Telling you the Clock Battery is dead. There is a little grey door inside the LCD screen cavity. Takes a 2025 coin battery.

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.

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.

No Flash


Is there a symbol on the screen of a lightning bolt in a circle with a diagonal line going through it? If so, your flash is turned off. If not, maybe the pictures you're trying to take don't require flash. Do they seem to coming out ok?

Flashing symbol


This symbol means that the backup battery needs to be changed. The backup battery is a button-type battery, CR1616. It is located under the main battery behind a small square panel. Instructions for changing it are in the manual -- look under "backup battery" in the index.

Flashing red symbol like a bowl crossed out


it means you have no back up battery installed to save time/date info. I know on the GL2 if you open the LCD screen there is another small plastic tab you can open and insert a relatively small battery. Do it and the icon will disappear. Otherwise its no big deal. If you dont need time/date stamps on your tapes then there is no need to install the battery unless you are just annoyed.

Camera turns off


the red symbol is the erasure prevention slider on the tape. check it's not on or push the slider on and off prevention. this should fix the red symbol, you might have to do it a couple of times before it works. not sure what F14 is can't find it in the manual. try the solution here. if it still turns off after a few seconds i have another way to fix the power.
