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?

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

Won't charge!! I've had my NV3 for awhile and never had any problems with it. I was downloading and Photoshopping some pictures this morning for quite some time and must have left the camera on until the battery completely drained.

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
I am trying to download my pictures but the software does not recognize the camera or the disk within the camera. I can see (play) the pictures on the camera, hence the disk does not appear faulty. I connect the camera to the computer using a USB lead to download the pictures and click on EOS utility software. The battery is fully charged, the camera flashes saying it is 'busy' but there is no flashing red light to signify the photos are downloading. After a few minutes the camera goes dead (the

I have an olympus 'mju' 700 camera which uses li-ion 42b battery and a li-40c charger. Whenever i charge my batteries, the charging light would start flashing (which is not the sign of charging because the light should be still) and when this happens, the battery would not charge. The only way i could make my battery charge was to slot the battery in the charger whilst the power is on (usually, i slot the battery in then turn on the power). But i was using my batteries on a day out, 2 days aft

When I press the power button for my Olympus FE-190 to turn the camera on nothing happens. I haven't used it for a while so I initially thought that the battery might not have any charge. When I put the battery in the charger the charging light stays on for a few minutes and then goes out. I'm wondering if the battery needs replacing. I don't use the camera very often, have had it for a few years and, stupidly, have a tendancy to leave the battery in it when the camera is not in use.
Well, are your batteries in the right slots, and put in right position? Are the batteries used? Was your camera exposed to water? These might be reasons why this is happening to you. If this isn't a very good solution, I have more details, want them? ... Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera

Set up I cannot finish installation of the software because I get an error message that states an error code 1618x17x2951053040x.

Hi Suzanne - There is nothing to charge on your camera. It uses AAA batteries and you have to replace them when they're low. The USB cable is only for transferring files to a PC.\015\012\015\012\015\012I highly recommend you get a set of ... Vivitar ViviCam 5385 Digital Camera
I haven't used this camcorder in a couple of months (bought new in January). When I went to charge it last night, neither the mains charger or USB lead will charge it. Does it just need a new battery or is it something more serious?
The battery should be good if it was bought in January, with that said nothing is nperfect or lasts forever, there are always issues with some things. If all your connections from the charger or USB are good and tight and the cables are good, the eit ... Digital Cameras
Batteries After charging batteries I load them into camera and nothing happens. I tried standard batteries and things work fine. I return to charged batteries and everything works fine too.

My cybershot DSC-S730 has new NiMH batteries. The batteries can be fully charged when i put them into the camera and after a few photos I often put the camera away. When i go to use the camera the next day the battery charge is insufficient to open it. I can then them remove the batteries and put them into an older model cybershot and the old camera will work with the same batteries.

Troubleshooting. I'm currently using the EXILIM EX-Z60/Z60DX CASIO Digital Camera. I recently relocated and when I went to use my camera, I noticed the battery was almost dead. So, I took it home and put it on the charger. Usually, the red light will come on and it will charge, no problem. This time, the red light started blinking. I wasn't sure what that was so I left it on the cradle for about an hour to see if it would still charge. When I put the battery in the camera, my camera wouldn't eve

The manual says "your camera comes with a compatible charger, your only required to put the battery into the charger and charge the lithium battery directly from the outlet" The camera came with an AC adaptor which goes into the outlet. Is this the battery charger ? if so there is nowhere to put the battery it only has a usb cable input on the adapter
You put the battery into the camera. Put the USB end from your computer cord into the end of the AC adapter hook it up to your camera. Ta-da! Everything should be working smoothly in the battery/charger department. :) ... Vivitar ViviCam 8025 Digital Camera
Jazz DV-179 Hi there, My Jazz DV179 camcorder will not turn on. I've plugged the usb into computer and camera and the red light flashes a couple of times and then stays solid red. This would seem to indicate that it is charged. But it won't turn on. Can you please advise? Also, we lost the battery charger that plugs into AC outlet. Assuming we can just charge it by plugging it into computer via USB? Where would we find an AC battery charger for it?
