Question about Sony DCR-SR220D, DCR-SR290E, DCR-SR300, and DCR-SR300C Battery (Premium Japanese Cells, 1300mAh, 5-Y...
If you have owned it less then a year I would have it repaired under warranty. If over a year I would decide whether repair or replacement is your best option. There are many independent repair facilities online that give free repair estimates. You can also contact sony. It sounds like the heat may have damaged some internal components and there is no easy fix but needs to be repaired by a professional.

As noted by you the camcorder fuse is blown but this can happen if there was a malfunction of the adapter which could have resulted in failure of power section devices in the camcorder. Now the fuse is always linked with the battery and the power and so a total power off is seen to be a failure in the board. If you are technically able you can open the section on the battery pack side, remove the covers to check the front end power section, the battery to the adaptor socket where the fuse is located. if the fuse blows off then you have problems which need attention. it can be failure of regulator in the power, a safety surge protection or failure in drive circuit.
Disconnect sections to the drives, isolate and switch on to confirm. test the power to the processor, if absent check the +5 volt regulator.
If beyond you need to get help.
