Re: charging the handycam

Is the charger plugged into mains? If so, check that all the connectors are firmly attached, if you still have a problem, it may be your AC adaptor.

Battery symbol blinking when put on charging.

It does sound like the battery needs to be replaced, but it also could be an internal charging problem with the camcorder. I would try a new battery first, since it's the easiest and cheapest option

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 :)

Battery life?

Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.

Make sure the batteries are fully charged. It may be your batteries may show they are charged but are too leak to operate the camera. Try a new one

there can be many reasons. rusted contacts, or blown up fuses, or a short circuit in the power board, and may be some thing else. No one can help unless he examines the camera.
