Went to plug my camera in to charge it up as going away and want it for my trip, however on plugging it in, i got a red then orange then green light, then the led went blank. I took this to mean it wasn't charging. Can you offer any advice?
I have the same camera with the same problem, i usually have to take the memory card out and the battery, put the battery back in but leave the memory out, it usually starts to charge after that small ritual. good luck

sometimes the charger can become loose in either the camera or the plug so try buying a new plug and if it still doesn't work then it is a problem with the camera and you will have to ask the people you bought it from
Just got one of these cameras from a charity shop and after only a short use same problem.
Try connecting camera to PC as an external drive and delete (all) files..... This, too, may not work, in which case reformat the whole drive representing the camera - quick format will probably do.
Once you take a photo the directory path: DCIM/100IMAGE will be recreated.
I'd recommend reformatting quite regularly - after each time you download the photos off the camera.
Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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. Even if you have to buy a card reader, it won't cost you any more than a new USB cord.
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, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).
I believe that the camera will not charge directly from the computer - testing this theory myself... however I went to Radio Shack tonight and they have them there for 30 bucks (a bit outragious if you as me)
sounds like a dead battery. Plug the origional charger into it and the front led (below the flash) should flash red. If the red led in the back of the camera flashes or stays lit, then you have the wrong charger plugged in. (the camera won't power up if the back red/green led is on when plugged in)
