MVX 20i (Mini DV video camera)...won't turn on!!!

  AWMedia 10:02 14 Jan 2008

Hi, I've had a Canon MVX 20i for about 4/5 years now, it's a great camera, I've used it often, on my travels and to make little films etc. For the past 6 months it's been in my backpack as I've travelled but I've had no problems, it's been working fine. Now all of a sudden, it simply won't turn on in any mode and the battery won't even charge, nothing happens when I plug it in!

I've tried different batteries but still no luck?

Can anyone shed some light? It would be much appreciated.

Will it run from the mains via the charger?

  AWMedia 15:19 14 Jan 2008

Nope, nothing at all from the mains charger, no flashing light or power.

Any way to check that the mains charger is OK?

Also, any way to charge the battery off the camera?

I have 4 batteries, all of which had been charged so at least one should have some power I'm 90% certain.

Thanks for your help, do you have the same camera?

No I have a JVC. Would suggest you take a battery into Dixons or Jessops and ask them to charge it for you then try again , that way you will know if the problem is with the battery, charger or camera

Like I say, I'm 90% certain the problem's with the camera...If that's the case, what do you think it could be?

If its the camera then I have no idea, sorry
