Hi,

I have a HF 200 which has served me well over the years. Now when I plugged in the original Canon power adapter, the red LED will flash 7 times in about 7 seconds, and then rest for about 5 seconds. The battery does not charge and it's the original Canon battery. I can use a compatible battery charger and the battery will charge. However, it won't display the remaining time properly and it will alert me to change battery all the time. I bought a new battery which initially worked fine, displaying the remaining time properly. But the camcorder won't charge it.

Is the problem with the power adapter? Is there a replacement?

Or is the problem with the camcorder? Given its age, I probably don't want to fix it. if so, is there an inexpensive compatible charger that I can buy?

Thanks
