Hello. We have a HDC SD9 camcorder but the battery will not charge. The charging lamp is not lit on the charging unit. Is there something obvious we could be missing? The DC adapter is not connected. The camera has not been used for a while. Help!
There are 2 things that could have happened here. One is you have a grounded battery and that will not charge and the other is the charging unit is bad. I would bet on a grounded battery that is unabl to charge. Have you tried using a different battery in the charger?
We have no other battery to try. WHen we connect the camera via the DC adapter that will not power on either - any ideas?
The only thing that would cause that is the power control board in the camera being shorted out. THat would be a pricey repair. THe short is preventing the power from getting to any part of the camera.
