem.

    I came to this forum to post the exact same problem with my XM-2. From my understanding when I brought it in it's a pretty serious internal error not easily fixed. I am currently trying to get a quote on repairs but it might cost a fortune. I've had my camera for about 5 years and I only ever had one problem where I had to replace the tape head. (cost about 250 euros)

    That was a fairly straightforward repair so I'm afraid this one might end up costing us both a fair whack.

    Wish I could help but we're both in the same boat.

    Also if anyone knows what the tech support for Canon in Ireland is like could they please let me know? I've heard stories of one man, semi-retired fixing all the cameras in his spare time. please email or PM me if you know.
    Thanks

    Thanks for your reply. This sounds like it's going to be very expensive!!
