Question about Canon DC210 DVD Camcorder

1 Answer

My Canon DC210 will not turn on. Ithought maybe the battery was dead, so I hooked the camera up to the charger. It's been charging for two days now. But whenever I try to turn it on the "DISC/CHG" light goes off and then nothing happens. Please help me!

    Not even a year old and it will not hold a charge and will not run off the chord. aggravating. As well these disk are not very user friendly. I would NOT buy this camera again.

You may have a faulty charger or internal battery.

If your camera is still under warranty take it back to the shop where you bought it, explain what is happening, and ask for a refund or exchange.

Does it really need to be plugged into an outlet to turn on?


NO - the camera should have a battery life for at least 2-3hrs for video taking and playback.
It does need to be in it's base to recharge properly , maybe the battery is low and , but , once charged fully you should be able to turn on/off many times.
Try letting the batteries run down very low - and then leave them charging for 7-10 hours. -- Ray

It wont turn on i even bought a new batery and still nothing what could it be?


Is your new battery charged? You may need to place it in the charger or hook the camera to the AC power and leave it overnight. If you have a charging cradle try to charge the battery that way. Sometimes that arrive dead.

When I connect the battery charger to the camcorder it doesnt even even show that I have the battery charger hooked up nor does it charge the camera. Could that be a problem with the camera or the charger?


I got hold of Canon support. I had the same problem. Got a new battery, fully charged and would not run the unit. Canon told me to do a system reset. pull out main battery and aux battery (bottom of unit) and to power switch to aux for 90 seconds. the put batteries back and it should work. Hope this helps.

My canon fs 100 doesn't turn on


I took the camera to the representative and we started various tests such as:
Tried My battery in OTHER camera .... not working
Tried OTHER battery in MY camera .... works
Tried charging MY battery in OTHER Camera .... works
Tried MY battery in MY camera and charged .... worked
Bottom end is that my charger is not working although it heats when "charging".

Now i will look at the pins in the charger to see if they are working or not.

Whatever the case .... getting a new charger.

I can not get my canon DC210 batteries to charge


Clean the contacts on the battery and the charger with a pencil eraser. Make sure you are inserting the batteries correctly, with the battery contacts touching the charger's contacts.

Charging battery on a DC210


It blinks red when charging and it goes to steady red when its fully charged.

The best source is to look in the user manual:

Its on pg. 20, step 5 on the right column.

It sounds like you may have a faulty battery or charger.

Take the extra battery and whatever you used to charge it (camcorder or battery charger) back to the shop where you bought it and get them to help you figure out what's wrong with their product. Your purchase is still under warranty and you deserve to have a product that works.
