The best solution is to send the product back to the manufacturer for repair or replacement. If you have a receipt for the product and its within the warranty period (1 year) they will do this free of charge. I can help you with the process.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi, there's a red icon/symbol flashing on the display...it looks like a rectangular symbol with a arrow... I think it's related to the eject-button...


The flashing icon says there is no tape in the camera. If that's incorrect then there is a problem in the cameras tape detection circuitry and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

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.

Is there another part to the error code besides the 8 like a letter in front of it?

Flashing red image


If the rectangular symbol has a droplet shape in it as well as the red line across it, it means there is condensation in the camera. The manual recommends that you take the tape out, leave the mechanism open and allow the camera to dry out in a suitable environment for 2 -3 hours - presumably a warm dry place. It suggests you check it then and even if the warning has now gone out to wait another hour before using the camera again. I have downloaded a copy of the instruction manual in Adobe Acrobat format from the Panasonic website. Jack
