  1. 1

    Fold the LCD screen located on the camcorder towards the lens, in order to expose the battery compartment. Make sure that the "Mode" dial on the camcorder is set to the "Off" position. Slide the small rectangular latch button located on the battery to unlock and remove the battery.

  2. 2

    Plug the supplied AC adaptor into a working wall outlet. Insert the battery into the AC charger, utilising the arrow markings on both the charger and battery. Leave the battery connected to the charger for at least 10 seconds.

  3. 3

    Reinsert the battery into the camcorder and turn the "Mode" dial located on top of the camcorder to the "HDD" position. If the camcorder does not power on, turn the "Mode" dial to the "Off" position, remove the battery and insert DC cable plug from the AC adaptor, into the DC terminal located in the camcorder's battery compartment; attempt to power on the unit by switching the "Mode" dial to the "HDD" position. If the camcorder powers on using the supplied AC adaptor, disconnect the adaptor from the camcorder and reinsert the battery into the charging station.

  4. 4

    Charge the battery for several hours or until the light indicator on the battery charger turns off. Reinstall the camcorder's battery and switch the "Mode" dial to the "HDD" position. If the camcorder fails to power on, replace the battery with a Panasonic approved replacement.
