Canon XL1s, during playback sound goes in and out?

    I have a Canon XL1s. When I playback a tape previously recorded from
    another Canon XL1, the sound goes in and out. In the display it keeps
    switching from saying "16 bit" to "STEREO 1". Every
    time it switches to "STEREO 1" is when the sound goes out. But if I
    record a tape on the XL1s and play it back, it plays fine. Also if I
    play those previously recorded tapes in a 3rd player, they will play
    fine. So basically, it's like my XL1s, doesn't like tapes previously
    recorded in other camcorders. Any suggestions on a fix or what causes
    this? Thanks.

    It was long play. Thanks. I'm getting a copy of a standard play tape
    I did tonight and going to test that. That's probably the problem,
    thanks again.

    Did you record standard play or long play. Long play recording (90 minutes
    on standard-length tapes) is reported to cause interchangeability issues.
