I get a flashing red warning symbol during play and record. It is on the bottom LHS of the screen just above the 'camera shake' indicator and looks like an oval with a back slash through it. This symbol is...


i think it's the button cell that's CR1616 that's hidden when your battery is in the camcorder. Remove the battery to reveal that little plate to replace your button cell. It functions properly just that time and date might not be recorded.

Flashing red symbol on screen - not 'no cassette loaded' symbol.


I had the same problem with my ZR800. After lots of searching on the net I found out what the symbol indicates. It means that the little battery that holds the memory for the clock is weak. It's under a little cover behind the main battery compartment. I put in a new one that the flashing icon is gone. I put the battery I took out into another ZR800 and the icon started flashing on it. A simple solution that Canon should have posted in the manual.

Model MV6i Camera works but have flashing red icon adjacent battery icon which looks like a 'little man in a row boat '!


This symbol means that your backup battery needs to be replaced. It is a "button battery", type CR1616. Instructions for replacing it are in the manual, which is available to view or download here.

That symbol ( ! ) is you're brake warning lamp. Check that you're parking brake isn't engaged(even a little bit) and check your brake fluid level

Canon MV550i Mini DV Digital- red flashing symbol


from canon's support page:

This symbol indicates an empty or missing backup battery. The backup battery allows the camcorder to retain date, time and other settings when the main power source is removed.
The flashing symbol is not recorded by the camcorder so you can continue filming without problems.

To stop the flashing symbol remove the old backup battery and replace it with a new one, or recharge the built-in lithium battery if the camcorder has a built-in rechargeable battery.
Note: when the backup battery runs out during filming please do not remove the power supply (battery pack) before the camcorder is powered from a household power source and power adapter, or the user settings and date/time will be reset.

For more detailed information please consult the instruction manual.
