This camera does not have a DC power socket. It only accepts the BLM-1 7.4volt lithium battery which takes 5 hours to charge. You can also buy the LBH-1 battery case which accepts 3 x CR-123A (3 volt) batteries. I am thinking of buying one of those and connecting DC power to the internal connectors inserting it into the camera's battery slot for prolonged desk top sessions.
My problem is: why does the case and the BLM-1 battery have 3 connectors to the camera "+ - and T" and how do the CR123A's provide the "T" connection?
Can you help so that I don't buy a LBH-1 in vain.
Many thanks if you can

Re: Powering the E-510 DSLR
The T is the thermister that the battery charger uses to determine the battery temperature and make sure it's not being damaged by high temperatures, you can safely ignore it when you hook up an external supply, it won't cause any errors on the camera or anything.
If you want to hook up a DC adapter to your camera just make sure it's a well regulated (a switching power supply should be just fine, like a wall adapter only they're typically much lighter weight but adapt AC to DC) and is the correct voltage. The reason I recommend a switching power supply is that traditional wall transformers only provide the rated voltage at rated load, meaning if you hook up a 12VDC 2A wall adapter to something that draws 1/2A it will have a significantly higher voltage that it has stamped on its case.

1) is the power source active (some wall sockets have a switch to render power there inactive -Australia)
2) is the charger plugged into an active power strip or an active wall socket?
3) is the charger damaged?
4) how long has the cell phone been charging? If the battery was completely discharged, it may take a bit for it to show a screen of it charging.
5) if the battery will not accept a charge, it will have to be replaced. Lithium batteries retain longer life spans if you charge them when power level is down to about 20 percent, NOT when they are completely discharged.
6) Better write down the battery number and amps when you pull the battery and keep it with phone documentation.
2.5 Watts sounds pretty high for an LED strip. If the batteries are paralled and the applied power is 1.5 Volts, then you will be pulling 1.6 amps - the batteries won't last long at all. The batteries are good for around 2500maH, (Milliamp hours). so figure you may get around 2 hours of life for the batteries.
Here are the steps for the no power problem: 1. Make sure you will install a new or fully charged battery/batteries into your camera. Please use lithium batteries Ni-Mh or rechargeable Batteries (2000 M.Amp or higher). 2. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera 3. Turn on your camera without the memory card. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty)
Its appealing simple; Probably you will be accepting sony handcam charger accepting a cable thats declared to fit into ur camcorder and again allegation the battery. For charging the EFORCE FH50 battery, you just allegation to admit that the of the aforementioned cable anon into the battery(DC-IN slot) and bung ur charger into the bank socket. It commonly takes 135 mins to absolutely allegation the battery. Once answerable the LED at tthe DC-IN aperture will about-face off. (During charging its yellow)
Make sure you have good strong batteries. "Strobe Charge" is what the camera says when it's sending power to the strobes that make the flash. It can take alot of juice and if you're using weak or old batteries they may not be able to handle the load.
I found with my DSLR that the Energizer Lithium batteries are great for cameras and have been using those exclusively in all my cameras. I just got the Aiptek about a month ago, have not changed batteries yet. My other digital video camera ran for over two months on one set of them, and I used it alot. It's on it's second set now and my husband has it.
