Sanyo Xacti (VPC C5E) digital movie camera NOT STARTING UP

Hi, My Sanyo Xacti (VPC C5E) digital movie camera was woking fine for more than one year : until yesterday evening i.e. when suddently it has stopped functioning. So it is not starting up at all and when I dock it (to charge the battery and to check possibility of battery being down) it just shows the green light meaning that the battery is full. There seems to be no way of starting up the Xacti. Any clues please? Regards, Usav

    Dear Sanyo-Cam-pro's and users,

    I was very happy using my Sanyo DMX-C% cam for tree years. Did a lot of promotions to family and colleague's. Now in a cold ( -2 c) whether photo-shoot all of a sudden no functions at all. Not with any of my 3 batteries nor the ac- adapter. The on/off switch, normally needed after battery swap, doesn't seems to do anything any more. Broken wires through th LCD-door-hinges perhaps? Over time the LCD-door opened sideways ok but i noticed it was a little bit more heavy to turn around.
    Very sorry, i cant use my friend any more.
    Any solutions? is there perhaps a combination of buttons to press to make a total reset?
    Please any ideas will be very welcome. Sanyo is top!
    Krgds, Jos

    My Xacti C5 suddenly will not turn on. I have replaced the battery but still nothing. It will show the green light when in the charger but nothing works. Anyone have a solution?

This sounds like the same problem my daughter has with her camera (same model). Have sent it away to be repaired and have been told it needs a new MAIN PCB. The total cost is £232.65 !!! We are still looking around to see if we can get it done cheeper !

Dvd software for my Sanyo Xacti VPC-CG9

You can write a data dvd that will play on any DIVX or XVID dvd player that supports this format:

" ISOstandard MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 (AAC audio)."

Some Blue-Ray players play this format, like Sony's PS3. The PS3 will play these videos from a thumbdrive.

Some Sanyo camcorders ship with a disk containing commercial software to convert your .MP4 videos to standard dvd video, such as Ulead MovieFactory. If you have lost your disk, Sanyo will not allow you to download it from the website. I cannot recommend where to download commercial software, such as MovieFactory or Nero Vision.

If you can't find it, just plug the camera in, go to start > my computer and under "devices with removable storage" should be able to click on the card and open it up then copy it to a folder on your computer. I'm not sure what format the videos are saved in, but my digital camera does little movies in .mov and all I do it drag them into a folder for future use.

Sorry I couldn't be much of help. Good luck on the search.
