SOURCE: Can a lithium ion battery be overcharged?

Here's a small FAQ I found: 1) My lithium ion battery is the SONY NP-FP70 Battery Pack. Does the fact that the battery is called a battery pack mean that it has built in circuitry to prevent an overcharge? No. I write with some authority since I've dissected too many and there is no such circuit in the battery. From a system perspective it doesn't belong there. 2) Is there any way of knowing if my SONY BC-TRP charger has the circuitry for preventing an overcharge? You'll have to ask, but the key clues are: a. The documention tells you to not leave it plugged in overnight. b. The battery gets too hot and melts the plastic. 3) If I charge my battery in my camcorder (SONY DCR-HC40), can I assume it has the built in circuitry to prevent an overcharge? a. One can't assume anything. b. But from what I read on that model, you plug it in and forget about it. To do that, it would have a proper charge circuit.

SOURCE: Draining battery

This camera has had problems with the primary switch block faulting. The camera will power up all by itself when unattended and drain the battery. Another symptom would be the battery refuses to charge fully because the camera must remain in the "OFF" mode for the charge process to begin. Sony in Laredo, TX is replacing these controls at little or no cost, I would call them to see if they will repair this for you. Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Sharp Camcorder VL-NZ100E battery doesn't seem to charge

2.7 volts is too low. Usually camcorders use battery at least 6 volts. Problems with rechargeables especially NiCds and NiMH, a cell will be shorted. for 6 volts pack, there are 5 cells in series (5 pcs x 1.2 volts with load , 1.35 no load). If you are measuring only 2.7 volts, it is highly possible that 3 cells are dead. As for the charger, if the same charger is used to power the camcorder and you said the the camcorder operates using the adaptor, this means that the charger is OK. You can ZAP the battery back to life but I will not recommend. It can be dangerous. If you can buy the battery, I suggest you do it since the old battery, even when zapped, will not provide enough juice anymore.

SOURCE: Battery Charge Light not working & can't display battery info

This sounds similar to a problem I had. I brought the camera in under warranty and the repair shop fixed it. They shop text is cryptic.
Problem: Camera light keeps flashing, not charge
Solution: Troubleshoot to intermittent switch block control, replace with new one, test OK.

SOURCE: i charged battery while in camera and left

Will your camera power on with a spare battery or through the electrical adapter ? If so then your camera is fine and the problem is your battery!

This is why manufacturers always recommend to use the supplied batteries and recommended chargers only and not some third party junk. This is why you have batteries exploding on people they don't read the warnings.

Yes it is possible to damage your battery - perhaps your battery cannot take a charge - it is NOT normal to charge a battery for a week !

your battery needs a nominal voltage to remain healthy if you allow it to drain below that voltage you have reverse polarity and your battery is good for the garbage bin.

use the recommended charger from now on and get new batteries.

Camer will not power on


If your battery does not seem to charge, then you need to carry out some tests on the device, the battery and the charger. First you insert the battery into another cam corder then you try to charge, if it charges, then it means the battery is okay and if it does not charge, then it means the battery is bad and need to be replaced.
Then i will advice you take the charger and try to charge another device to see if it will work, if it works, then it means the charger is alright but if it does not then it means the charger is bad and need to be replaced.
Finally, test the camcorder by plugging a well tested charger and battery into it and trying to charge it, if it does not charge then the problem is from the camcorder.

Will not turn on with good battery.


Can you not detach the lead to the charger unit, and plug that directly to the camcorder, to see if its the actual camcorder at fault ?
Near the camcorders power socket, you should see a small picture telling you what power the cam uses - usually around 7 volts, centre positive connection jack plug, at around 900mAh. As long as you get the voltage close, and have enough amps behind it, it will still work safely.
Camcorders are rarely fussy about the exact voltage, but you should never go above 9 volts unless its needs more. Most take the internal power down to 5 volts inside anyway.
The batteries do have a tiny non-replaceable internal fuse, triggered by voltage spikes or overheating, and if that goes, it usually means buying a new battery :(
Batteries can go at any time from the very first second they are used. I've bought many, and had a few that didn't last 2 months from brand new. One high-end type lasted over 9 hours on its very first charge :) and then never worked again after that :(

No power from batteries and the camcorder will


I have the same problem. The battery is charged, but the camcorder will only work while plugged in. It worked for a while on the 1st day, Christmas, then it would only turn on while plugged into the charger and would stay on after charger was disconnected. Today it will only stay on if plugged into charger.

First: put your battery in your friends camcorder and use ur friends charger to charge the battery.
Then put your battery back into your camcorder to see if it works.

If the battery works then this eliminates the battery as a problem.

Next plug your charger into your friends camcorder to see if it will power the camcorder without battery, if this works then the problem will most likley be the connector in your camcorder.

If this does not work then the problem will be the plug or the charger.

Next plug your friends charger into your camcorder if it does not work this will verify that the problem is the connector on your camcorder

Charging Panasonic NV-DS38


Yes that is correct.

You have to use a separate charger as the "DC in" socket is on the camera body underneath the battery.
