Have you charged your battery?

Your battery may need to be replaced. Radio Shack carries them for about $20 - $30 a piece depending on how long the life is in them.

I carry a few for my camcorder just for that reason. Then you will have a backup source.

    The battery in the memory only keep track of the date and time as well as the camcorder settings.



    It has to be the battery contacts if the batteries are fine. You might want to inspect them for buildup.



    You could check the back of the batteries too and see if theres carbon buildup or oxidation causing contact with the camcorder to occur. You have to be careful when you clean them as to get one contact at the time or you will cook the battery.



    If you have a test meter and the camera is plugged into the electrical outlet you could test the battery contact points to see if you are getting power to them.

    I have an identical problem. I purchased new batteries, checked voltage on camera contacts- still the camera wouldn't work on battery. BTW, what are two terminals identified as B and D on the battery? Thanks

How do i get the casette out of the canon mv700i ? i see a push button on the casette but it doesnt work.


You may need to have a charged battery pack attached to the camcorder (or use the mains power lead, if applicable), so that the camcorder has power to open the cassette door. You may even need to turn the camcorder on. These are safety refinements so that the eject button does not accidentally open the door, leading to possible loss of cassette or damage to the camcorder itself.

I went to charge my canon FS100 camcorder than went to turn it on and it not working now what can be the problem?


have the same prob this morning, check the charging unit for the serial no. (will begin with CA) mine is CA590E, the 590 is a known problem to cannon, it will either discharge the battery pack (pray this is the fault) or it will internally damage the camcorder. mine is only 18 months old used a max of maybe 10 times. I will reply again this afternoon when i've tried a new battery charger, just waiting for my cannon dealer to open.
