Question about Canon ES55 Camcorder

1 Answer

I have an ES55 Canon and it works fine with the AC adapter but will not switch over when unplugged. The battery is fine and so is the spare battery that I bought unnecessarily. There was a post on your Q&A with a similar problem. If the problem is internal, I would like to send it to you. Also, the *** of the AC adapter recently snapped off in the socket. I could imagine quite a few ways to get it out, but you could probably give me just as many reasons why that would be a bad idea. So should I send it in for service, or do you have any easy fix suggestions. Eric

There is a switch inside the charging port of the camera that has gone bad. you can find them at lots of repair sites on the internet. (it replaces the entire charging port.) just be sure you are good at soldiering! there are a lot of tiny pieces right around it.

Laptop reboots when ac adapter reattached.


Hello,
There are three parts in the computer that you need to check.
1. Ac Adapter - it could be defective.
2. Battery - it could be that the battery and ac adapter won't work together because the battery has gone bad. We cannot tell without checking that.
3. Motherboard - it could be that the motherboard's power port is defective.
Do the following so that you can isolate the problem.
1. Remove the battery and use the Ac Adapter only and turn on your computer. If it turns on without any problem, then replace your battery.
2. If the computer still reboots with the ac adapter plugged in (no battery), then replace the ac adapter. or try using a different ac adapter which is compatible with your computer and check if it produces the same problem. If the other adapter produces the same problem, then it's in your motherboard and you need to get it fixed by a technician.

Nc6000 multibay battery does not recharge


Perhaps remove the multi-bay battery, and let main battery charge all the way. Then reattach multi-bay battery, and see if it's recognized.
(Will charge)

That is AC adapter (Charger) removed, then remove multi-bay battery.
Plug AC adapter back into laptop, THEN plug AC adapter into power.

[You do Not want to unplug an AC adapter from a laptop, with the AC adapter plugged into power. Could be a power surge/voltage spike. Unplug AC adapter from power, when plugging into laptop, or unplugging from laptop ]

Main battery charged, unplug power to AC adapter, unplug AC adapter from laptop. Plug multi-bay battery in, then AC adapter.
(Then plug AC adapter into power)

I got a compaq c36 it was working fine but now it wont switch on or anything do you now what it could be


1. Plug the laptop into AC power.

2. Take out the battery.

3. Try a different outlet.

4. Look for the light that indicates that the AC adapter is plugged in. If that light isn't on, try plugging and unplugging the AC power jack and moving it around until the light shows its connected. If no light comes on, its possible you have a bad DC jack or the AC adapter needs to be replaced.

5. If the indicator light is on and the laptop won't power on, then it's possible you have a bad switch board or stuck button. Make sure no buttons are stuck. Conversely, push hard on the power button and move it around in order to make sure you're making good contact.

6. If you know the battery has a charge, unplug the AC adapter and connect the battery. If it turns on, then you can be sure you have a bad DC jack or a bad AC adapter.

My boss metal zone pedal power light wont come on when i hook the ac adapter to it i get nothing but a hum and no output clean or distortion,then when i plug a 9volt battery in it gives only clean tone...


There is a switch contact that connects the battery when you unplug the AC adapter. These commonly get sprung and cease to make contact leaving the battery disconnected when adapter is unplugged, resulting in no power. Verify the battery is being connected and see if the unit works properly. If so the adapter is either the wrong one or defective.
In other words, there may be two problems.

Battery won't charge


If the battery is not charging, then the charging circuit of the motherboard is bad.

Page 3-22 lists the spare part number for the motherboard. (4 versions depending on options)

Chapter 5 covers disassembly and reassembly

Canon ES55 camcorder


The camcorder has a port called "Audio Video Out". You need an adapter cable (Canon's cable is the C-250) to connect from this port to a television or VCR. Use the white RCA plug on the cable with the "Audio In" jack and the yellow RCA plug with the "Video In" jack on the television or VCR.
Canon's cable is available from their online store at

Try this:

4. switch on and start up

If this works, shut down, unplug and replace the battery.

Hopefully your problem is resolved.
