    Same problem Kyocera wont charge. I replaced the battery, but it wasn't Kyocera brand battery. It wouldn't take the charge either. Camera will come on if it is plugged in. Light doesn't come on to show charging. Is it the camera? The Battery? or the Charger?

    I believe thet that contact on the battery are not connecting w/ the contact within the camera. with the battery cover open, apply some pressure to the back of the batter--the battery will charge. The minute you release the pressure, the trouble returns. I called the repair center listed on the Kyocera website and they wanted $165 to repair the problem. I only paid $190 for the camera. Furthermore the repair center was really rude, and would not confirm whether I would get a refund if the problem could not be fixed.

I have the same battery charging problem to my SL400, after I bought the new battery and tried, the situation was the same, then I suspect the battery contacts becuase the camera can work fine with the charger plug in. After I press the battery end with some pressure, the charging light returns, then I checked the contact inside the camera, I found no dirty on contacts but they all flat, it means the battery contacts are losen contact with the camera charging contact. After I carefully tilt each contact upwards a bit (about 2 mm) then let the contact returns to normal, it works. but I don't know how long I need this repeat job and has to be careful not too break the contact, I think the contact tension is getting old.

My camera won't turn on? Its been awhile!

Try to fully charge the battery, preferably in an exterior charging unit. If the battery doesn't take a charge properly ( depletes quickly) it can stop a camera from starting.

If you already tried that here is a link to some YouTube repair tips:

Where to buy a new CCD for Kyocera SL400R? What is the part number of this blessed CCD ?

You could try Kyocera, but I don't think they still have 10 year old CCD's in stock. And if they have, it could be more expensive then a brand new DSLR. And even if you have a CCD, who will replace it and what reassurance do you have nothing else is defect in the camera.
After 10 years perhaps you should try to accept the camera is beyond repair and new camera's now perform better and faster, for less money.

try a different battery or use an external charger.... the battery could be faulty, or the camera charge function could be faulty.... a different battery will help you decide where the problem is.

Lens won't close and On/Off button doesn't work

Even though the battery appears to be charging it may be shot. Some batteries if they run down too far can not be recharged. You need to try a new battery in the camera.

Batteries drain very quickly

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I think, Charger is out of order and battery used all its charge, now charger is not functioning, so battery is not being charged. I mean no power from either side to camera.
Try to use another charger to charge battery.

Battery life

I bought a few SL400R.. yes I think this is the best camera ever. The battery that came with the cameras always would last very short time, especially in cold weather. But when I ordered new ones online, these would last very long. The specs of the new batteries are the same as the original ones. Go figure. After that I ordered external charger too, so I dont need to use the camera's built-in charger. Works very well.

Image on camera freezes

This look like an connection problem. You could try squeezing the casing here and there to see in the connector[s] resets- but failing that it is a repair shop job
