I opened my camera Canon MD160 after a long time, connected via firewire with my pc and tried to capture video on premier. I opened the capture window tab of premier, the "stop, play, rewind" buttons are working (hence there's no connection problem), but there is no screen image and therefore no "record" button appears, so i can't capture my footage.

According to the manual, which you can download from the Canon site, that red symbol is showing that the Backup Battery needs replacing. This is shown on page 19 of the manual. It is possible, because this is used to retain date and time settings etc, that this is causing your problems with the "Camera Window" software.
If you have a “PLAY” button and no “REC” button, then I would assume that the camera is in playback mode, not record mode.
That is correct. I checked on top and it says "Capture device Offline".
