Question about Canon ZR20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Blinking red light in LCD Display

My camcorder has begun to display a blinking red rectangle with a diagonal line through it. I recharged the battery and the same symptom is present.
I purchased a new battery pack and still the same symptom is present.
The camcorder records fine, I just wanted to know if this image is something I should be concerned about.

SONY DCR200 CAMCORDER turn off when I Opend th LCD but it's working when attached with AC power Cable

More than likely the camera has an internal problem in the power supply section. There is an electronic switching circuit that switches between the battery input and the DC input coming from the AC adapter. Your camera requires professional servicing. One such place is Home Services Consumer Camcorder Sony

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.

Hi I have a new sanyo xacti vpc-ca9. It will not boot up - just a blinking red light on the top. The battery is charged and there is a 16GB SD card installed. Any ideas? Garth

I have the sam camcorder. It has the same problem. When you press the on/off button, it does not do any thing just red light blinking on the top. After wandering with buttons without really knowing what I am doing, I took it to Sanyo service center. They found the ribon connecting the LCD to main body being damaged. They replaced it and charged me $75 for that. After that the camcorder works good. I saw the ribon is very vulnerable. If you twist the camcorder just a little hard, that ribon may get shocked.

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.
