Camera will not power on

I have not used my camera since may. my battery and charger was misplaced. I borrowed a battery and charger from a friend with the exact same camera. i charged it until the green light stopped. Replaced the battery into the camera and the camera will not turn on. 3 months ago i had no luck powering it on grom an ac adapter, and tried the pc connector to see if with that I could get power to download my memory card. no luck. What is happening? help!

Replaced battery since it wasn't holding a charge. Has been plugged in for 24 hrs, still won't power on when unplugged from wall charger. What course of action should I attempt?

Possibly the charger itself is bad and only operating as a electrical connection/power cord for your camera. Try borrowing or buying another charger or take the camera to a local camera repair center or Best Buy, etc or contact customer service for your camera's manufacturer.
Hope this helps. Mike

I Have Misplaced My Charger And I Am Wondering If There Is Any Other Way To Charge It Like Maybe In The Computer?

Yes, you can charge the battery by connecting the camera to a powered USB port. Be aware that not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries, and you want to connect it directly, not through a hub. Alternatively you can use a USB charger that plugs into a wall outlet; such devices are available for cell phones.

Camera not charging with charger

It's unlikely that the charger burned out from being connected to the camera with no battery.

Try taking the battery out of the camera again, and carefully putting it in, again. Make sure the camera will turn on, to check that the battery is well seated.

Then connect the proper charger. If there are still no lights, try plugging the charger into a different outlet that you know is good. If it still doesn't work, it's probably bad. If you must have a camera tomorrow, start calling friends to ask if you can borrow theirs. You can get another charger later.

If you have a tech-oriented friend with a voltmeter, they can help you more...

I dont know how to charge my camera everyone says since there are batteries you dont charge it but it keeps saying low battery

There are two ways you can charge the battery in the ViviCam 8025. One way is to use the supplied USB cord to connect the camera to a powered USB port in a computer or a USB power device that plugs into a wall outlet or a car cigarette lighter. The other way is to remove the battery from the camera and put it into the supplied battery charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet.

It's all on page 7 of the manual. If you've misplaced your manual, you can download it at

Why i charge the baterry(GP2700) whole night when i snap the picture only 2 picture can use.many times already not only gp rechargeable baterry but (panasonic 2700) also.can someone solve my problem

If you have a friend who uses the same battery try one of yours in their camera to see if it works properly. Alternatively, try the opposite and borrow a known good battery from a friend and try it in your camera.

You either have a major problem in your camera, a coincidence of two dead batteries or a broken charger. Make sure all you connections are clean. Just a simple piece of printer paper rubbed over the battery contacts is enough to clean them. Ensure the charger connections are clean and even the connections in the camera. Check the lights on your charger. Is there any indication the battery is flat to start with and any indication of when it's charged? Usually a red light means the battery is charging and that light going out or turning green means it's charged. The battery shouldn't have to be on all night. Usually it should take maybe an hour or 2.

Finally, how long have you had your batteries and are they Li Ion or NIMH. Nicads are no good for digital cameras. They can develop memory problems. So if they are Li-ion or Nimh ensure you are using the correct type charger for those batteries

J100 Battery Does Not Work

your battery is a NP45 Li ion ... even if it seems to charge ok it still could be bad ... if you can substitute another battery to make sure ... borrow one from a friend or take it to the place you purchased it and see if they will just try one of their batteries .. or you can see if it will work while its plugged into the charger ... if it does then its likely the battery needs replacing ..
