Good camcorder gone bad

I have a 1993 Memorex 158 moviecorder after leaving it plugged in a few months to its adapter I could not get it to function. It may have been a power surge that did it BUT there IS still power from the adapter and the battery. Contacts seem okay. I used an old multimeter to check voltages but am unsure of its accuracy it just shows that there is power. The camera will not function in any way. I have an 8mm tape in it but cannot eject it.
Should I try to have it fixed or just junk it and break into it to get my tape. I figure the camera might be worth $30 but it worked perfectly before this happened, I hate to throw it away. Hope you have some good advice for me.
thanks, Frank G.

How come my dsc-p73 will only work with adapter plugged in?

As soon as you plug in anything in the USB connector of your camera, It stops all actions, because it is concentrating of the two only functions it can establish in that situation. It looks if it should act as an external memory drive to export pictures to a computer or if it should start charging the battery.
Only DSLR camera's have an extra function when connected, but to "wake" that function you need extra software installed on your computer. Whit that software you then can view what is on the display (live view) and you can use it as a remote. to make a picture. Only used in pro studios.

Well the first thing I would do is recommend you send your unit in for service as you may end up doing more harm then good. You can call and get free estimates on what this may cost. If you need any further assistance or help locating a service center let me know.

I haven't used this camcorder in a couple of months (bought new in January). When I went to charge it last night, neither the mains charger or USB lead will charge it. Does it just need a new...

The battery should be good if it was bought in January, with that said nothing is nperfect or lasts forever, there are always issues with some things. If all your connections from the charger or USB are good and tight and the cables are good, the either the battery is bad or the plug in on the camera is bad, or the battery nmay be installed incorrectly. That is about all there can be .

My images won't download onto any of my computers. When I plug the USB cord in, the indicator light flashes a few times then stops.

Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader solved the problem.

Why is the jvc camcoder has no audio on videos everytime i transfer files on my pc?

Most older cameras require you use a capture card after witch a audio connector will be connected to your Sound cards line in port, A good way around this is purchase a snappy capture device that will plug into the camera then the software will pick up all that audio your talking about, you can use this device as well

Let me know ether way.

thanks for using please do not forget to leave feedback and ratings.
