My Camera won't turn on and I have had the battery on the charger for a really long time and it usually takes about an hour. When I put the battery in the charger it just blinks red.

How do you get the camera to charge? I put in new batteries and it still says battery low and shuts off. I have plugged it into the computer and it still won't charge. It won't even turn on.


Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.

Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.

If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or

Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.

I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.

My battery for canon camera 550d flashes orange when charging, its been 4 hours now and it hasnt turned green yet.. I am charging it first time.. is this normal


Okay what happens sometimes is the charger gets into a feed back loop. What to do is remove the battery unplug the charger wait a few seconds (Maybe 20/30) plug the charger back into the outlet and then put the battery back in the charger. It should start to charge again and a few minutes later go to the blinking for full charge green.

It'll happen the other way as well meaning if the battery gets a memory (they say they don't but they do) you need to unplug the battery let is sit till it's cool and put it back on charge again. I've had this problem many times and have put it on charge and back off several times with in 15 minutes before it started to charge as it should.

Also these batteries do have a life span and if it's a three year old battery with many charges it could be failing meaning it just won't take a full charge.

When turn on or power is push to on there is a message turn off and turn on again


dear sir,


the first suspect is your battery,which is running in low battery....kindly recharge the battery for few hours with the original charger,because the charging volt varies from battery to battery of the same brand and using this universal charger is definitely going to harm ur camera very worse,kindly go for the original charger and charge the battery and then put your camera on........


if still the problem is the same ,the problem is usually caused by virus and sometimes it might be software failure also, which causes some of the menu not to function,the only solution is to flash ur cam software from the nearest samsung service centre...


thank you...take care

    Charging


    I do not know this particular camera but it is not usual to take a battery charge from the computer. Charger plug in the the household supply. Is this one different? There is usually a more comprehensive manual in PDF on the disk- have you checked that out. Finally get on to customer support, if you feel you are getting nowhere. I would like to know more about the battery charger.

    After switching on - the lens extends and retracts repeatedly


    I had the same issue and thought me Ebay camera was trash. I put the batteries back on the charger over night and it worked properly in the morning. Looked to be a low power issue, but my lens did look like it was all cocked, grinding and stalling. perhaps the camera reset itself with no batteries in it for a few hours> I was very relieved.
