    My Sony Handycam CCD-TRV65 (Hi8) camcorder will not power up with the
    battery pack or with the power adapter. I swapped out the battery
    pack and the adapter but it did not help. The camera worked fine the
    last time I used it and it has been sitting in a cabinet for about six
    months. It hasn't left the house in several years so I don't think
    it's a problem with any foreign matter getting inside. The battery
    contacts and DC IN contacts are clean.

    Any ideas would be helpful. I'm an electrical engineer and I have a
    scope but I'm not sure where to start. I don't want to crack open the
    case unless I know what to expect.

    Just a thought, but a simple adjustable DC supply hooked up to the
    battery contacts (on the camera) should make it power up . Set the
    voltage to whatever it says on the battery (7.2V, etc) .

    Make sure to get it round the right way !!!!!
