    We got our camera for christmas and it has lasted just over a month (and the warranty) It won't come on, it won't charge. it did come on for a few minutes, I was able to record a video and now can't get it to come on again. The camera was cold when it worked so I just put the battery into the frig to see if it will work again......WON'T BE BUYING ANOTHER ONE...THIS HAS TO BE SENT TO THE STATES AND WHO KNOWS WHEN AND IF I WILL EVER SEE IT AGAIN!!!

    Same with me! My battery died, so when I tried to plug it in to be charged it just sat there and when i thought it was done "charging", It wouldn't come on!

Be sure yo0u are not cahrging it through your usb this dosent not work....yo must charge through power plug provided in the box

Try unplugging from the power source, open the screen and turn it on. Then close again and plug in; the red light should start to blink and it should start charging.

AC charger for Jazz DV 179


I did an extensive on line search to no avail found several cameras and chargers for other Jazz cameras...so my suggestion is a universal charger which you can get at Wal-mart or target.....also there are lithium battery chargers that can be purchased just like the ones in the camera...and at the same stores.



Hope this helps....good luck and thanks for rating my effort....the Fang.

You will need a 5V, 1 amp charger with a mini (not micro USB connector. Search Amazon. They sell the hybride Jazz 178 and accessories. When you plug it in it will charge automatically and the record button with flash red when it's charging.

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)

WON"T WORK


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)

Well.. I have to plug in the charger that came with the dv-179. If I use my Phone (motorola usb) charger, or a USB cable (into the computer or a hub), all it does is light up the back red light (and not the front 'self timer' led) and does not charge the camera. So remember, if the back led lights up, you've got the wrong charger!

The Charger has a standard two pronged plug to go into the wall. The other end goes into the camera at the back bottom. You will see the female received for the male plug.
