it is a standered USB mini B ? Here is a picture "http://www.usbcable.com/94-3996.jpg" They can be carefully replaced or repaired, I can even do that. My E-mail is Jaws8472@aol.com Let me know your thoughts, that is the only thing I can think of that would help is a repair/replacement.

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.
