    Same story...

  • Jenaliciousz Nov 05, 2008

    Mine also does this and my camera is less than a year old... My mother has the same one, and it also does this. We put the battery in the charge, the light comes on for a few seconds, then dies out. I can't use the camera because their is always just enough battery life for one or two pics before it will shut off. Very disappointed with Sony.

Battery charger red charging light blinks once then goes out


Do the batteries charge? Are they charged? The green indicator normally is the status signal that the battery is charged and the red indicates that the battery needs charging or is charging. If you plug in a charged battery, some chargers will flash red momentarily then go out. This is an indication that the charger checked the battery (red light) and if the charge is good, the red light will go out. I hope this helps you.

Some units will charge with the light on and when it reaches full capacity the light goes off preventing overcharging the battery. Now! you mentioned that the battery had charged, how long did the battery run? "should be around 2 hours" If you find the light comes back on to recharge the battery then this probably normal. But if the battery is ready to be charged and no light comes on, then it indicates the charging circuits in the motherboard is not working.

There's no fuse problem with that computer, try this first, Plug in the charger to an outlet don't plug it in the laptop, if the light on the charger turns on, then the charger is working try to plug it on the computer if the light on the charger goes out there's a problem with your motherboard. Contact the tech support for that so you can get that part replaced.
To double check try to use a known good charger if it works then you'll need another charger if not, Then contact your tech support for your dell make sure you still have a warrant.

Hope this helps!

Plugging 18v battery onto charger....it goes into pre charge mode (no lights) and stays there. Won't charge. Good power to charger and same results with two different batteries.


Either all of these batteries are at end-of-life or the charger internals are defective. Try a known-good battery first, then look into the charger with a voltmeter. The charger should deliver several volts higher than the rated voltage of the battery when the battery is inserted.

First thing check that the battery charge light is on when the battery and the charger are connected.
If it is it indicates that the power supply is charging the battery,
If it isnt it may indicate a fault with the battery or that the charger is not compatable with the laptop or that there is a fault with the charger.
If the battery is charging then try running the laptop on battery only without the charger and on charger only without the battery.
This will eliminate which one is faulty.

You mentioned that if you wiggle the cord then the light comes on again.
Check to see if the charger end plug is lose or the actual port on the laptop is lose.
If the charger plug is lose then return to seller and make sure they gave you the correct charger. if the actual port on laptop is lose then perhaps u got a bad connection and you need electrician or local laptop technician to open it up and solder properly on motherboard.

Let me know how it goes.

Won't charge


If you have a good power supply/charger, then the battery pack is bad. It is common and even more common in newer electronics since new parts are made cheaper.

I plug in my ds light to charge and the orange


If your DS is 2.5 to 3 years old, the battery may be bad. Lithium Ion batteries expire 3 years after their date of factory production, so they need to be replaced occasionally.

Also, if there is a kink or break in the electrical cord, it could cause problems. The only real solution, aside from tearing the cord apart and resoldering or taping the severed ends, is to purchase a new charging cord.

If the battery is already 100% charged, it may not display a charging light.

New Hitachi 3.6v HXP EBM315 Li-ion battery won't take a charge


Does it seems like the new battery takes a charge? If not, then as good as Hitachi's are...it sounds like a defective battery to me. Should be able to warranty for you no prob.

If you have a buddy, check it in his charger. Or possibly try a charger in the store if they have a demo.
