Question Sony handycam ccdtrv87 power issue

I’ve been trying to use my Sony handycam but it just doesn’t seem to want to turn on to record.

I’ve charged the battery and replaced the internal lithium battery.

I’ve tested the power adaptor, the camera lights up whenever it’s plugged in and tells me the battery is full.

The camera will turn on to allow me to review the footage, but as soon as I flip the switch to record and switch the camera from lock to standby nothing happens. Or it turns on for a second or two as if flickering on and off.

I would normally assume it’s an issue with the internal power (and maybe I just don’t know enough about the inner workings) but the camera will turn on without fail (both with and without the power adaptor) to review footage.

I am at a complete loss and getting a bit frustrated as I cannot find anything online to help me. Any advice?
