Does Panasonic NV-DS29B need a special power supply?

    I'm trying to rescue an allegedly working Panasonic NV-DS29B miniDV camera
    that has no battery or AC adapter. I have an AC adapter from an earlier
    model Panasonic that should put out the about the right voltage but the
    camera doesn't respond when plugged in and switched on. Do Panasonic AC
    adapters add some signal to the power line that makes them unique to each
    model. I thought I'd just be able to use any old power source that could
    supply the marked current and voltage. I notice the socket is marked 'DC/CC
    in, 7.9V'. I wonder what the 'CC' stands for?

    CC - sorry no idea.
    I suspect it's to do with the current/power.

    My PSU says 7.9v 9 watts, which means you'll need to supply more than an
    amp.

    I've used he camera with a 7.5V 1A PSU as a test

    Thanks, that's what I hoped to hear. I take it you're talking about a DS29B
    cam, or is it a different model you've tested?

    Ah, thanks Gary. Looks like I might be in luck then. Just need to find a
    decent PSU.
