Digital video camcorder


Try the most obvious solutions first; making sure the AC adapter for the camera is plugged into the camcorder-- and the plug orientation is correct if applicable, and it is in turn plugged into the wall.
Is the wall outlet working? Try another location in your home to be sure. Is the AC adapter working? If you have a battery, attach it to the camera and see if it charges. Next, look for obvious outward physical damage to the camcorder that could cause it to stop working.
The thin battery you speak of if generally just for backing up the time and date, and is not needed for operation.
The power switch on Canon models is usually a slider that goes from Manual to Auto to VCR mode. If it is dirty or wearing out, move it a small amount to one side or the other, while watching the LED power indicator. If you see it flash, or light dimly, the switch is bad.
Read the manual-- the unit may have a reset function you can access, or require a tape in it to power up. Hope these help.

RCA prov712 battery will only last 5 minutes


Be sure to charge for AT LEAST 14 hours on the new battery, even if the charger light goes out - it's still trickle charging. It's normal for most camcorders to auto-shut off after 5 minutes, if it's not recording. But if your batt light comes on, the problem is probably with the battery.

Charging battaries oversea.


The battery chargers that are included with JVC camcorders sold in the U.S. are designed to operate on power from 110 to 240 Volts at 50 or 60 Cycles AC. All that is needed to use the battery charger overseas is a plug adapter to connect into a foreign electrical outlet. These are generally available from a store which carries electrical supplies.
