    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 bought a HP CA 350 digital camera of 10 Mpx I use Ni-Mh batteries of 2500 mAh (adjusted on the camera) and although the batteries are not exhausted it happens the camera to switch off previously...


Try new batteries which are not rechargeable and see if the camera works correctly. Ni-Mh batteries can cause problems. Firstly, a standard non-rechargeable battery will be 1.5V but rechargeable batteries are only 1.2V. So if your camera takes two batteries, it requires 3V, but is only getting 2.4V. The battery monitoring circuit in the camera will be looking at the voltage of the batteries to determine if the voltage is dropping to the point where the cammera cannot function. As the camera draws more current from the batteries during certain functions e.g. zoomingor charging the flash, the battery voltage can dip with rechargeable batteries and this may cause the camera to think that the batteries are running out of charge.

Take a look in your camera's menus. There should be a place where you can select rechargeable or non-rechargeable batteries. That setting enables or disables the battery charging circuit. If you are using rechargeable batteries, the camera must be set accordingly so that the battery charger will turn on. If you are using
Alkaline batteries such as Duracell or other types of non-rechargeable batteries the charger must be disabled. If you do not set that parameter correctly, you will get the symptoms you describe.

It says battery exausted even with new batteries


I beleive your batteries are of incorrect type or you need to set the type of the battery through menu. My favorite batteries are from Wal-mart: Energizer rechargeable Ni-Mh 2450mAh, (15 min recharging time) they fit any type of camera without setting the battery type through menu. Some incorrect type of batteries often damage the CCD. Ni-Mh Energizer never damages the CCD (black screen), while regular (non-rechargeable) Energizers may damage CCD in Sony S700 or similar cameras.

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 ;)
