Hey, I have a problem. Just got this samsung camcorder, was given to me. I tried it, it wouldn't even turn on. So I got a battery charger, left the battery on the charger all night, and it turned on...said battery low...then turned off.

 

So I got a new battery. Charged it up, worked great....played with it for a week, took some videos, everything was fine.

I left the battery on the charger last night...and BOOM...same thing. Will turn on, say battery is low, and turn off.

When I put the recently charged battery on the charger, the light is red not green.

 

What the hell??

Several suggestions

 

1: Check contacts on Charger, battery and camcorder. Make sure they are clean. Use a pencil eraser on contacts and wipe with a q-tip and alcohol.

 

2: Be sure that when the batteries are connected to both the charger and camcorder that they seat properly and the contacts are fully seated against one another. This is especially true for the camcorder. Third party batteries are often not as good as original parts and tend to create a sloppy connection causing errors.

 

If it is neither of the above, make sure both the charger and the batteries are compatible with the camcorder.
