Good Morning

Camera will show it's recording when it is not.

-Can hit REC and will go from STDBY to REC with no cards in camera

-Counter moves 

thoughts, it is the latest firmware.

Hi John

Thankyou for your help. We did resolve the problem. It was REC COMMAND setting.

When it is on, it allows you to control a external device without the cards recording..

thank-you for replying

Hello stevehughes,

Firmware shouldn't be an issue, but I would update it if the camera's not on the latest version just to be thorough. Is there anything connected to the camera's SDI or HDMI out ports? That's really the only thing I could think may be happening. If nothing is connected to the camera, I would suggest trying to reset the camera to default settings to see if that helps. The reset is in the System Setup (wrench) menu. If the issue still persists, then the camera would need to be sent into our factory service center.
