Question about Toshiba PDR-M5 Digital Camera
I just bought a new Toshiba PDR-M5 Digital Camera and according to the manual, when you charge the battery (which is done by plugging in the AC adaptor with the battery in the camera) the LED next to the viewfinder is supposed to be red and it's not. The battery seems to be charging (this is the first use and an out of the box camera etc) According to the indicator showing battery life, it shows half full. I've tried unplugging the camera and plugging it back in but no LED status. I've turned the knob to power on the camera and it goes on but still no LED indication for it charging. I just wondered if anyone else who has the camera can help me out and let me know. Thanks! -- Patty

Hi Pat, When charging the battery the light should definitely be red. When it turns green it's charged. I would exchange your camera for another PDR-M5 if you can. I actually had to do the same thing - noticed a big difference with the second one - including fit and finish....think that maybe Toshiba has a quality control issue. I just returned mine (second one) yesterday - was a hard decision - love the features - 3X zoom - video - speed, etc.....but got fed up with the picture quality indoors - too many out of focus - couldn't count on it. Also all pictures - in/out - tended to be dark - drab looking - always had to lighten using the software before printing. This is a $1250 camera in Canada after tax w/extra 16 meg smartmedia which you need at the minimum so there are no excuses. Hope you have better luck with yours!
