Hi,
You can try the following steps , plug in a fully charged battery and not the Ac adapter. Power on the cam and reset the Camcorder, press the RESET button located behind the LCD Panel of the Camcorder.
If the same doesnot work , you need to get a new Ac adpater.


Thanks

How long is been since you use the camera?
The battery might have discharged but it should work if you connect the AC adapter unless the adapter is defective.

    If you camera is less then a year old, still under manufacturers warranty. If after charging the battery still does not work, I would suggest to call them.

It is not possible to record the videos onto a Memory Stick Duo or Pro Duo, as this Camcorder DCRDVD305 does not support video recording onto the Memory Stick.
To record the videos you may use 8cm DVD-R/DVD-RW/DVD+RW.
