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.
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.
are you trying to charge the battery while on the camcorder??? does the camcorder work when you plug the camcorder into the charger?? If the battery fails to charge while its on the charger it can only be the charger but most likly the battery. If the camcorders dead it could be the dreaded pana cap think thT HAPPENS TO MOST CAMCORDERS AFTER A LITTLE AGE. good luck
