My camera wont charge in the tray or the charge light won't come on. Camera keeps saying low battery.


My guess is that with the age of the battery it isn't able to hold a charge anymore which means you'll need to purchase a new battery. Your best bet for that will be to go through Sony or the website Dr. Battery.

My memorex mcc228rsblk camcorder wont charge. when i put it my computer to charge and when it charges up i unplug it from the usb but it wont come on


It is possible your battery is dead, or the camera is no longer able to charge from the battery.
Are you able to verify that the battery has a charge when unplugged?

My battery is not holding charge


ensure the battery is well charged allover again
use the right charger and charge for the allocated duration

when you are not using the camera, remove battery from the panel

then if you charge and dont use your battery for a couple of days please charge again before using as it would have decharged to an extent to avoid disappointment.

if the above don't work, the battery might have gone bad and you may need to request for replacement form your vendor

I have sharp VL E630 the battery is charged I put it in the camcorder the screnn fickered a couple times the went black and now nothing? Allan


Many times the contacts that hold the battery in place become compressed and they no longer make good contact. This results in not only the battery no charging often, but the camera not working. Make sure that the metal tabs are holding the battery securely.

The other possibility is a short. This is much harder to troubleshoot and may require you take the camera in for repair. But if the device has a short, it will shut the camera down.

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.

If the issue persists then the DC in jack requires to be serviced.

Brand new Flip Ultra HD. Giving error "Check Battery Pack Charging paused" after 30 seconds of plugging into the USB port of my computer. This USB port DOES support high power.


check the contacts on the bottom of the pack. for some reason, the plastic sheathing covers the positve contact of one of the batteries. i took an xacto knife and cut a small hole to expose that end. after that, voila, no more charging problem. i woke up to a full charge this morning!!!

No Power


does the camera work with the a/c power adapter?
If not then it could be something internal.
But if it works with the adapter, your batteries are bad or your battery terminals are dirty.
But just to be safe I would replace the back-up battery which is locate in the screen pocket of the camera. its a CR-2025 Nickel Cadmium battery
also I don;t know if you have a manual but here is a link to one.
