Question about RCA CC645 VHS-C Analog Camcorder

1 Answer

Battery refresh problem

I hadn't used my old CC645 VHS-C in years, but when I took it out of mothballs it seemed to work fine, although the battery was low. I put the battery in the charger and pressed refresh. When the light came on that it was done, I lent the camera to a friend, but I didn't test it first. He couldn't get the camera to operate and when he gave it back neither could I. I figured there was a problem with the battery, so I put it back in the charger and pressed refresh again. Now both the refresh light and the charging light are flashing at the same time. Is that normal? Do I need a new battery? I'm confused.

    Thanks for your prompt response. It appears to be the battery. I managed to fix the charger (the refresh button was stuck), but it looks like the battery won't hold a charge. I'm going to try refresh/charge one more time (since I'm not sure it was truely "refreshed" before it charged) and if that doesn't work, I'm off to eBay.



    Cheers!

You will probably need a new battery as NiCd dont' last forever. However, before buying one, try out the camera on the mains adaptor. This will tell you if there is a problem with the camera.

Good luck

My acer aspire 7736G was working fine, it's about 2.5 years old, and is used mainly with the power cord plugged in. When using it the other day the computer just went dead on me. I took the batter


You have reached the end life of the battery pack. The battery must have some minimum charge to have computer function even with the AC power pack connected. So I suggest you replace the battery pack as a solution. Any local Radio Shack store can test this battery I am told free of charge.

Will not read smartchip


I had the same problem but i fixed it. I'm not sure if this will work for you though. I took off the battery door and noticed that although my battery fit, it was somehow off by a few millimeters maybe. I took a tiny piece of paper, folded it and then fit it near the edge of the battery. This pushed the battery exactly where it should've been and then the phone could read the sim card again. I don't know how it got knocked outta wack but this seemed to help.
