Is there another way to charge the camera so that I can turn it on and retrieve what is on it?

You will need either the camera power supply or a charged battery, if don't have a power supply for camera or a charged battery there is no way around it.

I charged battery while in camera and left charging for a week and camera won't power up or turn on? it was with a universal charger and may have had higher voltage setting , could this have burned out...

Will your camera power on with a spare battery or through the electrical adapter ? If so then your camera is fine and the problem is your battery!

This is why manufacturers always recommend to use the supplied batteries and recommended chargers only and not some third party junk. This is why you have batteries exploding on people they don't read the warnings.

Yes it is possible to damage your battery - perhaps your battery cannot take a charge - it is NOT normal to charge a battery for a week !

your battery needs a nominal voltage to remain healthy if you allow it to drain below that voltage you have reverse polarity and your battery is good for the garbage bin.

use the recommended charger from now on and get new batteries.

Panasonic vx37

My old Panasonic Palmcorder IQ shows a red light in both switch positions-camera and VCR. Maybe yours has red for camera and green for VCR so you could tell them apart. I found that the Panasonic battery that came with the camera was the cheapest kind with the least charging time. I bought other batteries, they were good for a while, but now, many years later, they won' t hold a charge. Since I am only recording inside of my house, I have resorted to using the AC wall socket for power. I have to take the battery out of the camera. I found a power plug-in hole (like ones on cell phones) in the battery compartment. I also found one of these holes on my battery charger. My camera came with a double ended power plug. I plug one end into my camera and the other end into the battery charger. I plug the charger power cord into the wall outlet, and I have power to my older camera. Maybe you can find this double ended power cord at a store or on line.

Did you know that there are 2 kinds of batteries? Some have memories and others do not rely on a memory. The ones with memories have to be fully discharged or they will only charge a little, and keep charging less and less each time they are charged. The ones without the memory can be charged fully without being discharged fully. Check into battery information on line to get more information. Maybe you can get the non-memory kind.

Power button broke

Sounds like the power supply has a problem. You could take it into a camera shop and see what your options are.

Sony DCR-VX1000E batteries

Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries

Can a new battery destroy a camcorder?

It sure looks like it did some damage. At least you've got a work around. If the guy didn't say the battery would work in your camera, it's hard to see how he's at fault. It appears that he did live up to his end of the bargain. Perhaps you should have looked at the battery specs to see what it works with? Even if he's at fault, he probably would owe you only the current value of your camera rather than a new one.
