This happens alot at work its either the charging part is broke or its the mainboard inspect the port for damage if its ok then inspect the ac adapter for damage as well, if you have time you could go to best buy and ask to use a charger from a floor model if it doesnt work then it needs to go in for repair sorry.

What is the blinking red light at the bottom of the screen on the canon zr600?

If I remember correctly that means the battery is fully charged. Are you seeing this while using the camera with the AC adapter?

Canon zr 200 camcorder won't turn on unless plug into electrical outlet.

Hi, Please charge your battery ( with camcoder Off) for at least 1 hour. Then unplug your charger and turn On your camcoder. If it can not turn on, it is apparently you have flat battery and need replacement.

Camcoder has no battery and no electric plug charger. Cant open it to put the casset in

Go to Radio Shack and buy AC-To-DC power adapter($18.99) and make sure to pick up the Adaptaplug "B" which is free. The power adapter has multiple settings, but this cam uses 6 volts.
I just picked these up for my old PROV730 that I'm repurposing as a baby monitor.

Power Failure

Check the output from the AC Adapter first. If no good, battery not charging/dead so nothing works. If good, camera needs service - could be anything. There is probably at least one surface mount fuse.
