SOURCE: 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 :(

Apparently, the camera needs more than the 5 volts that the USB port provides (or the battery is empty). The power jack on the camera is located in a different place than the USB jack. Take a look:

The DC port will need to be replaced and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Unfortunately, only video and/or pictures from your (SD Memory) Card can be transferred (via the USB cable) to your computer. Video/pictures from a disk is not accessible to your computer.
So, you may wish to try to playback the video (on the camcorder) with the output to a DVD recorder (using the AV cables from the camcorder to the DVD recorder or a VCR recorder). This assumes you have a DVD recorder (or VCR recorder) that will take the RGB input from the camcorder. Connect it up just like you're viewing the playback on a TV monitor.

I have a sony pc 100 dv cam. I am trying to find the right cable to connect it to my mac. I need what ever sony uses one one end and usb on the other.


your camcorder doesnt support usb connection.although it came with a pc serial cable,its the cable used for memory stick picture transfer, along with it comes a serial port adaptor for the memory stick and ac adaptor for serial adaptor. of course even if you lost this accessories you can still transfer pics from the ms using a memory card reader which works basically the same way. for videos on the tape you would just need a firewire or an ilink (ieee1394) cable. almost all mac computers support this connection.it's the dv in/out jack on the camcorder with an i symbol.upper most jack on the camcorder jack's location.check your mac to find out what cable you need.the unit uses a 4pin ilink port so you need a 4pin ilink cable at one end and the other end should match of course, the firewire port on your mac computer.should be a plug and play connection.you can use imovie software for video capturing.hope this helps.thanks :)

When I transfer videos from canon fs100 into my pc, it wouldn't transfer any sound. thank you


I also am facing the same problem. Even the videos can be played in PC, then don't give any sound at all. And I have no idea about it too. Really stuck at that point. Another thing is; how to disconnect the camcorder from PC although I remove the hard disk of it via safely remove, as it always warn "PC connected, WHILE THE CAMCORDER IS CONNECTED TO A PC DO NOT DISCONNECT THE USB CABLE OR POWER SOURCE, CANNOT TURN OFF POWER OR CHANGE MODES" in its display LCD. So, What I am gonna do???? Actually for transfering the images and videos from your camcorder to PC is; you need to install PIXELA ImageMixer 3 SE first, which is aldy in your kit. Then, you can edit and browse the videos and images from your camcorder.
P.S: If somebody knows how to solve these, please share the solutions. Thanks! Am I wrong to purchase that Canon FS200 because of its external audio jack(whereas others don't have that access), compact design and reasonable pricing ?

Cameras can't upload if low on power. Charge batteries or plug in the ac adaptor to an outlet and try again.

I want to transfer DV footage from my camcorder to my laptop but do not have a fire wire port on my lap top, or a notebook adaptor slot - is there anything I can do?


several options. one is to transfer the material to your desktop then to the laptop. or you can go to radio shack and purchase an adaptor that will allow you to plug your sd card into a usb port. assuming, of course, that you use an sd card

Digital stills


The panasonic PV-L750 comes with an 8 MB Compact Flash card for storing digital still pictures.

To remove this flash card from the camcorder, open the cassette loading area using the "Tape Eject" button. The card is located inside this area. Find the "Card Eject" button to remove the flash card.

You will have to purchase a USB compact flash card READER to view and/or transfer the pictures to your PC's hard drive. You can purchase one at any computer supply store, or buy one online if you like.

Once you've transfered the images from the USB flash card reader to your PC, you can view and/or edit them with your favorite graphics image editing software.

Good luck!

Connecting analong camcorder to computer


The only Analog camcorder that has a USB Connection for transferring pictures or video is the SC-L770. The SC-L770 can transfer video (live or recorded) and still photos through the USB connection. You can also transfer audio using the audio cable provided. After installing the driver and software, you can begin transferring data using the software provided. Connecting to a PC 1. Connect a USB cable to the USB port on the PC. 2. Connect the other end of the USB cable into the proper terminal on the camcorder. (USB jack) 3. Connect the audio cable to the Line input jack of the PC. If the PC has no Line input jack, connect the audio cable to the MIC input jack. In this case, however, a noise may be produced depending on the PC. Notes: * If you disconnect the USB cable from the PC or the camcorder while transferring, the data transmission will stop and the data may be damaged. * If you connect the USB cable to a PC via a USB HUB or simultaneously connect the USB cable along with other USB devices, the camcorder may not work properly. * In this case, remove the other USB devices from the PC and reconnect the camcorder. Some other Analog Camcorders have a snapshot mode which allows you to take a still photo with your camcorder. However, you cannot transfer these to a computer unless you purchase additional hardware such as a capture card. Some capture cards have analog a/v inputs which will allow you to use the a/v outputs on the camcorder to connect to your pc and transfer images and video. You can purchase a capture card at most computer and electronics stores. Samsung does not support capture cards.
