My Nikon S4000 (black) won't charge. I've tried plugging and unplugging the cable in the socket. I've made sure the cable is connected properly into the camera's port. I've tried charging via the computer...


Follow this order:
when plugging in the camera and then plugging into the compuer does the computer recognise it? If not this is either a bad cable, or not an active USB port, or something has gone wrong interanlly with the camera. Internal can be anything from bad voltage chip to bad battery. But some people have put the battery in backwards or with the positive terminal the wrong way. Double check that this has not happened, as anyone could have done it, unless you live alone. Try another computer and see if it recognises that camera if so the cable is good and you can continue to trouble shoot in other areas.

The battery itself won't charge in-camera like a cell phone-- you'd need to remove the battery and plug it into the supplied charger (EH-68P). You may have an ac adapter for the camera that basically would just be used to power the camera without a battery or for long periods of time without relying on the battery. It wouldn't be used to charge the camera.

When I attempt to download photos onto my laptop I either get a message saying the USB hub cannot take the power level required or there is no recognition at all. Any suggestions?


You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

How do i charge my camera so that i can explore


You can charge the battery in two ways.

Use the supplied battery charger. Remove the battery from the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a power outlet.

Connect the camera via a USB cord to a powered USB outlet. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge the battery. You might want to consider a cell phone charger that plugs into a power outlet.

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....


How old is the battery? If the battery is refurbished or old it might just not charge anymore.

Also, do you have a separate charger for the battery? Many cameras do and that is how they charge, not when the battery is still in the camera.

Can you trickle charge the Olympus FE-20 via the usb cable?


Very few cameras will charge through USB ports. This is only to connect to computer to access pictures. Your camera will not charge via USB. I suggest to many people that using cameras that take AA batteries is the best cameras to buy when traveling. Many camera owner fall victim to different voltage outlets when travelling.
