The DSC-P50 does have a built in charger. You need the Sony AC-LS1A to recharge an infolithium battery in this camera. The AC charger plugs in the bottom left of the camera as you hold it for taking pictures. The battery has to be a rechargable infolithium. If you try recharging any other type it will not recharge or worse cause a fire/explosion from an over heated battery. I have used this type of charge on a Sony NP-FS11 Infolithium battery for over 6 years. I have finally had to replace the battery with a new one.

You need a separate battery charger for this camera. It does not have a battery charger built into the camera itself and can not be recharged thru any cords connected directly to the camera. The USB cords only transfer the files to the computer, they don't recharge the camera.

My friend gave me a powershot 600 but i dont have charger for it i dont even know if it works can i use a usb cord and charge it on my laptop


That's still a nice camera. No, you can't charge it through the USB port. Luckily, the Canon battery that it uses is very common, with many inexpensive generic options available for the battery and charger. Here's a new battery with charger from Amazon. And you'll also need a 2GB SD card if one didn't come with the camera. Do not buy anything larger than 2GB as it will not work with your model camera. Finally, here's the Basic user manual for your camera, and if you want to get fancy with it, here's the advanced user manual.

How do I charge the battery?


You can actually charge this camera right from your computer's USB port. Use the small, rectangular hole and plug the small end of the USB cord into that and the other end into the USB port in your computer or laptoip. The green charging light should come on but the computer won't recognize new hardware since you don't need to turn the camera on. In fact, it will charge faster if you leave it off, so you can just leave that plugged in for a few hours and go about your business.
Hope that helps. Good luck. :)

Lens error and camera battery not charging.


SORRY TO SAY, BUT I AM READING HORROR STORIES ABOUT THIS MODEL OF CAMERA AND IT'S CHARGING OR LACK OF CHARGING SYSTEM. IT SEEMS IT IS A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THE M853 AND ABOUT THE ONLY SOLUTION PEOPLE ARE FINDING IS USING A SEPARATE CHARGING BAY. IT SEEMS THAT VISTA HAS A POWER MANAGEMENT SYSTEM ON USB PORTS THAT TURNS OFF THE POWER ON UN-USED USB PORTS AND THAT IS WHY THEY ARE NOT CHARGING. YOU NEED TO GO INTO THE USB PORT SETTINGS AND RIGHT CLICK THEM AND DISABLE THE SETTING THAT ALLOWS THEM TO SHUT DOWN POWER TO THE USB PORTS. IT ALSO SEEMS THAT THERE IS A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH THE MAIN BATTERIES IN THE M853 FROM THE VERY FIRST TIME YOU TRY TO CHARGE THEM. THEY SEEM TO NOT WANT TO TAKE A CHARGE. I KNOW ALL THIS IS BAD NEWS BUT GO TO GOOGLE AND PUT KODAK EASYSHARE M853, NOT CHARGING AND READING THE STORIES FOR YOURSELVES. THEY ARE NOT PRETTY. BEST ADVICE I CAN OFFER IT SEEMS IS SEPARATE CHARGING STATION AND DEDICATED USB PORT YOU KNOW IS HOT. GOOD LUCK ON THIS ONE. IF THE CAMERA IS FAIRLY NEW, I WOULD CONSIDER RETURNING IT! THIS ONE HAS A REALLY BAD TRACK RECORD. IF I CAN HELP MORE, REPLY TO: ARCLIGHT1217

Usb cord won't fit all of a sudden


Something could have broke off inside the connector. Try to look in side and see if there is anything blocking the connection. Tweezers can help out and pull out stuff that is blocking. Make sure that the camera is powered off. Better remove the battery to play it safe also. Check the condition of the USB cable that goes into the camera make sure it's not bent or dented. You can use a small needle nose pliers to fix that if it is.
