Fugi Z10 I managed to insert the battery in the wrong direction and is stuck now. Is there a straight forward way to remove or is a job for a specialist? After removing battery, which was inserted wrong way, camera is not working, even though battery is charged.. Would the camera be damaged or should I just buy a new battery?

There are two indications of how the batteries are inserted into this camera. One is on the lid ( + and -) and one is within the battery hold. The ones inside the battery holder are completely opposite of what is on the lid. Which one is the right way? I ask because freshly charged batteries are NOT working no matter which way I insert them. There is NO MANUAL with this camera,which I think is a cheap way for Kodak to sell these things. Very dissapointed with this camera.

I've just bought a new DSLR Olympus camera and fully charged the battery. The camera switches on when there is no memory card inserted but as soon as I insert a memory card the camera won't switch on. If I remove the card and try to switch the camera on it still won't turn on, I have to remove the battery, put it back in then switch on the camera. Any ideas what's wrong?

Problem Hi, I just recently purchased a DSC-W50 camera off ebay and I google the battery type and found that this camera uses Sony NP-BG1. I bought the battery from an ebay seller and received it today. I inserted it into the battery slot and I got a message stating " for use with compatible battery only" . I charged it for 2 hours and I got the same message. has anyone had this type of thing happen? Could it be the battery or am I using the wrong battery type. Please advise. Thanks

I bought my canon S5IS 2 years ago.For these 2 years it worked fine but now it is showing "Low battery problem" even when the battery is full charged.I also bought new batteries but that also in vain.I found one workaround but it seems to work for very short time. Just open the battery cover,take out all batteries and then insert ,then turn on,it MAY work for 10 sec.Please suggest what may be wrong and what to do.

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?

I have a SVP T-100 camcorder which all of a sudden stopped working. What is happening is it keeps showing a red light indicating there is no power in the battery and when you connect to the mains it turns green but when you try switching on it goes red again and stays this way!! I have tried a new battery in it and the same thing...the fact that it wont even work from the mains indicates something wrong with the powering getting to the battery or camcorder... Please help.

Battery charging I recieved the Jazz DV179 as a gift. The battery was already in the camera, but I was told that I would have to charge it. I plugged the Camcorder into the wall and left it for over 24 hrs to charge, but when I remove it from the plug it shuts off. If i plug it back into the wall it comes on so i know the camcorder works. I am not sure on how to proceed next. Is there something wrong with the battery?, does the battry need and external charger before you insert it into the camco

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.
