Will the battery in my fuji finepix f470 charge when the camera is connected to my laptop (via camera usb used to get the photos) or do I have to use the charger that came with it and plug it into the wall.
The camera will not charge through the USB. In fact connecting the camera to a computer drains the battery faster, since the camera has to expend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). See page 10 of ... Fuji FinePix F470 Digital Camera
Power issue we bought my sony mvc-cd400 in 2002, so i understand that it is old and out of date. But up until a month ago it has been a great camera. I had the camera on the charger and noticed that when i unplugged it that it did not hold the charge, i returned it to the charger over night and it still had no charge. we replaced the battery the same issue, as long as the camera is plugged in to the charger i can use it. is this a fixable issue?

I have a SONY mini handycam model DCR-HC52 with 40x optical zoom. It has been working fine until a few days ago. When I insert a new tape the tape holder will not close. You can push the tape sideways into the carrier but the carrier will not descend into the camera. The lcd screen tells me to reconnect the power source.

Battery charging I recieved the Jazz DV179 as a gift. The battery was already in the camera, but I was told that I would have to charge it. I plugged the Camcorder into the wall and left it for over 24 hrs to charge, but when I remove it from the plug it shuts off. If i plug it back into the wall it comes on so i know the camcorder works. I am not sure on how to proceed next. Is there something wrong with the battery?, does the battry need and external charger before you insert it into the camco

I have a Sony DSLR-300. I lost the separate battery charger and bought an AC adapter that plugs directly into the camera. When I plug it into the adapter a red light comes on for 1 second then shuts off. The camera turns on while plugged in but won't stay on when I unplug it after I've had it on charge for 30 minutes. Any suggestions? I'm not even sure if the battery charges through plugging it in directly to the outlet rather than a separate battery charger?

BATTERY DOES NOT CHARGE Received a "Vivitar T328" camera yesterday. Inserted the supplied battery and a new memory card into the camera and connected the camera via "USB" cable to the supplied charger. Left the unit plugged in over night. The battery did not charge. This morning plugged the camera into a lap top computer using the supplied "USB" cable. Checked after 5 hours and found that the battery still does not seem to accept the charge. What am I doing wrong?

Battery? My sister got my Sony Cybershot wet...not submerged or anything...just wet. At first I thought it was broken b/c it would not turn on but I plugged it into the wall charger and it turns on just fine and takes pictures and everything..but the second you disconnect the wall charger from the camera it turns off...no juice at all. I'm wondering if I should waste money on a battery or just buy a new camera. Any suggestions? Could it possibly just be the battery?

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?
1st- you shouldn't have to do this. Stop filing your nails and you will be able to pry the battery out with a fingernail.2cnd- I can't decide whether this is a bad battery or a fault with the charger. Either way, the battery won't charge, ... Polaroid T737 Digital Camera
