Question about Cameras

Open Question

My Insignia HD Insignia Camcorder won't charge. The battery is in correctly. It won't charge. I plug in the charger and it flashes for a couple hours. It should be good to go right? Wrong, the thing records for less than a minute and then it is completely dead. Oh yeah, I even wasted money on a new battery, same results. Charging via usb to the computer gets me no where. It flashes for 10 seconds then go solid red.

SOURCE: Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge

I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.

Hi there,

My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?

I believe that the camera will not charge directly from the computer - testing this theory myself... however I went to Radio Shack tonight and they have them there for 30 bucks (a bit outragious if you as me)

SOURCE: Battery Dont Charge

jpierre's solution (in another thread) was right on the money. Touch the positive (+)end of the 9v battery to the positive (+) end of the camera battery.Leave them touching for a few seconds (10 seconds should be more thansufficient). Seems these lithium-ion batteries are subject to a'digital memory.' Subjecting it to a volt surge almost three timeshigher seems to clear it.

In short, it works like a charm.

I had the same problem. I had a 1 year warranty, so I called 1800-435-7732 and they sent me a new battery within 5 days. I just received it today and it works perfectly. Hope this helps you! =]

I'm having a hard time getting my Flip HD to charge. It is brand new and this is the first time I've had to charge it. Sometimes the red light is on and steady and other times the red light is flashing. ...


I had this charging problem with 2 new Flip Ultra HD cameras...red light flashing..nothing on the screen after plugging in the USB port.

I removed the battery..plugged camera into USB port..pc recognized the camera... installed flipshare software..updated software...plugged battery back in..all good.

Why on earth the book doesn't mention these steps is beyond me.

I have a problem similar to some posted but not exactly..My unit doesn't turn on unless plugged into usb, red light comes on and screen flashes green "insignia" welcome screen then goes blank. no buttons...


If memory serves, this unit requires the battery to be in place and functional to have the camcorder work properly...so your prognosis of a failed battery would be appropriate.

Go Here: http://www.batteriesplus.com/products/546-0/6354-Camcorder-Batteries/437138-Insignia/NS--DCC5HB09/1.aspx

This should be the correct battery for the camcorder.

hope this helps!

Camera won,t turn on or take a charge


If there is a firmware solution on Insignis-Products, you might be able to restore the camcorder to life that way.

However, if the unit won't turn on at all...even when a USB AC charger is used where it should function normally and completely...there is a problem with the camcorder and it may be bricked.

I hope this helps and I hope your camcorder isn't bricked.

NS-DCC5HB09 High Definition Flash Media Camcorder: mine wont turn on and i dont have a charger!!! Hel...


You should be able to recharge this unit by connecting to your PC and charging through your USB connection.

If your battery is faulty or unable to recharge, here's a replacement battery that's available:

http://bestbuy.partsearch.com/GetModel.aspx?MfgName=Best+Buy+Company+Incorporated&BrandName=Insignia&ModelNumber=NSDCC5HB09&Page=1&SortBy=brandname&SortDirection=asc

Just about any AC to USB charger will work to recharge this unit, so if you have an iPod with the iPod wall charger, use the correct USB cable with the wall charger and you will be able to recharge the battery in the camcorder.

Hope this helps!

I have the Insignia HD camcorder, this is the second one I have and the second time I have this problem. The first couple of times it charges, then I don't use it for a couple of months, try to charge it...


Have you tried using an AC to USB charger?

I know that some products that charge through a USB port are not able to completely and correctly charge from the computers USB port because it is undervolted for what the device needs. (I have the same issue with my cell phone).

Also, may of a computers USB ports will power enough for data transfer, but not enough for charging the unit.

Try using an AC to USB power supply and not the computers USB ports.

Hope this works!

Camcorder will not turn on without being plugged


If the camera is turning on and is able to be used normally while plugged in to an AC wall pack, but not using the battery, there is probably a problem with either the battery or the internal power switch to go from AC to battery.

Check the battery with a voltmeter to insure you have a fully charged battery. It would also be a good idea to use the voltmeter on the camcorders power tabs to make sure the camcorder is passing the correct voltage to the battery. The amount of volts should match the volts on the battery.

If it's a battery issue, batteries plus has a replacement for this camcorder. If not, it's a switch within the camera (software most likely) and there's not much you can do other that try to reload the camcorders firmware if it is available fromt eh Insignia-Products web site.

Hope this helps!
