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

Camera won't charge red light is on but the green light doesn't come on . What is my problem ? Could it be the battery

hi Kenny.
With most cameras, an amber, yellow, or red light indicates a battery that's currently charging. A blue or green light usually means the battery is charged. A blinking light sometimes indicates a charging error; other times, it indicates a battery that is still charging.or faulty battery.
have you tried,take the battery out and then put it back in?.
make sure the battery is seated.and its making a good contact.

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

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.

When my Motorola H720 is plugged in, the red light is flashing quickly, what could be wrong with this? It does not seem to turn on either....problems?

Red light flashes when I try to charge it and nothing all other times. Doesn't turn on, doesn't work. I pretty sure the problem is that it is a piece of junk.

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 glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean

According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.

Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.

Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:

Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service

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)
