I took mine apart, tested the charging capacitor, failed test, (i aint no tech guy but) the capacitor is the "battery" that ultimately energizes the spark to flash the bulb...its cost is about zero....but like most things, gettin it done would cost $100 or more..and there is no tech stuff like that in Florida...duh...I beez buying a new something...probably HTC 6800, VZ gets me where I need to go...for the interim

Mine does the same thing...Charging Flash!  I called HP's Customer service, and after 20 minutes of a woman, who could barely speak English, asking me for all my personal information, she told me there would be a charge of $34.99 just to get over the phone tech support!
I am told that we need New cameras, and trust me I will never by anything HP again!

NC10 battery not charging. The charging light flashes as normal but battery wont charge, tried another battery with same result.

Allow 1hour to charge it, if did not charge check the input & output of the charger if its properly insert, if not again off your notebook & charge it, always check if it is charging,
Note: Charging test try on, off, & unuse it allow to full charge the battery before using..avoid low bat your battery when using.

Any time I try to turn my camera on it always tells me to "change the batteries" even when the batteries are brand new.

Have you tried charging the brand new batteries? Often batteries are shipped with little or no charge in them, and need a full charge before use.

My sony ericsson w995 won't start,ive tried charging it...but all that happens is that the red light on the back flashes...ive tried everything,please help!

Very simple.Just follow this steps:
1. Connect the charger.
2. While the charger connected, open the back cover and close the cover again. Your phone can be switched on now. This is because this phone got sensor that ensure the back cover always closed while the phone operate.
3. If the above steps not working, try remove the battery while the phone is connected with charger.

Battery wont charge

This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).

So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!

Camera Wont turn on and blue light flashes

The possible answer is that batteries are past thier best now and even a 'full' charge is not delivering enough power. treat your self to new batteries.
