Hi,
I don't think the battery would have affected this. I think it is more likely that the main on/off switch is at fault, or the connections to it are shorted. This needs to be checked over first, before going deeper into the control board.

You may have to weigh up how much professional repair is compared to a new unit.
If you decide a new unit is on the cards - then you have nothing to loose in taking it apart and looking for an obvious problem in the switch area. Most of the time it is either dirt, broken plastic, or the small switch discs that are at fault. - all repairable with minimum fuss.

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.

Charging the handycam


Is the charger plugged into mains? If so, check that all the connectors are firmly attached, if you still have a problem, it may be your AC adaptor.

Ac-V15/V16A AC power adaptor


shop on ebay.  I just picked up one the other day for $20.  If you look for an inexpensive (or broken) camcorder you often find it comes with an adaptor and can get it the whole thing for a decent price.
