I accidentally used the wrong electric cord in my Panasonic SDR-H18 and now it won't work.

Technician's Assistant: How long have you had your SDR-H18?

At least 5 years

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Panasonic product?

Just using the batteries and at right cord but it still won't turn on. I have pictures of a wedding from this past weekend I wanted to down load
