    I believe that the AC adaptor may be faulty.   Check and if your AC adaptor is a VAR-G9 (look on the bottom of the AC adaptor).  Mine failed after only two days.  These units SHOULD NOT FAIL.

    You can get a equivalent replacment at Radio Shack, or other electronics supplier.  The Radio Shack unit that will replace the VAR-G9, is the P/N 273-1696 $32.00 US.  This unit has a switch that must be set to +5V.  Also there are assorted tips, and the +/- is IMPORTANT.  Make sure the + side of the adaptor is aligned with "TIP" as the TIP of the adaptor is positive on the VAR-G9.

    Plugging this in backwards will very likely damage your camera.

It is possible that the batteries you are using would work in another device, but not have enough amperage to keep your camera happy.

Buy some new rechargables- lithium ion (li-on), if you can afford them, or Nickel Metal Hydride- (Ni-MH).

Again, higher the amperage (measured in milli-amp hours- mAh- the better)

Good luck!

Place a small piece of paper on top of the battery and then slide the door closed on top of it. My replacement battery does not fit tightly enough to make contact without it.

When i plug my charger into the camera, it stays red for 1 minute, and then continuesly flashes orange, and doesnt charge, anyway i can fix this?

The problem appears to be in the rechargeable battery itself, I would replace the battery but not until the old one is checked first at the camera store.

Camera doesn't seem to accept a charge Camera

Yes. You need a new battery. I would assume the same. Have the battery checked or try charging it in the battery charging cradle overnight.

Normally when i charge my cameras battery a red light will turn on to let me know its charging and will stay on until it is fully charged but whn i went to charge my battery yesterday the red light began...

Charge your battery with an external power supply or a car battery charger for like 10 seconds (1 ampere will do the trick) by connecting the + and the - of the battery to the + and - of the power supply.
Now insert the battery in your normal charger. ìf it will still not charge do it again for 10 seconds.

My camera pentax optio wp wont turn on. though is

If possible, check the charger output or the charge status of the batteries with a voltmeter. That will narrow the field for you. If the charger and batteries seem OK, your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Optio a10 charger

if you don't see a light on the charger lite up its the charger, or the internal batteries are no longer excepting the charger. my first guess is the charger itself.

Battery won't charge...

You can take you battery to a place called batteries plus they can check out to see if it is you battery if the battery is good than you have a bad charger. you can get one cheap off of ebay. They are 45.00 plus at batteries plus lots cheaper off ebay and some time you can get a charger and battery combo for half the cost of the charger from them. hope this helps.
