Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
After first time charging,its off and no respond when connect to my pc,,no charging and not on
Possible that the battery is bad or has been on shelf for a long time. If you can test the adaptor for the working voltage it can be confirmed if the charging voltage is good. Use a multimeter to check the voltage at the battery terminals. Also check the battery voltage before and after charge, if voltage is present at the terminals but there is no charging on the battery,then it is possible that the battery is defective and could have developed reverse polarity.

"check connections" I just got a Casio Ex-Z77 and am trying to upload my photos for the first time to my PC. I've followed the instruction manual and tried all the tips I've found online (making sure my battery is charged, checking USB ports - all the obvious stuff), but nothing works. As soon as I plug in the USB cord, the screen goes blank. After a couple minutes the screen says "check connections". The ONLY response I'm getting from my camera when it's plugged in is, when the volume on my PC

I have a brand new Nikon coolpix s3000. This is my first time attempting to uplaod the pictures to my computer. My camera has been saying that the battery is exhausted all day, so i figured if i plugged it into my PC using the provided USB chord, it would charge my camera and upload the content. However, my camera is not responding atall. Its not flashing any lights or even being recognized by my PC. How can i fix this problem?
Your camera came with a separate battery charger, didn't it? Plugging a camera with a dead battery into a computer won't get you very far. Charge the battery first. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera
My camera says 'Connecting to PC' all the time when I turn it on even if it is not connected to PC. I think it has got confused as the last time I used the camera was to take photos off it and it may have run out of charge while connected to the PC. I cannot use the camera as it always has this 'Connecting to PC' message on it.
Connect the camera to your PC. Turn it on. Wait till the PC 'acknowledges' the camera. Then disconnect it via 'remove USB-device safely'-function.If this doesn't work. try resetting the camera with the reset button you'll find under the c ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
My camera will not charge. It was purchased just short of a year ago, so here is no reason for the battery to be broken. It will not charge at all when the memory card is inserted and when it is, the charging light links four times and then stops. I last used my camera about 2 months ago and it worked fine. The battery died during the last use and I am trying to charge it for the first time since.
Hi,\015\012It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new batte ... Nikon Coolpix S4000 Digital Camera
I got this camera last June and it's been dead since January. Every time i try to charge it, it will not respond to the charge.The battery is completely dead, but when the charger is plugged into either the wall or the computer, it will not charge at all. Is it the battery? Also, Ike th recently just ordered a new charger for my camera and the same result happened; the camera will not respond to the charge.

Charging Problem Charging appears complete after about 15 minutes. Normal charging time is 90 minutes. When the camera is turned on the oblong battery level indicator is filled white where previously it contained diagonal markings. The white disappears rapidly as the battery discharges within just a few minutes. Enough time to take a couple of picture. The camera then shuts down. I sent the camera to a repair company who at first said they could repair it. Later they told me the camera wa

Fuji s9000 problem, it won't turn on with the ac supply at all. The last time I used my camera I put in some rechargeable batteries (new ones) while the camera had the ac adapter connected, I was just seeing if the new batteries had charge on them or not. Well, after a while I came back to my photo booth and my camera had a white screen (lcd) and so I unplugged it at that time thinking maybe it was charging the batteries or something. Well today around a week later I am not able to turn my ca

My Kodak Easyshare M580 will not turn on. It said the battery was low so I plugged it into the wall to charge it and the light was blinking at first and then the light shut off. Now, the camera won't turn on at all. I've only had it for about a month and this is the first time I tried charging it.
The battery is probably a Li-ion battery and if the voltage gets too low, trying to charge it will lock the battery out as this is a built in safety feature to prevent the battery from charging too fast and causing a fire. You may want to try this. T ... Kodak Easyshare M580 Digital Camera

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.
Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
Hello, I recently purchased the Canon powershot sd1400. I connected the camara to my computer for the first time to download my pictures and it worked. Now i tried to do the same but my computer no longer recognizes it is connected. I then installed the software(disc) and reconnected the camara. I attempted to open the camara window but I keep getting the error message that reads "can not detect camara. please check connection and try again." I've been doing this for hours and still no luck.
If you have another USB port, try it. You can easily solve your problem by getting a card reader...they always work. ... Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS IXUS 130 Digital Camera
