Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G2 Digital Camera ?

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge

\015 Hello\015\012\015\012I got a brand new compatible battery for my G2 and it worked just fine for a couple of months. Now, when I plug my charger in, the charging light indicator doesn't flash and the bettery doesn't charge. However, with the charger plugged in I can use the camera fine. As soon as the charger is taken off the camera goes dead.\015\012\015\012Is it that the battery is not charging or something else is wrong? Please advise.\015\012\015\012Thx\015\012Gorki\015\012\015

I think I may have solved MY problem: I ordered (on eBay for 97 cents, mind you) a new BATTERY CHARGER. I charged both batteries and now they seem fine. I must say I have only tried to see if they charged and viewed a few photos. The new charger went from red to green, so now I'm thinking it may be a defect in the charger cable that came with our camera, like the previous poster said! (ie the port inside the camera that connects to the charging).\015\012\015\012\015\012
\015\012I advise trying what I did. Even with shipping it only cost me $8.\015\012This is on their site:\015\012http://store.itrimming.com/bcanbp511cs1.html

I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.

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).

My LI42 battery won't charge for my Olympus 790 SW. The charging light comes on, then flashes, then turns off within about a minute. The battery does not charge at all during this time. My manual does not say anything about a flashing light on the charger and I can't figure out if my battery is the problem or my charger.
