Question about Samsung SC-D23 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

What is the voltage, current, and polarity of the power supply for the SC-D23?

I bought a used Samsung SC-D23, no power supply. Although the power connector looks like it takes a strange rectangular connector, it appears that a standard barrel plug will fit it. However, I am unable to find any reference on the web or in the PDF manual that tells the voltage, current rating, or polarity of the plug. Could someone with one of these look at your power adapter and read these things from it? Thanks, Steve PS Yes, I know I can order a power supply from Samsung but I have loads of power supplies here. And I can't just buy a battery charger, since external power must be connected to use the Firewire port.

You should use the original Samsung supply since it is a switching power supply capable of supplying the needed current to operate the onboard charging circuit. Many customers have tried to go with generic supplies and it opens the inline chemical fuse due to the unit drawing heavy current during battery charging. Hope this helps.

Can not capture video or picture

A law suit was filed against Samsung for the SC models including your D23. in accordance with the class action settlement, Samsung has agreed to repair or replace the effected models for zero cost including shipping and insurance. visit this website or call Samsung repair @ there 1-800 number. Samsung also agreed to refund your money if you paid to have the unit fixed yourself or if you purchaced another camcorder to replace the faulty samsung. I called and they e-mailed me a UPS label to print out and shipping costed nothing. takes about two weeks for the repair and then it will be delivered @ your door like new:)
