Question about Sony GV-D1000 Mini DV VCR
Hi. Great machine, but today when I attempted to rewind a cassette that I had shot, I got the message on the screen, "For infoLITHIUM Battery Only." Once that message is displayed, the machine goes dark.
What's the solution to this one?
I was having the same problem with a sony GV-D1000 which I don't even use a battery with. I use an AC adapter. Someone suggested that the contacts might be dirty, so I unplugged the small connector that plugs into the back of the deck and wiped it hard with my t-shirt. It seems to work fine now. SO try cleaning the contacts (wherever your adapter or battery connects with the deck or camera.)

That just states to use a infolithium battery, so if you have a battery that is not a genuine sony battery for the unit this will be displayed at times if your battery indicator shows that there should have been more charge to the unit then charge the battery to full again and try again so the indicator is displaying the battery life correctly.
the InfoLithium is a lithium ion battery which can exchange data such as battery consumption with compatible electronic equipment.
your vcr only operates with the InfoLithium ion batteries, if you have tryed a different battery please get a genuine sony infolithium battery.
so if you charge and it happens again then see if you can find someone to use a voltage meter on the battery to make sure the battery is connecting properly to the unit and that there is no spikes in the batteries power.
