Having problems with your Samsung Digimax L730 Digital Camera ?

CAMERA WILL NOT CHARGE UP, I PLUG THE CHARGER IN AND IT FLASHES ORANGE BUT ITS NOT CHARGING THE CAMERA, WHAT IS WRONG?


Answers :

If you've recently changed the batteries, make sure that you have the right kind for your camera and that they're installed properly. That said, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries\015\012or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the\015\012batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your\015\012batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

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?

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?

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.

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

The camera is only a few months old, and has only really been used constantly for three days. It had it's initial full power up, but since then I haven't been able to charge it at all.

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.

I have a Sony DSLR-300. I lost the separate battery charger and bought an AC adapter that plugs directly into the camera. When I plug it into the adapter a red light comes on for 1 second then shuts off. The camera turns on while plugged in but won't stay on when I unplug it after I've had it on charge for 30 minutes. Any suggestions? I'm not even sure if the battery charges through plugging it in directly to the outlet rather than a separate battery charger?
