I have tried to charge several new sony np-fp50 batties on my hc-30. The Charge Light comes on briefly , then after several minutes, it goes out and the battery has very little charge. The same thing has occured on several batteries. The hc will work when plugged into electrical outlet. Any suggestions?

If you have had the battery a long time or have charged it often it will need replacing if it does not charge. 800MAH is the capacity of the battery, how much power it can store. 800 is better than 700 and if it is a NP20 it will be OK in your camera.
One problem I know of is the battery for your camera should be model NP-20 not model NP-40. The NP-20 has 650mAh. I would exchange your new battery for the correct model battery, and see if this works. If this doesn't work I would try cleaning the battery terminals in the camera, and if that doesn't work go ahead and try a new charger.
This sounds similar to a problem I had. I brought the camera in under warranty and the repair shop fixed it. They shop text is cryptic.
Problem: Camera light keeps flashing, not charge
Solution: Troubleshoot to intermittent switch block control, replace with new one, test OK.
