Charging the battery on Jazz HDV178 digital camcorder

\015 I recently purchased the Jazz HDV178 camcorder, I have placed the battery in the camera and everything works Ok but it does not indicate in the instruction manual anything about recharging of the battery?? Can you please provide information\015

Answers :

Use the charger that came with it and insert the mini-USB plug into the camera. The red LED will flash until the battery is charged and then it will stay on steady. I left mine overnight the first time. About four hours the second time. Still don't know exactly how long it takes though.
My daughter lost her charger for her Jazz...I searched the internet for a battery charger for "li-ion 3.7V battery charger" and found several options. Just ordered an external generic charger for less than $6 from http://store.enessy.com/Battery-Chargers/Universal/Mini-Universal-Battery-p5553702.html

I hope it works! They also had a generic replacement battery for less than $4.

I did not have much luck searching for anything related to the name of the camcorder, but had much greater luck searching for the 'words' printed on the battery itself. That is what I would suggest if you are searching for a replacement battery or charger.
Good Luck!

Battery charging I recieved the Jazz DV179 as a gift. The battery was already in the camera, but I was told that I would have to charge it. I plugged the Camcorder into the wall and left it for over 24 hrs to charge, but when I remove it from the plug it shuts off. If i plug it back into the wall it comes on so i know the camcorder works. I am not sure on how to proceed next. Is there something wrong with the battery?, does the battry need and external charger before you insert it into the camco

Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?
