Hi,

Did you check if the charger is workuing properly.it might have neen spoilt andn therefore it is not able to charge the battery.
If it is fine then the problem is with the battery or the camcorder.You can try replacing it with a new battery to see if that helps you fix the problem.

If you can do the repairs yourself there are two ways to fix the problem.
And even after replacing the new battery if you face the same problem.Then there are only two ways to fix the problem either give it for a repair or Dismental the camera.

Try to locate the power board. have a keen look at the components near the battery connector or the power connector. there you will be able to locate 3 to 4 safety fuses. check the continuty. if found open replace it and the problem can be solved. AND

the other way is to locate the motor for tape deck loading mechanism. Remove the flex ribbion connector of the motor from the pcb, then try giving 3volt supply from an external device to the motor in both the direction. in one direction it will move the deck outward, but be carefull when the cassette is being ejected a little portion of the tape may get damaged.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

    Even you do not have the shop receipt many brands provide you with one year free guarantee, usually all you need to to is register your product with the manufacturer. Again, we need make and model to find out.

My irobot (Roomba)is only working for 10 mins then


It should take about 6 hrs to charge. I had the same problem and reset the charging circuit. 1) Charge it until the green light comes on. 2) Unplug and pull battery out. 3) hold down the power on button 15-30 seconds. 4.) Put the battery back in, plug in the charger (direct - not through the dock) and charge for 72 hrs. Then, run at Max clean until the "I'm dead" tune plays.

I went to charge my canon FS100 camcorder than went to turn it on and it not working now what can be the problem?


have the same prob this morning, check the charging unit for the serial no. (will begin with CA) mine is CA590E, the 590 is a known problem to cannon, it will either discharge the battery pack (pray this is the fault) or it will internally damage the camcorder. mine is only 18 months old used a max of maybe 10 times. I will reply again this afternoon when i've tried a new battery charger, just waiting for my cannon dealer to open.

I was given a nice sony handycam camcorder. i was told the battery is probley dead


Batteries have a limited life even if they are constantly charged.
Leaving batteries in constant charge will limit their life by causing gas leakage. Once depleted, they must be replaced. There is also a small button battery that keeps unit memory up, if you do not use camera for months at a time, replace this battery also.
Ni-Cad batteries need to be refreshed ony once a month by discharging them fully, then recharging them fully for best performance to erase memory effect

Sony Handycam DCR-HC30 2004 model


Your unit is a 2004 model. If it has never been used since then the battery is probably no good and will need replaced. Batteries discharge 20% on a monthly basis just sitting on the shelf so yours went dead a long time ago. Then if they are left in that state (dead) they sulfate which means that sulfur oxides transfer to the plates and form an insulating surface. At that point all the charging in the world is not going to bring it back. All you can do is get another one. They are available at most stores which sell electronics. Get a new battery and charge it per the instructions and try using it again. This should solve your problem. Good luck.
