Re: not charging?

Hi here is the home page of your camera download its driver and read the manual : i belive the problem is the connection between the metal surfaces in the camera and the metal tabs in the deck make sure the tabs are upright and elastic (after many uses they squashed a little) good luck

Kodak easyshare m320 charge light is green, but not charged

Hello Dead Battery, Well this sounds pretty easy compared to most questions I get. If the camera says the battery is dead, then the battery is dead !! the problem with batteries is they loose their capacity over time. The charger can not put any more in it and says it is charged. Just get a new one and give it a full charge and this should do the trick.
Best Regards, Russell

Samsung sl605 wont turn on

A charging battery's light is red. If it turns green then it means it is fully charged. Since you had stored your battery for a while, try to charge it by using a battery charger to kickstart it. It should work. Whatever transpires let me know. thanks and rate this answer.

Hi, I'd suggest using a wall charger as they're able to provide more power to charge then a computers USB port. Often with camera's the USB port doesn't supply enough power so the camera doesn't charge at all.

Screen black. Power light on unit flashes red slowly. Power light on switching adaptor power supply flashed green slowly.

Sounds like the battery might be low which would cause the red flashing light and dark screen. Let it charge for a little bit then try turning it on again. If it still does it with the power supply plugged in, make sure there isn't a lens cover on it, and switch modes or try getting into the menu to see if you can get anything to come up. If that still doesn't work then it sounds like there might be a problem with the camera.

Hi, as per your information your camera 2 years old but not used much. You buy a new battery 1st time when you charged you see the gree light. But camera not working. When you try to charge the battery again you seen the red light. Its mean your charger have a problem. So what you do now? Ok try these.
Remove the power connection of the charger. then fixed the battery there slowly & properly. After that plug on the charger again. If the same thing happens then unplug the charger & plug in in different point. Then see what showing. If again red light then wait 1 hours and waiting for green signal. If there is no green signal showing then visit a service center with your charger. Tell them your problem. They will fixed the charger for you. Don't worry your camera is ok.
Your new battery or your charger one of then damaged. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

My 24280 dig. Wont charge

the pc function means that it is connected to your computer this is good because now you should be able to upload pics and ect...the red light is simply to show its charge level and is always on when plugged in to computer also there should be a switch on the side to change from camera to charge if its on charge and the light is red then its carging and it will turn green when its done.

Battery Charger Olympus li-40c

I had this problem a few weeks ago (i.e. flashing red LED). All I did was remove the power plug from the charging unit, turned it around 180 degrees, then plugged it back into the charging unit. Red LED came on steady & the battery (which is the one that came with the camera) recharged as normal.

sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
