SCL860 Hi8 Samsung Camcorder wont turn on or charge

This camera is about 4 years old but in like-new condition and has been very well taken care of. Has not been used for about 2 years though. It will not turn on, even when connected to plugged in adaptor. It will not even indicate a charge when plugged in. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)

I don't know if this will help at all but I have had to push the adapter into the camera further than my initial try before it would start charging. Check to see if you can push it in any further.

Fast tape playback for samsung vp-l770 can't watch at normal speed on camcorder?

Tapes recorded on one camcorder very rarely play back satisfactorily on another machine - you will have to use your old camcorder to view them, or else get them transferred to DVD

My door was open for 2 days and drianed the battery, well for personal reasons I could not fix it till 4 months later. I got it jumped and it ran 10 minutes, we turned it off and on twice, the third time...

Chances are that the battery needs to9 be replaced. What you need to do though is fully charge the battery using a battery charger Jumping will not do that. After charging, have it load tested. If it passes testing then you can use it. If it's more than four years old, I'd just replace it though.

Premature Failure of Canon Powershot A-460 Digital Camara

With all due respect, pasting a copy of your letter of complaint on this site is of no consequence. It is taking up time to try and see if there is a question within it and there is clearly not.
Canon Powershot A-460 is not exactly a top of the range device and two years of service is twice the warranty period.
