I have a sony hdv 1080i camcorder. it works on mains power but will not work from a fully charged battery. Can anyone help suggest a solution?

Are these new batteries or old ones? If they are old it is possible that they will show as full but not have enough current to operate the device. If the batteries are over three years old or have been charged more that 300 times that is a distinct possibility. Also check the battery contacts on the device to make sure that they are not dirty. Clean with a pencil eraser.

DCR-TRV30 Internal clock battery is end of life. It will not charge overnight or hold date/time set information between main battery changes. There is no replacement information in the user manual. Where...

This small back-up battery on my Sony is under the main big power battery, it is like a large screw under the main power pack, I just turn that screw and the little round lid comes off to get to the little silver flat back-up one.
They are readily available from most good camera shops like Jesops for around £12 to £15 each.

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 not charging

Since the camcorder will power up and work with the charger connected, it sounds like the battery has died and will no longer hold a charge.

DZHS500A will not turn on

Check for:
  • Proper seating of the battery
  • charged battery (try to run it off of AC power directly)
  • bent battery contacts or corrosion of the contacts (you can clean them with a clean dry pencil eraser)

Battery pack use

I have a similar problem. My MV650i works from the mains power but not from the battery even though I have tried new battery packs.

JVC EVERIO HYBRID GZ-MG330 Battery error?

I bought a replacement data battery BN-VF-808U from Digicowfish through (?made by PomerPower).
It fits nciely to my JVC Everio GZ-MG330 which uses a BN-VF808U data battery. However, JVC gives a screen message:Communicating Error.
Now I have solved my Communication Error by using a jumper cable provided with the replacement battery BN-VF808U to connect the attached replacement battery to the camcorder. There is a DC input socket on the camcorder. There is also a DC input socket on the replacement battery for direct connection.

Sharp Camcorder VL-NZ100E battery doesn't seem to charge

2.7 volts is too low. Usually camcorders use battery at least 6 volts. Problems with rechargeables especially NiCds and NiMH, a cell will be shorted. for 6 volts pack, there are 5 cells in series (5 pcs x 1.2 volts with load , 1.35 no load). If you are measuring only 2.7 volts, it is highly possible that 3 cells are dead. As for the charger, if the same charger is used to power the camcorder and you said the the camcorder operates using the adaptor, this means that the charger is OK. You can ZAP the battery back to life but I will not recommend. It can be dangerous. If you can buy the battery, I suggest you do it since the old battery, even when zapped, will not provide enough juice anymore.
