The battery is removable and the camera came with a charger that you connect the battery to and plug into a household socket.

Connection error


In order of likelihood:

1. Make sure your camera is charged (battery indicator good). Some cams can't transfer pics if battery is low.

2. Try a different USB port. Some cameras need a powered port. USB ports on the REAR of a PC usually provide more power than ones on the front, due to the way they are wired to the motherboard inside.

3. You may need to UNinstall the camera software and reboot your computer. Try plugging in your camera then; I rarely install the crappy software that comes with a camera (Windows should recognize most cameras right away). However, if all above fails, visit the camera manufacturer website for the latest software updates or assistance. I think it is:

4. Your USB cable may be defective; borrow one from a friend (make sure the ends are exactly the same), or try BigLots or BestBuy.

My cyber shot was submerged when the boat I was in capsized. When I got home I put it in a bowl with dry rice. It won't turn on. Is it dead?


Very likely dead.
Did you take out the battery and memory card before drying. Also it should dry for a week.
If you are lucky its just the battery thats dead. So try to borrow a battery from a friend who has the same camera.

When i push the power button on my camera the lens just moves inward and outward and then shuts off and when i plug my battery in to charge it doesnt charge


Sounds like its time to replace the battery to me, the only other way to find out for free is to borrow a battery from a willing friendly soul and trying that out first.

My FE-280 is living-dead


I'm working on the premise that SMTH stands for something.

If its had water in it, and the battery wasn't removed immediatley and not replaced until the camera was thoroughly dried out, then its probably dead. Water and the electrical charge from the battery will short out the delicate circuits in the camera.

Its probably too late now, but you could remove the battery and put it in a warm dry place (airing cupboard) for a couple of days, then try it again.

Why i charge the baterry(GP2700) whole night when i snap the picture only 2 picture can use.many times already not only gp rechargeable baterry but (panasonic 2700) also.can someone solve my problem


If you have a friend who uses the same battery try one of yours in their camera to see if it works properly. Alternatively, try the opposite and borrow a known good battery from a friend and try it in your camera.

You either have a major problem in your camera, a coincidence of two dead batteries or a broken charger. Make sure all you connections are clean. Just a simple piece of printer paper rubbed over the battery contacts is enough to clean them. Ensure the charger connections are clean and even the connections in the camera. Check the lights on your charger. Is there any indication the battery is flat to start with and any indication of when it's charged? Usually a red light means the battery is charging and that light going out or turning green means it's charged. The battery shouldn't have to be on all night. Usually it should take maybe an hour or 2.

Finally, how long have you had your batteries and are they Li Ion or NIMH. Nicads are no good for digital cameras. They can develop memory problems. So if they are Li-ion or Nimh ensure you are using the correct type charger for those batteries

I have the ex-s600 camera and am very happy with the camera but I just tried to recharge it and it never charges. The red light blinks continuously and never turns green.


Remove the battery and make sure the contacts are clean. It might even be sufficient (for a while) to just remove the battery and put it back in. If that works, you should clean the contacts.

The next step is to try another battery. If you can borrow one from a friend with the same model, do so. If that charges, your battery is bad. If it doesn't charge, ask your friend to try charging your battery in the other camera. If it charges, then try borrowing the AC adapter. That will help isolate the problem without spending money. If it goes this far, post a response on your results.

Hi im trying to put pics from my camera to my comp all i get on the camera is busy i used it last week ..i got a virus my virus cleaner finally killed the virus but now i cant upload from my camera to the...


The best thing to transfer pics from camera to computer is not to transfer directly. Take out the memory card and load the pic through card reader. This is even faster and safer for your camera getting the virus. perhaps your camera is now virus infection but I just hope it's not. try it, that's what am doing.
