I have a Thomson Consumer Electronics AC Adapter 232595 and it has no power, after it has been dropped. Could the fuse be the problem?

SONY DCR200 CAMCORDER turn off when I Opend th LCD but it's working when attached with AC power Cable

More than likely the camera has an internal problem in the power supply section. There is an electronic switching circuit that switches between the battery input and the DC input coming from the AC adapter. Your camera requires professional servicing. One such place is Home Services Consumer Camcorder Sony

Auto power off

Link to user manual

No you can't turn off this feature

Nathan Petersen June 17th, 2005, 04:03 PM Is there away to turn the auto power off off. I dont think there is, just thought I'd ask, thanks. Don Palomaki June 17th, 2005, 08:47 PM Not on the original XL1. It will drop into STANDBY from PAUSE if there is a tape in the transport after around 5 minutes. If there is NOT a tape in the camcorder it will not not drop into STANDBY but will remain operating as a camera. Xander Christ June 17th, 2005, 09:25 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true. Don Palomaki June 18th, 2005, 07:33 AM True - in that when using the battery, the camcorder will shut down when the battery runs out of available charge. However, using the A/C adapter does not prevent the XL1 from going into standby if a tape is in the camcorder. Nathan Petersen June 18th, 2005, 04:52 PM Canon suggests that the only way to keep the XI from shutting off is to use the AC adapter as the power source, not the battery. I haven't tried it, so I don't know if it's true.

No it still does it with the AC adapter, Im not even using the battery. It makes no sense to have the auto power off when shooting indoors while using the AC adapter, its just stupid. Don Palomaki June 19th, 2005, 05:59 AM Again, the key point is having a tape in the XL1. After about 5 minuts it goes into Standby mode (not the same as turning the power off with the dial). This is a carryover from pure consumer camcorders - to save battery and reduce damage to tape and head wear from a camcorder left in pause mode for a long time.

Pro users complained, so the XL1s had an option to disable this feature so that only the tape transport (VCR portion) is turned off after 5 minutes, the camera head continues to run. link to above thread

Camcorder just stopped working. no power even with ac adapter.

The fuses in these are small solder in types. the main 2 amp fuse may have opened. part will say 2 on it. measure it with your ohm meter. Larry's Electronics

JVC Everio GZ-MG20u Hard Disck Camcorder

It does have a reset button. When you open the lcd door, look at the bottom of where the lcd opens, you will see a small area that says reset.

Also, there is an option in the menu that allows you to restore the harddrive. That may help as well, your hard drive may have gotten corrupted.

Here is the JVC website for this model, I would suggest reading the manual available there. It is in PDF so you will need adobe reader.

Good Luck!

Power Failure

Check the output from the AC Adapter first. If no good, battery not charging/dead so nothing works. If good, camera needs service - could be anything. There is probably at least one surface mount fuse.
