Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I rec'd a The Sharper Image digital photo album with keychain as a gift two years ago. I have installed the 55 pictures from my pc to the unit. This unit will only work if I keep the unit plugged into my pc or a wall adapter. It does not respond to clicking the on and off switch. No light comes on green or red, but it is always green when plugged in. I think the unit does not have a battery in it as it should. If the battery is dead, it wasn't even used. When plugged in the unit shows


Answers :

It is for sure a battery related issue ..either the battery do not have contact like it should with the main board ...or it is damaged..and do not hold the power anymore...(it is possible if it was kept uncharged and not used..or not formatted well in the first place..
try to open it up and see if it is any visible loose contact ...and also to see the properties of the battery to get a replacement or at least one that fist with the same characteristics..

Ist issue: how do you get the battery out? I have been using a nail file to pry it out. 2nd issue: the charger blinks green and orange whether battery is inserted or not. Battery does not seem to charge. 3rd issue: I have camera plugged in by USB. The green power light comes on but that's it. The LCD screen doesn't light up, no other buttons seem to work. Where does my issue lie? Is it the battery, the charger or the camera?

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. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th
