Question about Sony HDR Video Cameras
Hdr cx230 camcorder = Got it out, attached battery pack and there was no power. attached usb charger to computer and camcorder, charge light blinks for a few seconds then stops, no power. I figure it is an error message. last used 2 wks ago worked fine, battery should still have quite a bit of power also from last use.

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.

there a short line to the carbon wire of the function switch.....unfold the wire to loose the fold....and clean the contact of the wire using a pencil eraser slowly

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.

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!!!
