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.
Try resetting the Camcorder to the factory settings by pressing the reset button. If the issue persists, try power resetting the camcorder. To power reset, remove the battery of the Camcorder and press and hold the power button for 30 second(or turn the Power switch to ON position for 30 seconds) and reinsert the battery after one minute and check the operation. If the issue still persists, the service is required.
This is a simple case of the Bat going dead, it does look from what I read that the Sony batteries do not seem to stand up long these days, I am hearing of this daily on the Mini Cameras, where my old faithful 8mm camera bat is 8 years old and as good as new.
Ha, you are so right, if you are on Windows Vista/or the new 7 then your Sony camera will no longer see a connection so you are going to buy a Firewire yes? as that is the only cable that works these days with Sony, unless you return to windows 95 or XP that is.
i am unable to import videos from my mini dv digital handycam to my laptop with vista as operating system.is a i-link cable required or usb cable will do? i have the picture motion software and import from handycam software dowloaded through net. can u help me out???
This is not a monster you wanna open and play with as I've seen this puppy and its loaded with flex cables connecting all the differant pcb's together. You wanna take this or send out to a camcorder specialist please. You also need a special set of these cables to work on this unit as well as a few special service jigs. Good Luck
