ok, its straight forward sorry Carl
It is the internal memory that has faulted. It cant read from it and this is why it wont operate. Power still goes through it though and its the correct amps as you tried a few batteries so this is not the problem.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the camcorder to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you. But it has to be replaced. If the warranty has expired, do not get it repaired, its more cost beneficial to purchase a new one when it has this problem.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
