Sadly this doesn't always work, especially (and perversely) when the battery is in a very low state to start with. You need a mains lead, I fear.

Not all USB ports put out enough current to charge a battery. If you're connecting through a hub, try bypassing it and connecting directly. If you have another USB port, try that.

Won't charge


The 4100 is a camera, not a battery charger. Connecting the camera to a computer's USB port is only going to drain the batteries faster, since the camera has to use juice to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

If you're using an EN-MH1 rechargeable battery pack, you must charge it using a separate MH-71 battery charger. If you're using rechargeable AA batteries, you must charge them using an appropriate battery charger.

Hi, I'd suggest using a wall charger as they're able to provide more power to charge then a computers USB port. Often with camera's the USB port doesn't supply enough power so the camera doesn't charge at all.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

Hey Sophia,

Have you checked the battery, as the problem seems to be with battery

First of all checked if the battery is inserted properly

Take it off and re-insert it... make sure the +ve and -ve are set properly

If it still does not work...you got to replace the battery

Thanks

I am trying to charge the camera battery through my pc


The camera does not charge the battery through the USB port. Connecting the camera to a computer drains the battery faster, as the camera has to use juice to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). Please use the supplied battery charger or a replacement.
