Question about Canon Elura 60 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Camera will not charge

Out of the blue, the other day. the camera decided to just stop charging. the camera is so dead it wont even turn on anymore. The little light doesnt come on when we plug it in either. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm hoping its just an issue with the charger or with the battery and not something internal on the camera.

Re: Camera will not charge

Not a Solution: however my elura 60 did the same thing, for a while I was having the "photo button/zoom button" not working problem then out of nowhere the camera just never turned back on. It does not get power from either the battert or the charger. This it seem is a manufacturer defect. Gonna call cannon and complain!

Re: Camera will not charge

If you know someone who has electrical testing equipment, they can test the charger to see if it is still putting out a charge. I doubt it is the battery because you said the charge light doesn't light when the unit is plugged in. Other than that, sounds like a bad component inside. Get it checked by a pro because you can get zapped or ruin something by poking around inside if you don't know what you are doing.

My memorex mcc228rsblk camcorder wont charge. when i put it my computer to charge and when it charges up i unplug it from the usb but it wont come on

It is possible your battery is dead, or the camera is no longer able to charge from the battery.
Are you able to verify that the battery has a charge when unplugged?

It wont turn on i even bought a new batery and still nothing what could it be?

Is your new battery charged? You may need to place it in the charger or hook the camera to the AC power and leave it overnight. If you have a charging cradle try to charge the battery that way. Sometimes that arrive dead.

My battery doesn't charge anymore Canon DC50

It sounds like your battery is shot and needs to be replaced. Before you spend any money on it though, I recommend that you take your camcorder and that battery to a camera shop and have them test the battery and the camera's recharging system.

My canon fs 100 doesn't turn on

I took the camera to the representative and we started various tests such as:
Tried My battery in OTHER camera .... not working
Tried OTHER battery in MY camera .... works
Tried charging MY battery in OTHER Camera .... works
Tried MY battery in MY camera and charged .... worked
Bottom end is that my charger is not working although it heats when "charging".

Now i will look at the pins in the charger to see if they are working or not.

Whatever the case .... getting a new charger.

Battery wont charge

This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!

Won't turn off

the On/Off/VTR Switch doesn't function anymore and the camera is a month old. Basically anytime the battery is in the camera or the camera is plugged in, it remains 'On'.

That means you can't charge batteries or use VTR mode, or turn the thing off. Way to go on this one Sony.
