Your problem may be due to worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Why doesn't my Mini DV have any power?


Your power lead is really only a charger and doesn't actually power your camera. What you have is a dead battery. All rechargeable batteries eventually give up, and it's time for a new one. You can risk a 2nd hand one, but it may show the same problem sooner or later. The good news is that they are only about 10 pounds on auction and similar sites..

This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired qualified service technician.

Canon ZR90 Mini DV Digital Camcorder no power even when plugged in charger no red light tryed 2 batterys


Batteries may need to be recharged or replaced if the error persists after battery recharge or replacement the unit may require a service evaluation. If the batteries currently in the device and it is not working properly, remove the batteries and wait for 30 seconds and re-insert the batteries. In doing so if your camera has a back-up or date and time battery, remove this battery as well. Removal of the back-up battery will cause a full reset of the camera and will clear any settings, including date and time.

Step by step instructions to transfer recorded videos from jvc gr-d370u to Pc, please.


First, you need a Firewire connection (also called IEEE 1394). Most of PC computers don't have it, including mine. I bought a cheap Firewire card and installed it into an empty PCI slot, costed about $15.
I hope you don't have the USB cable and the firewire cable plugged into your computer at the same time. That can break things.

With the firewire cable plugged into the DV port of the camcorder and the firewire port of the computer and the camcorder is in Play mode (and plugged into the wall AC power with the power adapter), are you saying that when you launch MovieMaker and "Capture", the video camera is not recognized?

There are only two conditions that can cause this:

1) The firewire400 port on the computer is not working properly (how do you know it is working?). If you are using Vista Home Basic, chances are good that the IEEE1394a firewire port drivers were never loaded... so, that will be your first step. Get that port working and you'll be ready to go.

2) The DV port on the camcorder is not working properly. This could be for several reasons, but lets hope the DV port was not fried if you ever had the USB and firewire connections to your computer at the same time... Reset the camcorder to factory defaults by disconnecting all cables, removing the rechargeable battery and removing the little date/time button battery inside the camcorder. Wait for about 20 minutes. Put the button battery back in, then put the rechargeable battery back on. Set the date and time. Connect the firewire cable to the DV port, connect the AC power adapter to the wall, connect the other side of the firewire cable to the firewire port on the computer, launch MovieMaker - will it "Capture" from the video tape?

Anyone you know nearby with an Apple Macintosh and iMovieHD? You will need a 4-pin to 6-pin firewire cable and the AC power adapter. If it works with the Mac, we know it is not the camcorder's DV port. If it does not work, chances are good the camcorder's firewire port is bad.
Hope this was helpful?

Mustek DV-3500 DV Digital Camcorder /keeps turning off


Be sure the batteries are not the rechargeable types.  I had this problem when I first got my camera about 4 years ago.  Also, try adjusting the quality settings for the functions.  For example, set the photo function at normal rather than fine.
