Question about Norcent Technologies DC-420 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery Will Not Charge

I have a Norcent DC 420. Normally, when I plug my camera into the charger, the light will flash green to signify it's charging. Now, when I plug it in nothing happens. No flashing, nothing. I left it plugged in, and the battery just would not charge. Not sure whether this is a issue with the charger or the battery. Or, something internal?

One thing though, when I plug the charger in, it still emits a faint high pitched noise. But, I just want to be sure before I order a new battery. Also, anyone know a good place to do that?

Hi amber_penn, battery charging problems usually come from two sources, the battery or the battery charger.

Check the contacts on both the battery and the charger for oxidation, dirt, etc. Try cleaning the contacts with a little alcohol on a swab. The charger seemed to still work judging from the humming sound. Next step would be to buy a new battery.

Will not charge


Every rechargeable battery has a certain cycles of charging and discharging the battery. Not two batteries have the same life time. The amount of cycles a battery can have, can be influenced by the user. If you leave a battery without charging or discharging for months or even years, the lifetime can be shortened. That is why most of the time you get warranty on the equipment, but almost never on a battery. (sometimes a warranty of 90 days is given on a battery.)
Still when a battery won't charge, you could check all the parts in the chain. The AC / DC power convertor / charger the power cable.
When the light on the charger comes on, you can assume the charger is working.
If you can charge the battery in the camera everything looks the same. As soon as the green light comes on (starts to flash slow) you can assume the AC adopter is working. The charging of a fully discharged battery should take about 4 hours.
If the green light does not flash at all, check the adopter and check the USB cable. Be aware as long as the cable is in the camera, it can't be switched on. So before testing if the battery is charged, remove the USB cable.
Last but not least, if you have a multimeter, you could try to measure the voltage of the battery. It should be a little above the 3.7 volt that is printed on the battery. If not you can be sure the battery is no good at all.

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)

Battery charger


I had the same problem as this.
what i did was...
i kept putting the battery on the charger then took it off as soon as the red light came on.
i did this about 6 times.
doing this puts a bit of charge in the battery each time before the charger starts to flash.
after the battery as got enough charge in it it can start to charge.
hope this helps.

Camera will not charge the battery


Well. Ive got the same problem only ive gone thru 3 batteries trying to figure out what the problem is. When i plug it in to charge the light turns red , then within 5 sec's turns green. It stays green but never charges the battery. After 24 hours, its still a dead battery. Im just assuming since its 5 years old that the internal charger is shot. Looking for a new camera at this time.
