Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC32 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
My Sony Handycam DCR-HC32 is not working in the battery mode but working in the direct supply mode. I tried replacing the old battery with a new one but couldnt solve the problem. I cant neither see the battery info nor charge the battery. When put to charge the light to indicate the cam is on charge too is not glowing.

Maybe this FAQ will help ya? Problem: Camcorder will not connect to iMovie - No camera attached Possible Solutions: * Are you using a 4 to 6 pin firewire cable? That is the ONLY thing you can use. No USB cables or anything else * Are you using a compatible camera? Still cameras that take movies are NOT a DV camera * How new is the cable? If it is pretty old or you have kinked, it you may need another one * Is the camera in DV mode? It should be. (Usually in the menu options somewhere) * Have read ALL of Apples help topics on this If your good with all the above: 1. Close iMovie 2. Delete all iMovie plist files for iMovie located in Home/Library/Preferences 3. Plug the camera in to the wall (electricity) 4. Make sure you have a good firewire cable and plug it in to the Mac from the camera 5. Turn off your camera 6. Reset your pram 7. When the Mac is booting, power on the camera 8. Start iMovie Sony camcorder special fixs: 1. Turn your camcorder to Play mode. 2. Press menu button (or relevant touch-screen button) 3. Click the 'ETC' item and then to CONTROL. 4.

Click the 'ETC' item and choose 'VIDEO EDIT' if it's there 5. Click 'VIDEO EDIT' and 'MARK 1 IN' may appear 6.

The camera and Mac can't decide which device is giving the FireWire instructions, and which is supposed to be receiving and acting on them. Using this sequence (above) lets the camera receive instructions from iMovie.

I am assuming you meant your video (not just pictures) - you need a firewire cable - I have same camera - I use a firewire cable (4pins on each end) and connect to my IBM Laptop with Vista - vista does everything else to capture.
If you need to transfer photographs from the flash memory card -- I suggest the best way is to remove the flash memory card and use a USB flash card reader that you can hook up to your computer.
You may be able to do these otherways by installing the Sony software that comes with this camera - or can be downloaded from Sony website.

When it felt down, is it powered on? Is it running in recording mode? If yes, maybe a flat ribbon cable had been plugged out, causing a short circuit and blown one of onboard microfuse (4) due to contact on components board .
If the camera was powered off, the same thing happen but the fuse may be not blown if ribbon cable have not touch components on printed board. I suspect the ribbon cable come from optics.
Anyway, the best thing to do is to have the service manual in hand. I bought it on internet in PDF format. This model of camera is not so hard to disassemble. The service manual cost me 10$ USD.
Reply-me if you want.
