Camera Won't Charge Fully

Hi, I have a Kyocera S3L which appears to charge correctly. The charge light turns greed but when I try to use it I can only get half a dozen shots before it tells me that there is no power and it automatically shuts down. I have replaced the battery with a brand new one but still no joy. Any ideas? Thanks! Marcus.

SOURCE: battery life

I bought a few SL400R.. yes I think this is the best camera ever. The battery that came with the cameras always would last very short time, especially in cold weather. But when I ordered new ones online, these would last very long. The specs of the new batteries are the same as the original ones. Go figure. After that I ordered external charger too, so I dont need to use the camera's built-in charger. Works very well.

My camera won't turn on? Its been awhile!

Try to fully charge the battery, preferably in an exterior charging unit. If the battery doesn't take a charge properly ( depletes quickly) it can stop a camera from starting.

If you already tried that here is a link to some YouTube repair tips:

I have a Finepix xp50, with a fully charged, correctly installed battery, that won't turn on. It worked intermittantly for awhile. We have 3 batteries for this camera thinking it was the battery

Be sure your battery is in the right way. Try reversing it. My battery has 3 rounded corners and one square corner. The square corner goes against the latch.

Nikon Coolpix S8100 battery won't charge

I have had mine for over 3 years and this just started happening. I bought a new battery and it seemed to fix the problem for about a week but is doing it again. It seems like it won't fully charge now like it formerly did!

hi,,the charging time is 2 to 3 hours and it depends on the battery that you already consumed, but the only way and not to timed the charging by the indicator light on the usb cable.if green lights appear the battery was fully charged.

Camera won't turn on.

Make sure the battery contacts are clean. The rechargable batteries looses their charge even when they are not in use. It is important to fully charge the first time the rechargable batteries.

Camera won't charge


It's a problem with the battery. It already reached it's life cycle. I had the same problem with my 15 month old casio camera a year ago - flashing red light on docking station. I even tried borrowing a docking station/charger to see if something else is wrong with it.

The only solution for this is to have the battery replace.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

Kyrocera finecam S3L

sounds like a connection from a ribbon cable or connector that connects the LCD to the curcuitry. Best this is twist or tap on side of camera to see if it changes and if it does and you feel comfortable taking apart tiny electronics lke this Go for it clean the connector(s) running from the LCD BUT I warn you if your not expereanced to do this I would contact the manufacturer as most companys have flat rates on most repairs.
