Having problems with your Jazz DV-179 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?

I have an Olympus e510 that I bought new 2 years ago. The other day I got it out to use it and it will not turn on. I purchased a new battery, charged it, and it still will not work. When I removed the battery from the charger the light on the charger was green. I decided after the camera would not turn on I put the battery back on the charger. At that time the charger was showing a red light. Could the charger be going bad?

Hi recently bought a fujiilm ax200 and i used regular Duracell batteries just to test out the camera. Then I purchased rechargeable batteries and the camera for working fine for the five minutes i took photos with it. When trying to upload the photos onto the computer the camera would not turn on.

My Insignia HD Insignia Camcorder won't charge. The battery is in correctly. It won't charge. I plug in the charger and it flashes for a couple hours. It should be good to go right? Wrong, the thing records for less than a minute and then it is completely dead. Oh yeah, I even wasted money on a new battery, same results. Charging via usb to the computer gets me no where. It flashes for 10 seconds then go solid red.

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.

When the battery is in the charger it flashes red & won't charge, have no idea what problem is! Have casio exilim lithium ion NP-20 battery & a casio exilim 7.2 megapixels camera. Can't turn camera on at all, instructions of charger state red light will remain on while battery charging & will turn off when fully charged. Thankyou.


I called casio and they told me that when you have a red flashing light on the charger it means the lithium battery is no longer any good. They offered to send me one free of charge. It's been several weeks and I have yet to receive it. ... Casio EXILIM Digital Camera

I got Canon EOS Kiss 450D (Japan). Recently, the problem i encountered is ERR 99. I have read an article that it might be with the body lense "connection" and some might arise from battery problem. Also, im wondring whenever I charge the battery, after only 20 minutes the charger would blink red and green. Unlike before that when its already full charge it would only change from red to green. So i was thinking the ERR 99 might also be due to the battery. Is this really normal for the charger? Is

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.

My sony cybershot dsc-t200 will not turn on. None of the buttons or switches work. The battery is charged. For a while, it wouldn't turn on unless I put the battery on the charger for a few minutes first. Then it would work for a little while, but after turning it on and off a couple of times, it would die again. Now it just doesn't turn on at all. Any ideas? Could it be the battery?

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).
