How do I get this thing working? What do I need. Much help needed. Thanks

SOURCE: lost power charger will a

Some phones charge the battery in the camera like a phone, but many do not. The USB connection is meant to be used to transfer photos from the camera to a computer. If your (now lost) charger was plugged into the camera to charge it, and it plugged into the USB connector, then you can charge the camera with any lead that will fit the USB connector, as this will have a standard voltage. You can even charge it from the computer, without buying a separate charger.

However, if your charger charged the batteries outside the phone, by removing them from the phone and placing them in the charger, then it is very unlikely that they will charge in the phone, whatever you connect to it. I have a camera just like this, that requires an external charger.

Useing a flash off a sony a300


Obviously, you'd need a separate flash unit, since you can't take the built-in flash off the camera. Just as obviously, you'd need a way to trigger that flash.

Some flash units have a remote sensor that will respond to the camera's flash. The a300 has a wireless mode for triggering such flashes. There are remote flash systems that include a radio transmitter that fits onto the camera's hot shoe and a receiver that the flash mounts onto. Some flash units have a jack so you can use a cord to connect the flash to the camera.

The degree of automation depends on the system. The a300's wireless mode works best with Sony's own flash units. The separate wireless and cord methods will work with just about any flash, though you'll probably have to set the exposure and flash output yourself.

We have lost the cord to download pictures off of our Fuji Fine Pix S5000 camera - where can we purchase this cord?


Go to a computer store or Radio Shack store and get a USB to camera cord. Take the camera with you to make sure the USB carmera jack fits your camera. These are pretty common cables. The cable should cost less than $6.00.

My vivcam 8025 won't charge and never has. I have all the cords and the walll ac adapter and still nothing, It worked fine before the battery wounldn't charge. I have tried to find an answer to this for a...


The first thing to determine here is if the ac adapter is working. Measure the output with a voltmeter- it's usually around 3v. Next, plug it into the camera and measure the internal battery contacts to see if they're getting voltage. If all is good, then it could be a matter of slightly oxidized battery terminals (on the battery itself, or inside the camera). Clean them with a qtip and alcohol, or pencil eraser, and see if that fixes it. The next suspicious thing would be a bad battery (they do go bad, and when a cell internally shorts, the battery will not charge). Going back to the step where you measure the internal battery contacts for voltage, if you have no voltage reading on the contacts, this could mean a bad jack on the camera, in which case you will have to disassemble the camera to fix or replace the jack. Since the jack is directly wired to the battery terminals inside the camera, this is the most likely defect and suspicious component, although it could be a poor solder connection that has gone south (rare, but happens). If you don't have a voltmeter, you might try to take the camera in to Best Buy or Radio Shack, and see if they will help you measure things. Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a Canon SD750 Elph, I can't connect the cord to the camera to download the pictures to my computer. Where is the connector??


As you're looking at the back of the camera, there is a small door along the upper right outside edge, which opens to reveal the digital connector jack and an audio/video jack. It is just above the metal loop where you attach the wrist strap.

Screen goes black when a/v cord connected


I had a bad cable on mine. Once you plug the cord in the camera controls will appear on the screen. If you get a hold of Sony they can get you a new one.

You might be able to find a new one at a computer store depending on what connection goes to the back of you camera to get it to work (like a mini jack).
