Question about Canon ZR70MC Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a canon zr70mc camcorder that is not working. When I turn it on, I get a black screen- it is not showing the images. It does show all the words and opens with the canon logo, but then just shows black with words and it flashes a small red image with a slash through it and an arrow pointing left. It looks like a small rectangle with slanted edges, the line through it and then a small arrow on the top pointing left. Does anyone know what this warning is? Could this be the cause of the black screen and image not showing? Is there some setting that may have been changed that would cause the black screen? Could the camera be fixed, or do I need to buy a new one? I took it to Circuit City and the person there said I should buy a new one. The camera is about 4 years old. I really appreciate any help. Thank you.
I think you have two different issues here. The black screen may be due to a CCD failure. Canon has a worldwide service notice regarding this issue, and will repair your unit at no cost if they determine this is the problem (it sounds like it is).
The little red symbol indicates your backup battery (or date/time battery) CR1616 needs to be replaced. It is located behind a small square panel which you can see to the left of the menu buttons when you open the LCD panel.
