Hi all,
I was given a Panasonic PV-950 VHS camcorder about a year or so and I decided that I'd try and get it working again. I ordered a new battery for it less than a year ago since the original battery that came with it is completely dead. When I try to charge it, the charge light just flickers. If I leave the charger by itself without a battery for a while, how long the charge light stays on before it flickers off increases. Is there anything I can do to attempt to repair the charger? If not, can anyone point me in the direction of a new charger I can use? It's a 12V 2Ah SLA battery if that helps. The charger is a Panasonic PV-A24 as well.

Clarification is needed. Are you trying to charge the completely dead battery or the one you bought that is less than a year ago?
Could you take a couple of photos?

Sorry about the clarification, I'm trying to charge the battery that I bought less than a year ago. I attached the photo of the charger and the model number, and the dead battery (the Panasonic branded one) and the one that I bought less than a year ago (the generic branded one with the white warning label). I can take more photos if you want, or I can take an example video of the charge light on the charger flickering off.
