Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC20 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Got my camcorder out the other day in preparation for the wife using it and checked the batteries using the dspl/batt info button - worked fine.
Now I thought I'd switched it off properly but came to use it today and the main large FP70 battery was totally flat so I plugged in the mains supply to check a tape. After a while it started flicking back from play to camera mode.
Now when I plug in either the FP70 or the FP50 I can't get the battery info display or the charge light when i set the FP70 to charge,
I've confirmed the adapter is working by turning the camcorder on with only the adapter connected and it seems to be charging the FP70 as I've left it plugged in then turned the camcorder on and got a read out in the normal LCD display for remaining charge time for both the FP70 & FP50.
This sounds similar to a problem I had. I brought the camera in under warranty and the repair shop fixed it. They shop text is cryptic.
Problem: Camera light keeps flashing, not charge
Solution: Troubleshoot to intermittent switch block control, replace with new one, test OK.
