The Canon NB-5L is rated at 3.7volts. I don't know how you plugged the car charger into the camera, but if you got the 12volts from your charger on your camera ... you fried it. To check the battery, put a voltmeter (multimeter) across 2 terminals of the battery, it should read between 3.5volts to 4.0volts.

How do I charge the camera I have 2 sets of wires that came with the camera ( I have been using batteries but they no longer work to hold a charge I put new ones in and within a minute it dies)


Digital Cameras use regular batteries very (very) fast. You cannot charge the batteries/camera with either of the cords that came with your specific camera. You will need to purchase "long life" rechargeable batteries ALONG WITH a battery charger that plugs into the wall and you put the batteries into the charger in order to recharge the batteries themselves.

The light on the end of the dock stays red. Battery when recharged turns green. When placed back on the dock, then the light goes back to red.


Turn your camera on and look at the battery life after you had it charging for a while. your rechargable batteries may be bad or getting bad. Try trading out the rechargeable batteries or try plugging in your charger on a different outlet at home

Ok all mine had the same problem however problem has been solved! The power cord that plugs into the charger is a common cord you may have laying around the house. I switched the power cord to my charger and the dreaded blinking stopped! Its just a bad power cord to the charging unit! Hope this helps!

Have you recharged the battery many times since you owned it? Did you leave it alone for an extended time and it completely discharged and died? Rechargeable batteries sometimes only last 3 years.

Kodak C340 I installed new batteries and docked it over night and the camera still dose not turn on


with new batterys you may find if quicker to charge them in a battery charger and not in the camera,,,the camera charger is for "topping up" the batterys realy not fully recharging them its so you can leave the camera on its docking port and it will have fully charged batterys in it when you wont to use it,, to fully charge a new set of batterys it could take days,,,,so overnight is to short a charge to recharge them,,,leave the camera on its docking station for a fuw days at least, or use a home charger for your type of battery ie:AAA or AA, both take 16 hours to recharg fully

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.

Camera does not respond when turned on or when plugged in to recharge.


I followed the advice of my Fixya adviser--remove the battery for 3 minutes then plug the USB cable into a different port on my computer and plus in the camera. I did that and turned the camera on as advised but the green light still did not blink. The adviser did not respond when I asked what to do next so I disconnected the camera from the computer and plugged it into the charger. This time the first blue light started blinking (nothing happened when I tried it before following the Fixya advice). I left the camera to charge all night and eventually, after about 12 hours, it did.
Seems O.K. now.
