The batterys are charged, but nothing happens when I turn it on.
I was just recording, then the battery was going down, and I switched out the battery to a fully chagred one. Now when I click 'on', nothing happens! I have tried using other batteries but nothing is working. It is a brand new camera, I looked for corrision and used an eraser, but nothing was there. Help!

This camera and the model before it have a problem with inrush current opening a safety fuse on the DC-DC converter board. If this is the case, JVC will replace the SMD fuse with a modified part number, this should resolve the problem. Please be sure the camera is off before attempting to change the battery, this can also cause this problem.

If the camera has only been off for a few months, I would recommend that you take the camera and the battery to a camera shop, verify that the current battery is holding a charge and then check the camera with another battery.
If you let the battery charge for about ten hours it might work. If you just want to see if the computer will work remove the battery and try with the charger plugged in. If you don't need to carry the computer around a battery is not needed. Some batteries will not recharge if they have been discharged too much. If you are going to use it with a battery I suggest that you set your power setting to turn the computer off after a period of unuse and this problem won't happen again. Check Ebay for a battery replacement.
check connection and wires at battery for damage or corrosion if good check for power to ignition switch if no power check for damaged or shorted wiring if good turn key and check if power going to relays or accessory's at fuse panel if no power switch may be bad
What happens when you attempt to start the engine? If nothing happens when you turn the key,you need to check the batteryto
determine its state of charge. Many starters won't do a thing unless
there is at least 10 volts available from the battery. A low battery
does not necessarily mean the battery is the problem, though. The
battery may have been run down by prolonged cranking while trying to
start the engine. Or, the battery's low state of charge may be the
result of a charging system problem. Either way, the battery needs to
be recharged and tested.
If the battery is low, the next logical
step might be to try starting the engine with another battery or a
charger. If the engine cranks normally and roars to life, you can
assume the problem was a dead battery, or a charging problem that
allowed the battery to run down. If the battery accepts a charge and
tests okay, checking the output of the charging system should help you
identify any problems there.

leave on charge for two hours, then with the SD card out hold down the reset button at the back of unit for ten seconds and then the 'on' switch for ten seconds.
