    Its a little orange latch within the battery compartment that snaps the battery in place. On my camera it is broken off.
    I have already solved the problem. If you make a small coil of tin foil about 1/2 inch long 1.75 thick its enough to hold the battery down, shut the battery compartment door and wow the camera works!!!!

The latch is required to hold the batteries firmly in place. Also, on the battery latch, you have a piece of metal which connects the positive side of one battery to the negative side of the other battery. So if you can place a piece of metal or use a wire to connect the two batteries, and then hold the batteries in place somehow, your camera will work.

Kodak easyshare won't work unless plugged into charger


Hello Pam, You have either a faulty contact for the battery or your battery is suffering from age. After time these camera batteries lose their capacity. Try a new fully charged battery.

Samsung sl605 wont turn on


A charging battery's light is red. If it turns green then it means it is fully charged. Since you had stored your battery for a while, try to charge it by using a battery charger to kickstart it. It should work. Whatever transpires let me know. thanks and rate this answer.

How do I charge my Olympus camera? I've gone over the instructions a dozen times, and I just can't get it to work. Please help....


You must use the F-2AC battery charger along with the provided USB cable to charge the battery in the camera. Make sure the cable is inserted fully into the charger and the camera, it can take some force.
To charge the battery outside the camera use the LI-41C battery charger.

Is the red light on the charger suppose to stay on or blinking for the battery to charge?


It is supposed to stay on. If it is blinking then your battery has gone completely dead. You can force the charger to charge the battery by applying a voltage (AA battery w/ wires worked for me) across the charging terminals while inserting the battery. You'll have to take the charger apart for this.

My LI42 battery won't charge for my Olympus 790 SW. The charging light comes on, then flashes, then turns off within about a minute. The battery does not charge at all during this time. My manual does not...


Problem is most likely the battery. Try getting a new battery of the same specifications and see. That is the cheaper option. If that still does not work, then it could be the charger.

SD1000 _ Wont turn on and I'm on vacation!! WHY!!!


Withe the PowerShot Digital Elph cameras there is unfortunately very little that you can do for a power problem besides determining that either the rechargeable Lithium ion battery or the battery charger itself is not the problem.

Of course a good battery will work fine in another similar camera. Usually the charger works OK if the lighting sequence on the charger goes from Red to Green on a low battery within a 2 hour period of time (it should also alternate between red and green when the battery is approximately 90% charged).

If the battery and the charger are in good working order then the camera likely has experienced an electrical communications error within the power circuitry which, more often than not, is due to some sort of impact damage. Often users don't realize that their cameras have experienced impact damage but these cameras are unfortunately very fragile. A fall of as little as two feet can do sufficient damage to require service.

Given the scant amount of surface area that the contact plates actually have with the camera body, cleaning these areas will rarely effect a solution and resets cannot be performed on cameras with no power, so the result, unfortunately, is that the cameras will typically have to be serviced.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB

Camera does not turn on.


I had a similar problem and it was a result of the battery not charging correctly. I bought the travel battery charger and an additional battery from amazon to see if maybe the battery was just old or just not charging. I figured out that the internal camera charging mechanism just wasn't working b/c the battery charged fine with the travel charger. I like the travel charger better and with two batteries I can charge one while the other is in use. I haven't had a problem since. When you buy the new battery you still have to charge it before it's first use. I hope this works for you as it did for me.

Camera will not charge the battery


Well. Ive got the same problem only ive gone thru 3 batteries trying to figure out what the problem is. When i plug it in to charge the light turns red , then within 5 sec's turns green. It stays green but never charges the battery. After 24 hours, its still a dead battery. Im just assuming since its 5 years old that the internal charger is shot. Looking for a new camera at this time.
