Looking for a repair/service manual

Does anyone know a good place to find repair/service manuals online?

I'm looking for the service manual for the Canon UC100 camcorder. I've looked on the internet archive, iFixit, Manualslib, reddit, Youtube, but I couldn't find it. I'm not very good with electronics, so I don't really want to go in blind, especially with a camcorder.

If anyone knows where I could find it, or has it laying around somewhere, I'd be very grateful if you could send me a copy.
Thank you everyone in advance.

    What's wrong with it? Most just need to be cleaned.

      It's probably a capacitor, since it doesn't work even without a tape. apparently it's a known issue with Canons from these years. I have a feeling that if I open it I'll wonder how it didn't die sooner.

      This may or maybe not be the ntsc version https://www.servicemanuals.net/en/CANONVISION-ES70A-Service-Manual

      That's it! The insides should be very similar, so it will probably work. Thank you very much! I'll update if I manage to fix it, if the thread is still around.

    >know a good place to find repair/service manuals
    do I look like a librarian?
    no, because librarians don't exist.
    and also there is no public building where you can go and speak with a librarian to ask for help finding a book.

      Libraries will never carry service manuals for outdated electronics. You would know this if you saw the sun more than three times a year, basement boy.

        You're right.
        Rather than actually ask a librarian, it's a much better idea to just assume that they "will never" have the book OP is looking for, and to not even try.
        Oh, and be sure to insult anyone who even suggests that a library might be a good resource for help finding a book. Otherwise they might actually ask a library for help, and for some reason it's important to you that they don't.

        "Assume and insult."

          This is not a type of book that libraries will ever carry in any world due to its value and obscene rarity, including the delusion you live in where everything is somehow a conspiracy against you.
          Finding a PDF of one is luck, finding a real copy is winning a lottery. Spending the money to purchase one from some collector is complete stupidity unless you are a shop specializing in repairing the item it is for.
          Take a guess how I know these things.

              I started and operated an electronics repair shop for several decades.
              Libraries will never carry these things and will never have the means to find them for you. They are not circulated literature, they only exist second-hand because a very few authorized service centers did not destroy them as instructed by the manufacturer.

              Do you think a librarian can only help people find books that they have on their shelves there at that library?

              Libraries can only find books that they have catalogued in their system, which books like these will not be in. Welcome to how the real world is, zoomer.

          Impressive moronation, really. Why would you enter this thread and get frustrated when people correctly point out that you have no fricking clue what you're talking about?

            are magical beings

            Anyone who is a librarian in 2024 probably is a magical being. Imagine the type of person who still goes to a library. homeless dirt who don't own a computer or phone, and boomers. Hey, I'm a boomer and I went to my local library back before Covid ruined it, and it was hilarious trying to find a biography of Openheimer but they had five copies of Amy Schumer's bio; and this is in a university town.

            Damn she pretty.

    Wow, so great. I'm so glad you made a thread about this topic you totally couldn't have just gotten the answer to in half a second.

      That's the instruction manual, not the service manual. I said in my original post that I had already looked on Manualslib.

        No worries, mate. Some folks just like to hate to the point of exclusion. I'm American and I love Tanya for the help she's been to me for many years now. Try it, you won't likely be disappointed.

    My local library has an industrial laser cutter, and an array of 3D printers you can use.
