Change the lithium battery for the clock. It is found on the bottom of the camera. It is usually a CR2016, you can find it at any where watch batteries are sold

There is a flashing red light with a line between on canon ZR40 what does this mean


That is the symbol for the backup battery. It's a button-type battery that keeps enough power to remember the date and time when the main battery is removed. If the icon is lit, it means this battery should be replaced. Check your manual for location and type of battery. If you need, you can view and download the manual here.

I have a zr100 camcorder and I have a red flashing icon underneath the battery icon. It looks like a boat with a diagonal line through it with an arrow to the right of the line.


On page 24 of the manuel it shows the symbol that you mentioned below the battery symbol. It's labeled item 4. Which states "flashes in red when the lithium button battery is not installed, or when it needs replacing". I guess you need to check the lithium battery with a voltmeter to see if it's any good.

Canon MV650i Mini DV


I had the same problem a few days ago. I tried two different camera shops and they couldnt help and could only offer to send the camera back to Canon. I then decided to try changing the back-up battery (£3.50) and the flashing red light was the back up battery, that has now gone however I still have the black screen or a series of vertical coloured lines, which is obviously a different problem!

Red flashing icon


Mine had that too. It means the backup battery is low. It's located in a panel behind the LCD screen. You can find details on page 19 of the users manual. If you don't have your manual, you can download it for free from canon's website.

Flashing red icon


It must be the internal battery problem. Change the button cell that is located near the charging input jack.
