Customer Question

I just bought a used panasonic camcorder model number HC-V10P. I hadd to buy a charger cord for it. Should it come on when I plug in the charger or how do I know if it is charging?

Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help you with your question.

About your Panasonic HC-V10:

When you plug in the camera with the USB cable, the status indicator will flash red for approximately 2 seconds indicating that charging has begun. It will turn off when the charging is completed. If it's not flashing red that means the battery is fully charged!

Here is a link the full User Manual, and turn read page 13 more more details.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Thank you.

Ok, there was no light that came on. So do you think I need to order a new battery?
Expert:  Michael Hannigan replied 1 year ago.

Yes. The battery is the most likely problem. When you do order the replacement, be sure that it is a genuine Panasonic battery. That will give you the best result.
