Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV38 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I connect the handycam on power to charge the battery, battery symbol starts blinking and keeps doing so even after waiting for around 1/2 hr.. It did not charge the battery at all.
What's the problem? Is the battery dead and not usable anymore? The Handycam has not been used since last couple of months. I bought it 4 years back and battery has been doing good. I am not a big user of the handycam. 2 months break in recording is normal for me.
It does sound like the battery needs to be replaced, but it also could be an internal charging problem with the camcorder. I would try a new battery first, since it's the easiest and cheapest option
