Re: battery will not charge

You can purchase a battery charget for your specific battery from wal-mart for about 49.00. If you charge you battery and it still does not work, and another battery of the same type doesnot work, then your problem might lie in the camera itself. unfortunately I am having problems getting mine to charge as well.

When the battery is on the charger there is 2 lghts one is power the otther is charge when the light is on for charge do it mean it is fully charged or charging

Yes, when both lights are on.. it means the battery is charging. The "charging" light should turn off once the battery is fully charged.

If the "charging" light remains on 12 or more hours later, your battery might need to be replaced.

Jvc gr-dv800u blinking power light when i plug it in

The camera's battery is charging while the light blinks. When the battery gets fully charged, the led will stay on, indicating that the battery is charged. The manual should explain this, in case you still have it. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Battery power problem

Even though the camera shows that the battery is charged it could still be that the battery is faulty. If you don't want the needless expense of buying a new battery just to find the fault is with the camera after all, try rigging up a test circuit with a piece of wire and a low voltage light bulb from a torch or fairy lights. If the bulb lights up then the battery should be OK. (Make sure the bulb works with another normal 9v battery you know is good.)

I just tried this with my camera battery and an old dud battery I had to scrap and the bulb lights up with the good battery as expected.

Panasonic vx37

My old Panasonic Palmcorder IQ shows a red light in both switch positions-camera and VCR. Maybe yours has red for camera and green for VCR so you could tell them apart. I found that the Panasonic battery that came with the camera was the cheapest kind with the least charging time. I bought other batteries, they were good for a while, but now, many years later, they won' t hold a charge. Since I am only recording inside of my house, I have resorted to using the AC wall socket for power. I have to take the battery out of the camera. I found a power plug-in hole (like ones on cell phones) in the battery compartment. I also found one of these holes on my battery charger. My camera came with a double ended power plug. I plug one end into my camera and the other end into the battery charger. I plug the charger power cord into the wall outlet, and I have power to my older camera. Maybe you can find this double ended power cord at a store or on line.

Did you know that there are 2 kinds of batteries? Some have memories and others do not rely on a memory. The ones with memories have to be fully discharged or they will only charge a little, and keep charging less and less each time they are charged. The ones without the memory can be charged fully without being discharged fully. Check into battery information on line to get more information. Maybe you can get the non-memory kind.

Not charging?

Please plug the camera charger in AC Outlet and hook it to camera. Check camera power turn ON, works fine? if OK, switch it to Standby / Off mode. Attach battery and check any charging light lit? If yes, leave the camera on charging position for 4-5 hours until its charge light flashs or turn Off. battery is chaged now. Have fun :)
