MV730i video camera not used for 6 months. How do I recharge the battery? Will connecting the camera to the Canon mains adaptor automatically charge the battery? Do I leave the camera in the off position while doing this?

Connect your AC adaptor into CAM and set to off position and make sure the amber light will on to indicate the system is charging OK

Sounds like corrosion on the battery contacts. I have seen battery contacts with a thin, transparent coating that came from leaking rechargeable batteries- doesn't look like the usual green crud, but it stops electricity from getting through. Try giving the contacts a scrape- you will need a long thin screwdriver or something of the sort.

I wonder how good your rechargeable batteries are-even these lose their ability to recharge fully after a while. Try some non rechargeable good quality batteries in it and see if it then works properly.

Problem of rechargable battery


The best way to tell if it is a battery problem would be to charge them fully then use the camera and see how long they keep working as compared to what their specs are (probably in your camera info). It is also possible that the charger is at fault, which can be tested by measuring the output of the charger with a meter, or check to make sure the charger is the proper one for those batteries ("quick" chargers may need special batteries, etc.). If your camera can use alkaline batteries of the same type, try new ones and see if it still says "low" -- if so then it could be the camera. Hope this helps. If not, check your camera website and try troubleshooting there.

Losing power rapidly...


The only thing I can suggest is that the metal connections on your camera have corroded due to the long life of your camera. I had a similar problem where any batteries I used would not work, regardless of what kind of battery it was. Turns out I had a nice greenish layer of corrosion on my connections which I sand-papered off. This might be a little tricky if your connectors are way inside of a battery holder, but it can be done nonetheless. Try taping some sandpaper to the flat end of a pencil and clean it out that way. Hope it works.
