I have a four year old model GR-D90U digital video camera. When I went to use it at a wedding, it wouldn't turn on; no view screen, no power light, nothing. I thought it might be the battery, so I took it home and plugged in the DC cord. The same thing; no view screen, no power light, nothing. It's deader than a door knob.
The only thing I did before attempting to use it was to put in a digital tape, but I believe at that time the camera didn't load it. What could cause the camera to not power up with either battery or DC power cord? The camcorder has never gotten wet, been dropped, or been abused in any way. Any info you could supply would be greatly appreciated.
