Both my canon video camcorders ( XH G1 and XL H1 ) pauses during playback or capture. Both are a few years old. The tapes I am using are new professtional Quality. Any Ideas?
While recording everything is fine.

Thanks for posting.
How long after you start playback does it pause?

It will pause after only a few frames. It will then play for a couple of seconds then pauses, this keeps repeating.
I just noticed this accelerated play then pause a few days ago.
Months ago it did this but not nearly as frequently. I blamed this early pausing on the tapes I bought, since I was in need of fresh tapes on a job (my pro tapes took a hit and were broken) so I had to buy local Wal Mart tapes to finish the job.
Luckily I was able to pull enough footage off these to finish the job.
Since my first post I researched some and read that people were hitting the bottom of their camcorders during play back and this would resolve the pausing. I am not a fan of this solution. I also read in there that someone thought that the rollers or wheels in the camcorder are lose or worn.
Does the record and playback use the same drive system? If so this should not be the problem since when recording the time code keeps advancing without pausing.
