Page 18 of the manual says: Only use cable and AC power adapter, delivered with your camera to charge the battery. If you use another adapter, or cable the camera battery could not charge or not work properly.
The manual, does not indicate you should be able, or you could charge the battery, when you connect it to a computer. And although on the outside a cable can look the same, it would be better you use the original cable, that came with the camera. Make sure you switch off the camera before charging and check if all contacts in the camera and on the cable are clean and not bent.

SOURCE: charging

I do not know this particular camera but it is not usual to take a battery charge from the computer. Charger plug in the the household supply. Is this one different? There is usually a more comprehensive manual in PDF on the disk- have you checked that out. Finally get on to customer support, if you feel you are getting nowhere. I would like to know more about the battery charger.

SOURCE: CAMERA WILL NOT CHARGE UP, I PLUG THE CHARGER IN

If you've recently changed the batteries, make sure that you have the right kind for your camera and that they're installed properly. That said, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helped, please take a moment to post a rating for me. A "Very Helpful" would be greatly appreciated.

I just bought the camera and am trying to charge it. I am not getting an LED light but instead a blue screen that says "MSDC" in white letters. I have checked the battery and storage disk...


Are you charging it by plugging it into a computer? The "MSDC" you see usually means "Mass Storage Device Class", which basically means the computer is using the storage on the camera as a removable drive. This would usually happen when plugging a camera into the computer via USB. There is usually an AC adapter that comes with a camera, or a separate charger for just the battery. If there was no charger that came with it, the camera is probably still charging. If the camera is on, try turning it off and plugging it in. Remember, even if it shows "MSDC", it is probably still charging. Hope this helps!

Do you leave camera on as it is charging through computer for the Kodak Easyshare M753 Camera?


Hi it dont need to be on whilst charging, some cameras will switch themselves on when you plug them into the computer, but you can still turn it off, now you need to bare in mind that unless you are using a powered usb port is one that plugs into the mains then into your computer you may have problems charging the camera enough through the computers own usb port, it may still charge so you will have to try some cameras will just power up enough to enable you to transfer pictures onto your computer.

give it a try and see how you get on, it wont matter if the camera is on or off whilst plugged into computer how ever it will charge quicker with the camera off if it will even charge at all

I have A vivicam 8025 I plugged into my pc A red light came on the camera is it now charging? it will not turn on while plugged in. If it is charging how long till its done charging?


Yes, the red light indicates that the battery is charging. The light will go out when the battery is fully charged. The time depends on how drained the battery was before charging, and also on the current coming from the computer.

Can i charge the camera other than through the usb cable ??


Hi!

USB charging is not possible. You need to have the battery charger to be able to fully charge the battery. This should come along with the camera kit.

USB charging is possible if you will buy this: http://fujifilm.co.uk/consumer/digital/digital-accessories/usb-chargers-travel-adaptors-153171/world-adaptor-plus-usb-charger

"For charging by USB, simply change the head and plug in your iPod, mobile phone, PDA or any other 5V USB powered device to keep it fully charged wherever you are."

Charging camera


Are you using the front usb ports on your computer? My computer's front usb ports were not able to charge my camera, but the rear usb ports were able to (the charging light should stay on if it's charging correctly). I'm not an expert on this stuff, so maybe there's a power output difference between your frontal and rear usb ports.

Also, on the CD there was a camera connection driver. You might try installing that and see if that makes a difference?

Charging


You charge it by plugging into the usb plug on the camera. When you purchased the camera there should have been 2 cords that came with it. A usb plug to your computer, and a usb plug to plug into an outlet. Both will charge your battery. You should be able to purchase a usb to computer cord at a Circut City or other electronics store. Just make sure you take the camera to the store with you. To make sure you get the correct cord.

Not charging


does the charging light come on. if it does the battery is charging is it plugged into a usb hub if so the camera will not charge. it has to be connect to the computers usb port directly.also some computers have a built in usb hub witch cause this to happen. try using the usb plugs in the back they are diffrent addresses. also check you cable for any damage. I thing about USB is they are touchy pains. I had to fully reload my computer twice because of a USB problem best thing to do is get a seperate charger for your battery and a memory card reader to transfer your pictures.
