You probably did not check to see what the tag says (Under the camera) as to what is the "input" voltage. Your car charger probably loaded it with too high a voltage and you burned it out. You have voided all the warrantees, and have probably smoked permanently the battery pack, and any circuits involved. You have a pemanently destroyed camera. Tough luck, but dumb for not buying the proper charger from the company.

I have a JVC Everio GZ-HM200BU. When I open the aperture it no longer starts up. If I connect the power works. Suggestions?

Possible that the battery is bad as it does not have the voltage and current to switch on. So use a multimeter to check the charge on the battery. if the charge is low then you must replace, other wise it can also be related to a fault on the charging control circuit as it fails to connect the battery .

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Ro record, and no image in the screen on the camera JVC GZ-MG50E

I answered same problem like you have now. Just in case you don't find it. I hope you are familiar with these things technically. Open the set up-to where the lens can be accessed, remove the iris unit and clean those two curtain(shutter), for sure it's stucked up. You san test it by moving it open manually and it must close when released. To clean, you have to remove these curtain out from the assy. Spray with head cleaning agent or any alcohol base cleaner and dry.Test iris unit first to make sure its ok before assembling. Good Luck

Powering camcorder with a Cigarette lighter connection

John, if you need to do that you need to get a voltage converter with a wide input range like (10 to 16volts) and an output voltage of 7.5volts which the camcorder requires.

You can even make one if your are an electronics buff. Let me know if you need any help on that.
