The DS-5080 does not charge the battery via USB. You need the original AC adapter (or equivalent).

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.

My nikon coolpix S220 wont charge. I had to buy another USB connector because my son lost his and it does not seem to recognize the camera at all and will not charge


The camera does not contain any charging circuitry and will not charge the battery when connected via the USB cable. In fact connecting via USB actually drains the battery faster because the camera has to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say).

The camera comes with a separate MH-63 charger. Take the battery out of the camera, put it into the charger, and plug the charger into a wall outlet. Once the battery is charged, you can put it into the camera and try connecting it to the computer.

Better yet, don't connect it to the computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive. Or you can use Nikon Transfer or any other photo cataloging program.

Hi My digital camera the Nikon coolpix s3000 kept flashing batter exhausted but it wont charge by the computer. How do i fix or charge my camera?


Not all computer USB ports put out enough current to charge batteries, especially if you're going through a hub. Try a different USB port if one is available. Otherwise, plug the supplied AC charger into a wall outlet and use that.

I connected my d40 to the computer via USB and left it on. now it is not switching on. battery was at 2 bars.


Hi,

have you tried recharging/replacing the battery?

Remove the battery & completely disconnect the camera from any cables. Now charge/replace the battery & try switching it on again. If it still fails to turn on & you have fully charged the battery then you should take it to a Camera shop for them to test. Alternatively, purchase a new battery to use in the camera.

Hope this helps
