Re: where do i charge the battery?

If you open the little thin plastic door (right next to the LCD viewing screen when the LCD viewing screen is closed), you'll be able to plug in your charger. if you still need help, email

I have a PV-IQ404 Panasonic Palmcorder that the power pack has been lost from. Can this be replaced?

By power pack do you mean the actual battery or the charger unit that plugs into the wall to charge or power your Palmcorder? Either way, bot are available on Ebay as universal units and you should make sure the charger or battery pack is for or a 6 volt capacity. Many chargers for these Palmcorders are labeled as VHS-C / 8MM, that should work with your camera. Universal battery packs are made reversable, meaning that you can flip the battery to accomodate several other camcorder models. I've replaced my batteries and charger for my Panasonic Palmcorder from Ebay.

Handycam not holding charge even with new battery.

Sometimes the batteries will build up a memory if they are only used for short periods of time and never used to the point of going completely dead, so possibly getting a new battery online. B&H photo is a pretty good site.
I know some chargers have an output to the cameras battery connector that powers the camera, and if that is plugged into the charger it will not charge the battery simultaneously.
If the camera is working when plugged into the power source it usually turns out to be a battery problem. Sadly the only choice it to buy a new battery.

    My Insignia HD DV HDMI will not charge!!!

    Occasionally the batteries in the camera die- so no amount of charging will fix that, but does the camera work when you have it plugged in to charge? Most cameras will run from the  charger , even if the battery is dead. If it runs from AC (wall plug), but not battery, it probably the battery, but occasionally it is the circuit in the camera that charges the battery. The last resort is an external battery charger (not all cameras have them), but if you can charge the battery elsewhere, then it is the circuit in the camera- you'll have to buy an external charger if one exists

    Is my camera broke?

    sounds like your battery or charger might be defective. I have this camera an when the battery is to low it flashes the screen.
    I still use the original charger that came with it to charge the batteries,been thru 4 of those. It seems if they set a while without being charged the go bad.

    Charger on cam does not work

    If your extended battery came with small cord the cord needs to be plugged into the battery and the camera DC outlet).  My Everio was doing the same thing and I did the above and it works.
