Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC42 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
I have a Sony steady shot CCD-TRV52 that we are donating to an area school. We thought that it just needed a new battery but after getting a new battery and charging it the camcorder will work great for about 5 minutes then shut off. Any ideas of what could be wrong with it?
Ok... simple solution that battery is possibly defective or the camera has an issue that causes an excessive draw on the battery. digital camaras eat batteries anyways. when you bought the new battery did you charge it for at least 12 hours before the first use ?
