Canon powershot sd1000 white screen, lens wont open. not dropped, not wet. I put in the battery when the green indicator on the charger comes on, this is what I get. I take the battery out and put it back in the charger minute later, and the red indicator is on, is it possible that the battery isnt holding enough charge, or is it a camera problem? i hate to buy another one if the camera is no good.

Casio Ex-z77 Battery issue? Tried charging battery..instead of constant red light while charging which changes to green when charged, now flashes red. Charger broken? Battery broken?

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.
Yes. There should be a constant green light when it is completely charged.What does the battery status show when plugged to the camera? If it show full then then there is problem with the charger not the battery.ThanksKindly r ... Digital Cameras
Hi I have a Samsung ST550 Camera. My problem is it won't charge. It's cable has an indicator light and should turn red to indicate that it's charging and turns green when it's fully charged. However, when I plug it in (either on my pc or an electric outlet) the indicator light will only show for a quick 3-5 seconds (turns green then orange then red very quickly) then it turns off. At first I thought the light was just delayed or something but after a few minutes I checked the camera but it was c

Hello! I got my Sandstrom SBTHP11X about a month ago. But now I'm already having troubles with turning them on. I have held down every button, double clicked everything etc. And when I put them in the charger, they light up red. Then after becoming fully charged(green light), I take them out, they don't work. I put them back in the charger, but the red light comes back again. It seems that it's incapable of charging.. Do you have any tips?
"Return the item to the point of sale for replacement" is the advice from Sandstrom support. And if that ones breaks within one month too, I guess repeat the process... ... Digital Cameras
Canon SD4000 camera, when hitting the power button, the screen remains black screen, the green light blinks twice, lens zooms out, shutter opens. Screen remains black, and I do not seem to have any control at all; pressing the zoom button doesn't move lens, no notable reaction to anything. Hit the power button again, the lens zooms back into it's original position, shutter closes (occasionally does not shut completely), green light blinks twice, screen remains black.

Hello, I have a EX-Z8 Exilim Casio camera. The last time the battery ran out I put it in the charger as normal. However instead of having a constant red light, the red light has a continuous flashing. This has no expanation in the handbook but it must be an error as when I take the battery out of the charger and put it into the camera again, the camera will still not switch on. I have not had this camera for long. And there is no other reason why it shouldn't be working. Many thanks, Michell
If the charge lamp flashes red it means the battery is faulty or the battery is loaded in the charger incorrectly. Take the battery out and check if the contacts are dirty - wipe them with a dry cloth and try charging again. If the error continues, y ... Digital Cameras
I have an Olympus e510 that I bought new 2 years ago. The other day I got it out to use it and it will not turn on. I purchased a new battery, charged it, and it still will not work. When I removed the battery from the charger the light on the charger was green. I decided after the camera would not turn on I put the battery back on the charger. At that time the charger was showing a red light. Could the charger be going bad?

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking.

Battery failure I charge my Pentax Optio S5z battery on the charger then put it in the camera when it is fully charged (green light comes on on the charger) but the camera won't work ie. battery is dead, as i put it back in the charger and the light comes up red like it is flat again. Sometimes I just leave it in the camera and it seems to work after a few days, then may last for a day or sometimes for ages. I'm guessing the battery is stuffed but I want to check before I buy a new one. Please
The only solution for that is to buy a new battery. I had the same problem with my canon 900Ti (NB5 battery), died after less than a year. It probably exceeded it's battery cycle life... have a nice day! ... Pentax Optio S5z Digital Camera
The batterie charger for my Casio Exilim EX-Z77 has a blinking red light instead of a continous red light when i try charging the batterie. also, it doesnt appear to be charging it at all. Left in in for several hours and it is still empty.

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.
