My Camera stoped recharging for no apparent reason.
My camera was working fine, recharging and everything, up untill a few days ago. I pluged it into the computer like normal but the camera refuses to work. I have had it pluged into the computer for several days now and nothing has changed. I have checked that the batterys are in correctly and the computer continues to respond to the camera when pluged in. Do you think the screen is the problem? Please advise.

Are you sure the battery is charged ? i have seen many Casios that do not recharge fully if the camera is left for long periods with the battery flat - the battery goes below the 'float' level and the charger does not work. See if you can borrow another battery or use a generic charger that does not look at the battery level. A good camera shop should be able to help.
I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!
no problem. your rechargable is not strong enough for this camera. i use rayovac rechargeable from wal-mart and the batteries have to charge for two full days and make sure the light on the charger is off before removing the batteries from the charger. then put them in the camera and it will work perfectly. your batteries aren't strong enough for the camera. go out and get some energizers made just for digitals. they last forever but, they'll do until you get your rayovac rechargeable recharged. and coming right out of the pack they are not charged give it 48 hours and they'll last weeks.
I posted on July 16 with this flashing problem and played around and got mine working again.
Originally I would charge through the docking port. What I did was pull the charged rechargable batteries out of the camera and took the charging cable from the docking station and pluged it directly into the port on the side of the camera. The camera started working again. Then while the charging cable was pluged into the camera, I reinstalled the rechargable batteries. After installing the batteries I unpluged the charging cable and the camera still works. I have shot and downloaded from the camera pictures with no more problems. Use the docking for downloading pictures and the side port on the camera for recharging the batteries.
I do not know if this has anything to do with the original problem but I did not have any problems with this camera until I placed it on the docking station with non-rechargible batteries.
Hope this helps.
I've heard of this issue with more than one Sony (seems like there was a post in the forum not long ago with the same issue...). If you've bought a new battery, the problem would appear to be in the camera's power controller. With that in mind, I'm afraid you'll have to decide if the cost of repair is worth it, rather than simply putting the money toward a new camera.
For some reason, Fuji does not emphasize that if your batteries get low, this is what happens. You just need recharged batteries or new batteries. Be careful with rechargables--before recharging them when this happens, you first have to drain them using the discharge mode of your camera. Then they will take a complete charge. (Good for some 300 charges or so, I believe.) But if you don't discharge them first, they will take less and less of a charge, and last shorter and shorter. If you use regular batteries, they might not last for 50 pics before running out of juice.
Use the viewfinder to take pictures on vacation, then have your camera looked at in a camera shop or repair shop to assess the damage. Might be cheaper to just get a new camera sometimes with labour costs and parts costs these days, but doesn't hurt to get it looked at for free!
Sorry, no solution. Same problem here. I am very unhappy because initially it took great pictures. The first one I tried only worked a couple of days and I returned to store and they replaced. Second worked a couple of months and now immediately draws down power and won't work on new batteries. I was told to use NH-10 batteries (rechargeable). I did this from the beginning. Still won't hold charge.
