Having problems with your Toshiba PDR-M60 Digital Camera ?
Batteries AND ac adapter?
\015 I'm new to digital cameras. i want to save by not using batteries, but my camera will not work with just the attached to an ac adapter plugged in. do all cameras need batteries AND a plugged in ac adapter in order to work? do i need to charge it by leaving it charging, plugged into the camera? then will it work without batteries and just an ac adapter? might i have an ac adapter that doesn't work? how does one test if an ac adapter is working?\015
Make sure the ac adaptor ius the right polarity for the camera, negative outside plug and positive centre,also make sure the voltage output of the charger is correct 5 volts dc.You do not need batteries as well as the charger.

Argus Bean camera comes with uncharged battery but no ac adapter. Argus faq say adapter not necessary because battery holds long charge. Should I buy a new battery or an ac adapter and charge the current battery?

I bought a power adapter for the camera, but it doesn't seem to work without batteries in the unit. If I use the batteries alone, I will eventually get a red blinking light at the back of the camera, indicating low battery power, hence the purchase of a power adapter. When using both power adapter and batteries, the red light on the front of the camera is illuminated. The green light on the back of the camera is blinking. The camera seems to work fine while recording video. But why won't th

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?
The camera does NOT charge the battery. You do need to use a separate battery charger, such as one available from here. ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300 Digital Camera
Won't work Have a C875 for a year now, and it has been working just fine. The other day I decided to try a AC adapter on it. Well, the AC adapter I used is one of those variable voltage ones. I set the voltage for 3 volts, plugged it in, it doesn't work. O.K. I put the batteries back in, still don't work. And, to top it off, the batteries get hot. Took the camera apart and I don't see anything burned up. Lost. Any help on what the solution could be and how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
Oh no maybe you used different adaptor some adaptor have reverse polarity. check the adaptor before plugging it..if you using variable voltage set to 3v then adjust also the polarity. the polarity should match the polarity of your camera. ... Kodak EasyShare C875 Digital Camera

A/C adapter Just received my first digital camera,the 2020.Should it be fully funtional with the A/C adapter plugged in and no batteries or is it necessary that there be batteries in the camera and the A/C just takes over when it is plugged in.With just the A/C the viewfinder on top the camera shows some info but no other camera functions seem to work.Don't know if there's a problem or this is how it's supposed to be.
The camera should be fully functional with just the AC adapter. I hope you're using the Olympus adapter and not a substitute. Some substitutes will work ok but others can cause problems. The AC adapter output should be 6.5 volts at 2000 ma (2 amps). ... Olympus Camedia C-2020 Zoom Digital Camera

The manual says "your camera comes with a compatible charger, your only required to put the battery into the charger and charge the lithium battery directly from the outlet" The camera came with an AC adaptor which goes into the outlet. Is this the battery charger ? if so there is nowhere to put the battery it only has a usb cable input on the adapter

Hi , My Fuji S9600 has just refused to power-up using batteries, although it still powers-up and operates correctly when i attach the mains PSU adapter. I wonder if this is a common occurrence on this model and how easy it is to get sorted. I have used rechargeable batteries since the camera was new (approx 3 yrs) and have tested the batteries as V.good. So i'm assuming that the problem is with the camera somewhere. Do you think if i reset the camera in the menu that would cure the problem , or

Fuji s9000 problem, it won't turn on with the ac supply at all. The last time I used my camera I put in some rechargeable batteries (new ones) while the camera had the ac adapter connected, I was just seeing if the new batteries had charge on them or not. Well, after a while I came back to my photo booth and my camera had a white screen (lcd) and so I unplugged it at that time thinking maybe it was charging the batteries or something.

I have a digital Sony Mavica FD-95, when I insert a floppy disk into the drive, it reads as "disk protected" when the disk is not protected. Also, when I insert the adapter for the memory stick [64 meg] it reads "disk error" [flashing: C:13:01]. [Disk Protect] In both instances, I double confirmed that the media was NOT write/copy protected & I have replaced the batteries in the MSAC-FD2M memory stick/floppy adapter. Can this be fixed?
