Canon Vixia HF M41 doesn't charge battery - red light flashing rapidly

If you don't use the battery for a long period of time even a new battery may become dead. You can try a new battery. If it still doesn't work then the problem is with the charging IC. u can also try a desktop charger instead of direct charger.

I have received as a gift a Canon FS300 Digital Video Camcorder . The first time I used it, I followed instruction on how to charge the battery with CA-570 Compact Power Adapter which was included. It wok...


Almost sure there is nothing wrong with your battery, charger and camcorder.
The battery loose power even when doing nothing, especially when it is a NiMH type.

Please charge the battery for a couple of hours and try again to start the camcorder.

Good luck!

ZR100 will not trun on

How long have let the camcorder sit still before using again? It seems that you were using it then the battery was out of charge, then you tried to charge it, but nothing happend. Is that your problem?

My Canon MD205 won't charge up. All I had to do was plug in the charger and attach it to the front of the camera and the red light would start flashing, telling me it was charging. Now nothing happens.


Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first (check that the voltage is correct with a volt meter) but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Anything is fixable but it is more "is it cost effective"

My flip video camera wont turn on....

Have you tried resetting the camera? Hold down the power button and the red button simultaneously until the camera shuts off (takes about 10 seconds). Then, just press the power button again and the camera should turn back on. I had the same problem; when I pressed the red button to stop recording, the camera froze, and the red light remained on. I tried resetting it like this, and it seemed to work.

Canon Elura 60 won't power up

The same thing happened to mine soon after I got it. Turned out the plug I was using to plug it into the wall to charge had gone bad. The replacement was over $100 so I went with a (cheaper) wall battery charger that you conect the battery to.

The camera seems to have these problems, and I think its because the power switch is on when the camers is being charged.
