Question about Canon ZR400 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The red replace/low internal battery symbol is being displayed on the LCD screen. I have tried replacing it with 2 brand new identical batteries (CR1616) and still have the symbol. At the same time this occurred I can no longer access the menus/volume which could be because it uses the internal battery to "save" information and has now locked them out.
Just as a follow-up I managed to locate the problem. I opened the camcorder up as it is out of warranty anyways and found that there is a thin flat flexible cable which I will call a ribbon cable that is broken. It connects the main circuit board to the one that holds the external battery and internal battery. I have called Canon to purchase this part (it has a part number etched on it which when you read it off they say it sounds like a legitimate part number) and so far have not been able to get it (they assume it is part of the main circuit board assembly and have not been able to actually locate this part number). As it stands now I know the problem and can not get the part.
