Re: Hitachi charger failed


whenever youve got problems with your charging unit, check out if the capacitors are busted. but i its not, dont take a risk and buy a replacement instead. lets just avoid accidents with that. hope this helps.

My Canon FS100 is dead, it does not light up with power adapter, the battery is dead too.

The Charger that comes with the cam is said to go faulty 99% of the times. I too was shocked to see my cam in the dead condition. Checked a few things on the multimeter and found the charger to be faulty, tried replacing the charger with power supply that i designed for 8.4Volts output and the cam was back to life and started charging.!!! Hope this should help. ... you can email me for the desing of the charger or buy a new charger from an auhorised Canon dealer.Email :
thanks 7 regadrs,

Trying to buy a battery pack (VM BPL13) for Hitachi VM D865LE

Found the handbook / manual which gives the exact reference number for the battery required. Thanks for the help. Perhaps your home page could make it clear that you do not offer a 'free' service. The gratis assistance comes from the 'community' which seems to me to be non-existant!!

Lost the charger of my sony dvd201 cam corder. is there any other way i can charge my camcorder?so i dnt have to buy a new charger? and do i need power to open the camcorder disc door?

Hello. Yes, you do need power to open the disc door. When you slide the disc cover open switch, you should hear the little musical sound, and then the "preparing to open cover" appears in the lcd display. Then the door opens automatically. As for charging the corder, you can get a new ac charger for 25 bucks on Ebay. Sony uses a special plug that is inserted. If you want to go the cheaper route, I saw mobile *battery* chargers for your unit(not to be used as camcorder power supplies) as inexpensive as 8 bucks...most were 10 dollars and up...the input voltage/current to the cam is 12v @ 500ma. However, the fact that the connector isn't the generic "cylinder" shaped power connector makes purchasing a compatable power source a necessity. ---Rick

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

I can't charge the battary.

Disconnect DC power cable from AC adapter/charger. Battery charging will not be possible if the DC power cable is left connected to the AC adapter/charger.
