SONY DCR200 CAMCORDER turn off when I Opend th LCD but it's working when attached with AC power Cable


More than likely the camera has an internal problem in the power supply section. There is an electronic switching circuit that switches between the battery input and the DC input coming from the AC adapter. Your camera requires professional servicing. One such place is AVRepair.com Home Services Consumer Camcorder Sony

On screen saying re attach power source, no function.


Does it have the battery in it? If so, plug the powercord in to charge. If not, put the battery in it. If it still doesn't work with battery and power cord: I would think either the battery or the powercord is not working properly. Most likely the powercord.

Sometimes the batteries for these camcorders just go bad. There's nothing you can do to fix the battery itself, but you can find them really cheap online. If you don't think the battery is bad, and you just don't know how to charge the battery, you can find the manual on Panasonic's site. You can click support, and there will be a place to enter the model number. It will be on the camera, probably on the bottom. If you enter a model number that doesn't fetch results, try a different number (or combination of letters and numbers) until it does find results for your camera. Most of these small cameras have a small door, or attached cap that you have to pop up and open with your fingernail (they are small, so look carefully, most likely around the bottom or back of the camera). Plug the charger in and wait to see if the battery charges. If it does, the Palmcorder will stop turning off a few seconds after you turn it on.

My old Panasonic Palmcorder IQ shows a red light in both switch positions-camera and VCR. Maybe yours has red for camera and green for VCR so you could tell them apart. I found that the Panasonic battery that came with the camera was the cheapest kind with the least charging time. I bought other batteries, they were good for a while, but now, many years later, they won' t hold a charge. Since I am only recording inside of my house, I have resorted to using the AC wall socket for power. I have to take the battery out of the camera. I found a power plug-in hole (like ones on cell phones) in the battery compartment. I also found one of these holes on my battery charger. My camera came with a double ended power plug. I plug one end into my camera and the other end into the battery charger. I plug the charger power cord into the wall outlet, and I have power to my older camera. Maybe you can find this double ended power cord at a store or on line.

Did you know that there are 2 kinds of batteries? Some have memories and others do not rely on a memory. The ones with memories have to be fully discharged or they will only charge a little, and keep charging less and less each time they are charged. The ones without the memory can be charged fully without being discharged fully. Check into battery information on line to get more information. Maybe you can get the non-memory kind.

Jvc HDD battery communication error


Did your battery came with a small, short cable? If yes:
- turn off the camera
- plug the cable in the camera but DO NOT attache the battery to the camera
- turn on the camera
- if the camera is working, than the battery is working.
- tape off with electrical tape the battery terminals - all of them. Now you can attach the battery to the camera.

Re-attach the power source flashing


I had the same problem. I took off the battery pack and wiped the it down with a kleenex as well as the socket in the camera where the battery pack connects to. This fixed the problem.
