Well, that was nearly double the voltage required for the camera. Usually you cant even plug in the wrong charger.
In this case, you may have destroyed the camera's battery. To test this, you can go to an electronics store for them to test, or you can purchase a replacement battery (hang on to the receipt) and if it does not work in the camera, you may return it. Be sure to ask someone in the store if they accept opened packages, explain the situation, and be sure that is within their return policy.
If the new battery does not operate the camera properly, it is entirely possible that you overpowered the camera beyond its tolerances and it would have to be repaired or replaced by Kodak.
Either an error occurred during charging, an AC power disruption occurred during charging, the wrong AC power adapter is being used, batteries are over- discharged, batteries are defective, or no batteries are installed in the camera.
Try charging the batteries a couple of times. If that fails, try charging the batteries in an external charger. If the batteries still will not charge, purchase new batteries and try again
Kodak has 3 types of charger that can be connected to a wall socket USB AC Adapter - is especially useful when traveling, away from your computer, or just plain on-the-go. Connect your camera's USB cable to the adapter and plug it into a wall outlet to conveniently charge your camera. 5V AC Adapter - Provides in-camera charging for all KODAK EASYSHARE M and V Series Digital Cameras Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 5.0 V 3V AC Adapter - Provides direct power to your camera but it will not charge the camera battery Input: AC 100-240 V 50/60 Hz Output : DC 3.0 V
* You need to check the type of adapter your using. If your using the 5V AC adapter or USB adapter and the camera won't charge the battery contact kodak support line 1 800 235 6325 (23KODAK) for possible repair.
I am assuming that the power does not go on or it immediately turns off as it is turned on.
Try the docking station or the 3.3 AC adapter to the camera. Plug that in to live power. If you hear the lens motor (by default the lens is retracted to closed position when plugged to AC power), then the camera is operational. If not, there is power failure with the camera.
If the lens motor work, then try to turn the camera while plugged to AC power. If it turns on, then there is something wrong with the battery or with the chamber. If the camera does not turn on, then check the button board for a bad power switch.
Check the LCD closely under a bright light when you do this test. You may see a faint a flash of display that disappears. I have not figured out what causes this. This would mean that camera power supply is working but nothing is telling for the camera to stay on.
CORRECTION and RESOLUTION -- turns out it wasn't the wrong charger (the other one won't even fit), but instead must have been some other overload of charger, battery or camera. There is apparently no way to reset the camera other than through the menu (must turn camera on -- according to Casio support). Short story is that it needs to be sent in for repair. Trying to find receipt, but should be under warranty.
Yes. The power supplies and battery chargers supplied with all Powershot Digital Cameras are designed to work on input voltages from 100-240 volts (50/60 Hz). The only item that you may need is a plug adapter that allows you to plug the U.S. type power supply or battery charger into the foreign type wall outlet. Plug adapters should be easily available at a local electronics store.
