It must be the internal battery problem. Change the button cell that is located near the charging input jack.

SOURCE: Card Error

From what I know, and card over 2gb needs a different reader. in this case, I am guessing that the card is an SD card. If you look carefully, you will see HC right below the SD logo. these are High Capacity SD cards, totally, different from traditional SD cards. so what you need to do, is find a 4gb regular SD card (highly doubt one exists) or get a smaller regular SD card (2gb Max I think)

SOURCE: I have an older (2003)cannon zr70mc camcorder.

This model is not compatible with SDHC cards, only SD (or MMC). SD cards, by protocol, are 2 GB maximum capacity.

Every time I go into capture or video mode the key icon shows and I can't take picture nor record videos


I think the key is telling you that the video card is locked/ write protected. Assuming its an SD card. Take it out of the camera and look at the left hand side, there should be a notch that you can slide up and down, move it to unlock. If the notch is broken, cover it with a small piece of tape. Rather like we used to with cassette and VCR tapes.

If its not the card, then you may have photo/file protection switched in on your camera, you'll have to go throught the menu settings.

My insignia hddv hdmi camcorder says memory full, even though everything we've shot was either downloaded or erased (too easily by my son, by the way). Is it possible the stuff is in a recycling can...


Is it the camera memory or the SD memory? Look on the menu screen on the bottom right. If the camera is not recognizing your SD card, it is saving to the camera memory which is very small and may give you 20 secs of video. It is supposed to automatically recognize your SD card but may not be doing that at all. If it doesn't do it automatically, I have found no way to get it to do it. The menu contains no option for formatting an SD card and it can't if it cannot recognize it anyway. I have tried reformatting the SD card in another camera. It may be the SD card size is too small and it won't recognize. I don't know. I have one and can't get it to work (recognize either one of two SD cards that I already had) and plan on taking it back to Best Buy to see if they have a solution before I buy new SD card. Anyway if you see "int" in the lower right that means it is recording to the internal memory and not your SD card.

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Battery Installation
An adult must install batteries. Here’s how:
1. Using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) remove the screws and Watertight Cover from the
bottom of the camera.
2. Remove the screw and Battery Compartment Cover .
3. Install two (2) AA alkaline batteries (not included) making sure the (+) and (-) ends face the
proper direction as indicated inside the battery compartment.
4. Replace the Battery Compartment Cover and tighten the screw.
5. Replace the Watertight Cover and tighten the screws firmly to ensure a good seal.
Optional SD Card
Your Camera will hold approximately 10 minutes of video or 250-1000 still photos. Since portions
of the free memory space indicated in the Menu Mode are used to store the photo program, the
available space for storing photos etc., may be reduced. These numbers may also vary depending
upon the camera mode settings and the images being captured. To enlarge the memory, an
SD card (not included) may be purchased from your local camera store. To install the card an
adult must:
1. Make certain the camera is turned OFF.
2. Using a Phillips screwdriver (not included) remove the screws and Watertight Cover from the
bottom of the Camera.
3. Slide the SD card (not included) into the slot until it clicks. (DO NOT force the SD card. If you
feel resistance, remove the card, make sure it is facing the correct direction, and try installing
again).
NOTE: SD card label must face toward the Camera Viewfinder and the edge of the card with the
copper contacts must be inserted first.
4. Replace the Watertight Cover and tighten the screws firmly to ensure a good seal to keep
water from entering the card slot.
IMPORTANT NOTES:
• If the Watertight Cover is not completely sealed, water may enter the compartment causing
irreparable damage to the camera.
• USE CAMERA IN FRESH WATER ONLY. DO NOT USE IN SALT WATER.
• Using the Camera at a depth of more than 3 feet is not recommended.
TIP: Keep an eye on your battery level by checking the Battery Gauge in the top-right corner of
your screen. If the Gauge is red, new alkaline batteries need to be installed.

camera and the SD card. To remove the card, press in on it and it will pop out.

Problem with taking picture with SD card


The only thing I can recommend is using the brands of memory cards that Casio recommends. They are Panasonic, San Disc, Toshiba. Make sure the card is formatted with the camera before use.

New Card


I don't know if this is related to the recording problem, but I believe the red blinking icon may be telling you to replace the backup battery. It's a button-type battery and is located under a small panel located in the area where the LCD folds into, just below and to the left of the buttons there. The battery is a CR1616 battery. Try replacing it and see if it resolves the recording issue.

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.

Sd card


I can think of a few things that might be wrong:

- Is the card write protected? Some SD cards have a small white tab that you can move to one of two locations. This allows you to make the card write protected.

- Has the card been formated in the camera? I could not locate a manual for this camera, but most cameras have the ability to format the memory card.

Lastly, I don't think you'll be able to record video to the card. Most of these camcorders have an SD card only for still images.

Good luck.
