Camcorder won't turn on... Not again!

For some reason if I don't use my camcorder for about a year, when I decide to want to use it, it just won't turn on. What's the deal? I'm getting sick of this.

Batteries Batteries,

When u know you are gonna use the corder for a long time, you need to ensure that the battery is fully discharged.

If you store it in a charged state the battery looses it ability to hold power

Won't turn on


I had this same problem! Scoured the web and found no solution. This is what I did to fix it...

Remove battery. Unplug charger. Press and hold the power button for 20 - 30 seconds. While still holding the power button, re-insert the battery and/or plug in the charger. Voila! Came back to life and worked like nothing ever happened.

I also did the same thing with the record button, but it was the power button that got the result.

Hope this helps!

My sony handycam dcr-hc21 won't respond to touch on the touchscreen anymore. I can't rewind, play, etc. I also don't know where the reset button is on this model, or how to calibrate. ...


This is usually caused by a defective LCD module or a defective flex cable that connects the LCD to the camera. I recommend replacing them both at the same time. The LCD / Touchscreen module is no longer available from Sony at a reasonable price for this Model. However, I have a limited supply of them in stock as well as an aftermarket supplier with hundreds of them.

Hi!

Almost sure there is nothing wrong with your battery, charger and camcorder.
The battery loose power even when doing nothing, especially when it is a NiMH type.

Please charge the battery for a couple of hours and try again to start the camcorder.

Good luck!

I have a Cannon Camcorder and the cassette won't eject out


Tape mechanism problems can be quite complicated. This will require disassembling the camera to repair the tape mechanism and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.

Fix my camcorder


put your camcorder to your ear closely & turn it on - if you don ' t hear a whirring sound ? ( or instead sounds like a slinky toy ) your tape is wrapped around the heads and the protect circuits are trying to save the tape ; - - moisture can cause this problem if the camera was not in dry or air conditioned environment ( or was left in a car trunk , etc . ) removing a stuck tape is fairly easy but should only be attempted in a clean , dry environment ( if your heads are accidentally damaged , the repairs will be fairly expensive ) ;

No power after charging a new battery


Bummer, especially after getting a new battery. Based on what you have described, it appears that there is something definitely fubar with the camcorder. Only thing is that you have to decide if a repair on the unit is cost effective. Given the high price of proprietary parts and labor it might be better for you to just go shopping and walk away from this unit.

If it is pretty old or you have kinked, it you may need another one * Is the camera in DV mode? It should be. (Usually in the menu options somewhere) * Have read ALL of Apples help topics on this If your good with all the above: 1. Close iMovie 2. Delete all iMovie plist files for iMovie located in Home/Library/Preferences 3. Plug the camera in to the wall (electricity) 4. Make sure you have a good firewire cable and plug it in to the Mac from the camera 5. Turn off your camera 6. Reset your pram 7. When the Mac is booting, power on the camera 8.

Can't see the DVD camcorder icon on my desktop.


No connection --- Simply connect USB cable between DVD Camcorder and PC. No power --- Simply turn on. Mode switch is not DVD mode --- Simply set the mode switch to Movie or Photo mode, not SD mode. The wrong UDF device driver, other than the one provided with the DVD Camcorder, was installed – Simply install the UDF driver that came with DVD Camcorder.
