DXG-301V Power won't stay on

I have had this DXG-301V for for about 1 year and never used it. Now I have tried to use and the power comes on and goes right back off. I have not changed the batteries nor have I inserted a memory card. Do you have to insert card before power will stay on?

Laistrop,

The fact that your camera was not used for a year and assuming the batteries remained in the camera (uncharged?) after that long a period of time, it would be very likely the batteries have deteriorated and may need to be replaced. The first thing to try is charging the batteries if you have not already done so. Plug in the charger and allow at least 12 hours for the batteries to charge. If the camera still will not work, the original batteries have very likey lost their ability to hold a charge and will have to be replaced. To test this, without spending too much money, try inserting 4 Alkaline AA batteries in the camera (observe the battery polarity marked on the flip-top battery cover). If the camera works, you should replace the batteries with fresh NiMh rechargeable batteries and charge them before you attempt to use the camera. Allow at least 12 hours for the initial charge unless the battery manufacturer suggests otherwise. I would not recommend using any form of "rapid" or "quick" charge rechargeable battery. If you do, you will be paying extra for a convenience you will not use, unless you plan to use an external quick charger, since the camera is not equipped to support rapid battery charging.

SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

It doesn't. The DXG-301V uses standard AA batteries, either disposable or rechargeable. If you choose to use rechargeable batteries, you must charge them outside the camera using a separate charger.

DXG-506V LCD comes on Blank White Screen


I had the same problem ...I bought a new 2 GB SD card put it in the camera and it worked fine.

It may have had something to do with formatting ..I tried to format the other card wiyh my computer when the video camera would stay on.
I tried to reset the camera that didn't work either.
The new SD Card did work.
