    'BACK' message on CFV-50 LCD--what does it mean?

    I was out shooting my 501CM with its new CFV-50 back when a flashing yellow box with the word BACK in black letter appeared on the LCD screen. I turned off the back and turned it on again--and again the flashing yellow box with BACK in it.

    I looked through the manual and could not find any reference to this.

    Is it an error message?

    If so, what does it mean?

    Thanks.

    This is a Battery warning.
    The information is located on page 36 of the CFV50 manual.

    A warning on the display appears as a flashing yellow icon in the top right of the screen signifying that the battery should be charged (or changed) as soon as possible. The warning icon will also appear with a FireWire connection and will in addition turn red to signify that the camera battery is completely exhausted.

    Thanks, Paul.

    Wonder why they didn't say BATT?

    Would have been self-explanatory.

    I think the belief was the symbol was that of a battery and the phrase "Back" indicates the battery on the back needs to be changed.

    is there any chance to check the capacity of the battery before i start a shooting?
    i have two batteries and every time i go on location i have to charge both - just in case, even i if i don't plan for a long time shooting. it's weird!

    No, there is no battery status to indicate remaining capacity.
