Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery charging problems

I purchased the D40x (new) and used the charger that came with it to charge the battery. I used the charged battery until I depleted it. I stuck the battery on the charger for over an hour and when I re-insert it into the camera, it shows there is no charge. I did this with two different batteries, no luck-no charge. Also I bought a new charger thinking this might be the problem but they still dont work. Any suggestions?

Camera will not charge, shows blinking orange but will not turn on... when it does, it's to a "battery exhausted" screen or the lcd display with a low battery symbol. Also doesn't show on...


It could possibly be the battery or the charger itself.Try purchasing the charger it self.Use the old battery to see if it will charge it. If it does not charge you may have to purchase a new battery.as well.

I have been use sony cycle Energy Rechargable batteries AA 2000mAh. They are properly charging. But now I'am purchased another sony cycle Energy Reechargable batteries AA 3000mAh. But they are no charging...


It's likely your charger. You probably own a "fast charger" but it's also probably designed for your lower mAh power batteries. The charger does not understand the power difference of your newer high-capacity battery, thus it is automatically stopping the charge before completion sensing something is wrong. You'll need to either purchase a newer charger, clearly stated capable of charging 3000mAh batteries. An alternative is to use an older "trickle" charger (one of those that charges at very low power slowly overnight). These don't automatically turn off when the battery reaches full charge, thus will charge your battery.

My battery will not charge. I purchased a new


The flashing on a charger usually means that the battery is defective or will not take a charge. I would take the battery back to the vendor and have them check it. A good indication is that if your old battery took even a small charge, it is not usually the charger that is the problem. It points to the new battery being faulty.

Soney cybersthot dsc-s30 charging issue


I replaced the battery. The new one keeps a charge and lets the ac adapter charge the battery. I plan on purchasing a new battery and recycling the old one.

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.
