I looked on the manual about this problem and i didnt saw any article that is related to this.....thanks......

The lithium battery (CR-1616) is dead. It's located under the regular battery compartment.

I have a CANON mini DV ZR100 and on the fold out screen underneath the battery symbol there is a red flashing image with a slash through it. what does this mean?


Your Button cell back up battery is dead. If you remove you main batter you will see a smallflip door towards the top of the cammera. Replace the Cr1616 button cell battery. Without this battery your camera will not remember the current settings like the date. Batteries are available for $5 to $7. Quick and easy.

There is a flashing red light on the charging light when the camcorder is plugged in. we just replaced the the back up battery, but the light is still blinking.


The blinking red light is normal. It tells you that the camera is plugged in and charging.

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.

Can't download video to macintosh from the canon zr100


Unfortunately, it looks as if you may have one of the macs that just doesn't want to co-operate. If the FW cable is brand new, i highly doubt you've got a defective cable. After doing a Google search, Canon knows of this problem and hasn't offered any real support or a solution. I could only assume it's the camcorder and not the mac. Give me another day or so and I'll get back to ya, I'll see if I can borrow my friends camcorder and try to get it to work on one of my other macs. 
In the meantime, try opening imovie , connect the camcorder while it's off, turn it on and set up imovie as if you were about to capture ntsc footage. Next play the tape in the camcorder and see if imovie recognizes it then.

Canon zr100 died: no power


If you have had the camera for a long time, it may have simply died. This may not help, but you could leave the camera on untill the battery loses all power, then try to turn it back on, and see if it works.

USB Port


To transfer video to your computer from the ZR100, you will need to connect the camera to the computer via the firewire interface. The ZR100 does not have a USB interface.
