My battery will not charge how do i know if it is the charger or the battery

If the unit will turn on when the charger is plugged in, it is most likely not the charger as it is supplying sufficient power to charge and operate the unit. If, however, the unit will not come on with the charger plugged in, then I would suspect the charger. You can verify by checking the voltage out of the plug with a multimeter and verify it with the voltage specified on the charger.

First: put your battery in your friends camcorder and use ur friends charger to charge the battery.
Then put your battery back into your camcorder to see if it works.

If the battery works then this eliminates the battery as a problem.

Next plug your charger into your friends camcorder to see if it will power the camcorder without battery, if this works then the problem will most likley be the connector in your camcorder.

If this does not work then the problem will be the plug or the charger.

Next plug your friends charger into your camcorder if it does not work this will verify that the problem is the connector on your camcorder

Disconnect the charger from the Camcorder and remove the battery.
Next, clean the metal contact of the battery and the battery compartment.

Then, insert the Battery in the Camcorder and turn it ON then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

After resetting the Camcorder to the default settings, connect the AC adaptor to check its operation.

Need power supply

Do you have a battery charger? If so, on mine I found a power-in little hole next to the battery power pins in the camera battery compartment. I also found the same type of power-in hole (like the ones found on a cell phone) on my battery charger. A double ended cord came with my camera. Maybe you have one, too. I plugged one end into the camera and the other end into the battery charger. Then I plugged the battery charger into an AC house outlet. This gave power to my camera. I am sure that you can find this type of double ended power cord on line or at a store.

Can the battery charger be connected to the camera for power?

best bet to deal with the battery replacement is to download the manual from panasonic and follow their guides, they usually instruct you on how to install the button batt ery at initial start up as this is what holds the date/time in memory when you are charging the main operating battery. go to the following link and enter your specific camcorder info:

regarding the power supply. You need 6 volt DC. but you need to know the polarity of the line feeding into the camera and match that from your power source, if you have the polarity backwards, you can ruin the camera. You can also cause problems if your external supply has too high of an Amperage rating as an excessive amperage can overheat your camera circuits. verify the amp rating of the camera and verify that the VCR dores not exceed that my more than a few amps.

I cannot find the ac cable for my d100 camcorder. can I get a ne

Missing Camera-Charger cable:
I had this problem, many places don't have the connector to even make one. The camera requires the full voltage from this wire to download video. But, I found the 99cent store had a CIDCO caller ID unit that used a power supply with the same size connector on the power supply. so... $2 and cut the two connectors off and twisted the ends together and voila.. problem solved. Camera to battery charger worked. The battery must be in the charger for some reason, but the camara connects. It dosen't light up during this proscess though, and it took almost a minute to do it.

The Caller Id is actually pretty good. so reconnect the wires back and you'll have $2 worth of caller ID. ( service must be active from your service provider ), but every telephone can have a display.

Sony DCR-VX1000E batteries

Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries

Hi, Try running the camera using the AC power (charger) instead of the battery. If the viewfinder works then, it is possible that the replacement battery somehow is not suited for your particular brand/model and is not capable of supplying all the need voltages/power. Try continuously charging the battery for 16 hrs at least to see if this will correct the problem. If even in using the AC power (adapter) instead of the battery, the view finder is still off, then you have a camera fault. Normal problem for this is the thin flexible flat cable that attaches the screen to the electronics inside the camera. In some case, it is the backlight of the display that is at fault. Either which would require the services of a qualified professional. Hope this be of some help/idea to you. Good luck and kind regards.
