Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder
I have a Canon DC210 and my batteries won't charge. i thought the old battery might have a charing problem but took it to a battery place and they charged it no worries and I came home and viewed what was on the camcord and could operate it until the battery went flat once again. So then I thiought that it was my charger and I bought a new charger for the unit but the charger won't charge either can i be doing something wrong or do you think their is something with the unit. i love my camcord and it is only just over a year old. What can i do?
I have a friend who brought me his camera that had exhibied the same problem for over a year. I took it apart and found that the cable going to the charger was a bit loose. Might not be for the faint of heart, but it does work now.
First you need to take the two dark grey panels that go around the outside of the camera. Next you will have access to the rounded cover that goes above the lens. Once that is off you will be able to remove the silver cover on the left side of the camera, underneath which there are a couple of ribbon cables that go from a board inside the camera to the battery terminals and the lcd screen. Just make sure the cable is pushed in good and reassemble. There are about 18 screws you have to remove that range from tiny to tinier to tiniest, so keep track of what you are doing and good luck!

Clean the contacts on the battery and the charger with a pencil eraser. Make sure you are inserting the batteries correctly, with the battery contacts touching the charger's contacts.
