Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-CD500 Digital Camera ?

Hi hmlee, and thank you for your help. A few more details on my Mavica. We were taking pictures outside in the cold. When we came in the battery was drained, which the manual says may be due to the cold. My daughter plugged it in for a charge but dropped in in doing so. It would no longer charge...not sure if that was due to the cold or the drop. After trouble-shooting, we thought it might just be due for a new battery, so we bought one, but it only flashed when plugged in to charge. We bought a

Answers :

Hmmm .. when it was dropped it might have bent the spring contact that connects to the battery terminals when its plugged in .. you might be able to see that with a small flashlight inside the camera . you hope not but it could have broken the plastic that holds that contact .. if its just bent you can carefully rebend the spring so that it makes good contact . there is also the possibility that the new battery is discharged below the threshold where the charger will start .. thats a safety feature on some chargers .. if the voltage gets too low then it wont initiate charge .. that could cause overheating in old damaged batteries . if that is the case then you can "jump start the battery" .. to give it enough charge to allow the charger to take over .. its not a safe thing to do if you are not a bit skilled with electricity .. but you can jump a standard 9 volt battery across your new battery for a few seconds (10 or 20 seconds should be enough .... you must make absolutly certain that the + and - termanals match . if you hook it up backward then you can damage the new battery .. once the battery has gotten a little charge then when you hook it up to your charger it should take over and fully charge the battery .. fresh replacement batterys come with enough charge but if they are in stock for a long time they might be delivered discharged .. you can check them if you know anyone with a volt meter .. it should read 7.2 volts .. if it read above 5 volts then you probably dont need the jump start .. less than than that you do .. if you dont feel comfortable doing these things then you might look to see if there is a Ham radio operator in your neighborhood .. or maybe an electrician or TV service shop ...

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?

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

My camera won't turn on. I charge it and the red charging light comes on. I have returned the camera for the same problem 3 times. bought it from WalMart. I was on my vacation the 1st time it happened, and Walmart gave me a hard time about exchanging it. The 1st one I got, it charged and I got it to stay on for a few min.

Two things....my approx.18 month old battery died and i bought a replacement yesterday. is this the normal life expectancy? 2nd. Today, with a totally charged battery, I took eight pictures. Later I wanted to review the pics and when I pushed the on/off button, the lens came out but no image appeared. I could not shut off the camera, so had to pop the battery out. I am not sure now if the lens went back in. I pushed the on button again and the lens moved out; the display lit up with the message

Hi recently bought a fujiilm ax200 and i used regular Duracell batteries just to test out the camera.

Although this camera will work when plugged into the mains and functions normally, it will not work off its battery - I have bought a new batttery and the camera does not seem to be able to charge it - just like the original battery. No lights flash at all.

"check connections" I just got a Casio Ex-Z77 and am trying to upload my photos for the first time to my PC.
