Remove the battery insert your AC adaptor turn on your DVD CAM if it work fine reinstall the battery set CAM to off position the amber light should be on to indicate battery is charging
You got that msg depend what function you use if the CAM calculated the battery not enough to run or finish this task it display that msg for you to use AC adaptor to ensure no power corrupted such in formating the disc

1. Turn off the Handycam
2. Remove the battery from the Handycam.
3. Remove the AC Power Adapter from the Handycam.
4. Move the Handycam power switch to the ON position.
Note: Leave the switch in the ON position for at least 15 seconds.
5. Move the Handycam power switch to the OFF position.
6. Connect the AC Power Adapter to the Handycam.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
