Question about Cameras
When I first got the camera it turned on giving me two options PC or Wall adapter. I chose PC because that is the only form I had to do any kind of charge. once I plugged the camera in everything froze and now it wil not turn on, I can plug it into the wall or the PC and I get nothing. How can I reset this camera? I left the battery out over night and still nothing this morning
As soon as you connect a camera to a computer, it will stop working, because the USB connection will be used to charge the battery.
If your computer is not correct wired on the USB port, or when you are using a hub, without an external power supply, the battery will not be charged. So you end up with an empty battery and a camera that does not respond.
Try charging the battery on an external charger and remove the USB cable, before switching on the camera. Also check if the USB connector on the camera is free. Avoiding the camera to "think" there is still a USB cable connected.

I had this same problem with my Sanyo. I went on E Bay and purchased a new battery.. It was about 8 dollars and shipped from China. But it worked when I put the new battery in and charged it.

Perhaps your charger is bad. If not then the battery itself may be the problem. If it is a Lithium ion battery then it is possible that it has gone bad. Many L-ion batteries have a built in chip that determines if the battery can safely be charged. If it, (the chip) determines that it can't then it locks out the battery. You may have to buy another battery

hi It is hard to tell with your description. Any bumping or impact? At this point you have to bring near local repair shop. They might charge you around $35 to 85 depend on what they really want to charge. How ever you can check basic thing in your home. (if you have multimeter, you can check battery and charger unit are good or not, ) thanks and best regard!
