Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

Sony handycam just quit.. won't charge or work it just died no notice given.

Hi,
I have a Sony dvd handycam 201 it is approx 4 years old.. it was working fine then I switched the mini dvd's to an empty one and it refused to turn on.. so I thought it must need to be charged and it won't charge. I took the battery out and put it back in with no luck. I have even tried multiple times to charge it w/no luck..
Any suggestions?
Thank you ver much for your time,
Debb McCaughtry

My handycam doesnt show image, if i turn it on its all black!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hi, the reason it is all black is because the batterys need charging, how old is the Silver battery in it? remember they last only till it goes flat, they unlike the main battery do not charge up you see.

Sony handycam dvd92 battery warning light comes on even after battery is charged. bought new battery same problem


Yes the good old DVD camera, you like millions of others get this problem with that model, it is looking like DVD disk cameras have a 84% break-down problem, we need to get Sony to start to make proper cameras that use 8mm tape again, it is a media which does work well.

Battery life?


Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.
