    Hello, I'm from Argentina. My English is not so good, but I'll try to write the best I can. I have (or I had) a video camera Panasonic HC-MDH2. Someone has stolen me the original AC/DC adapter that comes with the camera. In my country is really difficult (or directly impossible) to buy accesories, because Panasonic Shop doesn't sell them. I was searching in different online shops from here, but I didn't find it. I asked for help in Panasonic Customer Support from USA, but they couldn't help me because they don't sell this model in that country (something quite ridiculous). Then I decided to buy a generic one. I have purchased an AC/DC adaptor with output voltage selector (different points from 1.5 V to 12 V). The camera uses 9.3 V. I have connected the adapter to the camera, but nothing happened. The charge led (included on the camera) never turned on. And the whole camera never turned on any more. Then I checked the adapter. It is failed. The output voltage selector says 9 V, but with a voltimeter I have checked it, and the real output is 18 V. Obviously, the camera suffered a voltage overload. Before visiting the technical service, I'd like to ask you your opinions. Could it exist a possible solution?. Thank you very much.
