    I am one of the lead technicians at VideoOneRepair.com. We are a repair shop that specializes in only Sony and Canon Prosumer camcorders.

    I would be happy to help you with your Canon GL2 camcorder, however can you please provide me with more information? Is the camcorder working correctly? Are you referring to the battery icon on the LCD screen? Can you describe what the red blinking icon looks like? Please feel free to call, email or post and I would be happy to respond.

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.

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.

This is the icon to warn you to replace the back up battery which is housed behind the main battery unit. See page 15 of the manual.

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.

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.
