Yes, I tried a different battery
Hi Freddy I could try a different charger but the screen shot shows 5 + hours of charge. However, when I unplug the camcorder from the power source it goes dead (I did notice a message momentarily on the screen saying "change battery" or something similar. The power then cut off and it's dead until I plug it into the mains again.
Hi Freddy I can't find anothe charger lead but here's some info that might be useful. When I disconnected it from the lead it said "47 mins" power. I carried it around for about 5 mins and it lost all that power and then said "change battery pack" and its now beeping and has now powered off.
OK Thanks I'll try that. If it's not the charger what might it be
