Charging my Sony VX2000e

Hi there, just got my Sony VX2000e yesterday and last night I was getting it setup and doing my custom presets and everything was working fine.

I put in a FP960 battery as this was the bigger out of the two batteries I received and tried charging it. Turned it off and then put the charger in and a battery icon appeared on the side but it had no timer on it.

I left it on charge all night and when I woke up and unplugged it it further wouldn't turn on without haven't the charger in, and the battery wasn't charged, but it had 1 small power bar on the side inside the battery icon when it was charging when I woke up.

Also, when I woke up the battery display on the side was blinking off and on.

Is there any settings I need to press? Or do I need to have a cassette in it whilst it's charging? please help and ask my any further questions as I'm unsure on how to charge the camera

Just like to add that the batteries haven't been used for a number of years if this helps

Re: Charging my Sony VX2000e

If the battery has not been used in a number of years it is possible the battery is dead and will no longer hold a charge.  Was the battery attached to the camcorder during storage?  I only ask because that will shorten the life of the battery.  The batteries need to be charged and discharged from time to time when in long-term storage.
