    This red "canoe" warning is an indication that you need to replace the CR1616 battery, a simple and cheap fix as these wristwatch type batteries are widely available.

    This fix applies to all the Canon MV series cameras, although the location of the battery might differ from that of the MV700i.

    Remove the main Canon battery from the back of the camera, and you will find a small hatch door which contains the small silver CR1616 battery.

    This battery manages internal functions when power is off such as date/time settings and user preferences.

    Lever it out from the top using the hatch door and replace with a new one, and you'll need to reset the clock and user settings.

    Good luck!

It may be that the internal back up battery needs replacing

The Brake warning light comes on. I checked the brake fluid level in master cylinder & it was okay. The fluid looked dirty. Please help


Sharon, Check to make sure emergency brake is not on and fully released, try not to drive your vehicle if the red brake warning light is on. Could have air in the system from a small crack in brake line, faulty master cylinder, faulty caliper etc. Have a good tech. check braking system, diagnose and estimate repair.

I have a fiat scudo 1.9td el combi, what is making the red light come on? description below. I am worried, can you help me?


This sounds like the coolant level warning light. It probably flashes when the coolant is low. Check your coolant level and add up to the full mark when cold.

Will I get a ticket if the canoe is longer than my car?


In general, if you carry something that overhangs the vehicle, you must have a warning sign or marker on your car. The maximum overhang is 50 cm on either side and you must have it securely tide to the car. You can read more here: http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/loading-your-car-safely.html

You did right ... You can probably purchase the manual from Ford. See your dealer for best results ... of course you can probably find it on line as well.

I have a flashing red symbol on my screen, that looks like a canoe with a line through it. I cannot find anything in my manual that relates to it. I have a Canon MV630i, have you any idea what it could be?...


Hello,

This is the warning that the backup battery needs replaced.

Here is a link to your manual:

http://files.canon-europe.com/files/soft29694/manual/MV600i_IB_ENG.pdf

Go to Page 17 for a description and instructions for replacement. Remember to power it with a power source when replacing or you will lose all your settings.

I have a very small icon in red on the viewing


From what you are saying it sounds like the battery warning symbol. Have a look at page 150 onwards in the instruction manual. All the symbols are displayed there.
