    I also have a DC10 and am experiencing the same symptoms - the battery is reading 0V but when I connect the dc supply, the camcorder does not work, however the 'DISC' led lights briefly but then goes out. I don't know why the camcorder doesn't work with the dc supply but I plan to get a new battery and hopefully this will sove the problem.

It has been my experience that when this happens it is a defective battery and not the charger.

Well the first thing I would do is recommend you send your unit in for service as you may end up doing more harm then good. You can call and get free estimates on what this may cost. If you need any further assistance or help locating a service center let me know.

Hi, has your supplier actually tested that the mower is charging? If you have a multimeter check the battery voltage with the mower running at about quarter throttle. It should be higher than 12.7 volts, usually somewhere around 14 volts. If it is not the charging system requires checking. Hope this helps, regards Phil.

Flip Mino HD red light won't turn off after charging. Camera won't do anything at all. What do I do?

return it for a refund! i bought one, it did the same as yours. i returned it and bought the 2nd one. It did the same as the first one (and the same as yours.)

It is a piece of junk. Supposedly the previous Flips were good, unfortunately, I didn't have the previous models so my experiences only are bad.

Willnot turn on

Do you know if the charge light blinks when it charges or like mine it stays on untill charged then goes out, if it is blinking when it normally stays on during charging then it could indicate a fault ( usually with the ccd ) and could prove to be a costly repair if not under warranty, maybe worth getting checked out.



P.S. it could also indicate you have a faulty battery or ac adapter

Charging lights turn red and green...But camcorder will not power on

All right if you have the same problem that i had what you need to do is take the battery out the take the memory card out the put the battery back in then try and turn it on if it works then put the memory card back in and it should be fixed

Sony DCR-VX1000E batteries

Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries

Jvc gz-mg330ek--will not power up--will not switch on

thank you for your email.
i have since sold the camcorder on--no more problems with it.
best regards
