Re: ES55

This symbol means that the backup battery needs to be replaced. The backup battery is located under a panel on the left side of the camcorder, and the main battery pack has to be removed to see this panel. The battery is a CR2025 (Duracell DL2025).

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.

I have a zr100 camcorder and I have a red flashing icon underneath the battery icon. It looks like a boat with a diagonal line through it with an arrow to the right of the line.

On page 24 of the manuel it shows the symbol that you mentioned below the battery symbol. It's labeled item 4. Which states "flashes in red when the lithium button battery is not installed, or when it needs replacing". I guess you need to check the lithium battery with a voltmeter to see if it's any good.

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.

Red blinking on screen.

This symbol indicates that the backup (date/time) battery CR2025 needs to be replaced. This battery is held in a holder that slides out from the bottom of the camera. Pages 8 and 104 in the manual (available here) detail how to do this.

Black screen on camcorder

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.

Unknown sign

Most likely the lithium Ion battery has been discharged. Leave it plugged in for 24 hours without turning it on and it should charge the battery.

Flashing icon

I just fixed mine accidentally... Try this: with Camera on open tape deck, then manually press in the tape cartrige till it clicks in and you hear the tape gears turning then close the tape door last. email me if it works for any of you.
