I have the same problem. It's a palmsight pv-l757. Was working fine until the battery went dead. Finally got a new battery after a few months and then it started powering off shortly after powering on. I also tried hooking it up to the wall outlet and it did the same thing.

Tried: New Battery
Tried: PowerCord attached to wall outlet
NEXT????????
Buy a new camcorder???? Did that but still want to find out what happened to this one.

I have the exact same problem. It worked fine until the tape ran out. I even tried running it off the DC power cord instead of the battery. It seems there is something else wrong with it.

It sounds like the battery is flat - I realise that you've probably already thought of this, and charged up the battery, however batteries have a finite life and number of charge cycles they can go through, and may appear to be fully charge (According to the charger, at any rate), but they are unable to hold any decent charge. My suggestion would be to head down to the local camera shop, and ask if you can try a new battery in-store.

I ve the palmcorder which when powered it only switches on for seconds then off . what is the problem and how to fix it? The other thing is about the battery am failing to charge, how do i do to the...

Sometimes the batteries for these camcorders just go bad. There's nothing you can do to fix the battery itself, but you can find them really cheap online. If you don't think the battery is bad, and you just don't know how to charge the battery, you can find the manual on Panasonic's site. You can click support, and there will be a place to enter the model number. It will be on the camera, probably on the bottom. If you enter a model number that doesn't fetch results, try a different number (or combination of letters and numbers) until it does find results for your camera. Most of these small cameras have a small door, or attached cap that you have to pop up and open with your fingernail (they are small, so look carefully, most likely around the bottom or back of the camera). Plug the charger in and wait to see if the battery charges. If it does, the Palmcorder will stop turning off a few seconds after you turn it on.

HOW TO FIX THE TRACKING PROBLEM IN MY PANASONIC PALMCORDER iq

If the camcorder has been sitting unused for a while, there is a good possibility that the capacitors on the PCboards have started to leak. A good test of this is to turn your camcorder on, let it heat up, and then smell it (inside where the tape goes is usually the best place). If you smell fish, your caps are leaking. Once this happens, it is recommended that ALL of the caps be replaced and this repair is not cost effective to do. Another sign of bad caps is if the image in your viewfinder rolls, is wavy, or smeared in any way.
If you think that it is not a "bad cap" problem, the mechanism may just need to be cleaned by a professional. If you have a VHS-C head cleaning tape, you can try that for 5 to 10 seconds and see if it helps. www.austintelstarservices.com
