Battery only works when plugged in

I've tried buying a new battery but this didn't work. I have a feeling that I charged the camera with the wrong charger. Have I killed it?

Camera won't charge


sometimes the charger can become loose in either the camera or the plug so try buying a new plug and if it still doesn't work then it is a problem with the camera and you will have to ask the people you bought it from

Packard bell netbook nav50 battery stopped charging properly. bought a new charger and battery and it still wont charge it up.


LOL, I didn't know Packard Bell was still making computers. I would think they sold you a bad battery. I've purchased new batteries before that would not charge.

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.

I have just bought a Nikon D70 body off Ebay (therefore didn't get a userguide) I am trying to charge up my battery which appears to work fine (the light shows up on the charger). When I put the battery in...


This is most likely to be a battery problem. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.

The best way to check is to buy a new battery, then try to charge it. If it charges and the camera works, problem solved.

If it doesn't charge, then you will need a new charger. The battery will not be wasted though, as it is always handy to have a spare.

I have a Olympus FE 4000. I purchased it this past year and it worked fine for a while but all of a sudden my camera shut down. I though the battery simply needed charging so i charged it. when i put it...


Yes, it's possible. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.

The best way to proceed is to buy a new battery, then try to charge it. If it charges and the camera works, problem solved.

If it doesn't charge, then you will need a new charger. The battery will not be wasted though, as it is always handy to have a spare.

If having bought both new battery and new charger you camera still won't work, then you will have to look into your warranty or return it to the shop- however that works in your country.

It is possible to check the voltage of the battery with a meter (you can buy a general purpose multi-meter cheaply) but this takes a modicum of skill and interpretation. Even a run down battery may show some voltage on a meter, as it doesn't draw much current.

Battery Charging light doesn't flash and battery doesn't charge


I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.

Camera dead, lithium battery uncharged for six months

If your sd400 is like mine, both batteries were dead within 18 months with very minimal use. Try a new one (battery).
