Question about Panasonic Palmcorder PV-DV52 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
Camera was in the closet for a while, brought it out to use and had it say "CLOCK BATTERY". I then charged as the manual says by directly connecting the camera to the charger, DC cord. Left this way for 4 hours.
Then popped in the battery, set the clock time which was blank.
Now there is no picture when recording. The control information such as battery level (full), zoom level, time, etc. show in the display but the picture from the camera is completely black.
Is there a "reset" button somewhere or a "magic phrase" I should speak over it? Or is it a dead camera?
Thanks for help on this!
best bet to deal with the battery replacement is to download the manual from panasonic and follow their guides, they usually instruct you on how to install the button batt ery at initial start up as this is what holds the date/time in memory when you are charging the main operating battery. go to the following link and enter your specific camcorder info: http://service.us.panasonic.com/operman/
regarding the power supply. You need 6 volt DC. but you need to know the polarity of the line feeding into the camera and match that from your power source, if you have the polarity backwards, you can ruin the camera. You can also cause problems if your external supply has too high of an Amperage rating as an excessive amperage can overheat your camera circuits. verify the amp rating of the camera and verify that the VCR dores not exceed that my more than a few amps.

The same thing happend to my computer when I dropped it. A friend fixed
it, but I'm not sure of what he did. I think it is a cable sending
information to the screen to tell it what to show that is broken.
If i'm right, the problem isn't so big, but unless you know something about videocameras, don't try it yourself!

SOURCE: Camera suddenly will not record
I had this.
Unscrew the bottom and take off the cover, one of the connections may be loose. Push every cable connection to make sure it's tight. This fixed the problem for me.

Once you turn off the camera and remove the batter, does it power on and if you press the off button does it go off ?
You need to know in which position was camera turned of.
So try turning it on in RECORD OR PLAY position.
It will work then...
