Re: lost power

Has the unit been dropped or banged around lately? If the unit has been dropped it could have a cracked board or bad/missing interconnection. If it hasn't been dropped you probably have a component which has shorted out, causing the problem with the battery, which has a lower current output capability than the charger. Now it sounds like the problem has gotten worse. If the unit is older and not that expensive it may not be worth fixing. Good luck.

I have a PV-IQ404 Panasonic Palmcorder that the power pack has been lost from. Can this be replaced?

By power pack do you mean the actual battery or the charger unit that plugs into the wall to charge or power your Palmcorder? Either way, bot are available on Ebay as universal units and you should make sure the charger or battery pack is for or a 6 volt capacity. Many chargers for these Palmcorders are labeled as VHS-C / 8MM, that should work with your camera. Universal battery packs are made reversable, meaning that you can flip the battery to accomodate several other camcorder models. I've replaced my batteries and charger for my Panasonic Palmcorder from Ebay.

Lost the charger of my sony dvd201 cam corder. is there any other way i can charge my camcorder?so i dnt have to buy a new charger? and do i need power to open the camcorder disc door?

Hello. Yes, you do need power to open the disc door. When you slide the disc cover open switch, you should hear the little musical sound, and then the "preparing to open cover" appears in the lcd display. Then the door opens automatically. As for charging the corder, you can get a new ac charger for 25 bucks on Ebay. Sony uses a special plug that is inserted. If you want to go the cheaper route, I saw mobile *battery* chargers for your unit(not to be used as camcorder power supplies) as inexpensive as 8 bucks...most were 10 dollars and up...the input voltage/current to the cam is 12v @ 500ma. However, the fact that the connector isn't the generic "cylinder" shaped power connector makes purchasing a compatable power source a necessity. ---Rick

Panasonic vx37

My old Panasonic Palmcorder IQ shows a red light in both switch positions-camera and VCR. Maybe yours has red for camera and green for VCR so you could tell them apart. I found that the Panasonic battery that came with the camera was the cheapest kind with the least charging time. I bought other batteries, they were good for a while, but now, many years later, they won' t hold a charge. Since I am only recording inside of my house, I have resorted to using the AC wall socket for power. I have to take the battery out of the camera. I found a power plug-in hole (like ones on cell phones) in the battery compartment. I also found one of these holes on my battery charger. My camera came with a double ended power plug. I plug one end into my camera and the other end into the battery charger. I plug the charger power cord into the wall outlet, and I have power to my older camera. Maybe you can find this double ended power cord at a store or on line.

Did you know that there are 2 kinds of batteries? Some have memories and others do not rely on a memory. The ones with memories have to be fully discharged or they will only charge a little, and keep charging less and less each time they are charged. The ones without the memory can be charged fully without being discharged fully. Check into battery information on line to get more information. Maybe you can get the non-memory kind.

Need power supply

Do you have a battery charger? If so, on mine I found a power-in little hole next to the battery power pins in the camera battery compartment. I also found the same type of power-in hole (like the ones found on a cell phone) on my battery charger. A double ended cord came with my camera. Maybe you have one, too. I plugged one end into the camera and the other end into the battery charger. Then I plugged the battery charger into an AC house outlet. This gave power to my camera. I am sure that you can find this type of double ended power cord on line or at a store.

DCR-SR42 Camcorder does not power up

I think AC power charger of your camera got defective first and later on battery lost its charge so no power for camera now to power up.
Try to borrow same charged battery from friend. neighbors etc and test your camera.
If camera power up, it is sure that charger has gone and you need new one.
let me know in that case to guide you further.

Power problem

Your battery is probabily uncharged or disconnected. Try taking the battery out and putting it back in. Then charge it (by plugging in the AC adapter) until the green activity light stops flashing. If this does not work, your battery is probabily dead. Did you short it out? Or perhaps it is old. Li-Ion batteries (the kind used in these machines) lose their ability to hold their charge in a few years - even if they're not in use! So, if your battery is 3 or more years old, try considering a new battery.

Hitachi Camcorder Finalizing

I struggled with the same problem. The disc cannot be finalized without the power adapter that connects the charger to the camera. After much research, I finally found the solution. Do a Google search for Hitachi part # EV11012. Panasonic uses the same part number for the same part but for some reason the Panasonic part is usually $50 more expensive than the identical Hitachi part. Either brand EV11012 part is the magical part you need and I found my brand new Hitachi OEM part online for $20. Prior to be finding the correct part number, merely searching the internet for an AC adapter for the BX35a only yielded results for all the crappy Chinese aftermarket battery chargers.
