    My battery died for the first time since I've owned it. I charged it for a full night and my camera won't turn on. This is so frustrating... I've only had the camera for 4 months.

    My camera worked fine the last time I connected to my computer to download pictures.  Now I can't get it to do anything - even after charging for days.

    Camera will not turn on. I have switched batteries with other cameras and the problem follows my camera. The battery is fine.

    Nothing happens when you slide the switch to the ON position.

Very low battery life


I have the same camera. It sounds to me that there is a fault with the camera itself and not the battery. You might be better sending Canon an email and asking them. My battery lasts forever so I would think if you already purchased another battery you've eliminated that problem. It might be the contacts inside the camera that are not accepting the full charge. Does the camera battery on screen show that it's full after you've charged it? Maybe trying charging it overnight and then trying it out the next day.

Alright so i wanted to know if i can charge my Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z700 Digital Camera without the actual charger but just plug it into my computer and it'll charger that way. i've tried this...


No. You need to plug the camera into the cradle and plug the cradle into a wall outlet. Connecting the camera to the computer merely drains the battery faster, as the camera has to spend juice communicating (or trying to communicate) with the computer, even if only to say it has nothing to say.

Bought a Nikon Coolpix S3000 (orange) for my daughter after Christmas. It just stopped working one day; wouldn't charge, no lights or come on. The battery it came with is a Nikon lithium ION Battery...


Read page 16 of the manual. Do not use any other charger with this camera. Are you sure you have the battery inserted correctly? When trying to charge, does the green light blink? If so, when it stops blinking and turns off, the battery should be fully charged. Do not attempt to turn the camera on while the charger is trying to charge the battery.

My battery for canon camera 550d flashes orange when charging, its been 4 hours now and it hasnt turned green yet.. I am charging it first time.. is this normal


Okay what happens sometimes is the charger gets into a feed back loop. What to do is remove the battery unplug the charger wait a few seconds (Maybe 20/30) plug the charger back into the outlet and then put the battery back in the charger. It should start to charge again and a few minutes later go to the blinking for full charge green.

It'll happen the other way as well meaning if the battery gets a memory (they say they don't but they do) you need to unplug the battery let is sit till it's cool and put it back on charge again. I've had this problem many times and have put it on charge and back off several times with in 15 minutes before it started to charge as it should.

Also these batteries do have a life span and if it's a three year old battery with many charges it could be failing meaning it just won't take a full charge.

My camera won't charge, i plug it into the computer throught the USB & the camera lights up like it's actually charging but after a cpl hours I took it off the USB & as soon as i cut it on it cuts...


The C1033 does NOT charge batteries. By plugging it into the computer you've actually drained the batteries faster since the camera has to spend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). Put in a fresh set of batteries, and next time don't leave it connected to your computer.

Hey Sophia,

Have you checked the battery, as the problem seems to be with battery

First of all checked if the battery is inserted properly

Take it off and re-insert it... make sure the +ve and -ve are set properly

If it still does not work...you got to replace the battery

Thanks

Short battery life


Hi,

If you are experiencing short battery life with a rechargeable batteries try the ff:

  • recondition the battery by draining the battery
  • charge the battery but when it is full reconnect the charger (do this until the charging indicator is not lighting even if you reconnect the charger)
  • try to use other batteries
Thanks
Hope this help
