When I connected the utx-b1 transmitter to my camcorder the feed sounds clean through the left speaker, but has a very low and distorted sound coming from the right speaker. Could this be a setting problem in the transmitter or a problem with the camcorder?

The battery has to generate quite a bit of power to energise the plates in a condenser mic. So wasting energy by powering an LED when it's not really needed is a bad idea. The light 'blinks' to confirm that you switched it properly. After that, it will only blink again when you move the power switch to OFF unless there's some battery warning indication built in.
As for the mic not working; most of the time this is down to poor quality or broken cables; or incorrect connections; or the wrong settings on the receiver or mixing console.
If it seems as though the transmitter signal is being received but there is no audio, disconnect the 3 or 4 pin connector of the mic and touch the different pins while transmitting to the receiver. If there is audio hum or buzz, the mic itself is probably dead. A wire could be off inside its connector.
Try switching mic's with known good system. The small diameter cable going to headset and lav mic's are easily damaged. If the mic feeding the bodypack is good, fresh battery, mute disengaged and channels set properly then it's Shure factory service time.
To avoid feeback whilst recording, make sure all speakers and monitors are turned off while you record. Otherwise the microphone will pick up both the sound of your voice from your mouth as well as the sound of your voice coming out of the speakers, causing an endless loop of nasty feedback! So just make sure speakers (incl. computer speakers if those are what you are using to listen) are muted whilst recording!
Sounds like some type of manufacturer's flux problem. As an ex-Sony pro dealer we saw something like this years ago. You might want to contact Sony support (industrial or broadcast, not consumer) and see if there is a technical bulletin out on this problem.
