Re: no power

Yes, there is a fuse and is a common failure noted with your symptoms as stated. There may actually be 2 fuses blown. They are board surface mounted devices and are about the size of a pin head, a definite expert level repair situation. Good luck, magic seadog

I have plugged the camcorder into the tv but,not sure if battery is dead after recharging it as the camcorder light is on red and no picture on tvor camcorder. Please can you advise?

if you have the original charger/adapter connect it and check, if it works with, then the fault should be with the battery, so replace it. if not working with charger directly then there may be problem inside the cam, it must open and check many models comes with tiny fuse on the mother board if it is blown, replace it.

Handycam not holding charge even with new battery.

Sometimes the batteries will build up a memory if they are only used for short periods of time and never used to the point of going completely dead, so possibly getting a new battery online. B&H photo is a pretty good site.
I know some chargers have an output to the cameras battery connector that powers the camera, and if that is plugged into the charger it will not charge the battery simultaneously.
If the camera is working when plugged into the power source it usually turns out to be a battery problem. Sadly the only choice it to buy a new battery.

When I connect the battery charger to the camcorder it doesnt even even show that I have the battery charger hooked up nor does it charge the camera. Could that be a problem with the camera or the charger?

I got hold of Canon support. I had the same problem. Got a new battery, fully charged and would not run the unit. Canon told me to do a system reset. pull out main battery and aux battery (bottom of unit) and to power switch to aux for 90 seconds. the put batteries back and it should work. Hope this helps.

I have a Sny dcr-hc48 camcorder which stopped working some time back. this week i had my friend who came with the same camcorder and i swapped in his battery and my camcorder started working. but if i...

First: put your battery in your friends camcorder and use ur friends charger to charge the battery.
Then put your battery back into your camcorder to see if it works.

If the battery works then this eliminates the battery as a problem.

Next plug your charger into your friends camcorder to see if it will power the camcorder without battery, if this works then the problem will most likley be the connector in your camcorder.

If this does not work then the problem will be the plug or the charger.

Next plug your friends charger into your camcorder if it does not work this will verify that the problem is the connector on your camcorder

DCR-SR42 Camcorder does not power up

I think AC power charger of your camera got defective first and later on battery lost its charge so no power for camera now to power up.
Try to borrow same charged battery from friend. neighbors etc and test your camera.
If camera power up, it is sure that charger has gone and you need new one.
let me know in that case to guide you further.

Disk finalization error

dont know if youve found a solution already, but:
you cant finalzie the disc using battery power, you need to use the ac adaptor. This is something you should have got with the camcorder. its basically the charger plus another cable. so, plug in the charger to the mains as normal. then remove the battery from the camcorder, you'll notice a round hole in the camorder, this is where you plug in the cable i mentioned earlier, the other end of the cable goes into the same size hole found on the battery charger. that's it - you now have power to the camcorder from the mains. switch on the camcorder as normal and finalize the disk.

Panasonic PV-GS19 Mini DV Digital wont turn on

I have about 2 dozen of these that my students use at my school and the power supplies are kept in a locked room only to be used by me. The reason? They get easily damaged. The little metal part that plugs into the back of camera is often the culprit. If the power supply/charger is pugged in and the metal tip at the other end touches anything metallic (keys, metal tripod, etc.), it will short out and render the unit useless. If the amber light doesn't go on on the charger, and you are sure you it properly connected to a power source, then my guess is that it's a damaged power supply. You can purchase a new one online at Panasonic Go to this link and click on the Parts locator link near the bottom of the page.
