Question about Canon MV30i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Red blinking on screen.

On the screen on my Canon MV301 I always have a red blinking "thing" - its positioned underneath the battery image and slighly to the left of the battery, and looks like a "man in a boat".

I can't find my user manual anywhere so wonder what on earth this is?

Grateful for any assitance!

    Thanks guys. Camera is 15 years old, doesn't get much use these days however have noticed this red flashing symbol on the display in recent years for which I couldn't find any reference to it in the manual at all. Maybe Canon expects users to upgrade camera before the battery expires. Thanks again. Keep up the good word.

This symbol indicates that the backup (date/time) battery CR2025 needs to be replaced. This battery is held in a holder that slides out from the bottom of the camera. Pages 8 and 104 in the manual (available here) detail how to do this.

I have a CANON mini DV ZR100 and on the fold out screen underneath the battery symbol there is a red flashing image with a slash through it. what does this mean?


Your Button cell back up battery is dead. If you remove you main batter you will see a smallflip door towards the top of the cammera. Replace the Cr1616 button cell battery. Without this battery your camera will not remember the current settings like the date. Batteries are available for $5 to $7. Quick and easy.

THERE IS NO IMAGE COMING UP ON THE SCREEN OF THE CAMCORDER WHEN I TURN IT ON IT WILL NOT RECORD VIDEO OR TAKE PHOTOS THE SCREEN IS BLANK,WHY IS THAT,AND THERE IS THIS ICON IN RED BLINKING ON THE SCREEN


This is usually caused by a defective CCD image sensor and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these.

There is a flashing red light on the charging light when the camcorder is plugged in. we just replaced the the back up battery, but the light is still blinking.


The blinking red light is normal. It tells you that the camera is plugged in and charging.

ZR80 Mini DV Digital Camcorder: I have a blinking red icon with a slash through it...


Sounds like the memory battery indicator. Does it look like a button battery with a slash? If it is, you probably cannot set the date and time also. It takes a CR 1616 button battery and goes in the window behind the main battery.

Have an IX1s Canon camcorder. Flashing red screen icon.


it means a particular battery is low or out of the camera, which hold the date and time memory of your videos. don't worry it doesn't affect your any recording or playback of videos. I have one and is blinking from past one month. no issues at all.

What is red blinking light on Cannon ZR45MC screen? Will it show up on DV tape?


Hello, I just bought a canon zr45 today off a friend without the owners manual. I had the same problem. It is flashing because it needs a new 3 volt lithium battery. This is a back up battery. It is located underneath the regular battery pack. Take the regular battery pack off and you will see where it goes. I changed mine and it doesn't do it anymore. It shouldn't show up on your recordings. It didn't on mine. Also, you can download an owners manual for free off the internet. Just key in canon zr45 owners manual and you will see links that will take you there. I hope this helps.

Blinking lite


Do you have a lithium battery installed, open the lcd and you will see a gray cover. Take the cover off (pops off using your nail) and either the battery is not there or it is installed incorrectly.

Mv600i digital video camcorder - no image on lcd screen in cam or playback mode


please someone help with this. My camcoder works very well when watching things I've filmed before but when I want to record it does not function. All I get on the LCD screen is the blue screen with Canon on it and through the lens it is black. The lens cap is of course removed. Then when I turn the red button to off position the camcoder does not turn off and the screen remains blue. I have to remove the battery to turn it off.
I've had my camera for 4 years and I filmed so many precious family moments in it.
