Question about Canon MV550i Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Hi I have a red flashing symbol like a bowl with a line through it whenever my camera is in use. How do i stop this?
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.

I have the same issue but the USB wont transfer the data!
If I replace this battery will it solve this issue?
