Batteries have a limited life even if they are constantly charged.
Leaving batteries in constant charge will limit their life by causing gas leakage. Once depleted, they must be replaced. There is also a small button battery that keeps unit memory up, if you do not use camera for months at a time, replace this battery also.
Ni-Cad batteries need to be refreshed ony once a month by discharging them fully, then recharging them fully for best performance to erase memory effect
If it is a CCD-F555 the battery charger is also the AC Power adapter. There is a switch that states VTR...switch to it and plug into the camera and it should work. Have you had any other problems with your camera. I got mine in Japan when I was stationed over there and it will play back the tapes; however, it will not show the camera in the viewfinder. I know the lens is working because it will autofocus. I just can't see it. My email address is email@example.com
Look for the output jacks on your camera, hook them to your computer's audio/video input. Try accessing the recording utility on the computer then upload footage through NTSC format. You can then edit the footage. If your camera and computer utilize S-video, use them for best resolution
My best solution, is to pull all power sources form the camera for 24 hours. If this does not work, then take the small screws surrounding the Tape housing, in order to try and get the tape out. Best of luck dude ;)
It's the battery, over time the amount of power that the battery can store diminishes, and the indicator will still show a full charge, even though it is not fully charged. try getting a new one, from sony, or a 3rd party supplier. ;)
