Question about Canon ES50 8mm Camcorder
My camera has a fully charged battery but the camera doesn't reckonize it so i have to use the power cord at all times. i have even bought two new batteries replaced the time date battery and i still cannot get it to understand the battery is there
There are a few possibilities. One of the contact pins on the camera may be dirty or bent. The wiring coming from the pins to the circuit board inside the camera may be broken. A fuse inside of the camera may be blown (if there is a separate fuse for battery power). The battery even though it was charging for many hours may still be drained because it's old or defective - check the battery voltage with a digital volt meter to verify, and for absolute verification you should check the battery voltage under load when it's plugged into the camera and the camera is switched ON - is the voltage more or less constant or did the battery get loaded down and voltage level is now way below spec? Those in my mind would be the first few things to check.
