Question about Gateway DC-T50 Digital Camera
My digital camera has an internal charger for it lit ion battery pack. When I plug it in the charge button would turn red, according to the manual it was time for a new battery, I purchased a new battery and the same thing happened. The charge indicator light turns red and the battery won't charge. Is the charger shot or is there any hope. Thanks.
This isn't the best soulution but it worked for me. I cleaned off the contacts on the battery and when I placed it back in the camera I put a small piece of a thick rubber band under the door and closed it. This forced the battery farther onto the camera terminals and I was able to get a full charge on the battery.

I had three of these cameras inherited from a project. All of them exhibited this problem to some degree, so I suspect it's a design issue. Note, though, that there are after-market chargers available for the battery. The same battery is used in several other cameras. Search online using the battery number to find the chargers. They are less than $30.00.

Well. Ive got the same problem only ive gone thru 3 batteries trying to figure out what the problem is. When i plug it in to charge the light turns red , then within 5 sec's turns green. It stays green but never charges the battery. After 24 hours, its still a dead battery. Im just assuming since its 5 years old that the internal charger is shot. Looking for a new camera at this time.
