    I have NEVER seen a camera get stuck on a menu before, nor did I ever think someone was dumb enough to get it stuck.

    My brother managed to do something to his camera and its stuck on a recording screen that says 00:00:00. It doesn't change. (thats the time its been recording) and it says the > Pause. I press everything and NOTHING happens. WTF!?!

    He has a DVF-720 Polaroid camcorder.

    Also the battery won't come out.

    Wait for the battery to die, I guess. It can't last forever.

    I tried to charge it. It won't charge (its still turned on) when it normally does. I think it might not work when it's dead either.

    Why is it that you can't take out the battery?

    My first guess would have been to pull the battery too; why won't it come out? Is it internal?

    Either way, it sounds like it could just be a glitch in the software; losing power will let it reset and it should hopefully be alright after that.
