Re: my handycam remains on
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.
a 6ya Expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
It should boot when connected directly to the power outlet through the laptop adaptor. If it is not boot, then the adaptor might not be supplying the needed power to boot it up.
If it is possible, try to isolate the issue. Charge your new battery using another laptop. Then plug it in your laptop to see if it works. If it will work, then it is the AC adaptor of your laptop that is defective. If the charged battery still won't make the laptop boot, then there is something wrong with your laptop hardware. If could be a motherboard issue of your laptop.
You can used the USB cable to charged the camera, But some of the M863 camera will not take charged usign the USB cable., I strongy suggest used the AC adaptor just make sure the AC adaptor is 5V ac adaptor it will only charged using the 5V adaptor., About the flashing green it indicates camera is charging just wait for the solid green light it means it fully charged
You may purchased also a special charger for your battery(KLIC-7001)- cahrer model is K8600-C. i think the price of this charger is around $29.00
Both batteries could be dead. But if you bought a new battery, it's unlikely. I don't know what green light you see, but if it's on the power adapter, it just means it's turned on--not that it is charging. Two possibilities: Your power adapter is bad or the motherboard is bad. Because you say the computer works if plugged in, then you have ruled out the adapter. You should be checking/cleaning the battery contacts and if all else fails, going for a new motherboard.
Remove the battery insert your AC adaptor turn on your DVD CAM if it work fine reinstall the battery set CAM to off position the amber light should be on to indicate battery is charging
You got that msg depend what function you use if the CAM calculated the battery not enough to run or finish this task it display that msg for you to use AC adaptor to ensure no power corrupted such in formating the disc
Some time system control is faulty even you use AC adaptor it still display this msg I hope that is not in your case
Let me kown how you go with this problem
I've have seen a number of different batteries do this, and I recommend what is called 're-conditioning the batteries. Do this by running the battery completely down to 0%. Then do a complete re-charge of the battery to 100% (if possible). If it charges to 100%, run it completely to 0% again and then recharge it. If it does not charge to 100%, then you may have a faulty or old battery which will need to be replaced. The AC adaptor and battery have circuitry in them and might be retaining incorrect info in them. They can be reset by unplugging them for a few minutes and then plugging them back in. There might be a specific sequence of what to unplug and when, in order to reset this circuitry. Try a couple of them. (ie. Battery, AC adaptor in to battery, AC adaptor into the wall, etc.)
Sounds like your battery is dead.
1. Please note that when charging from your USB cable to the computer, full charging time will take up to 7 hours. If you are charging using your own DC car charger or AC wall adaptor,
charging time will be much less and will take up to 3 hours.
2. Indicator light will turn green when charging is complete.
