If you don't use the battery for a long period of time even a new battery may become dead. You can try a new battery. If it still doesn't work then the problem is with the charging IC. u can also try a desktop charger instead of direct charger.
there are several power cords on ebay for your camera as well as new batteries if you need one. Do an ebay search for MV 800 charger, here is an example of one I found. http://cgi.ebay.com/Desktop-Charger-Canon-MV800i-Camcorder-/380317041118?pt=Batteries_Chargers&hash=item588ca981de#ht_3278wt_1141
Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts. Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

I took the camera to the representative and we started various tests such as: Tried My battery in OTHER camera .... not working Tried OTHER battery in MY camera .... works Tried charging MY battery in OTHER Camera .... works Tried MY battery in MY camera and charged .... worked Bottom end is that my charger is not working although it heats when "charging".
Now i will look at the pins in the charger to see if they are working or not.
The flashing "boat" in the middle of the viewfinder just means the button battery is dead. Camera will still work. It's the little pull-out light grey plastic thing that's next to the heel of your right hand when you're using the camera normally. You need a CR2025 cell.
This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).
So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!
