Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble, Edward.
Because this is such an old model that was discontinued 10 years ago, most parts for it are no longer readily available.
What you need is battery model LSSB0011 or LSSB0014
Only one source has them in stock that I have been able to locate: http://www.interstatebatteries.com/p/camcorders/panasonic/panasonic-lssb0011-cam0575?dsNav=N~23-4294651742-4249555145-2147384903
I am an independent technician and I've spent my personal time, unpaid, in an effort to assist with the question for which you solicited my services. This site works on the honor system, and to that end, I have prioritized working with you ahead of other paying customers.
Although you’ve already paid your fee to the site, I am only compensated for my efforts when customers such as yourself leave positive feedback for my work. I do hope you’ll consider leaving a 5 star rating for me, rather than “shoot the messenger”, so that I may get credit for my time spent in good faith to answer your question accurately. Rating 1 or 2, or not rating at all, does not produce a refund, it only penalizes me for trying to help.
