Sony HDR-fx7 power problem

My camera is not powering up or starting. The battery doesn't charge either. I can plug it in and there is no response. I have service manual and got the tape out of the unit. I also tested the micro fuses and hey are working fine. Any thoughts

SOURCE: HDR-HC1 power keeps cycling

I had this exact problem, and the cycling would stop after about 30 sec. and then function properly. I believe a circuit was confused, mainly because I used an older battery and let it run out till the batt was dead - accidently - and when I put in a fresh batt, it no longer cycled and works perfectly to this day.

Now if I can get my computer to recognize the camera via firewire, I'd be golden.

Problem seems in power supply section at VC-516 (main board). If you know how to open and repair it, just check Fuses at VC-516 board and these are located near connector coming from battery / dc-in jack area. One fuse is open in this case.

I have a sony hdv 1080i camcorder. it works on mains power but will not work from a fully charged battery. Can anyone help suggest a solution?


Are these new batteries or old ones? If they are old it is possible that they will show as full but not have enough current to operate the device. If the batteries are over three years old or have been charged more that 300 times that is a distinct possibility. Also check the battery contacts on the device to make sure that they are not dirty. Clean with a pencil eraser.

Dear Sir, Recently acquired SONY HDR-PJ30. Bought extra np-fv100 battery for it. Doesn't function on PJ30!! Surprising is that it works fine on the HDR-SR5 that I gave to my youngest daughter. She...


Sry Sir, But unfortunately your device does not seem to support the battery pack although Sony sells them as an upgrade for your unit. Click HERE to see the three most common Sony replacement batteries for that device. Looking closely, i believe you may have a unit the is not throwing you the correct amount of power. Apply a voltmeter in DC to the two battery terminals and you should get 8.4 volts. If your reading is any more than .4volts difference contact Sony as you battery has malfunctioned. If it tests good, still call them and let them know that your handheld is not accepting it......They are designed to be compatible and Sony is VERY GOOD at replacing or repairing devices that aren't performing to their standards.
GOOD LUCK AND PLEASE RATE THIS POST!!!!
