Question about Panasonic AG-DVC30 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Won't start Had a videographer pro over last night helping me to fine tune a new lavalier system, battery for the camera fully charged, and then after awhile he comes out of my office and says, "Your battery is dead." We charge for 20 minutes just so he can finish the work, nothing. I charge for two hours, the battery charger indicates it's now fully charged, I plug it in, nothing. Could something in the camera have fried or do the batteries just suddenly go completely dead like that? Help!

    I was testing out a mic and it went dead, too. Recharged battery: nothing. Tried another battery: nothing. I have a really important shoot this weekend and I am screwed right about now.

How old is the battery? if it's more than 2 or 3 years old, it may not hold a charge. swap a known good battery and see if it works.

Nikon s9300 - When I turn it on, the lense fully extends, but the screen stays black. I have to pop the battery out, then put back in for the lense to retract. Battery is fully charged and even tried

When the battery is fully charged, please put it in again. That means, if it is still in, remove it once again.
Switch it on, and even if you don't see a thing try to make a picture.
Then press the display button several times, to see if anything comes on the screen again.
If the camera does not respond after that, you should go back to the dealer, of contact Nikon.

My camera won't turn on, changing the batteries/cleaning the contacts hasn't helped. It was fine last night, and i can't see how it would've been knocked or damaged, i was careful!

Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)

My camera is not starting at all

I had the same problem. Almost brand new. Would turn it on and would last only 2-3 seconds, couldn't even complete one picture. Suddenly, I put in fully charged batteries and now it works! I had tried these before. The only difference was I used the batteries in another device and returned them to recharge. Just last night I decided to try once more and the charged batteries worked. No problems since with power, except now I can't get images to transfer! I did notice one little line in instructions I had never seen than when you change batteries, you have to program the camera with type used.
