It eventually worked after disconnecting the FW400 4-pin portion of the cable from the camera, and reconnecting it over and over, about twenty times. The record pause indicator showed up in the monitor. We swapped cables and still experienced it, but finally were at a place where once it shows the indicator, we do not bump the camera at all. Makes it difficult for handheld operation though. A friend looked at it and said the port on the camera doesn't hold the cable well, and that it could be replaced. He ordered the camera manual (not the normal instructional manual, but the geek version that has all of the boards, components, soldering parts, etc.) and will be swapping out this part soon. It's a relatively cheap part.
