phones charge the battery in the camera like a phone, but many do not.
This camera has a USB connection, which is meant to be used to transfer photos from the
camera to a computer. If your (now lost) charger was plugged into the
camera to charge it, and it plugged into the USB connector, then you can
charge the camera with any lead that will fit the USB connector, as
this will have a standard voltage. You can even charge it from the
computer, without buying a separate charger.
However, if your
charger charged the batteries outside the phone, by removing them from
the phone and placing them in the charger, then it is very unlikely that
they will charge in the phone, whatever you connect to it. I have a
camera just like this, that requires an external charger.
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)
YOU PEOPLE IT IS JUST THE BATTERY THAT IS IN IT!.. BECAUSE THAT BATTERY IS NOT ONLY FOR AFTER IT IS CHARGED IT ALSO WORKS TO SHOW THE DISPLAY SCREEN! BECAUSE IF YOU TAKE OUT THE BATTERY THE LIGHT STAYS ON WHILE ITS PLUGGED INTO THE COMPUTER! MY BF IS HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM TRY BUYING A NEW BATTERY!! ITS THE SOLUTION! the battery is caput!
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!
