Anyone have a solution for this? My camcorder has a newly charged battery on it, but when i turn it on to camera, the power light flashes and it does not respond when i press the manu button or the red record button. Is it fixable? Or do I have to get another one?
I've been having this some problem as well. Actually, I had the problem a year ago, spent almost sticker price to get the thing fixed, it worked for a while but I didn't use my camera much, and now the problem has returned.

I just posted another solution on the main link. Basically hook up the unit to the ac adapter, reset the menu to get rid of the blinking red light, and then put a new tape in on camera mode. The unit was able to record again and also work in camera mode.
the capstan motor of the camera is not running that why the power
display is blinking and when you eject the tape there a portion of the
ribbon that left..it is a poor connection of the capstan motor to the
main board of the camera....
Do you put a tape in when you try to record or do you connect to a DVD / VCR so that it records onto the DVD or VHS?
If this is how you do it, then I will recommend you use a mini DV tape instead.
Hope this helps.
. Take out the tape - AND TURN THE CAMERA POWER ON 2. press the menu button (near the viewfinder) 3. Use he wheel on top next to the viewfinderto scroll through the choices 4. Choose "display setup" by pushing the wheel in 5. Choose "C. Rest" by pushing the wheel in 6. Turn camera off 7. Next time you turn camera on y ou should be able to view tapes and record. IT DID NOT WORK THE FISRT TIME SO I PUT MY FINGER IN TO TRY TO GENTLY PUSH BUTTON WHEN I TOOK THE TAPE OFF AND THEN TRIED SOLUTION ABOVE AGAIN, AND THIS TIME, IT WORKED. BUT PLEASE DONT INSERT YOUR FINGERS IN AS I DID TRY THE SOLUTION 2 OR THREE TIME IT SHOULD BE OK, HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU
Are there any error codes on the screen? It sounds like your unit has a moisture problem or needs reset. Do the reset first. Remove the battery for about 30 minutes, reinstall and see what happens. If this doesn't solve the problem leave the unit in a dry area with the cassette door open for a day and then try it. If it still will not work you could have a bad moisture sensor (or most any problem) which will need replaced. If you are not capable of electronic repair you will need to find a reputable repair shop.

thats an indication that no disc or wrong type of disc is present. Have you tryed to clean the laser lens>> or using the approved lens cleaner for this unit?? try it and see you may be surprised. good luck
