Question about Sony Handycam DCR-IP1 Micro MV Digital Camcorder

Open Question

DCR- IP1E won't turn on

Hi I would like to find out, the camera was working perfectly until recently when i went to charge it all that came up was the red charging light. I left on charge for an hour and now the camera doesn't turn on. The flap at the front (in front of the lens) doesn't seem to cover the lens. My main concern is with the camera not turning on. It has been charged fully as insructed in the manual however its still not turning on. I am unable to do anything with it. The light flashes but there is nothing on the screen and its doesn't make a noise to notify that its working. please help Thank you

Unless somebody comes up quickly with a better solution for you, it may be an internal battery problem, especially if you keep having to set the time. For your local repairer click on this Sony support page. http://www.sony.co.uk/support/ShowExternalPageForProduct.action?supportProductModelName=DCR-PC105E&targetTab=externalLinkType_manual&site=odw_en_GB&page=ProductSupportDealerLocator§iontype=Support&externalUrl=http%3A%2F%2Fpdf.crse.com%2Fmanuals%2F3081627112.pdf&externalLinkType=manual

SOURCE: Sony HC-40E Charging Problem

Try loosening some of the screws on the handycam, to allow you to prise open the case slighly, allowing access to the strip coming from the switch. Cut a thin piece of rubber from an eraser, and gently stroke the wire strip with it. It works!

SOURCE: lens cover not open and blank screen

the problem of your camera is the ccd image sensor...better go to the sony service center for replacing the image sensor..i know it is free for replacing that sensor cause that is one of the model that sony recall produc and the cover not open error message is a poor contact of the lens cover switch...

My DS Lite wont charge! Help!


Try another charger, yours may be faulty. Alternatively,the battery may need replacing as it is no longer holding charge, these can be obtained very inexpensively from Ebay and you will just need a small cross head screwdriver to remove the cover on the back of the DS lite, then tap the unit in your hand to dislodge and remove the battery.

Place my camera on the charging unit and it starts to charge by indication of the green lights and then in second the lights turn red and it stops charging. I have purchsed a new battery and the same thing...


Hi,

Run the battery all the way down until completely dead and then try recharging. Nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries don't develop a "memory" quite like the old nickel cadmium (Ni Cad) batteries

OR

Try taking out the memory card. I had the same problem, but for some reason I had the memory card out and the green lights returned and my camera charges correctly now

OR

Had the same problem, and like mahav said, it was an issue with how my battery was arranged in the camera itself. Adjust the battery, and hopefullyy that will work.

OR

This happened to me. The cause was the battery did not fit into the case, This led to poor connection of the battery. After I fixed the loose battery , it worked perfectly till today.

Thanks

Have a nice day.

Red flashing light on battery indicator on the loading dock.


My Z760 does the same thing. When that happens I run the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Then when I put it on the dock it charges properly. Don't leave your camera on the dock all the time and don't try to always keep the battery fully charged--instead it will develop memory and think it needs to be fully charged to run and will give you a low battery signal earlier than it should. Wait until you actually get a low battery signal before charging and it should help, but mine will still give me the red light sometimes. Then I run the battery out like I said before. I hope this information helps. :-)

Kodak EasyShare Z760 won't charge.


The problem might be that the battery has developed memory and won't charge further. My first battery used to do that, but then I read that you shouldn't leave the camera on the dock all the time nor keep the battery fully charged all the time because of the problem of developing memory. You might try running the battery completely down by taking pictures until it shuts down. Sometimes when my battery is low the dock won't charge (but goes straight to the red light), but when I run it completely down when I put it on the dock it charges properly. I hope this information helps. :-)

Jazz hd v188 wont charge


Called support and they told me, the motorola charger is good only if you don't let the battery fully discharge . Once fully discharged it will not recognize the charger, don't let the battery icon flash or turn red, and you should have no problem.
