I’ve got a Canon Vixia HDV30 HDV camera that records to Mini-DV tapes. For some weird reason I can’t access the menu or play/ffw/rew, although it does record and the tape does move. I also can’t seem to locate a reset button anywhere on the camera, which apparently the HDV20 had. And it seems that none of the buttons want to work, although when I switch the camera into “idiot” mode the camera will do everything like white balance, the functions do work but I’m locked out.
Anyone know what the problem is or how to reset the camera?
The Canon HV30 comes with a small remote control that allows you to control the camera in record and playback situations. It is Wireless Controller WL-D87. I hope this helps.
