Hello, I have a Canon XHA1 camcorder that up until a few minutes ago worked fine. Now the tape playback functions fine but the camera part of the unit will not turn on.. I can turn the dial into any position and it remains un responsive. it has hand no trauma or impact. It just started not working. Suggestions?

Hello and thank you for your question. I look forward to assisting you today. When playing a tape back, does the video appear normal?

Also, have you checked the Lock/Standby switch lever that surrounds the record button?
