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.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Flashing green light


hello,are you sure that you have not left your camera flash on,and virtually killed off the battery?as the zig zag icon usually refers to mostly flash related aspects of most modern cameras,all cameras need a certain base level battery power,before they will switch on for use,but may well display all manner of icon's and oddity's when the power is all consumed.hope that helps, cheers.

Everytime I snap a picture, the camera flashes three times. Help!


The camera is in Red-eye Reduction mode. The preflashes are intended to get the subject's pupils to contract, reducing the red-eye look.

Press MENU to display the menu. Press right-arrow to select the toolbox icon (Setup). Press the arrow keys to select Red Eye Reduction, and turn it off.

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.

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.

How do i get my flash to turn back on


Hi! To turn On the flash you just need to press the flash button on the top of the camera., Flash button is like a down arrow or lightning icon., make sure that the flash symbol is set to A -icon or eye- icon or may be a down arrow symbol., if you see on your LCD a circle icon with a down arrow it means your flash is off., Gudluck!

When i turn on my digital camera, in the upper left hand corner, there is a red, flash symbol which i don't know how to turn off??? Thank you in advance for your assistance.


You should be able to turn off your flash, or change the flash to a different flash setting by using one of the buttons on somewhere on your camera. The proper button is identified by the flash symbol, that looks the same as the one on your LCD screen, a jagged, down ward facing arrow, that looks something like a bolt of lightning. Simply press this, it will ether change the setting on your LCD, or bring up the settings that you can change manually by selecting whatever setting you want for the flash.If you don't want to change any of the settings, but want to clear the symbol off of your LCD screen simply hit the Display button that will hide those icons from your view and can be seen again simply by hitting display once more. I hope this is of some help to you, if not, consult your user guide or manual that came with the camera, it should explain exactly what to do. I hope that you have success, God bless...

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.
