    Camera has a few minutes of battery remaining, but as soon as I connect adaptor it switches off and remains off with no charging up. It's the same with both new and old adaptors.

My sony handycam DCR-TRV340E is not charging at all, dont know if its to do with the battery or the AC power adaptor


First, check that the camera switch is in the off (charging) position.
If this is OK, Check the battery output connections for voltage: use a multimeter.
To check the charger, put a load resistor across the output terminals (about 1000 ti 2000 ohms) and again, using a multimeter, check there is a charging voltage. Alternatively, if the camera operates OK with the charger attached and switched on the charger is OK, AND, the problem is then in the charging circuit from camera to battery. If the battery checks OK as in the beginning, then you will need a Sony repair man who needs to know all the results from your testing above.

You do not need a battery to run the camcorder off ac power supply. It is one or the other. The only time that both will be used is when you are charging the battery on the camcorder with the power off.

Hope this helps.

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.

Cameras can't upload if low on power. Charge batteries or plug in the ac adaptor to an outlet and try again.

What is the ac adaptorfor sdr-h40


It's the little black box that's got "Panasonic AC Adaptor" written on it. It looks a little like a power brick, but you can put a battery into there. (You also need to plug in the DC power cord, which goes into the same compartment on the camera as the battery does. It looks like a battery with a cord.) Hope this helps.

Can you plug the camcorder into the wall via the provided dc cable and your ac adaptor? If so your battery terminal cound have gotten bent, or a fuse link could have opened up inside. check above test first.
