    Any other advice?  My battery did not come with a cord.  Thanks.

  • Anonymous Dec 06, 2007

    I did all that has been recommended. On the screen it shows a camera and battery saying communicating. After a couple seconds red arrows come up pointing to the camera icon and the battery icon with a yellow box with a black x in it and above it says communicating error....?
    Help please... this camera has really been more trouble than it is worth, unfortunately I can not afford to replace it, it is less than a year old.

If your extended battery came with small cord the cord needs to be plugged into the battery and the camera DC outlet).  My Everio was doing the same thing and I did the above and it works.

Cobra cxt195 won't charge

There is nothing wrong with your battery or your radio. you bought it a walmart at the lowest price available. this means you get what you pay for i.e. no frills the indicator flashing means it is connected to a power source and is charging / Maintaining the battery. it will only come on again when the battery is below 1/8th of the battery life and flash to let you know it needs to be charged again. there is no battery level indicator. these will work just fine but dont expect the 1-16 mile range they advertize unless you have full charge alkaline batteries and a direct line of sight to the one you are talking to.
