Re: Charger on cam does not work

If your extended battery came with small cord the cord needs to be plugged into the battery and the camera DC outlet).  My Everio was doing the same thing and I did the above and it works.

It wont turn on i even bought a new batery and still nothing what could it be?

Is your new battery charged? You may need to place it in the charger or hook the camera to the AC power and leave it overnight. If you have a charging cradle try to charge the battery that way. Sometimes that arrive dead.

My Canon FS100 is dead, it does not light up with power adapter, the battery is dead too.

The Charger that comes with the cam is said to go faulty 99% of the times. I too was shocked to see my cam in the dead condition. Checked a few things on the multimeter and found the charger to be faulty, tried replacing the charger with power supply that i designed for 8.4Volts output and the cam was back to life and started charging.!!! Hope this should help. ... you can email me for the desing of the charger or buy a new charger from an auhorised Canon dealer.Email :
thanks 7 regadrs,

My hitachi camcorder says I need an AC adapter/charger

Hi Riannasmail,
You need a camcorder to charger DC cable,it looks like a battery with a trailing cable that has a DC plug on the end that plugs into the Hitachi battery charger.If you are in the USA you should be able to buy one for about $8 to $12,if you live in UK you will be ripped off at about £24.
I made my own adaptor and charger system for less than £20,If you need more info please contact me.

My jvc camcorder GZ-MG37U will not charge

Camcorder has charging circuit but it could go defective. The repair would be costly so in this situation, you can purchase stand-along battery charger for around $20 and charge the batteries independently. Make sure all the contacts are cleaned and camcorder is working with direct ac adapter. Good luck -James. for furnter assistance by email, go to
