Question about Canon MV630i Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Problems after 1 year of no usage

My MV630i lay idle for about a year. The battery would not then recharge so I bought a new battery. I charged it up a day or so ago - red flickering light turned to a constant red so that seemed to work OK - but then when I switch it on the screen remains grey and the canon logo etc does not seem to boot up. Through both the screen and the viewfinder all I can see is the grey blankness.

I notice there's a small "button" battery within the camcorder itself. do I need to repalce this or is the "fault something more sinister.

Any help appreciated.

    The small battery only keeps the date and time.



    What happens when you use the camera in the electrical outlet?

I would take into a shop and have them look at it. There appears to be something in the electronics that isn't comming up if it isn't working with a new battery or when it's plugged into an electrical outlet.

How do I charge the battery and how long does it last ?


Usually you just put it into the charger that should have come with your camera. If your Camera has an automatic charge feature built-in (you'll have to plug it into a wall outlet via the supplied adapter), and your battery is still dead... buy a new battery! They don't cost much! Batteries are generally good for approx. two-three years depending on how long you use your camera, and how many times they have been recharged! Newer Batteries are constructed better and can be recharged many more times before they need to be replaced.

Hi luismasramir ,

Seems to be the case where the battery is not fully recharged , Please follow the below steps :-

  1. Please make sure that you charge your battery fully , till the time you see an indicator for the battery being fully charged , or may be you see an icon in the display screen with the charge status.
  2. As far the 6.30 hr duration that you have mentioned, this duration reflects the time that you have left for total recording space on your disk or memory card depending on your current source for recording.
  3. The above duration is not to be confused with the battery usage time.
Hope his helps ...:)

My Canon 2000x will not recharge. It was OK for a few months, recharged regularly, but I can't get anywhere with it now.


Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.

The best way to proceed is to buy a new battery, then try to charge it. If it charges and the camera works, problem solved.

If it doesn't charge, then maybe you need a new charger. The battery will not be wasted though, as it is always handy to have a spare.

I usually search Amazon for cheap replacements of these items.

    DXG-301V Power won't stay on


    laistrop,

    The fact that your camera was not used for a year and assuming the batteries remained in the camera (uncharged?) after that long a period of time, it would be very likely the batteries have deteriorated and may need to be replaced. The first thing to try is charging the batteries if you have not already done so. Plug in the charger and allow at least 12 hours for the batteries to charge. If the camera still will not work, the original batteries have very likey lost their ability to hold a charge and will have to be replaced. To test this, without spending too much money, try inserting 4 Alkaline AA batteries in the camera (observe the battery polarity marked on the flip-top battery cover). If the camera works, you should replace the batteries with fresh NiMh rechargeable batteries and charge them before you attempt to use the camera. Allow at least 12 hours for the initial charge unless the battery manufacturer suggests otherwise. I would not recommend using any form of "rapid" or "quick" charge rechargeable battery. If you do, you will be paying extra for a convenience you will not use, unless you plan to use an external quick charger, since the camera is not equipped to support rapid battery charging.

    Flip video won't charge


    If you look on the bottom of the camera there is a button that slides from a locked to an unlocked position. Slide it to unlocked and then slide down the back of the camera (the side with the lens) there is a removeable rechargeable battery pack. Remove it for a moment and then put it back in. Try plugging back into the USB port. This should work.

    Battery life?


    Here is a replacement source

    The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

    If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

    You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.

    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.
