Will not charge
Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem.
Have you tried a different battery?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Took camera to the shop I bought bit from. They tried a dfiferent cable, tried using camera , connected, but with no battery. Nothing happened.

Without a battery even with a cable this camera will not turn on. Did they test a different battery as well?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Don,t know. Will try a new batery

If you bring it with you to the shop they should be able to test your battery or at least test your camera with a different one.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

have bought a new battery. There was some charge in it, which showed that I can view the recordings. However on running out, it will not recharge. What next

Delay in replying is that I do not always go near my suppliedr

Darn, I really hate to tell you this but you are indeed going to need a new part. What you testes rules out both the cable and the battery itself. Unfortunately that means the port on the board inside the camera has failed and needs to be replaced. You can either solder a new port onto the board in its place or replace the entire board to fix this.

I can not find anywhere that has the board but a local technician may be able to order it for you from Panasonic. As for soldering not all shops do that so you would need to call around for one that does. If you have any questions at all click on reply to expert and let me know. If not please don’t forget to leave a positive rating for my help - it is greatly appreciated. Please note you are rating me only not this site or your Panasonic.
