This is a problem on dc 230s. Were the battery connects to the camera look at the terminals. They should stick out but yours might be pushed in, causing the problem you are describing. The way to fix it is by removing the cover and pushing the terminals back out. It is a easy fix, if you want to fix it yourself let me know and I will tell you how to do it. I work at one of canons return centers and have fixed many of these.

This camera is the MOST frustrating piece of "technology" ever. I've tried everything to fix this issue. Replacing the battery, new firmware, etc. NEVER again will i buy any product from Creative. That's how much trouble this camcorder has given me. Solution=Throw it away and buy a GoPro.

It is probably not worth fixing. You can likely get a new camera for less than your repair cost. If you want to watch your old tapes there are many places that will convert them to DVD.

Flip Mino HD red light won't turn off after charging. Camera won't do anything at all. What do I do?


return it for a refund! i bought one, it did the same as yours. i returned it and bought the 2nd one. It did the same as the first one (and the same as yours.)

It is a piece of junk. Supposedly the previous Flips were good, unfortunately, I didn't have the previous models so my experiences only are bad.

Yes it is the dc socket that you will use to charge your battery . It charges right on the camcorder itself with your ac adaptor . make sure the camcorder is in off postion for it to charge.

Please make sure that charger is OK and you can confirm charger by attaching it to any other similar Sony camera or attache another charger with camera.
Usually charger gets defective and user thinks that camera is fried.

My canon zr400 wont turn on


ITs most likely a fuse, unfortunately you can change it or its a son of a gun to change. You can check by removing the motherboard, locate the fuse, they are micro fuses, it either has the letter H or K etched on it, there could be anywhere from 1-5 of those fuses. Check for continuity if that s the problem than replace it, if you cant find a replacement micro fuse than solder over the fuse for continuity...that should make the camcorder power on, but beware once you solder over the fuse- there will be no more current protection for the camcorder. If the fuse is not the problem than it could be a loose circuit...

Can a new battery destroy a camcorder?


It sure looks like it did some damage. At least you've got a work around. If the guy didn't say the battery would work in your camera, it's hard to see how he's at fault. It appears that he did live up to his end of the bargain. Perhaps you should have looked at the battery specs to see what it works with? Even if he's at fault, he probably would owe you only the current value of your camera rather than a new one.
