Check camera charger output voltage with multimeter. If there is no problem with charger; charge camera battery to full charge. As a next step; check your camera battery voltage with multimeter. If battery is dead, replace battery with new one.
· Fully charge the Sony digital Handycam. If the camera is
not powering on or shutting down during the middle of a shoot, it is due to the
battery. If the battery is unable to hold a charge (this occurs after a few
years of use) you must replace the lithium-ion batter.
Press the "Menu" button if no audio is recording
on the video camera. Choose the "Record" feature, then select
"Audio." Oftentimes the audio comes (or is accidentally turned) off. Select
the "On" option and exit out of the menu. Now all future recordings
capture audio in addition to video.
Delete unwanted video files if your hard drive is full. When
the internal hard drive is full you receive an error message stating the
camcorder is unable to capture more footage. Bring up the "View"
option on the camera, then select a video file you no longer want and choose
Turn off the video camera and remove the battery. Wait a
few minutes before inserting the battery back into the camera. If the menu or
any other internal hardware on the computer is malfunctioning performing this
reset corrects the problem.
Upload the video content from your camera to a computer
via FireWire cable instead of USB. When using USB the quality is downgraded as
it is unable to support the higher data stream required to upload videos. If
you don't have a FireWire port on the computer (it is similar in size to a USB
connection, but one size is curved and a "Y" icon is printed next to
it) you will have to use the USB connection.
I have the same camera. It sounds to me that there is a fault with the camera itself and not the battery. You might be better sending Canon an email and asking them. My battery lasts forever so I would think if you already purchased another battery you've eliminated that problem. It might be the contacts inside the camera that are not accepting the full charge. Does the camera battery on screen show that it's full after you've charged it? Maybe trying charging it overnight and then trying it out the next day.
Assuming that your new battery is the correct type for the camera and that it is fresh/fully charged, your problem may be due tocorrosion on the
battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the
batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
kindly leave the battery for long duration in charging position let the red light blink and then see after like 16 hours or 24 hours if it works and charge otherwise change the battery with the same specs , and next time when u leave battery for long duration likea month or weeks charge it to full or half so it can hold some power to re charge again , ur battery is in Coma state nearly dead so it might come back or not
First remove the SD card in case it is defective itself causing the camera to act funny. Next, your symptoms are indicative of a bad, not fully charged, or intermittent battery contact with camera's contacts.
Clean batt contacts using a clean pencil erasure.
If this doesn't work, measure a fully charged battery's voltage on the battery pos(+) and neg(-) terminals. It should be 4VDC. If less than 3.8, I would be suspicious it is not taking a full charge.
New batteries on ebay are cheap, and would not be a loss since you can always use backup batteries if you get another TZ camera. Or, you could just sell your camera to a repairman in an ebay auction, keeping your batteries and accessories, and buying a used working one with accessories cheap.
