Re: Is the battery dead?

Batteries can and will eventually die. Proper charging and discharging will prolong the life of your battery.

Should my jvc videomovie gr-ax7 work on a half charged battery or do the battery's have to be charged up to there maximum?


I have always understood that it is 'best practice' to fully charge the batteries for electronic equipment. If they are continually only half charged, they can develop a 'memory' and no longer take a full charge.
The other criterion, of course, is that a fully-charged battery will last longer in use, and not let you down at a crucial point when filming.

My memorex mcc228rsblk camcorder wont charge. when i put it my computer to charge and when it charges up i unplug it from the usb but it wont come on


It is possible your battery is dead, or the camera is no longer able to charge from the battery.
Are you able to verify that the battery has a charge when unplugged?

Hi i have a sony dcr-pc3 my wife bought it in 2000 and it never holds a charge the longest we get is about 10 minutes we bought a new battery and have just bought a new charger same old...


Well if you have bought the right battery and the proper charger this sounds very odd, did the amp hr and every say the same details on the battery & charger as the old one? when you charge the camera how long was it till you used the camera? as Sony cameras lose around 30% charge per week, I know because I have a Sony still camera and movie, both lose charge, my still camera goes flat in 3 weeks after a full charge with no use at all, so they are never good bits of equipment with batterys.

Battery life?


Here is a replacement source

The batteries are covered under warranty for three years. Sony batteries are know for not keeping a good charge after a few years.

If there not holding a charge, they wouldn't appear on the LCD screen at all. I the AC power is working fine, then that probably isn't the source for not getting a charge.

You could try lightly scraping the contacts on the battery and see if that makes a difference and recharge them.
