Question about Cameras
I just bought a cell phone, prepaid. Verizon LG Optimus. It WILL NOT HOLD A CHARGE. I called Verizon, they told me to call LG, the maker of the phone. I explained to them both, that MY CELL WILL NOT HOLD A CHARGE. That as soon as I unplug the charger, the battery starts going.......The maker, LG told me I have to take it back to the store I bought it at. They will NOT TAKE IT BACK. PLEASE, HELP!!!!!!!!!!! TY
Surely you have a right to a refund or exchange if it is faulty. Check with your local Trading Standards or Consumer Protection. Tell the shop you are doing this, they might change their ideas.

Could be battery or charger. 1. Buy new battery. Still in trouble? 2. Get new charger Its good to have two batteries

I have the same problem. Worked for 3 years and now the battery charges to green but goes dead immediately. I've changed batteries. Its the camera not the batteries. Works fine plugged in. Obviously the cameras are not charging the batteries. Canon must know but I cannot find a fix and warranty is over. I guess buying the expensive camera of the day isnt always assuring you of quality.

SOURCE: not able to charge battery
This happened to me also. In the manual it says the flashing light means that the battery/charger needs to be cleaned, or if that doesn't work, it is dead. My husband called customer service and they actually sent us a new battery which we recieved within a few days. The number is 1 800 706 2534.

You said the new battery worked but wont charge in the phone. You had water damage to the phone before getting the new battery correct?
First remove any Mini S/D card in the phone, power it off and remove the battery. ( only do this if its out of warranty and nothing else works. ) Your need to take the phone apart and get some alcohol wipes and wipe down the circuit board and connectors and anything that may have had water on it, if you see any crude, try to rub it off, there may be water and crude built up on contacts from the water damage that may be shorting the phone. Also check the battery contacts for greas or crud on the contacts. Once you have wiped down everything the alcohole should evaporate and take any moisture with it. Leave it out for a day dis assembled so it can air dry completely.
Put phone back together and hook up the charger and see if it charges. wait to put the memory card back in as in case you screwed anything up, you dont want it to take out your memory card with it.
I have performed this task with many of my friends cell phone that have gone through washing machines or got moisture in it because they take there phones into a steamy shower and moisture ends up shorting it out.
If nothing else works and you want to try it, go for it.
remember theres 6 screws in back and 4 around the mainscreen that are covered with triangular sticky covers, then use a thin knife or something to pry from one of the corners, one it gets started you just have to pop it apart with your fingers. Everything snaps back together easily.
Be carefull on the side with the screens, you dont wanto to pop apart the front screen from the mainscreen as its a pain to keep together when putting it back, also dont get any dust or fingerprints on the screen as they will drive you nuts if you put it all back together and theres a greasy fingerprint under the plastic that protects the screen.
