My sony handycam DCR-TRV340E is not charging at all, dont know if its to do with the battery or the AC power adaptor


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.

First off I would buy a converter that allows you to plug your usb cord into it and then it plugs into an AC outlet. It will charge faster. Second, it sounds like when you PC is trying to recognize the hardware you have plugged into the usb port it isn't finding any software associated with the device and is for some reason restarting. If you received a software disc with your camcorder, try loading it on this PC and see if that fixes the problem.

Handycam not holding charge even with new battery.


Sometimes the batteries will build up a memory if they are only used for short periods of time and never used to the point of going completely dead, so possibly getting a new battery online. B&H photo is a pretty good site.
I know some chargers have an output to the cameras battery connector that powers the camera, and if that is plugged into the charger it will not charge the battery simultaneously.
If the camera is working when plugged into the power source it usually turns out to be a battery problem. Sadly the only choice it to buy a new battery.

Hello, i have a DVD-R disc, 30 minutes, 1.4 GB, handycam and we recorded some videos, one month later our recorder havent´t charge, we conected it for being charged, after that we would like to see...


I am so so sorry my friend, but like millions of other people you too have found that DVD disks for recording movies simply do not work.
The disks are 98% un-reliable for movie recordings and this is why people like myself a Pro Movie maker for 30 years keep telling the silly sods who make movie camera WE WANT TAPE cameras back, and the only one which ever worked well was 8mm tape.
I surgest you call those fools on the Sony line and tell them that you like us do NOT trust these Sony disk cams on 01256 828828 UK number.
I will be pleased if you let me know how you get on, because these disks simply are rubbish.

Battery life?


Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.

Flashing lights


This sounds similar to a problem I had. I brought the camera in under warranty and the repair shop fixed it. They shop text is cryptic.
Problem: Camera light keeps flashing, not charge
Solution: Troubleshoot to intermittent switch block control, replace with new one, test OK.

Won't turn off


the On/Off/VTR Switch doesn't function anymore and the camera is a month old. Basically anytime the battery is in the camera or the camera is plugged in, it remains 'On'.

That means you can't charge batteries or use VTR mode, or turn the thing off. Way to go on this one Sony.
