Why won't my camcorder turn on?
Battery not powering up the device? A symptom of a faulty battery will be that the camcorder is not turning on. Make sure that the battery is fully charged. This is normally the case as to why the camcorder won't turn on. If the battery is fully charged and the camcorder is not turning on, check to see if the correct battery is installed. Also check the battery with a battery tester. This will determine if the battery is low or not.
If the correct battery is installed or the battery works and the camcorder is still not turning on, then the charger could be the reason behind the camcorder not working. A symptom of this would be that the camcorder, when plugged in, will not turn on. The charger could have a malfunctioning cord. Check to see if there are any tears within the wire. Sometimes there are rips where the plug is located. If this is the case, a new charger will be needed
