Hv20 wont turn on
from one day to another, my HV20 wont turn on.
Tried new batter pack, tried external power. Nothing.
no sound, no anything. The cassette in there wont come out, and even the lens protection is wide open.
I'm a pupil, and will go insane if its broken, please help me
Did you try hitting the reset button underneath the battery?
To all Newbies: Have you read this FAQ before posting? Or watched this short video?

Yes, wont help
I'd say get it fixed by cannon, or your warranty
With the battery mounted and it plugged in, do you get any blinking charge indicator?
no blinking elements, absoluty nothing.
Sounds like a power supply problem. Got a meter to check the voltage on the charger??

HV20 doesn't turns ON.
So we where working on a film shoot. We had an HV20 and an HV30. The HV20 stopped working after day 1. There was simply no power getting to the camera. Suspecting the battery, we plugged it in, but still no power, although a little blicking red light appeared under the charge indicator.
Then I lent my HV30, and after a day of shooting the same thing happened to my camera. We suspect the steady cam penetrated the casing and caused damage. Is this possible? Has anyone else ever had this happen? What would happen if we screwed in the steady cam to hard?
Please help we need to make short films. We are part of a film club.

Have you tried to capture video to a computer since the last time you turned it on?
