Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV320 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Power Hello: One of the prongs on the inside (bottom right) of the power supply to the camera DC in is missing, therefore; I cannot use my charger or direct power on this camera. Would you recommend sending this off for repair or trying to dig up another camera this old in a local shop as cheap replacement to play and dub off extensive library of family footage?

Dell lattitude cpx charging pin and - TERMINALS


What? Is it time to wake up?

Oh yeah, Dell Latitude CPX,

http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Latitude-Notebook-650-MHz-Pentium/dp/B00005UJYF

AC adapter example for above,

http://www.prontocharger.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=d1161

DC Power Jack example,

http://www.all-power-jack.com/Dell/Dell-Latitude-CPx.html

I see the dilemma. The plug from the AC adapter has 3 socket holes, and the DC Power Jack has 3 prongs.

DC electricity has a Positive connection, and a Negative connection.

To find out which socket holes are for Positive, and Negative, let's look again at the DC Power Jack,

http://www.all-power-jack.com/Dell/Dell-Latitude-CPx.html

The Top view shows the jack upside down, and turned around. (In relation to how it mounts on the motherboard )

The bottom left view shows the jack primarily how it sits, (Mounted), on the motherboard.

The bottom right view shows the jack turned over, laying on it's front.
Also laying over to it's right side.

Note the three prongs. (Flat bladed pins )
The one in the middle is Positive.
The two outer prongs are Negative.

Looking at the bottom Left view, the Top prong is Positive, and the two bottom prongs are Negative.

Match it up to the plug on the AC adapter cable.

Going to test the Voltage coming out? (20 Volts)
The red Positive probe lead goes into the top socket hole, in the plug.
The black Negative lead goes in either bottom socket hole.

What if I'm wrong?

A Digital multimeter will just show a negative value. -20
An Analog multimeter's needle will go down towards the 0, instead of towards 20 Volts. (DC)

Just switch the probe leads around.

For additional questions, or if I am way off base, post back in a Comment.

Dell laptop latitude C640 model pp01L will not charge or boot


1) Check the AC adapter (Charger) to see if it is putting out 20 Volts DC.

Use a multimeter with the Function knob set to DC Voltage. If just a symbol, the symbol is a dotted line over a solid line.

If there is a multiple setting for the Function knob with DC Voltage, set it to the 0 to 50 Volt (DC) scale.

If you do not have one, or access to one, an economical yet reliable multimeter, can be purchased for as little as $10. (Less in some places)
A multitude of stores carry them. An auto parts store is but one example.
Analog or digital doesn't matter.

http://www.laptoppartsnow.com/uhsdfsrzdgir779.html

This is the DC Power Jack. May be labeled as DC IN on the laptop,

http://www.discountelectronics.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=14640

I want to show you it, and have you look at the cable end, that is coming from the AC adapter (Charger) TO the laptop.
(To the DC Power Jack)

See the 3 pins? Arranged in a triangle? Note the socket holes in the cable end.
The pin that sits all by itself on Top, is the Positive pin.
The two pins down below are Negative, or Ground, pins.

The Positive (Red) probe lead of the multimeter, is inserted into the single socket hole, in the cable end.
The Negative (Black) probe lead can go into any of the two bottom socket holes.

Read very near 20 Volts?
Have an assistant wiggle both cables. First the one from the charger To the laptop, then the one from the charger to the wall receptacle. (Or surge protector, actually)

2) Charger checks out?
Go to the DC Power Jack.

You may wish to skip checking the charger out first, and check the DC Power Jack, if you Know that the charger is good.

Battery removed see if you can wiggle one of those 3 pins around.
Be gentle, use a pencil if available.
ANY perceptible movement means a Problem.

Looking back at the second link above showing the DC Power Jack, note the metal prongs coming down towards the bottom of the jack.
There are 4.
2 on each side.

Note the 3 long pins sticking down towards the back of the jack.

The 4 outside prongs made from the outer case, are used to anchor the jack into place. They go down through holes in the motherboard, and are soldered on the opposite side.

There may be Ground attached to the case through these prongs also.

The two pins sticking down towards the Back of the jack, are also Ground pins. (Negative)
The single pin by itself is Positive.

A) IF, any of the pins wiggle, the jack is broken, and needs to be replaced.

B) IF, the outer shell of the jack wiggles, the jack May just need to be soldered back into place.

(Could also be an indication of more damage than appears to the eye)

Same thing for the single Positive pin solder joint.

