SOURCE: Canon MV550i Mini DV Digital- red flashing symbol

from canon's support page:

This symbol indicates an empty or missing backup battery. The backup battery allows the camcorder to retain date, time and other settings when the main power source is removed.
The flashing symbol is not recorded by the camcorder so you can continue filming without problems.

To stop the flashing symbol remove the old backup battery and replace it with a new one, or recharge the built-in lithium battery if the camcorder has a built-in rechargeable battery.
Note: when the backup battery runs out during filming please do not remove the power supply (battery pack) before the camcorder is powered from a household power source and power adapter, or the user settings and date/time will be reset.

For more detailed information please consult the instruction manual.

SOURCE: 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.

The red flashing symbol means that the backup battery needs to be replaced. I'm not sure that it is what is preventing recording, but you can change it and see if it works.

The backup battery is a CR2025 button battery. It is located under a square plastic cover, beneath the main battery. Take the main battery off and you should see this cover. The backup battery should be installed with the + facing out.

What is wrong with my old VP-E405 video camera ?


Your camcorder has what is referred to as 'bad caps'. This affects almost all brands and models between the years of 1998-2006, and previous. For a discussion of 'bad caps, please visit: Home FAQ

I have a problem with a Conon XL2 camcorder. It is flashing CP2 in the view finder when shooting to tape.


The camcorder is simply informing you that the Custom Preset 2 settings are in effect. Refer to the "Using the Custom Preset" section of the manual (page 68 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download a copy here.

I push the tape in as to load it and it immediately pops back out.


Your camera is experiencing condensation - your LCD should have a flashing image of a red droplet (this is a condensation warning). REMOVE THE CASSETTE to avoid damaging it.

Another cassette CANNOT and SHOULD NOT be loaded when condensation is detected.

Leave the cassette compartment open - its takes an hour until the water droplets evaporte. After the condensation warning stops flashing, wait for 1 more hour before resuming use.

Flashing red image


If the rectangular symbol has a droplet shape in it as well as the red line across it, it means there is condensation in the camera. The manual recommends that you take the tape out, leave the mechanism open and allow the camera to dry out in a suitable environment for 2 -3 hours - presumably a warm dry place. It suggests you check it then and even if the warning has now gone out to wait another hour before using the camera again. I have downloaded a copy of the instruction manual in Adobe Acrobat format from the Panasonic website. Jack
