    I too have this problem. I have a Sony Handycam TRV37 and haven't been able to use it for over 5 years. Warranty was over after 1 year and that's when it decided to no longer hold a charge. I took it to a shop that usually can fix camcorder problems and they told me it was more expensive to fix than replace.

I think, battery is not being charged in camera.

  1. Plug the charger in AC out let.
  2. hook up with camera, check camera wroks with charger,
  3. set camera power button in OFF / Standby position,
  4. attach battery to camera and check any Charge-Light lit?
  5. If yes, leave it on charge up to 4-5 hours for new battery.

I was given a nice sony handycam camcorder. i was told the battery is probley dead


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

Sony ccd-f55 Handycam


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 ds4190@excite.com

How Do I Edit the Film?


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 ;)

Won't hold a charge


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. ;)

How do i recharge the batteries?


the camcorder should come with a cord to plug into a power point, it will charge once plugged in. Normally they take 3 hours to charge with a main power supply.
