As title suggests, my Panasonic NV GS80 DV camera will not come on when I switch charger to mains and charger to camera in order to plug into laptop to record tapes onto dvd. The battery has to be removed from the camera for this
process to work. It has worked in the past.

The charger DOES charge the battery however. Both red and green lights light up when charging. NO lights come on when connected to camera.

I've had camera, charger and all cables into a camera shop. They said it was definitely the charger so I purchased a 'new' one off eBay. Same thing happened. Only thing I can think of now is the cable from the camera to the charger is not working.

Any ideas anybody? If you need anymore info just let me know.

Thanks for looking.
