I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.

SOURCE: Sony DCR-VX1000E batteries
Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries

you can charge the battery through the camera like a cellphone.
plug the USB cable to the ADAPTER then plug it to a wall socket then plug the USB cable connected to the AC power adapter to your camera
the USB cable should have an indicator (RED) if it is already charging and (GREEN) when its done

SOURCE: Battery low
Check the green LED on the charger adapter - could be the fuse blown. Also check green LED on top of device - should be on when charging.
ALso, on the route confirmation screen, it shows the battery level, and if it is charging. Try wiggling the power jack and see if it makes a difference.

more than likely the battery yes !
Acers arnt the best batterys in the world altho overall pretty good machines :-)
Im gonna guess you have been using the laptop almost always with the power lead plugged into the mains ??
everybody does it but they dont realise 1. it wrecks the battery & 2. worst case scenario is it burns/melts the solder connections of the jack plug (the socket where you plug the charger into ur laptop) inside, (where it connects to the board of the machine :-( )
this is a real big job to fix & can easily be avoided by just not using the machine on mains power all the time ! batterys should be 'Conditioned' from time to time for long life & reliability & the easiest way to do this is to fully charge then use the laptop on battery power until it just about shuts itself off due to low battery !! fully charge again (whilst not using it/switched off) & do the same again ! do this about 4/5 times every other month (or more frequently if u use it a lot??) & u will get maximum reliability from ur battery pack :-)
if the battery is goosed (which i would put my money on) take it off & record the Model Number of the battery (which will be on a sticker on the underside) & if funds allow buy a decent one (false economy the cheap ones as they dont last long)
When looking for a new battery (if using the 'bay' shop??) make sure the Model numbers match & dont search for a battery using just the model of ur laptop as sumtimes other model number batteries (from other machines) will fit but wont give the correct perfomance depending on the spec of the machine you have ??
hope this helps :-)
