I ran into a similar problem. After taking my T-100 out of the box, I left it on charge overnight. The specs on this camcorder state it takes 4 hours to fully charge, so it should have been sufficient, however, when I turned the camera on, my battery level on showed two out of three power bars. I checked at the SVP website ( and found there was a firmware upgrade available for the battery meter. You can find instructions and a link to the firmware file here: (

They don't do a fantastic job of explaining what the patch fixes, but I found the above referenced link titled T-100 battery firmware, and it redirected me to the page for instructions. I followed the instructions (again, just to reiterate - the instructions display as "Instruction (SD card or MMC card)" not "Battery Firmware for T-100" (like it should). After formating my SD card, downloading the file to the SD card, and holding buttons, etc., my battery level indicator shows that I have a full charge.

I've seen dozens of inquiries along the lines of charging the battery and there were no responses. I hope this resolves your problem so you can enjoy such a neat little gadget. We absolutely love ours. Best of luck.

Wont turn on

When a camera does not want to work, first thing to do is remove the battery (Batteries) and charge them. Also look if all contacts on the battery and battery compartment of the camera are clean and shiny. Try to charge batteries at least evert 3 months, when you don't use them, and always charge them one or two days before you want to use the camera.

Battery is not charging fully even after i changed my battery it charges only up to 30% when i switch it off and on once again it becomes to just 4% .I cant send messages from the mobile W705 ,I have...

Ifthe recharable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.
