Camcorder just quit - no power

\015 I have a PV-GS50D camcorder and it is frozen in the open position with a tape in and partially down. The power just quit and no battery seems to make it better. I need to somehow get power to it so I can open the tape cartridge and determine if it is totally fried or what. Even a brand new, fully charged battery does not provide power to the unit. Please advise.\015

Answers :

Hi There, Have you tried plugging in the d/c power cable from your charger? The power supply board inside the camera has 4 fuses, 1 is for the battery power, 1 is for the d/c plug in power, 1 is for both and the 4th is for lens functions. The camera may NOT be completly fried. A good service shop should be able to get your tape out without damaging it and give you an estimate for repair at the same time.

I have just purchased the samsung memory cam smx-c20 and the power will not turn on. The memory card and battery are correctly installed. I plugged the camcorder in to charge it over night.

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help. Thanks Maxine xx

I currently recharging the battery to see if this does the trick... however not hopeful... Quite surprised that such an expensive bit of kit is faul
