Re-attach the power source flashing

My camera wants me to re-attach the power source.  It doesn't matter if I'm using the battery or AC adaptor.  The DV tape holder in the camera will not pop out automatically.  When I do get it to open the camera displays the eject tape symbol.

  • Anonymous I had exactly the same problem. I disconnected the battery and then reinstalled it and the problem was fixed.
    First time I tried this, it didn't work as I had the DC cable attached. It seems that you need to disconnect all power sources for the device to reset itself.

Answer # 1

I had the same problem. I took off the battery pack and wiped the it down with a kleenex as well as the socket in the camera where the battery pack connects to. This fixed the problem.
