Question about Samsung SC-L810 Camcorder
While you say the battery is OK you do not say how you know that. Most camcorders can be run off the AC adapter. If this is the case plug your AC adapter in to the mains and check the output with a DMM on VDC for the proper output. If you don't have a meter you could borrow one from a friend or buy one. They are fairly inexpensive now and even a cheap one is good enough for this job. Besides, they are handy for a lot of other duties. Read the instructions but basically set to Volts DC, 20 volt scale and place red wire on the inside of the power plug (which connects to the camera) and the black wire to the outside of the barrel. If you have the correct voltage (it is listed on the data plate of the power supply)you are probably OK. On occasion I have seen units check correct for voltage, but when hooked up the voltage drops. This is rare. and If you have the correct voltage your unit is probably OK. Check the voltage of the battery. If it is correct(the battery voltage is listed on it somewhere)then it is holding a charge. If both the battery and AC adapter check OK you have a problem with the camcorder. If you are handy with tools, have a set of jewelers screwdrivers (they can be purchased also and are fairly cheap), a set of magnifying glasses and lots of patience use the screwdrivers to remove the cases of the camcorder. When you get the cases off look for ribbon cables which are loose or out of their connectors. If you don't find any you probably have a problem which is beyond your repair capabilities and you will need to take it to a reputable repair facility. Good luck.
