hey guys, its been a while.
ok so i have a buggered canon xm2. when i record it pretends to be recording, red light and on-screen graphic are all there. however, when i come to view the recording, there is nothing there (if its a new tape) or footage from a previous shoot.
now on occasion it has said that the heads are dirty, so i go through the head cleaning routine - bit of spit and wire wool and maybe the odd cleaning tape but, it then will record fine but only for one take, then we are back to pretending to record.
any ideas or suggestions?
i have called canon who offered no advice at all and just wanted me to send it in to them so they could then have a look and let me know the damage/cost to fix.
