Question about Video Cameras
I bought a DDV Digilife Camcorder from a bay area-based company at Oracle Open World in San Fran last year. I don't recall the name of the supplier.
Almost immediately I had problems with the battery holding a charge. It will now only take about 5 pix before cutting out. Also the off-button won't work when the battery is charged so it discharges all its power very quickly.
As I don't have the name of the supplier to return it, I'd be grateful for advice on how I can get it repaired/fixed.
Many thanks. Sara
Not sure of which model exactly your using, but you may check out the web address below.
It appears to be a Chines manfactured Brand, unfortunately alot of these units appear to suffer from a substandard charging system that leads towards a problem with the battery.
The good news is that many mobile phone batteries are often suitable replacements for these to swap out with. I'm picking its probably around a 4.8v or similar flat type battery and is charged either via computer USB connection or through independant charger. A local camera shop won't be a good bet, the shipping to china may out weigh the cost of replacement. I would suggest hunting for a custom battery manufacturer that can supply a replacement battery and hopefully a charger to suit! :o)
As for the on off switch, also a common flaw in the designs, any local video camera repair shop should be able to assist with that part of it. Hope this helps.
