Having problems with your Pentax Optio M50 Digital Camera ?

Can you charge the battery while it is inside??

\015 Can you charge the battery while it is inside the camera. We do not have the charger that came with my camera (Pentax Optio50) Can we charge it while it is hooked up to the computer or if we find a wall charger to fit?\015

Answers :

No. The camera does not include any charging circuity. Connecting the camera to a computer merely drains the battery faster.

Nikon d80 dslr camera working fine and then one day turned it on to take pictures only to find an err message flashing and when the shutter button depressed it says r04. The shutter sounds but no pictures are taken. Is this a problem inside the camera that will have to be fixed by a professional?

I did not use my Nikon Coolpix S3 for quite some time. I had left the battery inside the camera. And did not charge the camera for while. Recently I tried switching it on and I found (i) the camera comes to life but the lens cover does not slide in (ii) many of the buttons are not working.(iii) the charging LED does not glow when I put the camera to charge. I checked the battery and it appeared alright to the naked eyes. Please help. Bidyut Roy

Power problem My camera is dead even though it has a fully charged battery inside. You slide the cover back and nothing happens. We tried a different fully charged battery and still nothing. Any ideas? Have the Canon Powershot S30 since many years (some 6000 photos taken) but suddenly the camera is absolutely dead. The lens won't come out when sliding the lens door back, no pictures shown at the monitor when switching the viewing button to the right, no USB connection when connectiong to a P

My fujifilm E550 digital camera has a problem where the cilyndrical piece in front that usually moves in/out is stuck half way (won't go back inside) and the camera will not take pictures. The camera is giving me a "zoom error" message. This problem started when the batteries where running out of charge. The problem is not resolving even when I put in fully charged batteries.


You may need to use some light "force" to manipulate the lens barrel into its proper orientation. Try a combination of turning it on and helping the barrel to rotate one way or the other. Also try a little manipulation when the camera is shut off, to ... Digital Cameras

Battery issue Hi, I've owned this camera for about 1 year. In the last couple of months the red battery icon will flash and the camera will shut down thinking it has dead batteries. The problem is, we may put in brand new batteries or fully charged re-chargable batteries and the icon is there right away. Does the mini battery inside need to replaced? If that isn't the problem then I have no idea what is wrong with thing......my last camera did the same thing (Fugi)

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck. It has no juice at all now. At first I thought the computer inside was tripped. Maybe the salt water affected the batteries? What is the address to mail for repair? Do I have to pay ahead to look at? Is there a minimum charge. Monica [email protected] 619 593 8035

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.

My Olympus Digital Camera Stylus 850 SW is supposedly waterproof, and shockproof, but when i went on vacation, and took it into the water park, and inside the water. It broke. Water got into it even though the sealed containment's, for the battery, memory card, and the usb transfer area were closed. The screen is now fuzzy, and it looks like a broken tv screen (the fuzzy part). It won't turn on, and right now it is making this noise every 21 seconds or so.

Slow camera Thank you for the suggestions. I got the camera about 6 years ago and it worked fine. The problem started recently, over the last few months. It cannot be related to the card, or the processor. They were the same when it worked well. It is charging up very slowly. I think it is either a capacitor or a rechargable battery that lost performance over time. Do you know anything about the inside battery?


Unfortunately, the externals you use are AA's so I'm sure you've tried new ones there.  \015\012The internal battery (or capacitor) is not worth attempting to replace for a camera of that age. You may end up spending more to replace the battery ... Fuji FinePix A303 Digital Camera

Please disregard last question! I was shooting pix in heavy rain and the camera got wet-even inside. I took it apart to dry, but now a freshly charged battery won't power it up. Is all hope lost for this wonderful cam, or is there something I might be able to do to salvage it?
