    That should mean the batteries are low I would imagine.

    I have three P1s. 1.1.1. First one purchased in April 2014. The power light is red. The other two I bought in 2015 have the green indicator light and will beep upon turning controller on.

    If it is blinking red and beeping it means low battery.
    If it is steady red, it can be an old version of the remote (e.g. before 1.1.1, the one with the built-in back lever for camera pitch control) when the led color was red.
