This is just a stab in the dark, that somebody might be able to help me?. I\nhave a camcorder that doesn't get used all that often, and when I eventually\ngo to use it, I always find that the batteries are dead and wont charge with\ntheir own charger. (the batteries have not had a lot of use) What I have\ndone in the past is, give them a boost for a minute or so with my car\ncharger, and then charge them in the usual way with their own charger to\ncomplete the charge, and this usually works OK, but for some reason it\ndidn't work this time. Does anyone have tips or ideas how I might get some\nlife into the batteries again as new ones are expensive. Thanks up-front.
