SOURCE: Power cord and battery's support NO power to Video Camera

This incident happens often and damages the camcorder's power board. Replacing power board and some adjustment should resolved the problem. Your cost may run from $175-$225 in US for this model. Whenever you are transfering and connecting to pc, it is recommended to connect AC adapter power for this. Do not rely on a charged battery. Good luck.

SOURCE: My canon fs 100 doesn't turn on

I took the camera to the representative and we started various tests such as:
Tried My battery in OTHER camera .... not working
Tried OTHER battery in MY camera .... works
Tried charging MY battery in OTHER Camera .... works
Tried MY battery in MY camera and charged .... worked
Bottom end is that my charger is not working although it heats when "charging".

Now i will look at the pins in the charger to see if they are working or not.

Whatever the case .... getting a new charger.

SOURCE: Brand new Flip Ultra HD. Giving error "Check Battery Pack Chargin

check the contacts on the bottom of the pack. for some reason, the plastic sheathing covers the positve contact of one of the batteries. i took an xacto knife and cut a small hole to expose that end. after that, voila, no more charging problem. i woke up to a full charge this morning!!!

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.

My dcr sr 80 is not charging


Depending on your camera, the battery may be able to be charged on the camera or by using a separate battery charger. Refer to the section below that relates to the charging method you are using.

Charging while the battery is attached to the camera:

  1. Make sure the battery is firmly attached and the AC adapter is securely connected.
  2. If your camera can charge the battery with a USB connection, use the built-in USB cable to connect it to the computer. If you use a USB charger instead of the computer, check the compatibility of the USB charger.
  3. Turn off the camera. The battery is does not charge if the camera is turned on.

Charging using the battery charger:

  1. If the CHARGE lamp does not light or blinks when charging, the terminals may be dirty. Wipe the dust away with a dry cloth and charge the battery again.
  2. Make sure the metal contacts on the battery are free of corrosion.

I am having the same problem. My camera will not come on and I have changed the battery. It will not even charge. Does anyone know what is going on with this camera


If you can not power up with charger, your charger may be bad. If you can power up with charger, your camcorder battery terminal may be bad.

Dewalt battery charger won't charge


As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.

What is the docking station for?


a usb cable will work... the docking stations are handy as you just put the camera/camcorder into the docking station ... no extra cord... often has the charger built in as well
