Question about GE Video Cameras

1 Answer

I have a camcorder built in 1990 that has not been used for many years. The battery charger indicator light does not light up. The power light does. The battery had been left in the camcorder all those years so I assume it is worthless. My question is how can I remover the tape cassette even tho the camcorder cannot be turned on?

Base from the description of your problem and since you want to take the tape out from it but since the unit is not powering ON that will be not possible unless the unit is dismantle.

SO if you really like to do that you can ask someone that has dismantle a unit like that to avoid damage on the tape that you want to remove from it.

Tip

Charging your power chair or scooter the correct way can make them last


Whenever you need to charge your power chair or scooter get into the habit of charging overnight. The battery level indicator lights will tell you if your chair or scooter needs charging. Whenever the lights are down into the yellow and especially if they are in the red. If you have the off-board charger, plug the charger into the charger port in the front of your joystick and then plug the charger into the wall socket or turn the on/off switch on and let it charge overnight. When you get up in the morning the charger should have a red light(power) and a green light illuminated (indicating fully charged) Always turn the charger off or unplug it from the wall socket before you unplug it from the chair or scooter. Never have the power on to the charger when you plug or unplug it from your chair or scooter. Whenever you get new batteries always give your batteries a full charge before use and then if you use the chair daily charge it every night. If you do not use your chair or scooter daily charge it at least once a week. Never leave the charger plugged in and on for more than 24 hours. Your batteries should last you 3-4 years if you charge them correctly.

Battery or Charger bad?


If you persistently leave the batteries discharged, it is unlikely that they will be able to hold a full charge. You should re-charge your batteries at least once a month, even if unused. Put it on your calendar. BTW 2 years old is hardly 'brand new'.

My Sony Handycam DCR-HC30E mini DV is not working


In many cases I found DC Jack defective in this model and resulted does not charge battery through ac charger nor power up directly with ac charger.
I would suggest to check ac charger and battery on similar model Sony camcorder and I think your camcorder has DC jack problem thats why camera is not getting power from ac charger.

Panasonic PV-GS19 Mini DV Digital wont turn on


I have about 2 dozen of these that my students use at my school and the power supplies are kept in a locked room only to be used by me. The reason? They get easily damaged. The little metal part that plugs into the back of camera is often the culprit. If the power supply/charger is pugged in and the metal tip at the other end touches anything metallic (keys, metal tripod, etc.), it will short out and render the unit useless. If the amber light doesn't go on on the charger, and you are sure you it properly connected to a power source, then my guess is that it's a damaged power supply. You can purchase a new one online at Panasonic Go to this link and click on the Parts locator link near the bottom of the page. http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/vProdSupportModel?storeId=15001&catalogId=13401&displayServiceCenter=false&displayPartsLocater=true&itemId=88739&catGroupId=25203&displayTab=A&surfModel=PV-GS19&surfCategory=Camcorders%20with%20SD

Can't charge the battery


# New batteries need to be drained by using the camcorder until the viewfinder indicates the battery is empty. Follow these steps: Once the battery has been drained, you may use the charger to recharge the battery. # Consult your manual for the amount of time the battery requires on the charger to get a full charge. # A full charge will be delivered by the charger. # Some camcorders have a Refresh feature, which will automatically drain the initial charge on the battery. This allows the battery to fully recharge.
