Question about Canon GL2 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Does the camera work with the a/c power adapter?
If not then it could be something internal.
But if it works with the adapter, your batteries are bad or your battery terminals are dirty.
But just to be safe I would replace the back-up battery which is locate in the screen pocket of the camera. its a CR-2025 Nickel Cadmium battery
also I don;t know if you have a manual but here is a link to one.

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

You may have a loose DC jack:
Symptoms of a broken power jack
1. If you wiggle the power cord or the AC Adapter connector on the back of the laptop, the power LED and battery charge LED start to flicker.
2. Battery will not charge in the laptop.
3. Laptop runs fine off a charged battery.
4. With the AC Adapter connected the laptop appears to be dead.
No power LED or battery charge LED activity.
5. Laptop randomly powers off without any warning.
If your laptop is out of warranty, then you can fix the problem by re-soldering DC-IN jack on the system board. If it's still under warranty, it would be fixed at no charge to you.
