Question about Toshiba PDR-M60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Batteries AND ac adapter?

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?

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.

How do i know if my sl600 is charging? I have it pluggedin with the usb cable attached to the ac adapter. and the tiangular shape is orange. Does this mean its charging and how do i know when its complete


I'm glad to provide the information about charging the Camera. You can charge the Camera either using AC adapter or by connecting to the USB port on the Computer. Please make sure that you're not connecting AC adapter to the Camera when connecting to USB port on the computer. You can connect the Camera to the computer for more than 150 minutes(two and half hours) to fully charge the battery.

You can check the status of the LED on the AC Adapter while charging with the AC Adapter.

Install new battery and sd card and cut it on and it when it come it goes right back off


Be sure to charge the battery first. New batteries are usually not charged when shipped (fire hazard).

does the camera work with the AC power adapter? If it works fine with the ac power adapter the problem is most likely the battery. Not charged or bad.

I have sony cybershot dsc 10 digital camera but it dsn't power on batery charge is full


Hi,

Please make sure that the Battery in the Camera is fully charged.
Please check if the issue is with the battery charger. Make sure that the Charge Lamp in the Battery Charger is lit when connected to the Wall outlet.
You can try recharging the battery pack for almost 6 hours as initial charging.
If you've another battery pack, try using the same to check if the issue is with the Camera or with the battery.
You can also try turning on the Camera by connecting the optional ACL-S5K AC Adapter. This Adapter can be used for turning on the Camera, it cannot be used to charge the battery pack. For charging the battery in the Camera, the supplied battery charged needs to be used.
If the Camera is not turning on using both the AC Adapter and new battery, then the Camera may require service.

Is it an original Fuji part, your new AC adapter?
It sound like it's not powerfull enough. The ERR error is normally related to low batteries.

  3. Remove power from the camera as described below:
    • If you are using only batteries for power, open the battery/memory card door and remove both batteries.

  4. Wait for 15 seconds. Then reinsert the batteries and close the battery/memory card door or reconnect the HP AC power adapter to the camera. If you are using both batteries and AC power, try each method separately.
Turn the camera on and off. If the issues is not resolved do the following

The only functioning modes are the picture viewing & set up modes


Have Sony DSC-P73 with exact problem. Only turns on in SETUP mode and when switches to all other modes camera shuts off usually with lens extended. Have tried new batteries - new memory stick - new everything and nothing helped. I just took out the batteries and attached the AC ADAPTER and all works perfectly now so problem is with either batteries - battery compartment or battery connections. As long as you do not need a "PORTABLE" camera, using AC Adapter solves this problem :)

Samsung s1030 will not retract lense and bleeps 3 times then no response - batteries are fully charged


Try hard reset . Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . Sometimes this may work

Another chance is that lens is struck

* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris

* If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away

* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off

This should work.

Try this alternate solution (got information from HP )

  • Turn off the camera, if possible.
  • If an SD memory card is installed, remove the card.
  • Remove power from the camera as described below:
  1. If you are using only batteries for power, open the battery/memory card door and remove both batteries.
  2. If you are using only the AC power adapter, disconnect it from the camera.
  3. If you are using both batteries and the AC power adapter, remove both batteries and the power adapter.
  • Wait for 15 seconds. Then reinsert the batteries and close the battery/memory card door or reconnect the AC power adapter to the camera. If you are using both batteries and AC power, try each method separately.

  • Turn the camera on and off. If the lens does not retract correctly or the camera does not turn on,


You need to take to service center .

Kodak Camera V610 easy share


Hi!
This is what I need you to try..
If you're using a 5v ac adapter to charge the camera's battery - please hook it to the camera WITHOUT THE BATTERY in it. The 5v ac adapter can be an alternative power supply.

Turn on the camera - check if it would do the same thing - like lighting up, making a noise (attempting to extend the lens) and closes. If it does, the camera needs to be sent in for repair.

visit www.kodak.com/go/itg to arrange repair

If you are using a photoframe dock2 or camera dock series 3 to recharge the camera's batt - use its 5v ac adapter. It will work with the cam. Make sure, the batt is not in it to check the cam's condition, isolating the possible interference of the battery.

If the camera works fine - when the AC adapter is attached, no battery in it - consider buying a new battery.

V610 is a very nice camera, but it was manufactured in 2006. If you have not replaced the battery yet, it might just need to be replaced. Even Li-ion rechargeable batteries wear out eventually - it can only last up to 300 charging cycles.

If you're using a batt that is less than a year old, the cam might just need to be sent in for service.

Won't go on


Hey ghgyu,
I would first make sure you have the batteries installed correctly. If you are using a camera dock or you have an AC adapter cord I would try removing the batteries and try turning the camera on while connected to the camera dock or plugged into an outlet with the AC adapter cord. If the camera works this way I would then try cleaning the battery contacts with a soft cloth or an eraser. If none of this works I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Won't turn on


Ouch! You can't use an AC adapter with any battery-operated equipment you choose to just because the plug fits physically. The A70 requires 5-6 volts, and a Pavilion adapter typically puts out 18 volts. You most probably blew out your Canon's power supply within a few seconds, unless it's fused somehow. Next stop: tech support/repair shop/camera cemetery. Sorry.
