I think that most do that, just hold the power button next to the "DIRECT DVD" and "UPLOAD" button, towards the left. =D

Open screen, go to menu, basic settings, quick restart and turn it off, then problem solved.

Use infolithium battery pack


I believe Shahid is correct... it's probably the pins.. try this... first make sure all switches are off during the entire process (viewfinder pushed in and keeping the LCD closed, try cleaning the pins on the back of the camera with a Q-Tip and Isopropyl alcohol (91% if possible)... leave it a bit damp and push the battery into place several times to clean it's contacts too.. then let everything dry, reconnect the battery and turn it on. The problem will hopefully be all gone.

Redl ight blinking but battery(ies) fully charged


Flashing red could indicate dew sensor (camera has condensation/ damp) or other fault. See your manual Troubleshooting section.

It keeps blinking red while it's charging and I got it yesterday.


The red light on the front of the camcorder is supposed to blink when it is charging. That indicates that it is still charging, the light will stop blinking when it is fully charged. Other than that does it work fine?

Flashing Red Light....


The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.

SONY DCR-SR300 with CMOS viewfinder


I suddenly had similar problems with my SR300. I replaced the flat ribbon cable (looks orange) between the body and the LCD display and camera works like new. The ribbon cable is subject to cracking the internal wires where it flexes when you open and close the LCD display. There was also a new part number for the cable so I suspect it is a known problem.
