I have a sony hdv 1080i camcorder. it works on mains power but will not work from a fully charged battery. Can anyone help suggest a solution?


Are these new batteries or old ones? If they are old it is possible that they will show as full but not have enough current to operate the device. If the batteries are over three years old or have been charged more that 300 times that is a distinct possibility. Also check the battery contacts on the device to make sure that they are not dirty. Clean with a pencil eraser.

My camera cant charge if I put it on the light it dosen't CHARGE EVEN IF I PUT MY USB CORD WHAT SHOLD I DO?


Please note that the camera will only charge from the computer if the camera is turned off. Also try a different USB plug. 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a No power repair or a new cable.

With fully charged battery 5D has power but will not take shots


This sounds like your release switch is faulty. I have repaired several of these 5D cameras with similar strange symptoms. Basically what happens is the first switch on you release assembly cracks and breaks thus making continuous contact. When this happens it basically locks up your camera. The solution is to replace the release switch assembly. The repair should not cost you more than $150.
Hope this helps.

Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.
good luck
