Question about Canon Optura 500 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
The Cam just shut off. It won't take battery charge. The Charge light blinks as it is...but it doesn't. Also, will not work with the power cord since it shut off. HELP!!!!
Were the battery goes there is a cover with a silver screw holding it on. There is a flex behind it that sometimes comes loose and causes the problem you have described. Remove the screw and cover and push on the part behind the cover. I work at canon and when we get a model like yours that usually is he problem.

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.
