Question about Samsung SC-D363 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Samsung SC-D363 won't charge battery

Camcorder battery will not charge. It will work plugged in, and will also work with an already-charged battery (bought a replacement battery today thinking it might be a problem with the battery itself). I have also replaced all other lithium batteries, just for kicks. There is no green flashing charge indicator, no notice of battery charge progress shown when "Display" button is pressed for 7 seconds - all of which worked before. Can you help us? Thanks.

My SC-D363 will not recognize the SD Memory Card.

The SC-D363 only can handle up to a 1 GB SD memory card, no larger, so if you are not using a 1 GB or smaller card, then that is your issue.

D363 new battery new charger still does not work the small coin battery is old cr 2025 what you advise battery chargerlight will not come on.

I have this camera, and have had trouble with connecting the charger to the mains (in the UK, using an adapter to plug the two round pin charger into a UK square pin socket). I found I had to withdraw the plug from the mains adapter socket slightly to get it to connect. Once it is powered, the charger light on the camera should flash while charging, and go on steady when fully charged. It takes a few moments to start flashing. It does not flash when the battery is not present, or when the camera is turned on, in play or record modes.

If it isn't a problem with the connection, perhaps the battery has reached the end of its life. Discharging the battery completely can shorten its life. Or perhaps the battery itself isn't connecting because it isn't seated in its mount correctly.

CR2025 coin cells are not hard to obtain- I have seen them in a local thrift mart and on eBay. I don't think it needs this battery in order to charge the main one, but it is worth a try. This battery is just to back up the memory of the settings and keep the clock running.

I charged battery for 1 day but my camcoder no power. if the battery is bad how do i know? please helps.

If the camcorder will power up with the charger plugged in, it is most likely the battery. Depending on use, rechargeable batteries can go out in as little as 6 months.

I had the same problem. The batteries do not last. When the battery becomes weak it can not run the tape so it tells you to eject it.
Buy a new bigger battery. I bought a 160 for ~$30.
