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.

i think it's the button cell that's CR1616 that's hidden when your battery is in the camcorder. Remove the battery to reveal that little plate to replace your button cell. It functions properly just that time and date might not be recorded.

No. The power converter inside the camera is damaged some how. It says the battery needs charging because power cannot get to the main circuit - it needs to be taken apart and isolate the crack or open contacts.

Sounds like the memory battery indicator. Does it look like a button battery with a slash? If it is, you probably cannot set the date and time also. It takes a CR 1616 button battery and goes in the window behind the main battery.

Have an IX1s Canon camcorder. Flashing red screen icon.


it means a particular battery is low or out of the camera, which hold the date and time memory of your videos. don't worry it doesn't affect your any recording or playback of videos. I have one and is blinking from past one month. no issues at all.

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.

There is a red flashing symbol on the screen


If there is a red symbol that flashes at the bottom of the screen, it means NO CARD. No more images can be taken. For more details refer page 101 in the below link.

Red blinking on screen.


This symbol indicates that the backup (date/time) battery CR2025 needs to be replaced. This battery is held in a holder that slides out from the bottom of the camera. Pages 8 and 104 in the manual (available here) detail how to do this.

Black screen on camcorder


I think you have two different issues here. The black screen may be due to a CCD failure. Canon has a worldwide service notice regarding this issue, and will repair your unit at no cost if they determine this is the problem (it sounds like it is).

The little red symbol indicates your backup battery (or date/time battery) CR1616 needs to be replaced. It is located behind a small square panel which you can see to the left of the menu buttons when you open the LCD panel.
