Depending on your camera, the battery may be able to be charged on the camera or by using a separate battery charger. Refer to the section below that relates to the charging method you are using.
Charging while the battery is attached to the camera:
Make sure the battery is firmly attached and the AC adapter is securely connected.
If your camera can charge the battery with a USB connection, use the built-in USB cable to connect it to the computer. If you use a USB charger instead of the computer, check the compatibility of the USB charger.
Turn off the camera. The battery is does not charge if the camera is turned on.
Charging using the battery charger:
If the CHARGE lamp does not light or blinks when charging, the terminals may be dirty. Wipe the dust away with a dry cloth and charge the battery again.
Make sure the metal contacts on the battery are free of corrosion.
I had the same problem with the P10 not charging via USB, I purchased
mine second hand so it came with no charger. I assumed it would charge
by the USB cable but it did not, the red light flashes but doesn't
charge. Luckily I have an external battery charger for a different
camera i got some years ago that takes a similar battery , the P10
battery didn't fit properly so I had to place it at a 45 degree angle
into the charger making sure the outer contacts were lined up properly
and taped it into place. After an hour it was fully charged and the
camera is working fine. The charger is a 4.2 volt charger. New external
chargers can be picked up on ebay cheaply
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.
This camera not charged via PC, you can charge the battery only with wall charger(comes with box).When camera is plugged to PC, you can´t use it as a camera, only as a memory card.You can watch your stuff in PC( PC recognise a camera as a flash memory, no more).
So, this is normal..Charge your camera with wall charger(Full charge Red light not flash!, if light flashed camera is charging) Unplug and use as usually!
