    have the same problem with my camcorder. called hitachi and they told me to ship it to Atlanta,Ga and have them take a look and maybe they can see what is wrong. I live in sw florida and there is no one who will look at it to see what the problem is

    I had just finished downloading the video to my PC, and never interrupted the power or the download process.

    Turned camera off and came back later, and would not power on, either with the battery fully charged, or the AC adapter.

The battery or charger might be bad and need replacing. Do you have a different USB port available? It's possible the port you are trying to charge from is not powered.

I have a sony Handycam (DCR-SR65) model, the battery is loaded but the camera won't switch on, it looks dead!

Is the battery fully charged?
If you connect the camera to the charger same happens?
Try charging the battery or test with a different battery.

My handycam works fine with a np-f550 3 hour battery. With the np-750 6 hr battery it starts out okay but then 5 minutes later the charge drops to zero... is he battery bad? It charges up fine.

np-750 ur mentioning ....n other you r using is np-f 550
ther is allot of difference in both of the model npf stands for info lithium battery ....

make sure 1 st that other one is also NPF
if yes, then your battery is faulty cells in battery has become week.

I tried charging it, but it will not turn on. It will not turn on when it is plugged into computer either.

Try a different new battery. If that did not solve the problem. Check the on off switch. It is possible, if you droped it, it may have been damged. Good luck

The camera wont turn on, period!

Never been dropped to the best of your knowledge. Try plugging it in with the new battery in it and let it charge for a day. Then see what happens. Make sure there isn't any sort of protective film or anything preventing the battery from making contact. ALso take a light and look cvery closely with a magnifying lense inside the battery compartment and observe if there is any sort of corosion or lisalignment etc.

Battery fully charged but not turning on

If you have a power cord or usb cord plug them in see if it will come on. If cam comes on charger may be bad. If Cam does not come on could be many different issues.

Quick question, if you can help me

Hello Tusharz,

I guess..some connector that connects to the charging module and memory card slot must have come off becuase of the drop.

The camera has to be dismantled and probably the connector should be put(seated) back in place.

Let me know where you live
