    I have the same problem and the camera is dead.

    will Insignia replace the battery for free?

    I dont know how to turn my on and how do i know wen its fully charge

    LED stays red, battery warms up, but the battery doesn't charge up. I pressed the on/off button at the top and I believe it turned off and now of course it won't come on at all either with the battery or without.

    I thought I was blind. Nothing in the manual about charging the battery. I had mine in upside down. The red light must be blinking when charging.

    same problem, had the camera for a while, haven't really used it... battery was charged/fine... went to open it/turn on...nothing. Plug in usb cable and solid red... screen shows green/chimes when plugged in..but then black. Playing with button doesn't do much sometimes I can get the red light on the back to go green...but that's about it.

    Must be something wrong with the battery/camcorder. I've had this problem myself. I've tried several different USB cables and none of them seem to charge the battery.

Make sue the text side of the battery is facing up. Not the pure black side... I was having this problem until I decided to flip the battery around and it worked just fine...

    Make sure the battery is not flipped around. The white text should be on the top looking up at you, and the pure black side should be facing down to the camera.

I spoke to an actual Bestbuy guy and he said if the USB cable is plugged in correctly it will charge the camcorder. If it is not charging there may be something wrong with the camera, battery, or USB cable itself.

I had this same problem. I was charging and charging and nothing was working. Looked it up online and my battery was in upside down. The solid black part of the battery has to be face down. It seems wrong but it works.

All batteries run out of power real quick. I can only shoot 20 pictures with a brand new set of batteries with my EX-FH20. Both alkaline and NIMH batteries die within minutes


What you need is HIGH RATING cells and so try and get NI-MH with rating over 2000mA or a higher grade along with a good rechargable unit and your cells will last longer than using low type cells.

Since they aren't OEM batteries, the only solution is to see the capacity.
Charge battery1, put it in the camcorder, see how many minutes of recording you get.
Do the same for battery2.

Assuming the batteries had the same original capacity and one has a significant number of charge cycles (say, at least 50) the one with more minutes is the newer one. After about 300 cycles, the batteries will be at approx 80% of the original capacity, so you need 50 to 100 cycles on the "old" one to have a significant difference in the energy capacity.

Hi my camera is the 81890 model. It won't turn on with the new batteries. I know I put them in correctly. It works only when attached to a pc. Please help!


You don't say what kind of batteries they are. New rechargeable batteries are supplied only partially charged. You need to charge them fully before use.

I need to buy battery and charger for dsc-w55


Hi!

Kindly have a look over here and here. You'll find plenty of sites selling just what you need - and much more! :)

By the way, the battery can be charged from within the camera, using the AC power adapter, or using an external charger, like this or that one.

Best regards,
Pelu.

Nikon coolpix s51, lost the adaptor for connection between laptop and camera. where can i get a new one? friend has a nikon coolpix as well. cant understand why his cable doesn't fit.


Nikon usually uses a standard fitting , but there are now 5 or six different "standard" USB tips (see Wikipedi article about USB if you want pictures. GE makes an adapter cable with interchnageable tips. You can also get the replacement cord thru any Nikon dealer (if they are willing to order it for you), But my personal choice is to get a digital media card reader instead and remove the card from the camera and read it thru the card reader- multi format card readers can be bought at office supply stores for under $20 and sometimes OfficeDepot puts their Aptiva brand single format card readers on sale for $5
