My camcorder won't charge, should I just replace the batteries or is it rechargeable because I found a USB cable, is it for charging? Or for transferring videos to a computer or laptop?

The USB cable is not for charging, only for transferring. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then you must recharge them using a separate battery charger.

The VPC-S770R uses standard AA batteries. Chargers for rechargeable AA batteries should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Do NOT try to recharge non-disposable alkaline or lithium batteries. Also bear in mind that the camera itself is not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then they must be charged outside the camera using a separate battery charger.

Everytime i try to zoom my camera shuts off

Two possibilities here. The lens housing is damage, and when you try to zoom it is unable to do so. You would be more inclined to get a message about this as opposed to the camera powering down.
Second option is a low power situation. If you are using non rechargeable batteries, you might find they are not up to the task. I have found this with few cameras. If you are using rechargeable batteries, they may be end of life, and no longer packing the same punch that the once were.
Although rechargeable batteries have 1.2 volts instead of 1.5, they can have more power with higher capacity. I tend to use 18mAh or higher batteries in my camera, especially for zooming, but make sure to use the guidelines for charging and recharging these so they will last a long time.

There is often a small battery inside the unit or accessed from outside that holds the memory that the device was last set. Yours is defaulting to maximum zoom. And in fact it does.

Built-in Clock's Rechargeable Lithium Battery
To store the date/time in memory, the clock's rechargeable
lithium battery is integrated in the camcorder. While the
camcorder is connected to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger, or while the battery pack attached
to the camcorder continues to supply power, the clock's
rechargeable lithium battery is always charged. However,
if the camcorder is not used for approx. 3 months, the
clock's lithium battery will become discharged and the
date/time stored in memory will be lost. When this occurs,
first connect the camcorder to an AC outlet using the AC
Power Adapter/Charger for over 24 hours to charge the
clock's rechargeable lithium battery. Then perform the
date/time setting before using the camcorder.
Note that the camcorder can be used without setting the

You can try switching over to 2500 mAh Nickel Metal Hydride rechargeable batteries and you will see a difference.
Digital cameras with zoom lens need more power than what can be supplied by ordinary batteries.

The Ni-MH batteries are recommended for the active photographer. The NI-MH batteries are rechargeable, economical and work well in low temperatures.
