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.

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.

Red blinking on screen.


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 don't know if this is related to the recording problem, but I believe the red blinking icon may be telling you to replace the backup battery. It's a button-type battery and is located under a small panel located in the area where the LCD folds into, just below and to the left of the buttons there. The battery is a CR1616 battery. Try replacing it and see if it resolves the recording issue.
