Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ1 Digital Camera
Hi I just bought a refurbished TZ1 off ebay. I put the battery in to charge as the camera wouldnt turn on. The green charger light flashes, i read the manual and it says that if it flashes it means the temprature is too high or too low so it will take longer to charge. I put it on charge and after a whole day i got nothing, neither the charger or battery were warm. Is this the battery or charger? I had to use an adapter to convert the plug from a 2 pin (US) to a 3 pin(Ireland). Could that be the problem ? Thanks
I have the DMC-TZ1. The charger is labelled "Panasonic DE-A25 battery charger". It has 3 contacts where the battery fits in. With no battery in place, the voltage between the top and middle pins is 2.61 V. The voltage between the middle and bottom pins is 2.19 V. Check those voltages. If they are very different from mine, I rather think the charger is not working. You can buy the batteries for very low prices on ebay from Hong Kong and other asian sources, but I've been told by someone who tried them that they do not work. Perhaps you have run into one of those. If you can find someone else with the same battery, a quick swap will tell you if your camera is okay. I got my camera on ebay and it works perfectly.
