Question about Casio Exilim EX-V7 Digital Camera

Battery Charging Problem

I am unable to charge my V7 via the charger cradle. I have tried both the original battery and a spare I have, but the cradle charger light is always flashing green. According to the manual, this means the charger is on standby, and the batteries do not recharge. To actually charge the camera, the light needs to be solid red, until the battery is charged, when it then goes green. There is no advice on how to get the cradle out of this 'standby' mode. Any help please! I can't use my camera!

First of all I would make sure that the battery is in correctly. There should be an arrow on the battery that should line up with a plus sign on the battery door. Once the battery is installed correctly then place the camera on the charger and the light should be a solid red. If that still doesn't work then I would be more inclined to think that you may have a defective charger. I would call Casio repairs and see what they can do to help you.

Hey


The sidekick has an issue with its charging port going bad. Do you get the orange light when you plug it in?

It about 80 dollars to get fixed or you can do a workaround for about 30 dollars.
What you need to get is a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. This will you allow to charge your battery seperate from the phone. I also recommend getting a second battery so one can be charging at all times.
Here are some links for the charger and the batteries:

Stevey-

The sidekick ID charging port can go bad like the sidekick 3's. An easy workaround is to get an external cradle that has a spare battery charging slot.

The trick is that the sidekick 3 and sidekick ID batteries are the same so the sidekick ID battery can be charged by the external cradle. An extra battery is a good idea as well so you can have ine charging at all times.

The sidekick 3 has a known issue with the charging port going bad. The orange light will usually come on but it doesn't charge the battery.

you can try www.cellulardr.com or you can do a work around that will cost less.

Most people will buy a cradle charge that has a built in spare battery charging slot. This allows you to charge the battery seprate form the phone. ?It is about 25 dollars on ebay. Its also a good idea to get a spare battery so you can have one charging at all times.

Is the orange light coming on but you have no power? If so, then it is probably not charging. The sidekick 3 charging port is notorious for going bad. The little contacts that send power to battery come loose.

Find a friend that has a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID and try out their battery. If it powers up, it is your charging port.

The easiest thing to do is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charging slot. They run about 25 dollars off off ebay and allows you to charge the battery seperate from the phone. A spare battery is good too as it allows you to have one charging at all times.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with thte charging port. If you have a friend with a sidekick 3 or sidekick ID, try one of their batteries. If your unit powers on, the charging port has gone bad.

the repair for a charginf port runs about 80-100 dollars. A cheaper work around is to get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger slot. They run about 30 dollars on ebay and it will allow you to charge the bettery seperate from the phone.

Sidekick 3 Charger.


The Sidekick 3 is notorious for having the charging port go bad. New battery or charger doesn't help when this is the issue.

YOu can get it fixed for around 100 dollars or ou can get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger. Since you have an extra battery it will work well for you. They are about 30 dollars from ebay.

T-mobile phone Not Charging


to where are you connecting the charger?
how old is the charger? maybe the cable its broken in the inside... this usually happens at the ends of the cables or if there is a little bump somewhere..
try connecting them and play with them by moving them a little at the ends.... so there will be better a contact..
