are you trying to charge the battery while on the camcorder??? does the camcorder work when you plug the camcorder into the charger?? If the battery fails to charge while its on the charger it can only be the charger but most likly the battery. If the camcorders dead it could be the dreaded pana cap think thT HAPPENS TO MOST CAMCORDERS AFTER A LITTLE AGE. good luck

Well if it's new, then I would take it back to the store from where you bought it. It will be under warranty so, if something is wrong you should be able to get it swapped out with a working one.

I had the same problem while charging the camera with the cradle. I tried charging directly with the camera and it looks good. Problem seems to come from the cradle itself. Phil

Camer will not power on


If your battery does not seem to charge, then you need to carry out some tests on the device, the battery and the charger. First you insert the battery into another cam corder then you try to charge, if it charges, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Then i will advice you take the charger and try to charge another device to see if it will work, if it works, then it means the charger is alright but if it does not then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.
Finally, test the camcorder by plugging a well tested charger and battery into it and trying to charge it, if it does not charge then the problem is from the camcorder.

Canon Vixia HF M41 doesn't charge battery - red light flashing rapidly


If you don't use the battery for a long period of time even a new battery may become dead. You can try a new battery. If it still doesn't work then the problem is with the charging IC. u can also try a desktop charger instead of direct charger.

I just bought my 11 year old an ultra hd 2 hr flip video, we cannot even get it to power on, any suggestions?


You need to first Charge your camcorder battery pack.(mine had to charge over night) the first time.  Plug the little arm that extends from the camera into a USB 2 port on your computer and make sure your computer stays ON during the charging, otherwise the camcorder will not charge.

A red light will come on during charge and goes off when charged. If it does not come while plugged in try a different USB port.  Screen should light up temporarily and Red light showing charging on front of camcorder.

 

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE THE ABOVE, and are having the problem, pull the battery pack out and reseat it back in there again.  maybe connection not good.  OH, and I think mine had plastic covering the metal connections you may want to check that too -remove if so----- BUT the entire white plastic around the batteries STAYS IN PLACE do not remove that. 

 

If that still doesn't work I would try regular AA batteries in it if in fact you have The FLIP ULTRA HD it will take regular batteries too.    IF they work - then maybe you got a defective Rechargeable Battery pack and should contact Flip Video at   http://www.theflip.com/en-us/

I went to charge my canon FS100 camcorder than went to turn it on and it not working now what can be the problem?


have the same prob this morning, check the charging unit for the serial no. (will begin with CA) mine is CA590E, the 590 is a known problem to cannon, it will either discharge the battery pack (pray this is the fault) or it will internally damage the camcorder. mine is only 18 months old used a max of maybe 10 times. I will reply again this afternoon when i've tried a new battery charger, just waiting for my cannon dealer to open.

Brand new Flip Ultra HD. Giving error "Check Battery Pack Charging paused" after 30 seconds of plugging into the USB port of my computer. This USB port DOES support high power.


check the contacts on the bottom of the pack. for some reason, the plastic sheathing covers the positve contact of one of the batteries. i took an xacto knife and cut a small hole to expose that end. after that, voila, no more charging problem. i woke up to a full charge this morning!!!

Flip ultra hd not charging


I had the same problem, but it seemed to be a bit more sporadic. I'd occasionally get the "Charging Paused - Check Battery Pack" error. The battery pack itself looks a bit strange, since the white plastic covers the bottom, right side and it seems that there is no possible way for the battery to make contact with the camera. However, I saw the following suggestion on another site (which the poster claimed came from Flip technical support), and this technique worked for me:

1) remove the battery pack from the camcorder
2) connect the camcorder to a powered USB port on your computer
3) when the "Connected" indicator comes on, insert the battery pack into the camcorder
4) safe eject your camcorder from your computer
5) reconnect your camcorder to your computer
6) the battery pack should now begin to charge within the camcorder

JVC Camcorder - used wrong power lead to charge battery


They sell external battery chargers for these for around 10 bucks at Amazon. Just pop the battery in the charger. Beware the battery itself can be worn down or dead. It also has protection circuits right inside the battery that can be blown (maybe a small fuse too). A new high capacity battery (3 times the recording time) is also at Amazon for around $25.

Battery pack use


I have a similar problem. My MV650i works from the mains power but not from the battery even though I have tried new battery packs.

Sharp Camcorder VL-NZ100E battery doesn't seem to charge


2.7 volts is too low. Usually camcorders use battery at least 6 volts. Problems with rechargeables especially NiCds and NiMH, a cell will be shorted. for 6 volts pack, there are 5 cells in series (5 pcs x 1.2 volts with load , 1.35 no load). If you are measuring only 2.7 volts, it is highly possible that 3 cells are dead. As for the charger, if the same charger is used to power the camcorder and you said the the camcorder operates using the adaptor, this means that the charger is OK. You can ZAP the battery back to life but I will not recommend. It can be dangerous. If you can buy the battery, I suggest you do it since the old battery, even when zapped, will not provide enough juice anymore.
