Charging the battery on Jazz HDV178 digital camcorder

I recently purchased the Jazz HDV178 camcorder, I have placed the battery in the camera and everything works Ok but it does not indicate in the instruction manual anything about recharging of the battery?? Can you please provide information The Jazz camera didn't come with an AC charging cable, nor is there a power input on the camera body. How are you supposed to charge this LI Ion battery? None of the camera/electronics stores were able to help me.

    I bought an NP60 battery charger through ebay. Ordered from a Hong Kong dealer, and it came with 2 batteries and free shipping, for around $20.
    The batteries work just fine.
    I'm now happy with the camera.

Wotn charge or turn on

Consult the camera manual and find out if this camera has a re-set button.
If so, follow the directions in the manul to re-set.
If not, a trained tech is the next stop.

BTW: Is the battery charged?

My jazz hdv178 hdmi wont show picture or record and wont charge what should i do

it will not charge with a USB cable
the company that made them went out of business.
therefore there is no support or chance to get parts
i went to a ebay store called suntek and bought a charger, 2 batteries for less than $7
and they all work
just go to the suntek store and look for a np 60 type charger.
this is the battery type and it will work.

I lost the cable to charge my Jazz HDV178 digital camcorder, ned to replace. Where to buy?

Hello there:
If you contact the manufacture of the device they probably will be able to help you locate the cord.
Also radioshack or best buy or a reputable electronics dealer should also be able to help you get what you need. ok?
hope this helps you out some..
