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

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable...


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.

Where is the date battrry ??????????????????????


I don't know. The manual doesn't say or show you. However, you shouldn't need to change this battery. It is rechargable, and automatically recharges when the main battery is connected or when the battery charger is connected. The manual says that it will discharge (forgetting the date, etc,) after about three months when the camera is not used, so you would have to set the date again, but that doesn't mean you need to change the battery.

On my cannon digital video camcorder ( model MV730i) i am trying to play back some footage i have taken but on the view finder (and also on my computer when i transfer footage over) the picture is coming...


Possibly dirty head and/or dirty tape.Maybe even wear-out tape,too.
But the worst scenario would be faulty or damaged head,which would be not worth repair it.

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.

About transfering video from the tape into PC


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}Yes, it is something to do with Firewire. I managed to dothis with my Canon MV750i so I know it can be done!

You are correct; the USB cable only transfers pictures from the SD card. To transfer video from your camcorder to a computer you need to use a Firewirecable (also known as IEEE 1394), and you need to have a socket on your computerto plug the Firewire cable into. Macs already have a socket built in butgenerally with PCs you will need to install (or get someone to install for you)a special card with the Firewire socket on it.

I can't explain the whole procedure here but you can getstarted by looking at the following articles on the Canon website. Thefirst one explains what sort of connections can be made on different Canoncamcorders (including the MV730i) and what you can do with them:
http://www.canon.co.nz/products/digital_video_cameras/home/mv730i.aspx

The second briefly explains what hardware and software youwill need, how it goes together, how to make DVDs and so on:

Unfortunately there is no quick, simple answer but I hope thispoints you in the right direction!

well the camera has USB interface and a memory card, you may either:

1. connect your camera to your computer using the USB cable it came with.

*once you do this your computer may require you to install a driver (you have this on the camera's CD) but in most cases all you have to do is wait, then once it says that the device is ready to use, click "my computer" and you will see a "Canon" icon as a removable disk, double click on it and you will see the still images and videos you have captured.

2. you may also use a card reader (for SD) to avoid going through the driver installation process. same way, connect it to your PC, wait till it confirms it is good to go, then click go to my computer to access the (SD) memory card.

good luck

Power Failure


"I am an electronics engineer with over 40 years experience on precision electronic systems, and am more than capable of investigating faults like this, however I need info on how to access the camera internals as I do not want to disturb the cassette alignment." i think you can do the job without disturbing any alignment. open the camera. try locating the power section where the battery wires are going. examining minutly you may locate 3 to 4 fuses on the board. if you find any or few of them open ......you have done the job.
