My advice is that you should by a DV cleaning cassette. Put this in the camera and run it for 10 to 20 seconds only. running the cleaning cassette for a long time may damage the head. good luck! Luwangula
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.
I would check the wires connented to the display screen. they run from the bottom to the screen.
You have disassemble the camera. I would think first before tring this. Remove 3 screws on bottom, 1 in battery compartment, and 1 at very top of usb flap (look good). Now slide the side piece starting at the usb flap then apply pressure to top and away from unit. now look for 1 silver and three black screws (facing back and front, look good). See the screen look at the bottom follow the wires to the connector on the very bottom and check that.
Remember to replace battery door first if it fell off during process. *TEST NOTE: You can place batteries in and place a penny across the bottom to test before you put it back together.
