Question about Samsung VP-D20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When you initially used the unit was it with the battery or not? If it was with the battery was the AC hooked up also? You need to remove the batteries from the equation to find the problem. Hook the camcorder directly to the AC unit and see what it does. Also you do not mention how you know that the AC unit has power at the lead. Checking with a DMM does not garantee it. I have seen units which have the correct voltage until you put a load on the AC adapter. At this point the AC adapter could be bad, the battery could have a memory or be bad or the input jack could have a bad solder joint. If you have a DMM and know how to use it check the AC adapter for proper output. If it checks OK you will have to assume that it does not have the problem I mentioned. I have only seen that one time. With no battery on the camcorder, plug the AC adapter in and try the unit. If it does not work you probably have a broken input jack. If you are good with tools, have jewelers screwdrivers, magnifying glasses, a steady hand and lots of patience remove the covers to expose the jack and repair the connection. This should solve your problem. If you are not capable of the repair you will need to find a good reputable repair facility to take care of this. Cost should be less than $100 US. Good luck.
