It's HOT sony handycam clicking sound when plugged in

My camcorder is clicking and sounds like it is trying to rewind when I plug it into the charger.  I just picked it up from Best Buy for service.  The lens motor was broken and they replaced it but now this is  an new problem obviously related to the service it just had. 
Do you have any ides? Thanks

I would take it back to Best Buy and tell them what happened. They will probably replace the camera or give you a store credit.

Hi i have a Sony hdr CX550 handycam camcorder


Most mics will work if the plug fits the socket on camera and it fits on the hot shoe okay, I never use Sony mics on my Sony camera, you end up paying for the name, not the item.

This sounds like a power problem, the fast forward needs quite a lot of power, keep camera on charge over night.

A pinging sound whenever i try to record something or rewind the cassette


It sounds like there's a problem with the tape loading mechanism. The first thing you should try is seeing if the camcorder will allow you to run a head cleaner through it (probably not the problem, but something everyone should do regularly, but most people don't). If that's not the issue, then it's probably something that you can't fix yourself. You should have information in the box that tells you where to send it to for repair. Good Luck.

Draining battery


This camera has had problems with the primary switch block faulting. The camera will power up all by itself when unattended and drain the battery. Another symptom would be the battery refuses to charge fully because the camera must remain in the "OFF" mode for the charge process to begin. Sony in Laredo, TX is replacing these controls at little or no cost, I would call them to see if they will repair this for you. Hope this helps you.
