I have a PV-IQ404 Panasonic Palmcorder that the power pack has been lost from. Can this be replaced?

By power pack do you mean the actual battery or the charger unit that plugs into the wall to charge or power your Palmcorder? Either way, bot are available on Ebay as universal units and you should make sure the charger or battery pack is for or a 6 volt capacity. Many chargers for these Palmcorders are labeled as VHS-C / 8MM, that should work with your camera. Universal battery packs are made reversable, meaning that you can flip the battery to accomodate several other camcorder models. I've replaced my batteries and charger for my Panasonic Palmcorder from Ebay.

Handycam not holding charge even with new battery.

Sometimes the batteries will build up a memory if they are only used for short periods of time and never used to the point of going completely dead, so possibly getting a new battery online. B&H photo is a pretty good site.
I know some chargers have an output to the cameras battery connector that powers the camera, and if that is plugged into the charger it will not charge the battery simultaneously.
If the camera is working when plugged into the power source it usually turns out to be a battery problem. Sadly the only choice it to buy a new battery.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

A weird problem has appeared over the past month or so. I power off the camera, and if it is picked up or is moved (sometimes even the slightest movement) and it powers on! What's up with that!?! I have...

The only thing I can think to do would be to turn on the camera and access your settings. Probably check under your power settings or something comparable to it and make sure there is no setting turned on that would allow the camera to turn on with motion.

Testing a video cam battery's ability to charge

The chargers are usually pretty reliable. You could check it with a voltmeter. I've never replaced one that someone hadn;t dropped or damaged. They just keep woring.

Usually it is the battery. If it had less and less usefull life before it stopped then it definitly is the battery then. If it is more than a few years old it would also indicate the battery.
