Panasonic Video Cameras - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
Just bought the panasonic HM
Sounds like it needs a battery.
After a few years those batteries will charge up to the correct voltage, but the length of time that charge lasts gets shorter and shorter, You probably have a drill, a razor, a laptop computer, or a flashlight that do not hold a charge as long as they used to, I know that you have a camera that doesn't hold a charge .
Sounds like a battery problem,

MY VDR-D220 PANASONIC CAMCORDER WON'T POWER UP !!!!!
First get a voltmeter and test the power cord END that plugs directly in the charge port..if you have voltage on the charger (24volts or less) the main board in the camera is blown. In that case if it's worth it I buy another "parts or repair" camera on eBay that at least Powers up and swap boards with my broken can. Hope that helps ??

Have problem with Panasonic Model
these type of camcorder you have to use them more often to keep the gear working right and clean them ,for this type of work you would need a tweezer a q-tip with a tiny piece of foam rubber tied to the end of q-tip and a few drops of fine oil use the tweezer to pick lint maybe hair and use the q-tip for cleaning, see if the camcorder has a rubber to run gears if it does that might be the problem the rubber might be too soft.you might need to replace the rubber, one more thing if you have a hard time finding the rubber for cam,
than use a used a bike tube, what you do is with scissor you cut across the bike tube thin rubber bands.and try not to get any oil on rubber. GOOD LUKE NO BIG DEAL.
