Re: Format error

Check your battery connector or terminal & clean if necessary, check also your memory stick connectivity. It may be caused by no connectivity with the memory stick... ^_^

My vivitar x345 wont hold charge

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% and graduallythe charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The batteryshows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops offto zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptablecharge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

My battery will not charge. I purchased a new

The flashing on a charger usually means that the battery is defective or will not take a charge. I would take the battery back to the vendor and have them check it. A good indication is that if your old battery took even a small charge, it is not usually the charger that is the problem. It points to the new battery being faulty.

I am trying to charge the battery. The charger is flashing a red light and the battery won't seem to charge. Placed it in the camera just in case, and it won't turn on.

Well, with my Nikon, the light flashes to show the battery is charging. It stays on when it's charged. My battery and spare battery are 2 years old and working fine. I'd say wait till it stops flashing...hour or 2 in my case, though I never let them run down all the way.

I had the same problem. I had a 1 year warranty, so I called 1800-435-7732 and they sent me a new battery within 5 days. I just received it today and it works perfectly. Hope this helps you! =]
