Having problems with your Nikon Coolpix S51c Digital Camera ?

WILL CAMERA CHARGE CONNECTED THROUGH USB INTO THE COMPUTER OR IS THE DOCK FOR THE CHARGER THE ONLY WAY


Answers :

The S51c will NOT charge through the USB port. The camera does not include any charging circuitry, which is why it comes with a separate battery charger. Connecting the USB port only drains the battery faster, as the camera now has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

The included charger isn't the only way... you can get third-party chargers that will let you charge, for example, from a car cigarette lighter. But you do need to use a charger, not the USB port.

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.

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.

I can't get the photos in my Pentax OptioS6 to download into my computer. When I try, the computer says that it does not recognize what kind of camera it is connected to.
