Battery Problems Hi, I have an Casio Exilim EX-Z77 camera and the battery has totally died. I can't even turn the camera on without it beeping and turning right off. I have the usb wire to connect it to my computer, so that it can charge, but when I connect the usb wire and the camera, nothing happens. And I still have no battery power. Is there some way I can charge this camera? I'm the photographer for 4th of July festivities. Help!!

We have a Kodak 8.2 mega pixel camera that is approximately 1 1/2 years old. I took pictures and then uploaded them onto my computer. Unplugged everything. When I went back to delete the pictures off the camera card, the camera would not turn on or do anything. I tried to charge the battery but when everything is plugged in it is still totally dark. We purchased a new battery thinking that was the problem and still nothing. When the charger in plugged in there is nothing - no lights at all.

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?

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all. I tried to connect it to my computer, hoping that it will do something but still nothing. Strangely enough, the lens is on and I don't want to use force to put it back inside, afraid that it might damage the camera even more.Should I send it for repair? and if yes, where is the best place to do it? thanks in advance

Nikon COOLPIX S710 stops working after battery and/or memory card are removed. I have reformed the memory card (no change). Purchased 2X new batteries (no change). One of the original batteries will allow the camera to work, directly after a fresh charge, but not after it is removed, unless directly after insertion from being freshly charged.

When I go to download my photos on the computer it tells me (the computer) that it 'can not detect a camera connection' and to check the connection. The connection is definitely in properly but the connection button on the camera does not light up in blue (as it usually does). The battery is fully charged and can not find anything in the manuals provided regarding this failure. cheers, Maura

The battery for my z33wp won't charge anymore. It has only been fully charged 3-4 times. The camera's fine because with the little bit of battery left, it still worked perfectly. I don't know if the fault is with the charger or the battery. I'm still just about covered with the 6 month warranty, but im just wondering if this is a common problem. Would purchasing an alternative battery and charger be a good idea?
