    I have the same problem and the camera is dead.

    will Insignia replace the battery for free?

  • mtquest Mar 20, 2009

    LED stays red, battery warms up, but the battery doesn't charge up. I pressed the on/off button at the top and I believe it turned off and now of course it won't come on at all either with the battery or without.

    I thought I was blind. Nothing in the manual about charging the battery. I had mine in upside down. The red light must be blinking when charging.

    same problem, had the camera for a while, haven't really used it... battery was charged/fine... went to open it/turn on...nothing. Plug in usb cable and solid red... screen shows green/chimes when plugged in..but then black. Playing with button doesn't do much sometimes I can get the red light on the back to go green...but that's about it.

    Must be something wrong with the battery/camcorder. I've had this problem myself. I've tried several different USB cables and none of them seem to charge the battery.

Make sue the text side of the battery is facing up. Not the pure black side... I was having this problem until I decided to flip the battery around and it worked just fine...

    Make sure the battery is not flipped around. The white text should be on the top looking up at you, and the pure black side should be facing down to the camera.

I spoke to an actual Bestbuy guy and he said if the USB cable is plugged in correctly it will charge the camcorder. If it is not charging there may be something wrong with the camera, battery, or USB cable itself.

I had this same problem. I was charging and charging and nothing was working. Looked it up online and my battery was in upside down. The solid black part of the battery has to be face down. It seems wrong but it works.

SONY DCR200 CAMCORDER turn off when I Opend th LCD but it's working when attached with AC power Cable


More than likely the camera has an internal problem in the power supply section. There is an electronic switching circuit that switches between the battery input and the DC input coming from the AC adapter. Your camera requires professional servicing. One such place is AVRepair.com Home Services Consumer Camcorder Sony

Why wont my nookhd wont charge


If it\'s only two months old it may have a defective charging cable or adapter. If it\'s a new purchase and you can return it. To check to see if it might be the adapter and not the charging cable you have a few cheap ways to test this out.



General charging recommendations.



If you get power leave it on charge at least 3+ hours. This is the minimum time required if the battery is totally drained. If the Nook turns itself on during this process manually turn it off. The battery charges faster and more deeply if it\'s truely powered down. Charging more than 3 hours won\'t hurt it. In fact some manufacturers claim leaving thier products on charge for an additional hour after the charging light glows green is good as it leaves a slightly deeper charge on the battery. Also I believe leaving it alone for that hour allows it to cool the battery. Most manufacturers also recommend tottaly draining the battery at least once a month and then fully recharging it 1+ hours after charging light is green. They claim this helps the battery maintain a healthy charge and extends the battery life. Simply disconnect any charging cables, turn the unit on and just let it set. Don\'t touch it peroid just leave it alone until it turns off because the battery is totally drained. Then just plug it in and leave it. Only if the unit automatically turns itself on do you manually turn it back off.



Well that\'s about in in keeping the battery life and charge at its maximum.



If your AC power adapter has gone south there are only three ways to get around this. 1. Purchase a generic AC to USB adapter. 2. Purchase a genetic DC to USB adapter. Most of these can be cheaply purchased at most drug stores ect.. these days. You can even get DC to USB ones at dollar stores such as Dollar Tree. Good way to maintain your battery if your AC one goes south or you lose house current.



One other way to charge your battery is to plug the USB cable into your computer. Some manufacturers don\'t recommend this as this more often than not doesn\'t fully tank up your battery.



You can also get replacement charging cables at the same place you got the adapters. Places such as Walgreens, or CVS often have these at around five dollars a pop.

Lost the AC Adapter to plug in my Insignia I-PD720 DVD Player


Our parts supplier lists the AC adapter as unavailable, but an alternative may be available. I would recommend calling them at 1-888-237-8289 or carrying the unit in to the place of purchase or an electronic parts store to pursue an alternative.

My hitachi camcorder says I need an AC adapter/charger


Hi Riannasmail,
You need a camcorder to charger DC cable,it looks like a battery with a trailing cable that has a DC plug on the end that plugs into the Hitachi battery charger.If you are in the USA you should be able to buy one for about $8 to $12,if you live in UK you will be ripped off at about £24.
I made my own adaptor and charger system for less than £20,If you need more info please contact me.

My jvc camcorder GZ-MG37U will not charge


Camcorder has charging circuit but it could go defective. The repair would be costly so in this situation, you can purchase stand-along battery charger for around $20 and charge the batteries independently. Make sure all the contacts are cleaned and camcorder is working with direct ac adapter. Good luck -James. for furnter assistance by email, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Power problem


Your battery is probabily uncharged or disconnected. Try taking the battery out and putting it back in. Then charge it (by plugging in the AC adapter) until the green activity light stops flashing. If this does not work, your battery is probabily dead. Did you short it out? Or perhaps it is old. Li-Ion batteries (the kind used in these machines) lose their ability to hold their charge in a few years - even if they're not in use! So, if your battery is 3 or more years old, try considering a new battery.

Power Failure


Check the output from the AC Adapter first. If no good, battery not charging/dead so nothing works. If good, camera needs service - could be anything. There is probably at least one surface mount fuse.
