From what ive been told, you might have a blown fuse. Unfortunately it is just any regular fuse its a micro fuse. It is at the edge of the motherboard with the etching H or K there are 4 of them. You can test to see if there is conductivity, if not than it could be the fuse, you can replace it or try to solder over the fuse...that would be dangerous but your camcorder will work until excess current fries it. IF not it could be a loose circuit.

SOURCE: Will not turn on with good battery.

Can you not detach the lead to the charger unit, and plug that directly to the camcorder, to see if its the actual camcorder at fault ?
Near the camcorders power socket, you should see a small picture telling you what power the cam uses - usually around 7 volts, centre positive connection jack plug, at around 900mAh. As long as you get the voltage close, and have enough amps behind it, it will still work safely.
Camcorders are rarely fussy about the exact voltage, but you should never go above 9 volts unless its needs more. Most take the internal power down to 5 volts inside anyway.
The batteries do have a tiny non-replaceable internal fuse, triggered by voltage spikes or overheating, and if that goes, it usually means buying a new battery :(
Batteries can go at any time from the very first second they are used. I've bought many, and had a few that didn't last 2 months from brand new. One high-end type lasted over 9 hours on its very first charge :) and then never worked again after that :(

The DC port will need to be replaced and can usually be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Canon Vixia HF M41 doesn't charge battery - red light flashing rapidly


If you don't use the battery for a long period of time even a new battery may become dead. You can try a new battery. If it still doesn't work then the problem is with the charging IC. u can also try a desktop charger instead of direct charger.

Hi!

Almost sure there is nothing wrong with your battery, charger and camcorder.
The battery loose power even when doing nothing, especially when it is a NiMH type.

Please charge the battery for a couple of hours and try again to start the camcorder.

Good luck!

How to chrge it?


You will need a charger like the one listed below. Just remove the battery and place it on the charger.

CA-920 Compact Power Adapter
This is the standard charger and power source for the GL2. It will charge one battery at a time.

Battery


To quote Imaging-Resouce.com: He only got about 100 minutes off his battery. Here's what he said: Slightly better than average battery life for a compact model, but think about buying a second battery anyway. The Canon Powershot SD200 uses a custom rechargeable LiIon battery for power, and uses a custom power adapter, so I couldn't perform my usual direct measurements of its power consumption, but did check how long it would run on a fully charged battery. Like most compact digicams, battery life on the SD200 is a little on the short side, with a worst-case run time (capture mode, with the LCD turned on) of 107 minutes by actual measurement. This is better than many compact and subcompact models, but I'd still strongly recommend purchasing a second battery along with the camera, and keeping it charged as a spare. (Digicam batteries always die at the worst possible times.)
I found this for cheap "Replacement Camera Battery for Canon Powershot SD200 " SKU NB4L103719 $5.42 + s/h at Become.com To increase battery life, turn off unnecessary features like any beep feature, reduce the picture review display time, etc. How many minutes are you getting out of it?

Canon DC20


This happens alot at work its either the charging part is broke or its the mainboard inspect the port for damage if its ok then inspect the ac adapter for damage as well, if you have time you could go to best buy and ask to use a charger from a floor model if it doesnt work then it needs to go in for repair sorry.

If this is true, then why does the manual for my new PowerShot SD1100 IS say, "Do not connect compact power adapters or battery chargers to devices such as electrical transformers for foreign travel because it may lead to malfunctions, excessive heat generation, fire, electric shock or injury."

Is this just a standard disclaimer in case something weird happens by using a transformer to charge the battery?