Charger checks out, DC Power Jack checks out, the problem may be a bad power sensor chipset.

This chipset senses when the laptop battery needs a full charge, or a trickle charge, or no charge.

This means it also will sense when the laptop is to be run straight off of the charger, and not the battery.

Usually means motherboard replacement, unless you have access to the chip, and means to replace it. (Soldering tools, and technique)

Appreciate it if you would keep me apprised as to what you find.

I have an Acer Aspire One and when I plug the charger in I have to spin it or wiggle it or both to get the battery to charge. Once I have it in position it generally stays on charge, but if the cable is...


It could be either one Sarah.

The AC adapter's (Charger) cable, or the DC Power Jack where the AC adapter plugs into the laptop.

This is an example of the DC Power Jack not installed,

http://www.laptopjacks.com/view_part/Acer-Aspire-ONE-AOA150-ZG5-DC-Power-Jack-AC351816.html

(You can click on the three views of the jack to enlarge)

1) Check the DC Power Jack to see if it's in good repair.

Battery removed use a small flat tipped screwdriver, and Gently see if you can move the Center Pin around in the jack.
See if the Center Pin will move side to side a small amount. There is supposed to be No perceptible movement.

Referring back to the closeup photos of the DC Power Jack, the flat blade-like prongs are upside down, in relation to how the jack sits on the motherboard.

The flat prongs go down through the motherboard, and are soldered to the motherboard.
If the center pin of the jack is stationary, but the jack as a unit moves around, one or more solder joints, (Connections) for the flat prongs may be cracked.

The repair consists of completely disassembling the laptop, removing the broken DC Power Jack, and installing a new one.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name (One) it may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Took 12 seconds just now for full download)

No perceptible movement of the DC Power Jack? Suspect the cable of the AC adapter right near it's plug. (Plug that plugs into the DC Power Jack)

The camcorder has no power and will not turn on either with the battery or power cord.


The most likely culprit is the power cord. it is probably not supplying power therefore you have a camcorder with a dead battery. A simple volmeter. will test the output of the charger (should be DC 8.4V 1.5A). If it is not putting out the correct volts Then you van get one from Amazon for like ten bucks. http://www.amazon.com/HQRP-Replacement-compatible-DCR-TRV103-DSR-PD100A/dp/tech-data/B002OVMKE2

I have a CMZ984 coleman portable rechargeable bug zapper.I have lost the manuel and charger for it.It is 4 watts.The company that made it for Coleman has gone out of business.It is about 2 years old.What...


The CMZ984 takes 6 volts DC at about 850 ma or 0.85 Amp. The problem is finding a plug that will attach to the Coleman charging port. Use the Radio Shack universal DC power supply. This is a little unit that comes with an assortment of plugs and has a number of switches on the Radio Shack DC power supply. (1)-Find a plug inside of the Universal DC power supply that fits without forcing, (2)-set the voltage to 6 volts and (3)-the polarity to "+". When the universal power supply is plugged into the bug zapper and the universal DC power supply set at 6 volts, turn on the BUG ZAPPER. If the lights inside turns on when the battery is dead then you probably have all switches set correctly. At yard sales, this UNIVERSAL power supply sells for about $1. It comes with a number of different plugs. Don't forget to write the voltage and polarity on the bottom of the bug zapper for the next time.

My PC won't run with ac /dc power!


Hello. There is a hardware failure with the laptop not the AC charger. AC chargers have some range of protections of their own. If the power requirements of the laptop are bigger then what the charger can handle, the charger will turn off. Also other parameters can bring the charger offline. In your case, you have a problem with a small chip, the battery charge controller unit, witch regulates the amount of current required to propperly charge the battery. When this thing fails, the charging requirements for the battery are reported rong and the AC charger is forced to give more power then necesary. This results in disconnection of the AC charger ( an internal fail safe of the AC charger) and the laptop to swich back to battery power. When the laptop is turned off, it can charge the battery because the power requirements are low, having all processor, main board, hard disk etc turned off. Therefore the AC charger can handle the load. However you will need to have it checked by a service center as it is a hardware fault. Both AC charger and laptop needs that check. The charge controll circuit needs to be replaced probably. It will be a somewhat expensive repair. Don't buy any other battery untill you have the laptop checked. For more aditional info please post back. PS. Sorry for my bad english, I am from Romania, it is pretty hard for me to explain tehnical stuff in english.
