Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE E50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I can not get the camera to take a charge

For some time now the camera has been hard to get it to begin charging. I have had to fiddle with the adapter and put pressure on it in different directions until finally the green light begins to flash. I then would carefully put the camera down and hope that it would continue to charge. Now, this morning when I need it the most, it will not charge at all no matter how I play with the adapter. If I knew that a new battery or adapter would do the trick I would be happy to purchase them. I need to confirm that first. Im worried that it might be a problem in the camera charge port itself. Thank you in advance.

Re: I can not get the camera to take a charge

It could be any or all of them Battery failure - buy new battery Charger- buy new charger Looks like you are in for a tough time finding out. Buy a new buttery first and take it from there. If it is going to be the camera- then don't bother to look for repairs - the cost will be as much as buying the next camera - even assuming parts are available

Kodak Z980 battery wont last.

I always buy an extra battery or two for my cameras. Sometimes if batteries are over charged [left in the charger for days] or charged too often [charge again after just a few minutes of use each time] they won't hold a charge. Or it could have been a bad battery to begin with. Get a new one and be happier for just a few dollars. Hope that helps, it's what I do.

Why is my nikon coolpix L20 battery exhausted even with new batteries

If you are using rechargeable batteries, It could be that your camera's battery charger circuit is defective. If your camera is out of warranty, the cheap solution would be to buy an external charger. Another possibility is that a short circuit or defective electronic component is drawing excessive current and draining your batteries. If that is the case, you will need to have your camera repaired. Nikon USA Repair Depot's number is 1-800-645-6687 9AM-8PM EST, Monday to Friday. They will tell you how to return your camera for repair and they will give you a free estimate if it is out of warranty.

If nothing is wrong with the camera, the battery is placed correctly, the battery cover is closed correctly then only one thing can be wrong. Even when you don't believe it is possible, the battery can be flat again.
So to make sure everything is as you think. Charge the battery again, and look if the charger acts as usually. The charging lamp turns orange and charging begins. When the charging is finished, the lamp turns green. Last time you charged, it could have taken 4 hours, before the lamp went green. If the battery is recently charged, it only will take a fraction of that time. If it still takes a long time, your battery was empty. It is recommended, to charge not longer than for 24 hours. After charging, please wait till the battery is cooled down. Then insert it again and close the battery cover. Check the cover closes correctly. And now switch on again.
If you charged with an USB cambs connected to the camera. Don't forget to remove the cable, because the camera won't start as long as an USB cable is connected.

My camera has only been used a few times but the battery is completely flat, i have lost the manual and am not sure how to charge it. I have tried plugging it into the computer but dont know what else to...

You may download a copy of the manual here. The battery charging instructions begin on page 14. If it's not charging from your computer's USB port, make sure you're not going through a hub but are connected directly.

Can the BC-NH01 battery charger also charge AAA

In reality, yes. The AAA batteries are to short for the charger, so some fiddling is required. I'd recommend you buy a suitable multicharger instead.

The power button of my Praktica Luxmedia 7303

I'm sorry. It was a false alarm. In fact the lead to the battery charger was faulty and the battery was not properly charged. By fiddling with it, we managed to recharge the battery fully and get the camera working.

I have the Fuji FinePix Z1, the battery is not staying charged for a long period of time, always having to charge it, is it time for a new battery??

Generally Lithium-Ion camera batteries will last around 1-2 years. The batteries have a "memory", meaning that after a certain number of charges they begin to hold less of a charge. If your camera is still under the manufacturers warranty you can contact your manufacturer for assistance, otherwise most places you can buy digital cameras carry replacement batteries, but it is definitely time for a new one.

Won't turn on

possible problems: 1) battery charger is bad and isn't actually charging the battery. Test by charging on another charger if possible. 2) batteries are bad and are not actually recharging. test by using other batteries if possible. 3) batteries are not making contact properly inside the camera. Test by cleaning connections of the batteries and the camera. See if orienting the camera one way or another will allow it to turn on. Generally fiddle with it. 4) other, unknown, internal camera problem. Contact Panasonic service.
