Battery doesnt charge!

I bought my camera a week ago and since then i havent been able to charge the internal battery. When i put the battery into the charger the light flashes red and it doesnt charge. I have tried to hold it in, hold it out, use different plug etc but to no avail. All the instructions say is red light on - charging, no light on - not charging but there is no troubleshoot option on offer. Please help!!

Buy a decent camera emily. take it back if it doesnt work.. or stick it in a drawer somewhere, and try to ignore it. that seems to work for you..

You bought it a week ago, and you're on the internet asking for advice? eh.. take it back. its got nothing to do with the connection. it sounds like the battery is DEAD. dead dead. did it work for a while after you got it home, then stop responding? its a duff battery. i'm sure alternatively, buy an instant camera.. anyway.. yes, take it back, receipt or not. look on ebay for a new battery. there WILL be one there.

I bought this camera only a couple of months ago. I used it at a maximum three times, but at late it wont charge. I have multiple USB chargers and have used them all, but still wont charge :(


Hi, Check the connections for tightness and use a volt/ohm meter to check for charging voltage. Anywhere between 6v and 12v. If you suspect charger, replace with same kind and Voltage output.
Also check battery(s). replace if dead. After many battery uses. They can have an internal discharge and will not work properly any more.
Good luck.

Well if you have bought the right battery and the proper charger this sounds very odd, did the amp hr and every say the same details on the battery & charger as the old one? when you charge the camera how long was it till you used the camera? as Sony cameras lose around 30% charge per week, I know because I have a Sony still camera and movie, both lose charge, my still camera goes flat in 3 weeks after a full charge with no use at all, so they are never good bits of equipment with batterys.

Hi, as per your information your camera 2 years old but not used much. You buy a new battery 1st time when you charged you see the gree light. But camera not working. When you try to charge the battery again you seen the red light. Its mean your charger have a problem. So what you do now? Ok try these.
Remove the power connection of the charger. then fixed the battery there slowly & properly. After that plug on the charger again. If the same thing happens then unplug the charger & plug in in different point. Then see what showing. If again red light then wait 1 hours and waiting for green signal. If there is no green signal showing then visit a service center with your charger. Tell them your problem. They will fixed the charger for you. Don't worry your camera is ok.
Your new battery or your charger one of then damaged. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

Canon 400d new batteries installed but will still not turn on.


Might seem obvious but check that the green light on the charging unit showed that the battery was fully charged before you put it in the camera. Make sure that the memory card is fully seated in the slot. If ok then either the charger is not charging or the on/off switch is faulty.

Battery Charger Olympus li-40c


I had this problem a few weeks ago (i.e. flashing red LED). All I did was remove the power plug from the charging unit, turned it around 180 degrees, then plugged it back into the charging unit. Red LED came on steady & the battery (which is the one that came with the camera) recharged as normal.

Not charging


It sounds like Amazon might have sold you a defective charger radio shack has a universal charger for your battery. Around 49.00 I got one and it works great I would first have you battery tested by a place like batteries plus to make sure yours is good.
