I bought an Insignia didgital camcorder ( a mini thing) and can not figure out how to charge the battery. It doesn't charge when I plug the camer into the ac adapter & it didn't come with a battery charge.

    I had the same problem. I ran the battery to low I think, and the charger did not recognize there was a battery to charge. (because it was so low) I went to Ebay. Typed in "Insignia camcorder Battery" Found a Great seller there. Bought a New, Factory Fresh Battery from them. They also had some New Battery chargers. That would charge this battery, outside of the Camcorder. The charger would plug into the wall outlet, and it also come with a cable, we could use to charge it up in the Car! I have been Happy with everything, ever since. It was a Great deal. Now I have two good working batteries, and a handy charger. To keep a Hot spare ready.

CAN I CHARGE MY PANASONIC MINI DV CAMCORDER AND OTHER WAY THAN THE CHARGER ITS SELF


I don't get your question, but there are different ways you can charge it. You can charge the battery alone against the wall, leave it in the camcorder and charge it via computer, wall, or car.

Canon ZR200 mini DV Digital camcorder power is not coming.


First thing, clean your battery contacts, both on the battery, and on the camcorder. Make sure the battery is charged fully (measure it if you have a voltmeter). Make sure your power adapter is putting out voltage (again, measure it if you can) Try a spare battery, if you have one, to make sure the first one isn't just dead. Other than those things, you could have a faulty or broken power switch on the unit. That's about all I can think of offhand.

Camcorder will not turn on without being plugged


If the camera is turning on and is able to be used normally while plugged in to an AC wall pack, but not using the battery, there is probably a problem with either the battery or the internal power switch to go from AC to battery.

Check the battery with a voltmeter to insure you have a fully charged battery. It would also be a good idea to use the voltmeter on the camcorders power tabs to make sure the camcorder is passing the correct voltage to the battery. The amount of volts should match the volts on the battery.

If it's a battery issue, batteries plus has a replacement for this camcorder. If not, it's a switch within the camera (software most likely) and there's not much you can do other that try to reload the camcorders firmware if it is available fromt eh Insignia-Products web site.

Hope this helps!

I just bought an insignia ns-dcchb09 on ebay and it had a battery in it that wasnt rechargeable and it isnt working is there a specific battery that goes to this model?


Yes there is a specific battery that works with these camcorders that was supplied by the manufacturer. No replacement battery was available for these units either.

If the seller sent you the wrong battery in the unit, the seller is liable.

Hope this helps!

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.

It sounds like you may have a faulty battery or charger.

Take the extra battery and whatever you used to charge it (camcorder or battery charger) back to the shop where you bought it and get them to help you figure out what's wrong with their product. Your purchase is still under warranty and you deserve to have a product that works.
