Had the same thing happen to me. Went out and bought a new battery and it, too, does not charge. Apparently something messed up with the in-camera charging system. It will charge for several minutes (charge light illuminated) and then the charge light goes dark. Battery gage shows that there is virtually no time left on either battery (old or new). Anyone have any ideas other than a trip back to Sony?
Hi Mates - I did purchase a Sony DCR-HC40 camcorder around an year back and it was working superb till few days back.
As of date, i am facing a problem where the camera battery is not getting charged. It happened suddenly and abruptly as it was perfectly fine (with a back up of around 40 min to 1 hr) but not it is not getting charged up at all. I being a novice in this feild am not able to gauge whether its a problem in -
a) The wires or
b) The battery or
c) The camcorder itself
Pls help me.
