Re: Generic batteries possible?

Yes, as Samsung puts the same batteries in the shell that everyone else does. Samsung does not manufacture their own batteries.

Re: Generic batteries possible?

Generic batteries can be used with your Samsung Camcorder, but we recommend using original Samsung parts and accessories.

I have a sony hdv 1080i camcorder. it works on mains power but will not work from a fully charged battery. Can anyone help suggest a solution?


Are these new batteries or old ones? If they are old it is possible that they will show as full but not have enough current to operate the device. If the batteries are over three years old or have been charged more that 300 times that is a distinct possibility. Also check the battery contacts on the device to make sure that they are not dirty. Clean with a pencil eraser.

Battery Removal


While pressing the "batt" button, slide the battery all the way up, then pull it away from the back of the unit.

Please mark as solved.

Camcorder (used only twice)now says communication error


Try using the orijinal JVC battery, sometimes compatible batteries cause this kind of problems.

JVC GR-D350U Digital Video Camera "Communication Error"


Just found a workaround for the "cheap battery" problem. The problem is that there is some circuitry in the more expensive JVC batteries that the generics don't have. When this isn't detected by the camcorder, it won't function. It's a neat trick to make you buy the proprietary battery. Also suspecting that with the JVC battery, if the circuitry gets fried for some reason, the battery will no longer work. Well, the generic battery I have has a plug in the back of it so you can charge it with the JVC factory supplied charger. There was also a jumper cord supplied with the camcorder. Plug this in the back of your cheap battery, plug the other end into your DC port on your camera, and voila! You're in business. Downsides are that you have a short cord between the battery and camcorder and the battery indicator won't work so you'll need a spare.

Not receiving power from the battery, but getting it from the power adapter


Check for corrosion on the battery contacts, If you find some clean it using a pencil eraser. Otherwise you're looking at an internal malfunction that prevents the cam to draw power from the batteries. Some transistor needs replacing, if you can get to a lab that has experience working on these, shouldn't be too expensive. Good luck
