This is usually caused by a failed component in the power circuit within the camera and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it’s not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired 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.

Even with absolutely fresh batteries properly installed, I keep getting a "change the batteries" message, and then the camera shuts down. It worked fine for two years!


Peter,
Try using a Q-tip and some alcohol to clean the contacts inside the battery housing of the camera - it's possible there's enough build up to prevent a clean connection.

Thank you.

This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (DV) connection. Some mini-DV cameras only use the USB connection for stills (if they have one) and can only download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file.

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. With desktop Windows PCs, you can fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This comes with a driver for the card. If your laptop doesn't have a Firewire socket, then you are probably stuck.

How to chrge it?


You will need a charger like the one listed below. Just remove the battery and place it on the charger.

CA-920 Compact Power Adapter
This is the standard charger and power source for the GL2. It will charge one battery at a time.

I turned on my dc100 today and it powered on, then went off. It will not power back on, even with the adapter attached. Earlier I was getting a "set date and time" message


sounds like the power adapter is failing, have you got a multy-meter to test if your gettin a voltage out of the adapter, the adapter should have an output voltage printed on the side, Also if the adapter is faulty it wont charge the battery so in turn wont fire up your cam it will just show on for a few seconds till the battery drains again. if you take your adapter to the local electrical store they will fined you one thats the same amperage/voltage and the correct polarity.

Canon mv800i fault


OK after searching the net to fix this problem and no one having the answer I decided to fix it my self.
My Canon MV 800i cam had the same fault to I took it to bits. Inside there’s the cams main board that has loads of ribbon cable connecting on to it from its bits like lens, power supply, viewfinder , cassette deek. I unplugged all of these and removed its main board and cleaned all the ribbon cables connecting end with isopropyl alcohol, you can use most electrical cleaners should do the some trick. Then just reassembled the cam and tested all fixed
Give that a go and see how you get on
